    Lucinda Lavender: village
    Eliza Madrigal: I think it will be nice to walk to easily from one spot to another... we'll see how the rhythm seems affected I suppose
    Lucinda Lavender: seems easier
    Eliza Madrigal: yes, and we may get more visitors which may be nice
    Lucinda Lavender: :)
    Lucinda Lavender: Do you think I should remove the star box for any reason?
    Eliza Madrigal: Not at all...
    Lucinda Lavender: to be conserving of energy or resources in any way?
    Eliza Madrigal: You are very considerate but your box doesn't take many prims or anything....

    Archmage Atlantis: Truth
    Archmage Atlantis: I like pp who speak up
    Lucinda Lavender: sometimes I feel chatterboxish...

    Lucinda Lavender: caught up with my own stories I suppose
    Archmage Atlantis: Sorry, interrupting the silences.......but most men aren't able to process words very vell
    Eliza Madrigal: See my tag Lucinda? :)
    Lucinda Lavender: no Eliza I do not see it any more
    Eliza Madrigal: I feel like that often actually, as though I'm chattering... but I love your stories, Lucinda
    Lucinda Lavender: used to say Siworae
    Eliza Madrigal: Yes, now it says "Chatterbox"
    Eliza Madrigal: It is a tag I made months ago... hahha
    Lucinda Lavender: well ...mine should too:)
    Eliza Madrigal: You can join... It is called 'subtext' in my groups :)
    Lucinda Lavender: would love too
    Lucinda Lavender: had a dream once about eating at the chatterbox cafe:)
    Eliza Madrigal: Really? Is that a spot from your imagination?
    Lucinda Lavender: no that is from Prairie Home Companion in the monologue
    Eliza Madrigal: Ah, nice :)) Love Garrison Keiler... but I don't remember that
    Eliza Madrigal: Keilor?
    Lucinda Lavender: Keillor I think)
    Eliza Madrigal: I love his English major skits...
    Lucinda Lavender: yes
    Lucinda Lavender: were you an english major?
    Archmage Atlantis: Keller, of course
    Lucinda Lavender: Keillor
    Eliza Madrigal: No, Psycholpogy/Anthropology actually....
    Lucinda Lavender: Hi Stevenaia:)
    Eliza Madrigal: Hi Steve :)) How dazzling you are!
    Archmage Atlantis: Wow, Steve
    stevenaia Michinaga: hello, how is germany Elisa?
    Archmage Atlantis: Not as reserved as I have known you in the past
    Eliza Madrigal: but I usually had crushes on English majors Lucinda....
    Eliza Madrigal: Oh wish I knew Steve!
    Lucinda Lavender: :)
    Eliza Madrigal: :)
    stevenaia Michinaga: oh, thought you were there)
    Eliza Madrigal: Alas, no
    Eliza Madrigal: I always impose myself though....
    Eliza Madrigal: heheh
    Lucinda Lavender: how would presence  seem  imposing?
    Eliza Madrigal: What I mean is that I consider myself there.
    Eliza Madrigal: in a way
    Archmage Atlantis: May I?
    Lucinda Lavender: oh that makes sense...
    Eliza Madrigal: I do the same if I'm listening to a teaching, etc
    Archmage Atlantis: My thought is that the visual here is closer to rl
    Lucinda Lavender: I get excited and cannot type.
    Eliza Madrigal: I factor myself in as though my questions are on the table to be answered too
    Eliza Madrigal: :))
    Lucinda Lavender: super!
    Lucinda Lavender: that is great...
    Lucinda Lavender: Being as if...
    Eliza Madrigal: Oh!
    Eliza Madrigal: yes :) Playing as is
    Archmage Atlantis: The next step, imo, is living as if
    Lucinda Lavender: yes
    Eliza Madrigal: yes Arch... what do you think about that?
    Archmage Atlantis: I think all of you are saying what needs to be said
    Lucinda Lavender: what might be an interesting thing to ponder tonight?
    Eliza Madrigal: I know I make comparisons a lot, but in dream circle there is a larger weave... so maybe a sense that one person speaks according to the capacity of the whole to hear/particpate/partake...
    Lucinda Lavender: yes..
    Lucinda Lavender: and in the d.c. there is the listening that is going on beyond any personal stories...
    Eliza Madrigal: mmm, yes

    Archmage Atlantis: There was a Dr. Who episode, from BBC America.........the people of Great Britain had captured the starwhale, and were torturing it to travel from the dying earth.....They did not understand the whale had come to the cries of their children
    Eliza Madrigal: responding to a calling out...
    Lucinda Lavender: a bigger picture then...
    Eliza Madrigal: Hi Solo!
    stevenaia Michinaga: hello solobill
    Lucinda Lavender: Hi SoloBill
    stevenaia Michinaga: ltns
    Eliza Madrigal: Fantastic to see you :)
    Solobill Laville: Hi everyone :)
    Lucinda Lavender: description of a story Solobill in which people have looked at a situation with out seeing the whole thing...
    Lucinda Lavender: and a whale is a big thing...
    Solobill Laville listens
    Archmage Atlantis: A starwhale is even bigger
    Eliza Madrigal: :)
    Lucinda Lavender: Don't really know Dr Who...but have had certain situations that remind me of this...
    Eliza Madrigal: of missing the heart or point of a matter?
    Lucinda Lavender: yes
    Eliza Madrigal: yes me too ... quite often actually
    Archmage Atlantis: Comes from being human
    Archmage Atlantis: Or Navi
    Lucinda Lavender: :)
    Lucinda Lavender: wondering if anyone has had the experience of suddenly understanding why everything went as it did..
    Lucinda Lavender: that seems like a human tendency as well
    Archmage Atlantis: Explain Ms. lavendar
    Solobill Laville: hindsight? understanding?
    Eliza Madrigal: I've had moments of seeing a kind of elegance in retrospect that there certainly didn't seem along the way
    Lucinda Lavender: dang...thought I was off the hook...:)
    Eliza Madrigal: haha
    Solobill Laville: you asked the question... ;)
    Eliza Madrigal: :)
    Lucinda Lavender: well in my life history...I have collected my dreams
    Archmage Atlantis: There is nothing to fear here......the fear to be defeated will come later
    Lucinda Lavender: and found that they had special information that would mean something later
    Eliza Madrigal: Ah, nods
    Lucinda Lavender: and then it became understandable why I have collected them I guess
    Lucinda Lavender: I have had the honor of discussing dream with a child who has experienced death...
    Lucinda Lavender: And I dreamed of her before she was born
    Eliza Madrigal: oh my
    Lucinda Lavender: and she has had now the experience of losing a father as I did as a child...
    Solobill Laville: So this is recurring, then?
    Archmage Atlantis: I understand
    Lucinda Lavender: the circlular motion sort of
    Archmage Atlantis: In rl, I have died 3 or 4 x
    Eliza Madrigal: Oh :( And you were 'ready' to comfort her do you think? familiar with her?
    Eliza Madrigal: ready*
    Lucinda Lavender: yes
    Eliza Madrigal: I've met a few people in life that made my heart leap up like "OH it is YOU!"
    Solobill Laville: > Arch; what do you mean in rl you have died 3 or 4x?
    Eliza Madrigal: oh, lovely Lucinda. That must have helped her

    Archmage Atlantis: I was clinically dead 3 or 4 times
    Archmage Atlantis: After an car wreck, in an ICU, 45 days.......they kept bringining me back
    Eliza Madrigal: oh wow
    Lucinda Lavender: yes wow
    Archmage Atlantis: I thought I had told that story a lot of times.....
    Solobill Laville: You may have; but I haven't heard it, glad to have you 'back' :)
    Lucinda Lavender: this one I am honored to hear now... the stuff others see, or claim to see, I did not see
    stevenaia Michinaga: I must leave, night all
    Archmage Atlantis: That I did not, does nothing to disprove others do
    Solobill Laville: Night, S-
    Eliza Madrigal: Night Steve :)
    Lucinda Lavender: night Steve:)
    Eliza Madrigal giggles at the way Steve flies through the pagoda top ..
    Archmage Atlantis: That was very brave of you Steve, if you decide to read the log
    Lucinda Lavender: thinking that the experience of near death must open ones eyes to a bigger picture or experience
    Archmage Atlantis: My thought......is that it opens the third eye to life
    Solobill Laville: Or to what's important, perhaps (?)
    Eliza Madrigal: yes zeroing in...
    Archmage Atlantis: Not very rational
    Lucinda Lavender: would the third eye then be a spiritual eye in particuar?
    Archmage Atlantis: I have only feelings in this.....thoughts are not to be trusted
    Lucinda Lavender: an eye that notices shifts of consciousness?
    Archmage Atlantis: A third eye, yes.......you tear that out of me
    Lucinda Lavender: or perhaps notices what is really important
    Eliza Madrigal: There is something to be said for these openings I think... Sometimes one has an experience and then it takes years for it to catch up... sort of like the retrospect question
    Eliza Madrigal: and for another there is learning and plugging along... nothing really special it seems... but subtle softeness kicks in perhaps :)
    Lucinda Lavender: ripening
    Eliza Madrigal: yes :))
    Eliza Madrigal: Ah, so late and I need to be up early tomorrow
    Eliza Madrigal: Such a pleasure to share space with you all for a while though. Thank you
    Lucinda Lavender: nodding
    Archmage Atlantis: I apologize
    Eliza Madrigal: apologize?
    Solobill Laville: Yes, night folks
    Eliza Madrigal: And great to see you Solo :)
    Solobill Laville: You, too!

    Lucinda Lavender: nice to see you Solo...may you all have great weekends...
    Solobill Laville: night all :)
    Eliza Madrigal: thank you Lucinda, for the interesting before bed topic too... hmmm
    Lucinda Lavender: and good ice cream
    Eliza Madrigal smiles!!!
    Lucinda Lavender: :)
    Lucinda Lavender: rest well:)
    Eliza Madrigal: Be well
    Lucinda Lavender: Arch are you headed somewhere special?
    Archmage Atlantis: No, I am here
    Lucinda Lavender: special since you have changed your outfit to one of a fancier sort
    Archmage Atlantis: Nimbus is trying to hang on
    Archmage Atlantis: Yes
    Lucinda Lavender: can't see nimbus
    Lucinda Lavender: tonight I am going to watch a movie called Babies
    Lucinda Lavender: ah here they are...
    Archmage Atlantis: I suppose I should ask, who they are
    Archmage Atlantis: But I shan't
    Lucinda Lavender: your freddie and frederica and Koya
    Darkeagle Darkstone: hi
    Lucinda Lavender: they were hidden before and now are seen
    Archmage Atlantis: Oh, well brown snake only gets in at important times....when I am mute
    Lucinda Lavender: Hi Darkeagle!
    Darkeagle Darkstone: How have you been?
    Lucinda Lavender: Have you been here before?
    Darkeagle Darkstone: no
    Lucinda Lavender: Do you mind being recorded? we have sessions that are placed at the Play as Being Wiki...
    Lucinda Lavender: notecard coming...
    Darkeagle Darkstone: not at all
    Darkeagle Darkstone: record a way
    Darkeagle Darkstone: I hope I am not interrupting any thing.
    Lucinda Lavender: We meet at 7 , I, 19:00 and 1 am
    Archmage Atlantis: sMILES/...... U ARE THE THINMG DK
    Lucinda Lavender: We take breaks every 15 minutes when the bell rings to be silent for 90 seconds
    Darkeagle Darkstone: ok
    Archmage Atlantis: Storm is haunting this place
    Lucinda Lavender: we started at 19:00...
    Lucinda Lavender: and people arrive and leave...
    Lucinda Lavender: we ponder being...
    Archmage Atlantis: Dark, we have spoken.....many moons have passed
    Darkeagle Darkstone: true
    Darkeagle Darkstone: and things are moving faster while we are all slowing down
    Archmage Atlantis: Feels that way, true brother
    Archmage Atlantis: It is who we are now

    Archmage Atlantis: The young shall be young, the old shall see
    Archmage Atlantis: And know there is nothing that can be done
    Archmage Atlantis: only shared
    Darkeagle Darkstone: and savored
    Darkeagle Darkstone: it is no acccident that our oldest memories often are the sweetest
    Archmage Atlantis: Lucinda?
    Lucinda Lavender: yes...I was just checking the yogurt
    Lucinda Lavender: :)
    Archmage Atlantis: homemade yogurt?
    Lucinda Lavender: yes
    Archmage Atlantis: way kewl
    Lucinda Lavender: husband is the maker of many fermenting things under this roof
    Archmage Atlantis: Oy vey
    Darkeagle Darkstone: My wife made her own for a while, but like the bread maker, it fell by the wayside
    Lucinda Lavender: ah..
    Lucinda Lavender: has she tried the no knead bread recipe? it has become the favorite here.
    Archmage Atlantis: Well, the grocery stores started to have bakeries
    Lucinda Lavender: :)
    Lucinda Lavender: and they work well too!
    Archmage Atlantis: I have baked bread, made cornbread, and attempted that indian bread with chickpeas in the last month
    Darkeagle Darkstone: no we haven't tried those yet. Ill have to look into it
    Lucinda Lavender: nice Arch:)
    Darkeagle Darkstone: Those are good skills to have
    Lucinda Lavender: there is this room with the waterheater in it...and that is where the concoctions are
    Lucinda Lavender: bread on the top in its 12-18hour rising
    Archmage Atlantis: I wish I could pass them to others.....being without children makes it more difficult......and I am a perfectionist
    Lucinda Lavender: maybe in your neighborhood...some wants to learn how to make something that you know how to make...
    Lucinda Lavender: met someone today who has collected some stuff a quilt could be made of...but she never gets to making it.
    Darkeagle Darkstone: or in here
    Lucinda Lavender: ah...yes in here
    Darkeagle Darkstone: I wonder if anyone has tried a cooking school in here yet.
    Lucinda Lavender: interesting idea:)
    Archmage Atlantis: Odd, quilts are another of my fascinations......but I wish to design them, not make them
    Archmage Atlantis: The beauty of the stitching is so beyond me
    Lucinda Lavender: I think the computer has inspired much of what gets made in the fermentarium
    Lucinda Lavender: Beauty..
    Lucinda Lavender: yes inspiring
    Darkeagle Darkstone: Quilts are a major investment in time , material and heart,
    Darkeagle Darkstone: but quilters would love new designs to play with
    Lucinda Lavender: I think so too...
    Darkeagle Darkstone: true about the computers and it will be interesting to see what happens when we absorb them
    Lucinda Lavender: how do you mean absorb?

    Darkeagle Darkstone: We are on the verge of merging ourselves with the technolgies we are developing
    Lucinda Lavender: ah...
    Darkeagle Darkstone: Lets just hope we don't turn out as ugly as the Borg on Star Trek
    Archmage Atlantis: I would like to give you both a notecard.......it is why I returned to SL
    Lucinda Lavender: cannot remember that fellow...:)
    Lucinda Lavender: thanks ...
    Darkeagle Darkstone: ok
    Lucinda Lavender: I am curious how the merging might happen
    Lucinda Lavender: the children I work with will see some interesting things...in their time
    Darkeagle Darkstone: it will be happening in multiple ways
    Darkeagle Darkstone: we will be building RL HUD systems,
    Darkeagle Darkstone: there are bio computers that will be implanted in us, and I will get the memory upgrade my wife thinks I need. I forget why
    Lucinda Lavender: I need to go soon but I am curious to read this conversation when I log it. I will have my spelling to fix:)
    Darkeagle Darkstone: then there are prosthetics that will become biomechanical upgrades
    Lucinda Lavender: I will need one too darkstone:)
    Darkeagle Darkstone: lol
    Lucinda Lavender: my preschoolers get to make robots each year...
    Lucinda Lavender: We use old material etc...and anything that looks like buttons and stuff
    Archmage Atlantis: you are both teachers?
    Lucinda Lavender: I am with preschool
    Darkeagle Darkstone: That is a great way to get them started on preparing for their future
    Archmage Atlantis: and you dark?
    Darkeagle Darkstone: I teach computer science
    Lucinda Lavender: they get to write stories about their guy that they build
    Lucinda Lavender: ah
    Darkeagle Darkstone: that sounds like a fun class
    Lucinda Lavender: they just got finished learning to take stuff apart
    Darkeagle Darkstone: most of our world leaders need to go back to preschool
    Lucinda Lavender: with screw guns etc...clippers (I was still talking about the preschoolers here...not the world leaders)  
    Archmage Atlantis: Sounds like I need to find a place to dance....too much intensity here

    Intensity of the conversation...perhaps my chatterboxing?  

    Darkeagle Darkstone: lol
    Darkeagle Darkstone: dance here
    Lucinda Lavender: well on this creative note I shall go...nice to meet you, Darkeagle
    Darkeagle Darkstone: I hope I didn't push Arch away
    Darkeagle Darkstone: bye
    Lucinda Lavender: bye:)
