    Adams Rubble 's mouth waters
    Xirana Oximoxi: I don't know from where this tradition comes
    druth Vlodovic: the connection between chocolate and fertility is very mysterious
    Adams Rubble: we have chocolate easter eggs
    Hana Furlough: xirana, where do they make that cake?
    Xirana Oximoxi: ah! then it's more or less the same,:)
    Xirana Oximoxi: in Catalonia, Spain

    Adams Rubble: Hello Brian :)
    druth Vlodovic: oh, easter, spring, bunnies, red eggs etc
    Xirana Oximoxi: and chocolate is said to be afrodisiac (sometimes:) ...so, maybe there is the connexion with fertility :))

    Bruce Mowbray looks through the tall grass for a place to sit.
    iwandertoo Resident: waves

    Xirana Oximoxi: :)
    druth Vlodovic: I accidentally mentioned the "celebration of spring" thing to a christian frend, who insisted it is a celebration of christs resurrection, I honestly don't see why it has to be either or
    Hana Furlough: (yawn) must get to bed

    Xirana Oximoxi: Hi Arch
    druth Vlodovic: hey arch
    Brian Roop: hi arch
    Archmage Atlantis: Hello all :)
    Bruce Mowbray: Hey, Arch.
    Brian Roop: and the jews before the christians
    Brian Roop: well i guess they didn't exactly bapttize spring but you know what i mean
    Adams Rubble: It is a tme of renewal
    Brian Roop: for sure
    Archmage Atlantis: I promised myself to sit an be quiet this
    Brian Roop: we're having a perfect spring day here in maryland
    Xirana Oximoxi: yes! very important moment also in very ancient cultures
    Xirana Oximoxi: why Arch?
    SophiaSharon Larnia: back
    Bruce Mowbray: We Ohioans are sending lots of rain over toward Maryland. . .
    SophiaSharon Larnia: oh bruce thanks a lot :D
    Archmage Atlantis: AM, but plopping down in a discussion of springtime and religion is going to make it difficult
    Bruce Mowbray: '-)
    Brian Roop: hang onto it until tomorrow, will yuz
    Adams Rubble: Yeah like we need more rain
    SophiaSharon Larnia: :)
    Bruce Mowbray waits to hear Arch wax eloquently concerning spring and religion....
    SophiaSharon Larnia: started to wax and then deleted it lol
    Brian Roop: well does the fact that religions appropriate springtime for festivals of renewed life invalidate them?
    druth Vlodovic: the purpose of religion is to organize holidays, so no :)
    Bruce Mowbray: invalidate those religions, or those festivals, or springtime itself, Brian?
    SophiaSharon Larnia: i dont think so, humanity seems to value them
    Adams Rubble: I would think the purpose of religion is to help with life's transitions
    Brian Roop: don't know how one would invalidate springtime itself
    SophiaSharon Larnia: I dont know if some of it is a throw back to an agricultural society or divine
    Adams Rubble: each transiition is in a sense a renwal
    Archmage Atlantis: The only eloquent waxing today is going to be with furniture polish and a cleaning rag :)
    Brian Roop: heh
    SophiaSharon Larnia: hehe
    Adams Rubble: :) Arch
    Xirana Oximoxi: :))
    Brian Roop: why does it have to be either/or
    druth Vlodovic: ah, spring cleaning, everything fresh and new
    SophiaSharon Larnia looks at her messy house
    Brian Roop: spring is a miracle but it doesn't account for itself
    Bruce Mowbray looks at muddy yard.
    druth Vlodovic: the christian easter is about renewal and rebirth as well, so I never think to suspect people of being offended
    SophiaSharon Larnia: that too bruce
    druth Vlodovic: fresh, new mud!
    SophiaSharon Larnia: yes Druth re: renewal rebirth
    Brian Roop: of course it's easter in the southern hemispherre too
    Archmage Atlantis: Anyway, it is only spring in the Northern Hemisphere.......It's autumn south of the equator
    Bruce Mowbray thinks: Fresh new mud for the dog to bring inside on his feet!
    Brian Roop: wonder what they make of that, with winter coming on
    Adams Rubble: It is too bad someone got offended Druth
    Brian Roop: who got offended? about what?
    druth Vlodovic: not here, in IM
    Brian Roop: oh
    Bruce Mowbray: Blub is never offended -- only frightened.
    SophiaSharon Larnia: aww
    Brian Roop: aw, no one would harm him here
    Bruce Mowbray: but then Blub never receives IM's, come to think of it.
    Adams Rubble: :)
    Brian Roop: lacks the proper processor
    Archmage Atlantis: And Koya just watches to see if humanity will make it, or the other animals will have to start over *gg*
    SophiaSharon Larnia: :) arch
    Adams Rubble: :)
    Xirana Oximoxi: lol
    Brian Roop: does it make any difference other than to the humans, whether humanity makes it or not?
    Adams Rubble asks Koya how that is looking right now
    Archmage Atlantis: Koya keeps her own counsel, unlike her transport vehicle.
    SophiaSharon Larnia: part of humans making it, in my opinion, is living in the world without destroying it, so yes, i think that would be a concern to other crreatures
    SophiaSharon Larnia: if they think of such things :)
    Brian Roop: will the other creatures organize to keep us from doing in the world?
    druth Vlodovic: not respecting one's effect on the world is sort of self-correcting
    Brian Roop: how?
    iwandertoo Resident: nods
    iwandertoo Resident: nods, but thinks of the timeline...
    druth Vlodovic: "nature is fine the people are ___"
    Archmage Atlantis: ty druth....that was well said
    Brian Roop wonders about the school of guppies or something leaping like salmon in the fountain
    Archmage Atlantis: I always assumed they were sardines
    Brian Roop: oh sardines then
    Brian Roop: do sardines leap like salmon?
    Archmage Atlantis: Most schools of fish will leap to escape preditors
    SophiaSharon Larnia: (got caught up thinking og the timeline)
    Brian Roop: sharks in the pond, eh?
    Brian Roop: guys i have to go
    Adams Rubble: bye Brian :)
    Bruce Mowbray: Bye, Brian!
    iwandertoo Resident: waves
    Bruce Mowbray: Have a happy spring day!
    Archmage Atlantis: Bye, Brian
    SophiaSharon Larnia: bye Brian
    Xirana Oximoxi: be Brian

    Everyone sat in silence for the next 12 minutes. I was quietly appreciating the sun outside my window on this Easter morning and listening to some sacred music on YouTube. I began to have a  greater appreciation for the others sitting in silence, thinking of each of them sitting at their computer

    Bruce Mowbray: I'm going to scoot on over to the Village Hall now.
    Xirana Oximoxi: bye Bruce:)
