    stevenaia Michinaga: hi Sophia

    stevenaia Michinaga: better wait till pillows rezz
    SophiaSharon Larnia: :)
    SophiaSharon Larnia: hi Zaldaan
    stevenaia Michinaga: finally
    SophiaSharon Larnia: that took a while :) how are you?
    stevenaia Michinaga: how are things Sophia, I am good
    SophiaSharon Larnia: things are great!


    stevenaia Michinaga: things are changing rapidly for me in a good way, so it is a prelude to great
    SophiaSharon Larnia: oh?
    stevenaia Michinaga: you know when it;s bad it's sometimes is very very bad, and when it;s good, things can get very very good too, will I am going from kinda bad to the the good
    SophiaSharon Larnia: things do cycle like that, it appears, but a bit much to take sometimes
    stevenaia Michinaga: the only constant is change " thing"
    SophiaSharon Larnia: smiles
    stevenaia Michinaga: it;s a wave you can ride ok swim against
    stevenaia Michinaga: *or
    SophiaSharon Larnia: it does seem like a choice you have to make
    stevenaia Michinaga: wei wu state
    SophiaSharon Larnia: spontenaity :)
    stevenaia Michinaga: it;s always a choice as to which gets you to where you are going
    stevenaia Michinaga: I suppose the path may be more important than the destination
    stevenaia Michinaga: Someone I work with is very stategic in his thinking of possibilities outcomes with what he may have to deal with in his position, but in the end, all that preparation can only assume one of the possible outcomes will fit into what he prepared himself for. (if that makes seence)
    SophiaSharon Larnia: makes total sense
    stevenaia Michinaga: I usually wait for something to happen then decide if it;s worth reacting to
    stevenaia Michinaga: saves oddles of time
    stevenaia Michinaga: many things take care of themselves
    SophiaSharon Larnia: it would be more stressful for him if something didnt turn out to correspond with one of his scenarios
    SophiaSharon Larnia: (laughs at her spelling tonight)
    stevenaia Michinaga: yes, that;s the one I don;t deal with :0
    SophiaSharon Larnia: :)
    SophiaSharon Larnia: its easy for me to say that i like to be the same, im not working at the moment
    stevenaia Michinaga: there are some things that do need attention
    stevenaia Michinaga: when we were in Priceton, there was one meditation where I saw myself being the bending tree in the very strong winds... that still resonates
    stevenaia Michinaga: *Princeton


    SophiaSharon Larnia: yes :) I remember, i havent thought of that in a while
    SophiaSharon Larnia: Ive had uch massive changes in the last 3 months, i dont know what the 'tree' is
    SophiaSharon Larnia: such*
    stevenaia Michinaga: me
    SophiaSharon Larnia: :)
    stevenaia Michinaga: I do miss your re-creation of the conference room when you got back to SL, what did yu do with it?
    SophiaSharon Larnia: its in my inventory, with all the other stuff i make ;)
    stevenaia Michinaga: :)
    SophiaSharon Larnia: an apt picture, thanks :) I'll think of the bending like a tree tonight
    stevenaia Michinaga: more like willow branches
    SophiaSharon Larnia: you said the path is more important than the destination, experientially
    stevenaia Michinaga: bundles of ssmall strong thigns
    stevenaia Michinaga: things
    stevenaia Michinaga: there really is no destinaltion
    stevenaia Michinaga: only journeys
    SophiaSharon Larnia: reveals furthur inperfection of the language... start at the end :)
    stevenaia Michinaga: and one start is just the end of something else
    stevenaia Michinaga: constant motion
    SophiaSharon Larnia: im reading much in that an typing it all ;)
    SophiaSharon Larnia: and not*
    SophiaSharon Larnia: i move and stop at the same time, moment to moment
    SophiaSharon Larnia: its like they are the same
    stevenaia Michinaga: times between no time
    SophiaSharon Larnia: im with paradise here, im blicking on no time ^^
    SophiaSharon Larnia: blinking*
    stevenaia Michinaga: you mean you are IM'g with Paradise?
    SophiaSharon Larnia: noo I read the logs sometimes, i heard her say that
    stevenaia Michinaga: nods
    SophiaSharon Larnia: read rather Ha!
    stevenaia Michinaga: right
    SophiaSharon Larnia: but each moment is another copy of yourself in it, like it hasnt moved
    SophiaSharon Larnia: and i dont have the words for it really
    stevenaia Michinaga: you are always you, even as you change, a running copy of sorts


    SophiaSharon Larnia: i had this dream the other night, that i was typing on a document, and had to keep the original intact, as I was writing and changing things, and saving the copy, I became terrified that I was altering the original
    stevenaia Michinaga: In that contect, everything is the same and everything is different each moment brings much together to me, how can things be the same things yet even at the smallest level they change, atoms move, weather changes, yet they are still atoms and weather... and us
    SophiaSharon Larnia: yes
    stevenaia Michinaga: every and nothing is the same at the same time
    SophiaSharon Larnia: smiles
    stevenaia Michinaga: *everything
    stevenaia Michinaga: nice when things that souldn;t make sence begin to clearify themselves
    SophiaSharon Larnia: :) I read the sentence like the atoms and wheather too, i guess, fills in an imprint thats there
    SophiaSharon Larnia: weather* (ah forget it :) )
    SophiaSharon Larnia: i have a big fat cat on my lap and cant type
    stevenaia Michinaga: haha, that is usually my Rl position, cant on my arms while hands atempt to) type
    SophiaSharon Larnia: he's half on half off the chair
    SophiaSharon Larnia: ha!
    stevenaia Michinaga: I;ve posted pic of my cat on me in some logs
    SophiaSharon Larnia: heheh
    SophiaSharon Larnia: i also notice that when im thinking about something like this, i turn my attention to the mundane lol
    SophiaSharon Larnia: it happens all day :)
    stevenaia Michinaga: this "stuff" is nothing but mundane in the scheme of things, my spouse has a less delicate word for it
    SophiaSharon Larnia: yes I understand :) hahah
    SophiaSharon Larnia: really
    stevenaia Michinaga: hehe
    stevenaia Michinaga: I am very captivated by such things
    SophiaSharon Larnia: some people seemed wired that way? I ve wondered over the years
    stevenaia Michinaga: I jsut enjoy looking at things in new ways
