    Yakuzza Lethecus: actually that haha, is the most annoying thing i´ve acquired so far
    Storm Nordwind: It is certainly ejection bait
    Bruce Mowbray: ;-)
    Yakuzza Lethecus: hmm, a navi theme song ?
    Bertram Jacobus: would be possible as such yes
    Bruce Mowbray: haha

    A visitor arrives who did not want their name included. I have susbtituted random characters instead.

    Bertram Jacobus: hello Rqjayl
    --BELL--
    Yakuzza Lethecus: hello Rqjayl
    Rqjayl Erirfgry: hello
    Storm Nordwind: Hi Rqjayl - just checking whether you're OK with the recording today
    Bruce Mowbray: Hello, Rqjayl
    Bertram Jacobus: ah. you were already here before Rqjayl? :-)
    Rqjayl Erirfgry: yes
    Bertram Jacobus: ok. but we didn´t meet yet i guess - so : nice to meet you ! :-)
    Rqjayl Erirfgry: nice to meet you, too
    Bertram Jacobus: may i ask ? what do you like most in sl ? :-)
    Bruce Mowbray: [was that addressed to Rq or to all of us?]
    Rqjayl Erirfgryl: i like exploring in sl
    Bertram Jacobus: hehe. to rq but to all is also a very nice idea bruce - so to all now :-)
    Bruce Mowbray: Well, SL seems to compensate for my being quite isolated in RL.
    Bertram Jacobus: it´s odd : when one looks at the groups of ones profile, very often only very few members are to be ssen in there. and not the person, you took the goup insight from ... hm

    Being a hermit.

    Bruce Mowbray: Although I prefer being a hermit -- there are times when I simply need social interaction.
    Bruce Mowbray: of a particular sort. . .
    Bertram Jacobus: i see. interesting bruce. so why is that ? you have friends, you travel sometimes - is it because of the region you live now ? because it is quite so to say calm ? ...
    Bruce Mowbray: I've been in SL only six months, and this group provides the sort of interaciton I am looking for.
    Bertram Jacobus: yes. i think, we are beings which originally are used to live in groups
    Bruce Mowbray: Yes, it is the geography, mostly.
    Bruce Mowbray: I am simply too far from the "action" that happens in cities.
    Bertram Jacobus: so it´s normal to feel such needs . i think that is quite obvious isn´t it ?
    Bruce Mowbray: Yet, tomorrow and Saturday is will spend the entire day in a nearby city (doing a peace vigil).
    Bruce Mowbray: and nexk week I will spend five days in New York -- with a neighbor who lives a mile down the same road I live on.
    Bertram Jacobus: ah ! oh ! :-)
    Bruce Mowbray: but always returning to solitude at the farm.
    Bruce Mowbray: So, to summarize, SL provides connection, conversation, and variety that I simply do not have in RL.

    City of scars.

    Bertram Jacobus: i only visited ny once and that was still in the time where it was very dangerous and so not so comfortable ... ;-)
    Bruce Mowbray: on to the next person, now.
    Bruce Mowbray: Oh New York is very safe and exciting now.
    Bertram Jacobus: i know. you talked about it bruce
    Bertram Jacobus: but in former times, there were very dangerous conditions there ...
    Storm Nordwind: I know, I still have the scars ;-)
    Bertram Jacobus: scars ? real ones or in your mind storm ?
    Storm Nordwind: And the difference is?
    Bertram Jacobus: physically versus psychological ? ;-)
    Storm Nordwind: They're just as real as each other. Let's just call them "experience" :)
    Bertram Jacobus: okey
    Bertram Jacobus: that word i had also in my mind : my experiences there were really interesting
    Storm Nordwind: All experiences can be interesting - or boring. It's entirely up to you as the one experiencing them.
    --BELL--
    Bertram Jacobus: entire - is such a big word ...
    Storm Nordwind apologizes for seeming didactic and generalizing beyond himself :)
    Bertram Jacobus: you may know storm : for such subtile researchings my knowledge of the english language is far not good enough - so ... i wouldn´t have noticed or don´t understand totally ... sry plz ... :-)
    Storm Nordwind smiles at his friend :)
    Bertram Jacobus: ty and aww - so kind ! ... :-)

    Time to go.

    Bruce Mowbray is on RL phone. . .
    Bertram Jacobus: and right now an ordered new cellphone arrived ! the postman brought it - so ... i´ll log out and will check it ! bye and - may all beings be happy plz ! *wave* ...
    Storm Nordwind: Bye!
    Storm Nordwind waves
    Bertram Jacobus: and ty , all ... :-)
    --BELL--
    Storm Nordwind: Excuse me gentlefolk, I must go
    Storm Nordwind: Namaste
    Bruce Mowbray: Me too. Namaste, Storm.
