    stevenaia Michinaga: was thinking about "groundedness" or being grounded (again)
    Paradise Tennant: ok
    Paradise Tennant: great choice
    Ninja Easterman: ah....hmmm
    stevenaia Michinaga: how it relates to dropping things and opening up
    stevenaia Michinaga: seems the term should be something else as the more you drop the lighter, not heavier you should be
    Paradise Tennant: what kind of things would like to drop
    stevenaia Michinaga: yes someone with their head in the clouds would not be considered grounded
    stevenaia Michinaga: (a word issue)
    stevenaia Michinaga: I travel lightly, I have to look hard to find things to drop
    stevenaia Michinaga: but I’m sure there's "stuff" that weighs me down
    Paradise Tennant: ;)
    stevenaia Michinaga: the difficulty is finding it, which is its own journey
    Paradise Tennant: yes
    Paradise Tennant: selective shedding
    stevenaia Michinaga: yes, to find what to leave behind
    Ninja Easterman: i dropped out ah the conversation because a emails.........lol
    stevenaia Michinaga: nods
    stevenaia Michinaga: dropping emails, a good start
    Paradise Tennant: no worries one of the lovely things about chat .easy to catch up
    Paradise Tennant: hmm if I wanted to be more grounded ..i think I would first drop all the noise
    Paradise Tennant: the outside noise and the inside mental chatter
    Paradise Tennant: *noise
    Paradise Tennant: but not the music !

    Ninja Easterman: its fiberglass could make a boat.....ha ha
    Paradise Tennant: nods good thought
    Ninja Easterman: get more beer,,,,
    Paradise Tennant: lol
    Paradise Tennant: lol
    Mary Korpov: No, can't get it wet
    Paradise Tennant: well there are amphibian autos ..do not have the cache of a vet ..but you can get them wet!
    Mary Korpov: They generally do not have 400 horse power
    Ninja Easterman: have to take it apart make boat....lol
    Mary Korpov: Never happen
    Mary Korpov: I'd rather stay on the island than defile a Corvette
    Paradise Tennant: why do you like your vet so well mary .. ?
    Mary Korpov: Ever driven one?
    <place w:st="on">Paradise</place> Tennant: nope
    Ninja Easterman: i been working my whole life to get to an island why leave ,,,,lol
    Mary Korpov: If you like driving, and you drove one, you'd know. 0-60 in a little over 4 seconds is one reason
    Ninja Easterman: oh yeah i like corvette
    Mary Korpov: Plus it's a work of art on wheels
    Paradise Tennant: well then we have consensus .. being on a deserted island with beer and a corvette is a plan :)
    Mary Korpov: I find the Corvette stunningly beautiful
    Paradise Tennant: yes
    --<city w:st="on"><place w:st="on">BELL</place></city>--
