    Bruce Mowbray: a special occasion?
    Lucinda Lavender: well brace yourself.
    Bruce Mowbray: yes.....?
    Lucinda Lavender: coworker died one hour ago...
    Lucinda Lavender: just got the call and am shaking
    Bruce Mowbray: Oh my goodness, Luci. I am so sorry.
    Bruce Mowbray: Yes.
    Lucinda Lavender: hers was an expected one tho
    Lucinda Lavender: I am not surprised
    Lucinda Lavender: cancer
    Bruce Mowbray: mmmm. it is always still a sort of shock.
    Lucinda Lavender: oh yes
    Bruce Mowbray: I am so sorry.
    Lucinda Lavender: and tomorrow I go to a friends memorial
    Bruce Mowbray: another friend....
    Lucinda Lavender: ...the bridge builder
    Lucinda Lavender: yes
    Lucinda Lavender: did I tell you before about him?
    Bruce Mowbray: Can you handle all of this, Luci?
    Lucinda Lavender: well yes
    Lucinda Lavender: Calvino is coming over soon
    Bruce Mowbray: good. He is a good man.
    Lucinda Lavender: just for support
    Bruce Mowbray: in RL, you mean?
    Lucinda Lavender: yes
    Bruce Mowbray: good.
    Bruce Mowbray: I learned this afternoon how to "claim" a session.
    Bruce Mowbray: So, if you need me to do that tonight, I will.
    Lucinda Lavender: all my family is on the east coast
    Bruce Mowbray: yes --
    Lucinda Lavender: oh! cool! I already did.
    Bruce Mowbray: OK.
    Lucinda Lavender: but have you done it before?
    Bruce Mowbray: I did it for the first time this afternoon.
    Lucinda Lavender: cool
    Bruce Mowbray: I have already posted the chat log.
    Lucinda Lavender: great! I will read about it then
    Lucinda Lavender: read it I mean
    Bruce Mowbray: It was a good session -- only four of us present -- and a good chat.
    Lucinda Lavender: were there any surprises for you?
    Lucinda Lavender: brb...getting pizza heated
    Bruce Mowbray: Wel. . . I learned that in Japan they grow cubic watermelons.
    Bruce Mowbray: that was a surprise.
    Bruce Mowbray: I learned that Qt does not like to drink alcoholic beverages... evenb though he lives in Italy.
    Bruce Mowbray: that was another surprise.
    Lucinda Lavender: laughing about watermelons!
    Bruce Mowbray: he he!
    Bruce Mowbray: good to hear you laugh, Luci.
    Lucinda Lavender: I bet they store better that way...
    Bruce Mowbray: yes, that's the idea.
    Lucinda Lavender: to save space
    Bruce Mowbray: yes. There is a link to a photo of them -- inside the chat.
    Bruce Mowbray: I'd never heard of such a thing.
    Lucinda Lavender: how great!
    Bruce Mowbray: ;-)
    Bruce Mowbray: And in Italy it is cucumber day!
    Lucinda Lavender: celebration for them?
    Bruce Mowbray: something about the mid-summer and the coolness of cucumbers.
    Bruce Mowbray: yes.
    Lucinda Lavender:makes sense
    Bruce Mowbray: Qt explained it -- but I don't remember all of it.
    Bruce Mowbray: anyway ---- I named the session "Cubic Cucumbers."
    Bruce Mowbray: [my very first session!]
    Lucinda Lavender: nodding and smiling
    Lucinda Lavender: in dream circle we often think that the first dream a person brings can be special...
    Bruce Mowbray: yes... please say more.

    Bruce Mowbray: I've attended that group only once.
    Bruce Mowbray: Any my dream was about "options."
    Bruce Mowbray: And.
    Lucinda Lavender: I think that the specialness is connected to the other dreams weaving together...
    Lucinda Lavender: the feeling of that...
    Bruce Mowbray: "the other dreams" meaning others' dreams?
    Lucinda Lavender: yes...
    Bruce Mowbray: Hi, Pamala!
    Bruce Mowbray: ok.
    Lucinda Lavender: Hi Pamala
    Pamala Clift: sorry didnt mean to stand on you
    Pamala Clift: hello Burce & Lucy
    Bruce Mowbray: you cqan stand on me any time you like!
    Pamala Clift: smile
    Lucinda Lavender: Been here before?
    Bruce Mowbray: The think tank was really good today!
    Pamala Clift: it did surprise me how many facets came out that I had not supposed
    Lucinda Lavender: just wondering if you would need a note card and the information that this is a recorded session.
    Pamala Clift: np. I have given permission
    Lucinda Lavender: If that is not ok I can delete you name...
    Lucinda Lavender: thanks:)
    Pamala Clift: I dont say anything all that profound.. smile
    Bruce Mowbray: ;-)
    Bruce Mowbray: Have you been thinking about the "body's memory"?
    Bruce Mowbray: That seemed like a new idea to you, Pam.
    Pamala Clift: yes.. I understand that your body remembers how to type and ride a bike, but not anything outside of that
    Bruce Mowbray: ok.
    Bruce Mowbray: It is quite an involved study among neurobiologists right now.
    Bruce Mowbray: They are discovering that there are quite complex neural networks around the heart and around the abdomen.
    Pamala Clift: I havent had any experience that I can recal that would indicate that touching me will bring back a memory
    Pamala Clift: as in a massage
    Bruce Mowbray: This has, perhaps, given rise to our thinking "I feel it in my heart" and "I feel it in my guts."
    Pamala Clift: nods.. yes I do get the feeling in my gut..
    Bruce Mowbray: Most of our memories, of course, are not conscious.
    Bruce Mowbray: and that's probably a good thing!
    Pamala Clift: that is what is what I have been pondering
    Bruce Mowbray: The mind doesw a wonderful job of sorting out that stuff.
    Bruce Mowbray: does.
    Pamala Clift: but if it sorts it out wrong....
    Bruce Mowbray: Yes, as with "numbing."
    Pamala Clift: and ties it to things that are not so or not related
    Bruce Mowbray: yes -- mis-connection can be a serious problem.
    Pamala Clift: how reliable is the whole thing
    Bruce Mowbray: serious.
    Bruce Mowbray: It is a very new science.
    Pamala Clift: we tell ourselves stories..
    Pamala Clift: and that becomes our perceptions
    Bruce Mowbray: Yes.
    Bruce Mowbray: All of our conscious memories are "stories."
    Pamala Clift: so this is really all fantasy .. real life and pixelated life.. so just make it up and have a good time.. smile
    Bruce Mowbray is hoping Luci is OK.
    Bruce Mowbray: No -- "stories" does not mean "make-believe."
    Bruce Mowbray: Stories means what we have done with experience that is no long here.
    Lucinda Lavender: Happy to sit and listen and eat my pizza but also have a place to be with others:)
    Pamala Clift: since nothing is really real.. it is
    Bruce Mowbray: Luci has had a rough evening, Pam.
    Pamala Clift: I am sorry to hear that Lucy.. physical or emotional?
    Lucinda Lavender: lost a coworker...
    Pamala Clift: in rl?
    Lucinda Lavender: yes
    Pamala Clift: sigh... my condolences for your loss.
    Lucinda Lavender: third death in 3 weeks
    Pamala Clift: is it work related? these things seem to come in threes..
    Lucinda Lavender: yes I taught with this woman for several years.
    Lucinda Lavender: I knew that things were worsening as of last night so I am not as surprised as one might be.
    Pamala Clift: death is a hard transistion.. sigh.. I hope it was not too painful

    Lucinda Lavender: please feel free to explore the topic at hand...I am quite curious about it and I am appreciating being here...
    Pamala Clift: what is the topic atm?
    Bruce Mowbray: I think we were talking about memories and "stories."
    Lucinda Lavender: yes...
    Bruce Mowbray: or is that just a story I am "remembering"?
    Pamala Clift: oh ...smile.. that was this mornings discussion at the roadside philosophers.. thought there was a topic here as well
    Bruce Mowbray: nope -- just whatever strikes your fancy.
    Pamala Clift: well I am still of the opinion that we create our story and a good portion of it is not real..
    Pamala Clift: such as.. I am a good student and it will get me a good job
    Bruce Mowbray: But what IS real, Pamala?
    Pamala Clift: nods.. and smiles.. exactly
    Bruce Mowbray: I think it is our stories that create a reality for us -- and each person's reality is slightly different.
    Bruce Mowbray: is.
    Pamala Clift: so if there is question on what reality is.. create for yourself the best possible story
    Bruce Mowbray: absolutely!
    Bruce Mowbray: If there IS a "reality" (capital R), then it will catch up with us soon enough.
    Pamala Clift: I have lost 66 real life pounds.. and am on my 4th round of my diet.. and right now I am aching.. lol
    Bruce Mowbray: One of the experiments we have been doing here (in a separate group called "Time Magic") is to see that every instant . . .
    Bruce Mowbray: what we "see" is arising. . .
    Pamala Clift: how do you do that?
    Bruce Mowbray: no past - no future - just this arising in each moment.
    Bruce Mowbray: fresh appearance.
    Pamala Clift: ah live in the moment
    Bruce Mowbray: yes.
    Bruce Mowbray: Perfectly fresh in this moment -- no other reality than that.
    Pamala Clift: yes right now I am safe, full, and have friends in my perception
    Bruce Mowbray: good. You're getting the hang of it!
    Pamala Clift: I do that with those I counsel
    Pamala Clift: when they whine about their real life
    Bruce Mowbray: yes. Can you say more about that?
    Bruce Mowbray: you.
    Pamala Clift: what is wrong .. right this second? pretty much nothing.. they are talking to me.. the sun is shining.. etc
    Pamala Clift: Hello rain
    Bruce Mowbray: yes. wonderful.
    Bruce Mowbray: Hello, Rain.
    Lucinda Lavender: This is my friend Rain...who is coming in to watch for a bit...
    Pamala Clift: glad to have you rain...
    Bruce Mowbray: wonderful. Good to have you with us, Rain!
    Rain Southpaw: hello!
    Pamala Clift: do you perceive your name rain as refreshing or sad?
    Bruce Mowbray muses: "Me thinks Pam is asking for a 'story.'"
    Rain Southpaw: refreshing, cleansing and what is needed wheree I live
    Pamala Clift: smile a perception on her story yes
    Pamala Clift: smile good
    Bruce Mowbray: If I may ask, Rain, where do you live?
    Rain Southpaw: I live in Austin, TX
    Lucinda Lavender: hi cal...
    Bruce Mowbray: Hello, Calvino!
    Calvino Rabeni: Good evening :)
    Pamala Clift: Hi Cal
    Bruce Mowbray: In Austin, TX, I'm sure that rain would feel good.
    Rain Southpaw: we have a big problem = have to conserve water
    Bruce Mowbray: get out your buckets!
    Rain Southpaw: thank u
    Bruce Mowbray: ;-)
    Lucinda Lavender: this afternoon I took out a sponge and washed my cars in the rain
    Bruce Mowbray: wow.
    Bruce Mowbray: Raining in the northwest, then.
    Lucinda Lavender: yes!
    Pamala Clift: are you in the nw Lucy?
    Lucinda Lavender: yes I am...
    Pamala Clift: washington state?
    Lucinda Lavender: yes...
    Pamala Clift: I am as well.. east or west side of the state?
    Bruce Mowbray: [the rainy side]
    Lucinda Lavender: Seattle
    Pamala Clift: I am on the other side.. smile
    Lucinda Lavender: ah!
    Pamala Clift: you teach at UW?
    Lucinda Lavender: across the street in a montessori preschool
    Pamala Clift: ah.. fresh new little minds.. smile
    Calvino Rabeni: :)
    Lucinda Lavender: yes.. they are:)
    Lucinda Lavender: One looked up yesterday and said..."I love you"
    Lucinda Lavender: like it was this matter of fact thing... and they only knew me two days
    Rain Southpaw: that is so innocent
    Lucinda Lavender: yes...
    Pamala Clift: would be nice if that is how we all are
    Lucinda Lavender: it was said with seriousness almost like an adult
    Bruce Mowbray: I worked with adults with mental retardation for 13 years.
    Bruce Mowbray: and I've had that same experience.
    Pamala Clift: well with their whole being they feel it.. with out reservation
    Lucinda Lavender: ah!
    Bruce Mowbray: And I've often thought -- I wish normal adults could be this frank and free with their loving.
    Calvino Rabeni: I need to adjust my browser - see you soon
    Pamala Clift: waves\
    Lucinda Lavender:  see you soon...
    Bruce Mowbray: ok, Cal.
    Rain Southpaw: he recognied u perhaps
    Lucinda Lavender: so simple for them
    Lucinda Lavender: it was a girl. and she was looking at the way I looked... 
    Lucinda Lavender: she was looking at my jewelry too as she said it
    Lucinda Lavender: it made me think that when we wear things that inspire a beautiful feeling we end up connected to it as she perhaps was also.
    Bruce Mowbray: That's a beautiful idea.
    Lucinda Lavender: something happens in the seeing...
    Bruce Mowbray: connected to Beauty.
    Rain Southpaw: She saw your Soul
    Bruce Mowbray: I agree, Rain.
    Lucinda Lavender: perhaps seeing and in the speaking
    Bruce Mowbray: I love to think that long before there were any humans around, that Nature was already Beautiful. . .
    Bruce Mowbray: and that we were born out of that Beauty.
    Rain Southpaw: YES
    Bruce Mowbray: There was already symmetry, and balance, and depth, and repetition. . .
    Bruce Mowbray: and we were born into that and out of that.
    Lucinda Lavender: it does inspire me to wear stones and shapes
    Bruce Mowbray: yes.
    Rain Southpaw: I am resonating with u Bruce
    Lucinda Lavender: so others can view it
    Bruce Mowbray: It is said that an infant stares at its mother's face -- because it recognizes the beauty there.
    Lucinda Lavender: for me it was the blue eyes...
    Rain Southpaw: yes, the stones have a lot to say to us - they are sentient beings
    Bruce Mowbray: ahhhh!
    Bruce Mowbray: Are there more things in heaven, and earth than are dreamt of in your philosophy, Pamala?
    Bruce Mowbray: heaven.
    Pamala Clift: a child imprints on its mother.. that becomes beauty.. that is where nourishment and comfort is associated with
    Bruce Mowbray: yes!
    Lucinda Lavender: currently I am wearing the blue chalcedony stone that reminds me of my conductors eyes...he died last saturday...
    Bruce Mowbray: It is biologically adaptive for the infant to do so.
    Pamala Clift: my philosophy is not limited that I know of..smile
    Bruce Mowbray: Oh my.
    Bruce Mowbray: Your "conductor" . . . ?
    Lucinda Lavender: That was what the child was looking at ...
    Lucinda Lavender: yes...killed in a car crash in a thunderstorm.
    Lucinda Lavender: look up osscs.org there is also a youtube channel now
    Lucinda Lavender: we sang requiems!

    Lucinda Lavender: so today I was thinking about how much the singers need to get together and sing
    Rain Southpaw: oh yes
    Lucinda Lavender: Pamala would you like to share where you are from?
    Lucinda Lavender: Have you ever heard of George Shangrow?
    Pamala Clift: I am very bad with names.. so no I don't remember him but I am reading about him..
    Pamala Clift: I am south of Spokane
    Lucinda Lavender: ah...
    Pamala Clift: in a little town
    Bruce Mowbray: Do you not see? How he shines ever brighter, soaring on high, stars sparkling around him?
    Lucinda Lavender: yes!
    Bruce Mowbray: what wonderful tributes.
    Lucinda Lavender: yes, I am so deeply touched
    Lucinda Lavender: to hear how universal his impression was
    Bruce Mowbray: a beautiful photo, too. So happy!
    Rain Southpaw: what an honor to have known him and sing with his conducting prowess'
    Pamala Clift: you know .. this might sound wrong.. ...but I have watched some grow old slowly and deteriorate in agony.. and I am not thinking this was a bad way to go..
    Lucinda Lavender: we are all changed
    Lucinda Lavender: I know what you are saying Pamala
    Pamala Clift: just a shock to everyone else
    Bruce Mowbray: agree totally, Pamala.
    Lucinda Lavender: beyond comprehension for many of us
    Rain Southpaw: agreee, too
    Rain Southpaw: and we all die
    Pamala Clift: I am getting to that age.. and listen to MR. B go to funeral after funeral of his friends.. sigh...
    Pamala Clift: becomes the social event at a certain age
    Lucinda Lavender: thinking...yes
    Bruce Mowbray: same here, Pam. In fact, this is the year of my 50th high school reunion -- and I am amazed how many have already gone.
    Rain Southpaw: that's right - I am hearing of so many I have known dying -
    Pamala Clift: wow 50th.. congrats
    Bruce Mowbray: I'm not going to it, though. . . I will be in New York that weekend! ;-)
    Pamala Clift: I think we need a movement to not make it so sad..
    Pamala Clift: leaving your nest Bruce?
    Bruce Mowbray: ha ha!
    Lucinda Lavender: tomorrow I go to a memorial for the bridge builder and there will be folk singing...
    Pamala Clift: that sounds like a lovely event..
    Rain Southpaw: that's beautiful
    Lucinda Lavender: at the daybreak star center...
    Lucinda Lavender: native american center
    Pamala Clift: I had a friend of mine who is a pilot offer to pick me up tomorrow and fly me to seattle..
    Lucinda Lavender: really?
    Pamala Clift: but I had no where to stay.. and he would be busy at work
    Lucinda Lavender: that is neat!
    Pamala Clift: so I told him no
    Rain Southpaw: wow
    Lucinda Lavender: you can stay at my house!
    Lucinda Lavender: my whole family is away...
    Pamala Clift: smile.. omg.. wouldnt that be a riot.
    Lucinda Lavender: it truly would
    Pamala Clift: now you have my mind thinking....
    Lucinda Lavender: the offer is there.
    Pamala Clift: if I have someone to stay with.. and we can go do things.. I would love it
    Bruce Mowbray: You are all welcome to fly to Ohio - - - ! and camp out here at the farm with Bear, Blub, and me!
    Pamala Clift: hehe..
    Pamala Clift: let me ask if the offer is still available
    Lucinda Lavender: cool!
    Lucinda Lavender: who knew
    Bruce Mowbray: [and won't the neighbors have something to talk about then!]
    Lucinda Lavender: the world is ever weaving
    Rain Southpaw: chuckles = sounds fun
    Pamala Clift: smile.. he isnt online now.. let me text him
    Pamala Clift: he is a linden.. smile
    Lucinda Lavender: Rain will be here in a few weeks!
    Lucinda Lavender: cool
    Bruce Mowbray: Oh my. . . Pamala knows the "gods."
    Bruce Mowbray thinks: I must try to behave.
    Bruce Mowbray changes mind -- That's no fun.
    Lucinda Lavender: My kids are all grown so they have empty rooms...
    Lucinda Lavender: empty of them...
    Pamala Clift: well I sent him a text
    Pamala Clift: we will see what he says.. smile.. they said I could have the time off work..
    Pamala Clift: so I would just leave them a msg that I wont be in
    Pamala Clift: oh giggle.. this could be fun
    Lucinda Lavender: cool...
    Bruce Mowbray: I love it!
    Bruce Mowbray: Hello, Ewan!
    Pamala Clift: well he was pouting that I wasnt able to hop on board
    Pamala Clift: hello Ewan.. bye rain
    Bruce Mowbray: bye, Rain.

    Ewan Bonham: Hi Folks...just have to get myself down to earth..
    Rain Southpaw: no
    Lucinda Lavender: she had an accidental standing event
    Pamala Clift: giggle
    Lucinda Lavender: laughing
    Bruce Mowbray: I seem to be having an accidental levitating event.
    Rain Southpaw: lol
    Pamala Clift: I am sending you my cell phone number
    Lucinda Lavender: good
    Lucinda Lavender: where will I find it?
    Bruce Mowbray: Wow, Ewan! You're all dressed up tonight!
    Lucinda Lavender: Hello Ewan
    Ewan Bonham: Felt like lavendar..
    Bruce Mowbray: Lookin' good, dude.
    Lucinda Lavender: nice!
    Ewan Bonham: Can you tell me how to get a pillow?
    Lucinda Lavender: your'e on my team
    Ewan Bonham: lol
    Bruce Mowbray: Just click on one of the cushions.
    Bruce Mowbray: No, not the pillows.... the cushions.
    Ewan Bonham: Not working
    Bruce Mowbray: mmmmm.....
    Bruce Mowbray: Pamala, you'll need to tell the Lindens about this.
    Pamala Clift: About what?
    Bruce Mowbray: The cushions don't work.
    Pamala Clift: About this meet up ..yeah I will
    Bruce Mowbray: Not for Ewan, anyway.
    Ewan Bonham: Alright, I am comfortable...
    Lucinda Lavender: Ewan...I had the same problem
    Lucinda Lavender: I had to click on the background first
    Ewan Bonham: Well, at least I am here now..
    Lucinda Lavender: Do you run both viewer one and two?
    Bruce Mowbray: My cushion (former cushion) works. Maybe you can try that one.
    Ewan Bonham: Thanks, Bruce
    Lucinda Lavender: nice!
    Bruce Mowbray: There you are!
    Lucinda Lavender: lovely
    Bruce Mowbray: I have a sort of "event" today.
    Ewan Bonham: Oh?
    Bruce Mowbray: No other guardians showed up for the 1 p.m. session, so I claimed it by default.
    Bruce Mowbray: It was my very first one.
    Bruce Mowbray: I've edited it now, and posted it on the wiki.
    Bruce Mowbray: 'I hope I got it all right.
    Ewan Bonham: Yaah! Took the plunge..
    Bruce Mowbray: yep.
    Bruce Mowbray: Have you claimed one yet, Ewan?
    Ewan Bonham: I have not yet..
    Ewan Bonham: I was edging into it..
    Bruce Mowbray: It was a total surprise for me...
    Ewan Bonham: I would like to soon.
    Ewan Bonham: And I like the idea of a talking stick..
    Bruce Mowbray: Qt and Pila encouraged me to go for it -- and they told me how to do it... and so I took the plunge.
    Bruce Mowbray: Cal brings a talking stick to every session, you know.
    Ewan Bonham: Oh, really..
    Bruce Mowbray: yep.
    Rain Southpaw: it's such enjoyment and contentment here
    Pamala Clift: Guess what....giggle
    Pamala Clift: he says his offer is still good..
    Bruce Mowbray: what?
    Bruce Mowbray: Coooool!
    Rain Southpaw: giggles
    Pamala Clift: so that would be way funny
    Bruce Mowbray: I went skinny-dipping today and am way tired. . .
    Pamala Clift: in real?
    Bruce Mowbray: [imagine a 67-year-old man doing that]
    Bruce Mowbray: yes, I did. So I will be going to bed now.
    Ewan Bonham: Why not?
    Pamala Clift: wow that sounds like childlike fun
    Rain Southpaw: sounds great
    Bruce Mowbray: it is wonderful.
    Bruce Mowbray: My dog likes it too. and he's older than I am -- in doggie years.
    Pamala Clift: so is my dog
    Ewan Bonham: lol
    Pamala Clift: byee bruce
    Bruce Mowbray: Lucinda, my thoughts and best wishes are with you.
    Ewan Bonham: Bye Bruce and ty

    Lucinda Lavender: By Bruce:)
    Lucinda Lavender: please excuse my being kind of not present...working on details here...
    Ewan Bonham: Oh, what was the topic, Lucinda?
    Calvino Rabeni: Well - the RL view has improved, but SL -- it's a hexagonal world, and I'm not sure what to do about it .... rebooting didn't restore nomalcy I'm afraid
    Ewan Bonham: Well, my topic is gratitude in each moment.
    Ewan Bonham: Helps me to stay presnt.
    Rain Southpaw: I am attempting to be more mindful in each moment
    Lucinda Lavender: topic was many things
    Ewan Bonham: Yes, Rain..
    Pamala Clift: the universe works very strange that is for sure..
    Rain Southpaw: and now I will go - thank u all - it's been nice to cross paths with you
    Ewan Bonham: Yes, and my peace of mind depends on my appreciating the turns and twists..
    Pamala Clift: nice meeting you rain
    Rain Southpaw: thank u Pamala - nice meeting all of you
    Ewan Bonham: Hope to see you again..
    Calvino Rabeni: Likewise Rain :)
    Calvino Rabeni: Stop by again sometime
    Rain Southpaw: love to you Lucinda - and yes I will be here again - thank u
    Lucinda Lavender: thanks for being here Rain...
    Lucinda Lavender: lovely..

    Calvino Rabeni: Gratitude really adds zest to the present
    Calvino Rabeni: Which feels like a natural state
    Ewan Bonham: Yes, we often forget that..
    Calvino Rabeni: I've also been sprinkling it liberally on the past and future too
    Calvino Rabeni: (rebaking textures, I sometimes think of it)
    Ewan Bonham: lol
    Calvino Rabeni: Has anyone seen that movie "Inception" ?
    Ewan Bonham: No
    Pamala Clift: I have
    Ewan Bonham: What is it about?
    Pamala Clift: it is about going into peoples dreams and stealing their secrets
    Calvino Rabeni: Shared dreaming, karma, guilt, anchoring in reality, among other things
    Ewan Bonham: stealing?
    Calvino Rabeni: I think it was about the main character resolving a very lot with his (deceased) ex wife
    Pamala Clift: yes you create an environment that they feel comfortable in sharing their ideas.. like corporate espinoge
    Calvino Rabeni: She still lived, in his dreamworld
    Calvino Rabeni: and he could encounter her there intensely
    Calvino Rabeni: as well as bring along other people to objectify the dream reality
    Calvino Rabeni: It also featured some delicious classic cliches
    Calvino Rabeni: Perhaps it will also in retrospect be seen as coining some new cliches!
    Calvino Rabeni: Civilization advances by the quality of its current cliches
    Calvino Rabeni: Or old cliches refurbished and freshened up
    Calvino Rabeni: For instance - the "last caper" cliche
    Calvino Rabeni: in which a criminal does one more job before going straight
    Calvino Rabeni: I love that one - it's so existential
