    stevenaia Michinaga: I just came from the exhibit, posted my contribution :)
    Paradise Tennant: oh cool
    Paradise Tennant: what did you end up deciding on
    Paradise Tennant: do we post them ourselves was not sure ?
    stevenaia Michinaga: having given up, I went to the exhibit...
    stevenaia Michinaga: I put mine up, but the notcard is attached to the board, not the artwork, a puzzle for Storm
    stevenaia Michinaga: he is around here somewhere , I assume working on the Cafe relocation
    Paradise Tennant: ahh kk
    stevenaia Michinaga: so looking at one of bleu's contributions, I was staring at an image of my former self looking back at me
    Paradise Tennant: smiles yes I know the one
    stevenaia Michinaga: realizing that when the exhibit was annouced I was that avatar, now I am this, I suppose my old self looking back might have been equally puzzeling
    stevenaia Michinaga: so I snapped a picture of me looking puzzled at me
    stevenaia Michinaga: :)
    Paradise Tennant: perfect !
    Paradise Tennant: captures everything
    stevenaia Michinaga: I gave Bleu much credit for the work... smiles
    stevenaia Michinaga: so from no ideas to is it the picture I took, or should I become on old self and snap a third picture of him looking at her looking at me
    Paradise Tennant: smiles the lovely thing about creativitiy is that you play with it :)
    stevenaia Michinaga: and once it starts it tends not to stop, like a fountain
    stevenaia Michinaga: thank you, I look much much better at night :)

    Paradise Tennant: accepting this moment as it is .. is perfect
    Paradise Tennant: what should be ..
    Paradise Tennant: not necessarily letting go of the desire to improve or change but ..
