Nazmir is a swampy region that, like all three Zandalar zones, is filled with dangerous, aggressive creatures. When I’m on a mission here, I sometimes linger to fish, always watching my back. Many parts of the zone remind me of the wilderness rivers I fished in Florida, my home state. Beautiful places, peaceful for the most part.
Only once did I have a dangerous encounter with a hostile creature, an alligator. My husband and I had a string of several large mouth bass hanging off the side of our jon boat (a small flat-bottom boat). We were trolling with a little electric motor when a gator spotted our fish and figured it had a free lunch. Gators are stealthy, so it was almost up to the boat before we spotted it. Quickly I pulled in the string while he cranked up the gas motor – and away we went.
I started the blog called "Educating Lotus" in 2011, shortly after I began exploring the virtual world Second Life. With friends I met there, I migrated my virtual life to World of Warcraft (WoW) and joined an educators' guild. Lotus Greene is my gamer name, one I kept when I started another blog in 2015 called "Not Quite Ignored," which originally focused on the lighter side of news and now also includes political news and opinions.
