    Adams Rubble: Hello Arch :)
    Archmage Atlantis: ello, Adams


    Adams Rubble: How are you this morning?
    Archmage Atlantis: Hopeful
    Archmage Atlantis: and you?
    Adams Rubble: I am well, thank you
    Adams Rubble: I have been thinking about that word, hope
    Archmage Atlantis: ?
    Adams Rubble: It is one of the three things mentioned by Paul in I Corinthians 13
    Adams Rubble: Faith, hope and love
    Adams Rubble: I have been wondering why hope
    Archmage Atlantis: Yes, hope, faith and charity, as I remember
    Adams Rubble: Hello Eliza :)
    Archmage Atlantis: and the greatest of these is hope
    Eliza Madrigal: Hello Adams and Arch :)
    Archmage Atlantis: but perhaps that was a different movie script
    Archmage Atlantis: Hi, Eliza
    Adams Rubble: no the greatest is love :)
    Archmage Atlantis: Ah, love
    Eliza Madrigal: :)
    Archmage Atlantis: an often misused word
    Adams Rubble: would you care to say more about your hopefulness :)
    Adams Rubble: Hello Yakuzza :)
    Archmage Atlantis: Not right now, Adams. still I appreciate the question
    Yakuzza Lethecus: hey everyone
    Eliza Madrigal: Hi Yaku :)
    Adams Rubble: It would seem that the beginning of any spiritual quest would include hope
    Archmage Atlantis: :)
    Eliza Madrigal: maybe if hope is that thing that shows up when you one might have lost their sense of being able to figure things out one's self...
    Eliza Madrigal: -you
    Adams Rubble: the opposite of despair
    Eliza Madrigal: yes
    Eliza Madrigal: 'hope is the thing with feathers that perches in the soul'
    Eliza Madrigal: :) Emily
    Adams Rubble: :)
    Archmage Atlantis: That made my parrokeets comment
    Eliza Madrigal chirps back
    Archmage Atlantis: They seem to have gotten louder
    Archmage Atlantis: Good thing the windows are closed and I can't hear the wildlife in the woods
    Eliza Madrigal: why a good thing Arch? What would they be saying?
    Adams Rubble thinks it is a good thing the windows are closed here to keep the cold out
    Archmage Atlantis: We are all connected, we are each our own self. yet we are one
    Adams Rubble: yes Arch :)

    Expressing Oneself

    Eliza Madrigal: My daughter and I had a long talk yesterday, about what it means to be fully expressive of oneself while also considering others... the balances and sensitivities...
    Eliza Madrigal: what is kind
    Eliza Madrigal: I'm not sure we came to a sure conclusion but we laughed pretty hard while trying to figure it all out :)
    Adams Rubble: If expressing oneself includes airhorns....
    Adams Rubble: hehe
    Eliza Madrigal: :)
    Archmage Atlantis: The trying is the important part, the conclusion is not so much relevant
    Eliza Madrigal: she went through a few days of thinking that sometimes it does mean airhorns...
    Adams Rubble: :)
    Adams Rubble: brb
    Archmage Atlantis: sub brb
    Eliza Madrigal: and I questioned myself, asking if I was passing along a 'don't bother anyone' hang-up or teaching her consideration... who knows :)
    Adams Rubble: back
    Eliza Madrigal: :)
    Yakuzza Lethecus: wb
    Adams Rubble: young people sometimes may confuse seeking atttention and expressing onseself
    Adams Rubble: thus the airhorn :)
    Adams Rubble: maybe older people too :)
    Eliza Madrigal: yes, but it isn't so different from my own wrestlings as an ahem, older person.... concerning 'authenticity' in one's life and with others
    Eliza Madrigal: YES :)
    Adams Rubble: wrestling with ME
    Eliza Madrigal: she talked a lot about the masks we wear and asked me a question that stopped me in my tracks about peeling back mask after mask and realizing that sometimes we can't tell a difference between them... nodding... "me"

    Baby Fish Surviving

    Archmage Atlantis: I have a baby fish in my aquarium.........I can't imagine how he survived.......he or she showed up this week
    Eliza Madrigal: was born this week Arch?
    Archmage Atlantis: Doubt it
    Eliza Madrigal: hehe just showed up out of the blue in an aquarium?
    Archmage Atlantis: Probably 2 or 3 weeks ago
    Eliza Madrigal: Ah :)
    Archmage Atlantis: Just now got big and brave enuf for me to see
    Eliza Madrigal smiles
    Yakuzza Lethecus: :)
    Adams Rubble is hopeful for Arch's baby fish
    Eliza Madrigal: hehe
    Eliza Madrigal: hope he finds love
    Adams Rubble: or swims faster than the rest :)
    Eliza Madrigal: hahah
    Yakuzza Lethecus: or watch the others swimming faster
    Adams Rubble: Hello Bruce :)
    Yakuzza Lethecus: hey bruce
    Eliza Madrigal: Hi Bruce :)
    Archmage Atlantis: I wonder, do fish love?, do androids dream of electronic sheep?
    Eliza Madrigal: perhaps he's swimming in it and doesn't know... he's looking everywhere....

    The Planet is an Aquarium

    Yakuzza Lethecus: the aquarium as a world of it´s own
    Eliza Madrigal resists singing Pink Floyd songs...
    Archmage Atlantis: This planet is an aquarium, at least in my mind
    Archmage Atlantis: (or minds)
    Bruce Mowbray nods a greeting to Arch, Adams, Eliza, and Yaku - and listens.
    Adams Rubble: The planet is not limitless just like an aquarium
    Adams Rubble: we will swim in whatever we put into it
    Eliza Madrigal: aquarium mind
    Yakuzza Lethecus: minds can be a small aquarium or expand through the whole universe
    Eliza Madrigal: :)
    Adams Rubble liking the quarium metaphors
    Adams Rubble: aquarium
    Eliza Madrigal now resists singing age of aquarius....
    Yakuzza Lethecus: fearful and unhealty thoughts might make our aquarium mind pretty small
    Archmage Atlantis: The expansion, that is an expression of hope
    Eliza Madrigal: :)

    Snowballs, Marshmallows, Bears and Alligators

    Eliza Madrigal: somehow I think of hope like a snowball one pick up and works with... builds things out of...
    Eliza Madrigal: but lets go in its time
    Eliza Madrigal: *picks
    Eliza Madrigal: the outline of forms
    Yakuzza Lethecus: hehe, in my mind the snowball became as snowball fight of hope :)
    Eliza Madrigal: cute, ya
    Adams Rubble: :)
    Yakuzza Lethecus: but i see a snowballfight as something positive
    Yakuzza Lethecus: and fun to do, sharing hope for fun
    Eliza Madrigal: energetic....
    Bruce Mowbray: like a pillow fight -- or a marshmallow fight.
    Yakuzza Lethecus: right :)
    Yakuzza Lethecus: pillow fight is more secure tho :)
    Archmage Atlantis: Ok, opened the windows to see if there is any outside comment......but if the black bear or the panther eat my koi, well, let's just say the fight will be on
    Eliza Madrigal: if we're too careful not to disturb one another maybe nobody wakes up....
    Eliza Madrigal: so maybe not airhorns but snowballs or pillows in order.... hahha
    Eliza Madrigal: or marshmallows, but those are sticky and someone would have to clean up
    Adams Rubble: yum
    Eliza Madrigal: have you seen a black bear near home Arch?
    Archmage Atlantis: Sure, there is one who walks through the back yard regularly
    Eliza Madrigal: wow
    Archmage Atlantis: Better him than the aligators
    Adams Rubble: :)
    Eliza Madrigal: CHOMP
    Eliza Madrigal: we do feed marshmallows to alligators for some reason...
    Eliza Madrigal: all the kids' field trips
    Adams Rubble: :)
    Adams Rubble: the alligator dentosts will be busy
    Adams Rubble: dentists
    Eliza Madrigal giggles
    Yakuzza Lethecus: hehe :)
    Yakuzza Lethecus: that´s why
    Yakuzza Lethecus: giving em all bad teeth
    Archmage Atlantis: Alligators are no longer endangered, and to stay,, we humans need to keep them afraid of us
    Eliza Madrigal: ...feeding hope to alligators... hm....
    Archmage Atlantis: Otherwise they start to eat pets and children
    Archmage Atlantis: and old people
    Archmage Atlantis: nature is a balance
    Eliza Madrigal: I don't think alligators are afraid of us Arch... maybe of crocodiles....
    Bruce Mowbray thinks -- What a way to go!
    Eliza Madrigal: !!
    Adams Rubble thinks eating old people is going too far
    Eliza Madrigal: but pets are okay?
    Adams Rubble giggles
    Archmage Atlantis: Some socio-political groups find eating both ok

    Yakuzza Lethecus wonders if he should still wear the pab shirt
    Barcalona Rhapsody: ok i just took it from City-person in SL
    Barcalona Rhapsody: or so ?
    Archmage Atlantis: Odd comment......why not wear it Yaku?
    Barcalona Rhapsody: i could shoose from student- or designer or city or zo
    Bruce Mowbray thinks - It probably would not matter, Zaku, because all I've seen of you so far this session is a rather diffuse snowball. . .
    Yakuzza Lethecus: 2010 :)
    Bruce Mowbray: but perhaps others are able to see you more solid than I'm able to.
    Archmage Atlantis: History has meaning
    Yakuzza Lethecus: talking about new year again
