    The Guardian for this meeting was Eliza Madrigal. The comments (in progress, more later) are by Eliza Madrigal.

    Eliza Madrigal: Dreeeeaam, dream dream dream... Dreeeeaaam, dream dream dream...

    Eliza Madrigal: Hi Yakuzza, so nice to see youyaku_001.jpg
    Eliza Madrigal: Hm, are you wearing a mask?
    Yakuzza Lethecus: hey eliza
    Yakuzza Lethecus: ah, from this gadget :)
    Yakuzza Lethecus: japanet
    Eliza Madrigal: How interesting :))
    Yakuzza Lethecus: we did that last friday and a couple of times before
    Eliza Madrigal: Hi Pema and Xirana :)
    Pema Pera: hi Yaku, Eliza, Xirana!
    Yakuzza Lethecus: morning pema
    Pema Pera: you're so well dressed, Yaku -- too well dressed to sit down?

    Eliza Madrigal: It is Dream Circle this morning. I expect that Luci will join us soon :)
    Pema Pera: ah, now you're sitting down (in my viewer) :-)
    Pema Pera: oops !!!!
    Pema Pera: forgot all about it
    Yakuzza Lethecus: well, flying over my pillow :)
    Pema Pera: should be leaving soon then -- can't stay the whole hour . . .
    Pema Pera: sorry about that
    Eliza Madrigal: It has been evolving a bit, not quite as structured as we started off
    Eliza Madrigal: which seems to be working well :)
    Xirana Oximoxi: hello Eliza, Pema, Yaku:)
    Pema Pera: yes, but I hate to leave in the middle of somebody's dream :-)
    Pema Pera: will come back some other time -- how often are these?
    Pema Pera forgetful . . .
    Eliza Madrigal: Well, we've not begun...
    Pema Pera: it's not every week, is it?
    Eliza Madrigal: Only once a month
    Pema Pera: okay!
    Eliza Madrigal: but they aren't meant to scare people away!
    Eliza Madrigal: :))
    Yakuzza Lethecus: i am also usually not contributing too much
    Pema Pera: I'll try and bring a dream, next time, and prepare to stay till midnight (it's 11 pm now -- and I have to get up relatively early tomorrow)
    Xirana Oximoxi: I'm a listener too:)
    Yakuzza Lethecus: i hope that luci, eliza and 1-2 others actually share a dream :)
    Pema Pera: hahaha
    Eliza Madrigal: :) thanks Pema, that would be nice

    Pema Pera: you may have to dream it all up, Eliza!
    Pema Pera: from what I hear . . .
    Eliza Madrigal smiles
    Eliza Madrigal: dreeeam dream dream dream...
    Pema Pera: well, sweet dreams and dream stories!
    Pema Pera: see you all next time


    Eliza Madrigal: the butterflies fit the occasion, though I'm not sure if we will indeed do the circle today

    Eliza Madrigal: Night Pema
    Xirana Oximoxi: bye Pema.. sweet dreams too:)
    Yakuzza Lethecus: hey barca
    Eliza Madrigal: Hi Barcelona
    Barcalona Rhapsody: hi all
    Eliza Madrigal: It is always interesting when Pema changes time zones again... we seem to have unpredictable 'sightings' of him then
    Eliza Madrigal: haha
    Xirana Oximoxi: Hi Barcalona

    Eliza Madrigal: How is your jet-setting Yaku?
    Yakuzza Lethecus: hehe it´s all same timezone :)
    Barcalona Rhapsody: its 16:08 here
    Barcalona Rhapsody: afternoon
    Yakuzza Lethecus: just came home at 1:15 this morning
    Yakuzza Lethecus: had to be at work at 6 am
    Yakuzza Lethecus: 3 hrs sleep
    Eliza Madrigal: Oh :)
    Barcalona Rhapsody: oh
    Eliza Madrigal: the things we do for love
    Eliza Madrigal: like walking in the rain and the snow when there's nowhere to go... etc
    Barcalona Rhapsody: ok

    Eliza Madrigal: :) I seem to have a sountrack today
    Xirana Oximoxi: ahhh endich I see myself as something:)
    Yakuzza Lethecus: today it´s fortunatly raining a bit, it´s washing the pollen out of the air
    Yakuzza Lethecus: but we had great weather this weekend
    Barcalona Rhapsody: we too
    Barcalona Rhapsody: like summer
    Eliza Madrigal: very hot here, would love for it to rain and rain
    Yakuzza Lethecus: well, we´re fairly close to each other barca :)
    Barcalona Rhapsody: around 25 degrees C

    Eliza Madrigal: So shall we scratch the idea of dream circle and pull a topic out of the fountain?
    Barcalona Rhapsody: sure

    Yakuzza Lethecus: well a sunny day might trigger a natural state of appreciation
    Yakuzza Lethecus: why do sunny days might have this effect on us ?can we carry the sun within us ?

    Eliza Madrigal smiles
    Barcalona Rhapsody: because blue sky
    Barcalona Rhapsody: when the sky is blue i am always more happy
    Barcalona Rhapsody: than in a cloudy sky
    Barcalona Rhapsody: do u have that too ?
    Eliza Madrigal: Well...
    Barcalona Rhapsody: so maybe thats why i am happy here
    Barcalona Rhapsody: in SL
    Eliza Madrigal: I do think our weather and conditions affect our outlook
    Xirana Oximoxi: maybe because of light too:)
    Barcalona Rhapsody: sure
    Eliza Madrigal: perhaps suggesting different purposes or paces
    Barcalona Rhapsody: more light hours
    Xirana Oximoxi: yes, I agree
    Barcalona Rhapsody: so more solar energy
    Eliza Madrigal: we are intricately relating with everything around us all the time I think
    Eliza Madrigal: in ways we aren't aware of
    Eliza Madrigal: conversing
    Eliza Madrigal: :)
    Barcalona Rhapsody: i think so too

    Barcalona Rhapsody: there comes the sun
    Eliza Madrigal: and then there are the internal conditions... the internal weather

                      What timing...

    Barcalona Rhapsody: hi sun
    Xirana Oximoxi: hi Sun)
    Eliza Madrigal: Sunshine :)


    Yakuzza Lethecus: hi sunshine :)
    Sunshine Vayandar: hi Barca
    Sunshine Vayandar: Xiri ;)
    Sunshine Vayandar: and Lizzy
    Xirana Oximoxi: :)
    Barcalona Rhapsody: i love the sun
    Sunshine Vayandar: ahh and Yaku ( that didn't rhyme ;)
    Sunshine Vayandar: ;) butterflies

    Eliza Madrigal: This was to be a dream circle morning Sunshine, but hm... the day has other plans :)
    Eliza Madrigal: so we are following along
    Barcalona Rhapsody: sure
    Sunshine Vayandar: ahh really - so you have dream circles regularly?
    Barcalona Rhapsody: we bring in the sun
    Eliza Madrigal: yes, normally we have one once a month
    Barcalona Rhapsody: ah

    Barcalona Rhapsody: what happens on a dream circle ?
    Xirana Oximoxi: I think the calendar that druth has made will be very usefull:)
    Sunshine Vayandar: Xiri did u come right with everything?
    Eliza Madrigal: yes Xirana, so glad she did that :)
    Xirana Oximoxi: what do you mean Sun?
    Sunshine Vayandar: yes Druth is busy with it
    Sunshine Vayandar: the log on the wiki
    Sunshine Vayandar: I think someone added the title
    Xirana Oximoxi: with learning how the wiki works?
    Xirana Oximoxi: no, it was not me:)
    Xirana Oximoxi: I haven't 'studied' yet:)

    Eliza Madrigal: During a dream circle, we share a dream feeling, image, or story, one at a time, then look for overlaps and such... a larger picture often emerges
    Eliza Madrigal: @ Barca
    Barcalona Rhapsody: ok
    Barcalona Rhapsody: interesting
    Eliza Madrigal: It is a good practice toward releasing attachment to personal story lines
    Eliza Madrigal: what is more personal than a dream?
    Barcalona Rhapsody: sure

    Barcalona Rhapsody: i have a dream too
    Eliza Madrigal: Would you like to share?
    Eliza Madrigal: We don't have to be formal :)
    Barcalona Rhapsody: maybe
    Sunshine Vayandar: ;)
    Eliza Madrigal: especially on a day like today.... this setting is one for a picnic
    Barcalona Rhapsody: i wanna go to Milan expo 2015
    Barcalona Rhapsody: thats my dream
    Xirana Oximoxi: :)
    Eliza Madrigal: Ah, that sort of dream :)
    Eliza Madrigal: Nice :))
    Barcalona Rhapsody: and i was free this week

    Lucinda Lavender: Sos sorry to be late.
    Alfred Kelberry: luci :)
    Sunshine Vayandar: hi Luci ;)
    Lucinda Lavender: no alram set last night:)

    Eliza Madrigal: We've decided to scratch dream circle this morning, and go with the flow :) We ARE sharing dreams though.... more in the spirit of futures and potentialities
    Barcalona Rhapsody: time doesnt matter
    Xirana Oximoxi: hi Luci:)
    Lucinda Lavender: :)
    Alfred Kelberry: oh, it's the dream today?
    Lucinda Lavender: now I was able to get on with Phoenix..

    Eliza Madrigal: The day has other plans, other dreams
    Eliza Madrigal: :)

    Lucinda Lavender: but I do not have settings correct in it
    Alfred Kelberry: :)
    Alfred Kelberry: wuff!
    Eliza Madrigal: I bought a wonderful dance a few days ago, but I do not know how to share it with everyone like Wol did

    Alfred Kelberry: oh yes! the sun's masterpiece :)
    Lucinda Lavender: so it may be a little harder
    Eliza Madrigal: :))) @ the wonderful manga
    Alfred Kelberry: manga for pablings
    Sunshine Vayandar: ;p)
    Sunshine Vayandar: ah I can see it now
    Alfred Kelberry: you should print a book, sun :)
    Sunshine Vayandar: pls take a copy if you don't have it
    Eliza Madrigal: I can see clearly now la la la la
    Sunshine Vayandar: I think you can buy for 0L
    Xirana Oximoxi: it's a wonderful souvenir:)
    Sunshine Vayandar: any suggestions are welcome
    Eliza Madrigal: Thank you so much Sun
    Alfred Kelberry: or you can buy for 1L :)
    Xirana Oximoxi: yes! thank you Sun! :)
    Sunshine Vayandar: ty all it's a group effort
    Barcalona Rhapsody: nice
    Barcalona Rhapsody: result
    Sunshine Vayandar: I used Eliza's log to quote everyone
    Xirana Oximoxi: nice :)

    Eliza Madrigal: How did the idea come, Sun?
    Sunshine Vayandar: hmm Adams gave me this task - to document the party events
    Sunshine Vayandar: or in fact I told him I will do it
    Alfred Kelberry: :)
    Sunshine Vayandar: but had no idea what would be the best way
    Sunshine Vayandar: and when I read Eliza's log - I thought it was perfect ;)
    Xirana Oximoxi: :)
    Sunshine Vayandar: it had so many nice pictures
    Sunshine Vayandar: Eliza but quite an effort into that log
    Eliza Madrigal: Ah, not really, but thank you :)
    Sunshine Vayandar: and then I thougt I had to come up with something new
    Eliza Madrigal: Effort is a funny thing...
    Eliza Madrigal: when it is fun, not much that can be called effort!


    Sunshine Vayandar: ok then no effort ;))
    Eliza Madrigal: heh
    Sunshine Vayandar: so as I was sitting and reading Eliza's log - I thought - it was perfect for a comic book
    Barcalona Rhapsody: how many years is Pab now ?
    Sunshine Vayandar: 3
    Barcalona Rhapsody: so this is very actual
    Eliza Madrigal: this book really hit me out of 'left field' as they say.... gave a new dimension to many things...
    Barcalona Rhapsody: i can imagine
    Eliza Madrigal: putting us in a context of story book charactres
    Sunshine Vayandar: I loved how Bleu give a new dimension to PaB
    Eliza Madrigal: which seems so fitting, and yet... the story is so lovely and sweet
    Eliza Madrigal: yes, exactly... room for so many angles and approaches
    Eliza Madrigal: like a diamond

    Sunshine Vayandar: and it's funny how one can make the tea and beer talk also ;)
    Eliza Madrigal: that tea service, in the hut, is 'the host' of the place
    Sunshine Vayandar: since in SL beverages can talk
    Sunshine Vayandar: ;p
    Eliza Madrigal: so polite the way it talks to everyone...
    Sunshine Vayandar: yes ;)
    Lucinda Lavender: :)
    Barcalona Rhapsody: yes
    Eliza Madrigal: "Doesn't this make you feel at one with nature?" hehe
    Barcalona Rhapsody: thats the positive thing here
    Sunshine Vayandar: I got one for myself too
    Eliza Madrigal: yes Barcalona
    Sunshine Vayandar: yes Liz ;))
    Eliza Madrigal: Sun, did you find one?? I've looked around a lot for that
    Lucinda Lavender: getting coffee...
    Sunshine Vayandar: yes I found
    Lucinda Lavender: maybe I can figure out more:)
    Sunshine Vayandar: on the marketplace

    Eliza Madrigal: So, what about in "RL"... do we converse with things as we do in SL and in dreams?
    Sunshine Vayandar: will get the link
    Eliza Madrigal: thanks so much :)))
    druth Vlodovic: in RL it's considered a bad sign when they talk back
    Eliza Madrigal: hehe

    druth Vlodovic: but you should hear the things I say to my machines at work
    Eliza Madrigal: what if it is continuous and invisible?
    druth Vlodovic: and they do talk back :(

    Barcalona Rhapsody: and yaku you was also one of the first founding fathers ?
    Eliza Madrigal: I used to manage a little store, and hahha... I would talk to some items that wouldnt sell sometimes....
    Lucinda Lavender: :)
    Xirana Oximoxi: I don't converse with things:)... but one day we've been talking about hearing the nature, trees, flowers, talk... so if they can talk to us, maybe we must give an answer:)
    Lucinda Lavender: that is very sweet!
    Sunshine Vayandar: ;) Eliza
    Eliza Madrigal: yes Xirana, yes this is what I'm thinking about.... layers of listening
    druth Vlodovic: the nicer you talk to things the better they treat you
    Eliza Madrigal: :))))
    Eliza Madrigal: manners count!
    Yakuzza Lethecus: i came to pab 2 years ago

    Sunshine Vayandar: ;) I saw this on mythbusters ;)
    Sunshine Vayandar: they were talking to plants
    Barcalona Rhapsody: me 1,5 year or so
    Sunshine Vayandar: and wanted to find out - if it helps when they are nicer to plants ...
    Lucinda Lavender: what was the conclusion sun?
    Sunshine Vayandar: that Beethoven is nice for plants
    Sunshine Vayandar: i think ;))
    Yakuzza Lethecus: i wasn´t even ,,born" when pab started but found it within my first 2 month
    Lucinda Lavender: :)
    Xirana Oximoxi: :)
    Eliza Madrigal: My son had this as his science fair project this year actually :)
    Barcalona Rhapsody: so you grow up with pab
    Eliza Madrigal: We played Bach, mostly
    Barcalona Rhapsody: i found pab in my former life
    Lucinda Lavender: what did he find...?
    Barcalona Rhapsody: as adoro
    Sunshine Vayandar: nice name Barca
    Barcalona Rhapsody: its my second life in sl
    Eliza Madrigal: Well, to be honest... the plant near music did better BUT the factors were incalculable
    Xirana Oximoxi: wave:)
    Barcalona Rhapsody: ah
    Barcalona Rhapsody: i like harp
    Barcalona Rhapsody: music
    Eliza Madrigal: so no conclusion
    Sunshine Vayandar: ;)
    Lucinda Lavender: nodding
    Eliza Madrigal: :)
    Alfred Kelberry: mmm

    Sunshine Vayandar: soon it's music time ....

    Eliza Madrigal: It seems what we are discussing is "appreciate the presence of apearance as a presentation by/of Being"... naturally flowing into that, now to lovely harp music....
    Barcalona Rhapsody: ah i hear the harp and the krekls
    Eliza Madrigal: mmmmmmmmmmmmm
    Alfred Kelberry: *hears angelic voices*
    Barcalona Rhapsody: mmm
    Sunshine Vayandar: ;)
    Xirana Oximoxi: :))
    Barcalona Rhapsody: oh
    Alfred Kelberry: must be sun humming :)
    Sunshine Vayandar: hmm normally it should be zen
    Sunshine Vayandar: ;)
    Barcalona Rhapsody: my dreasm comes true
    Eliza Madrigal: :)
    Alfred Kelberry: not that angelic :)
    Yakuzza Lethecus: sun´s harp is always a bit interrupted for me :(
    Alfred Kelberry: :/
    Sunshine Vayandar: yes for me too but may be it needs to load
    Alfred Kelberry: a little maybe
    Eliza Madrigal: at tiimes it takes a while for the SL instruments to flow without interruption
    Xirana Oximoxi: for me too... but anyway it's wonderful:)

    Sunshine Vayandar: it would be nice to sit here in RL ... with you guys and I would play the harp
    Sunshine Vayandar: hmm ;)
    Lucinda Lavender: yes interrupted for me too
    Barcalona Rhapsody: hmm

    Xirana Oximoxi: we are in rl hearing you Sun ;)

    Alfred Kelberry: and violin
    Barcalona Rhapsody: my ears are real
    Sunshine Vayandar: ;)
    Sunshine Vayandar: it's good to have ears ;)
    Xirana Oximoxi: lol
    Eliza Madrigal: :)

    Alfred Kelberry: i'd be a bit freaked out by the amount of butterflies though :)
    Sunshine Vayandar: ahh may be
    Eliza Madrigal: yes, the butterflies need a volume button
    Eliza Madrigal: hehe
    Alfred Kelberry: hehe
    Sunshine Vayandar: I just figured out how to stream in SL
    Barcalona Rhapsody: so u download and we all can hear the music ?
    Sunshine Vayandar: but it also jumps around and stops
    Alfred Kelberry: volume button... such a nice concept


    Alfred Kelberry: may often be handy
    Sunshine Vayandar: no this is just an SL harp coming from SL
    Barcalona Rhapsody: ok
    Eliza Madrigal: dreams are like that too (re interruptions)... all sorts of websites devoted to how to sustain attention in a dream, etc., like we were discussing 'licking things' the other day in dream workshop (well I was, on a tangent, giggle)
    Alfred Kelberry: i'd like to volume up birds in the city and volume down the cars
    Eliza Madrigal: :) Alfred
    Lucinda Lavender: :)
    Sunshine Vayandar: hehe
    Eliza Madrigal: Hey, great song title "Volume Up the Love"
    Xirana Oximoxi: :)
    Eliza Madrigal: could be a Marley...haha

    Sunshine Vayandar: I just saw Mr Bean that was conducting an orchestra and he could volume them up and down ;)
    druth Vlodovic: cars that sound like birds
    Yakuzza Lethecus: your microphone is open druth
    Sunshine Vayandar: hehe Eliza
    Eliza Madrigal: even better, Druth! :))
    druth Vlodovic: ty
    Eliza Madrigal: how do I copy a dance to be able to share?

    Sunshine Vayandar: I still can't really see how I could control myself in my dreams
    Xirana Oximoxi: is it possible to control the dreams?
    Eliza Madrigal: I think it sort of the opposite of control.. more like deeper and deeper listening..

    Barcalona Rhapsody: well this session looks like a dream to me
    druth Vlodovic: yes :(
    Eliza Madrigal: What do you think Luci? Or Zen's wonderful phrase, deeper awake in the dream
    Xirana Oximoxi: yes! it's like a buterfly springly dream:)
    druth Vlodovic: it's hard to let go of control once established, then your dreams start hiding from you

    Alfred Kelberry: i'd like to program my dreams
    Eliza Madrigal smiles at hidden dreams
    Sunshine Vayandar: yes I thought the same - it's like a dream

    Eliza Madrigal: Instead of dream circle we've walked into a dream together
    Barcalona Rhapsody: so a dream ex machina

    Xirana Oximoxi: oh! really? ..then better not to learn how to control them, isn't it?
    Barcalona Rhapsody: or dream as a service

    Lucinda Lavender: I have the thought that the more one is aware in the dream the sense of being in a flow arises
    Barcalona Rhapsody: dream in the cloud
    Lucinda Lavender: and the control attempts are really not a goal of mine at all
    Eliza Madrigal: mmmm
    Sunshine Vayandar: mmm ;)
    Barcalona Rhapsody: i just enjoy it
    Lucinda Lavender: luciity in dreaming is perhaps an early stage of dream awareness
    Eliza Madrigal: yes see the more Sun just stays playing, the clearer the music becomes

    Alfred Kelberry: i think it's important to learn how to control them. this is the key to the future dream-like interfaces to virtual worlds :)

    Xirana Oximoxi: do you remember very often your dreams Luci or others?
    Barcalona Rhapsody: never
    Sunshine Vayandar: yes Eliza it's better now - the music

    druth Vlodovic: it's only my opinion, of course, I've recently decided to start writing down dreams, which is odd when you "don't have them" but they don't hide so well, once you start showing an interest
    Alfred Kelberry: xir, rarely
    Barcalona Rhapsody: i see
    Eliza Madrigal: :) they appreciate manners too I guess Druth!
    Xirana Oximoxi: mee either... just some images
    Lucinda Lavender: In dreaming as a younger person there were more...but now perhaps several a month
    druth Vlodovic: it's going to be a challenge to just let them happen, I've had one since I started "writing them down" (lots of, "nothing yet" lol)
    Barcalona Rhapsody: you can active listen to your dreams
    Lucinda Lavender: sometimes just a few images wake me up
    Alfred Kelberry: yea, i had much more vivid and eventful dreams as a kid
    Xirana Oximoxi: :)) druth
    Alfred Kelberry: like we all, i think
    Eliza Madrigal: I remember few dreams as a child... actually not too many memories
    Alfred Kelberry: oh
    Alfred Kelberry: ok, my theory breaks :)
    Lucinda Lavender: feels like a slow waking process is the most helpful

    druth Vlodovic: I figure it's like bird watching, if you net them and try to make them sing it's ot the same experience as just letting them be birds

    Eliza Madrigal: just particular spots that seem brighter/more vivid than others..
    Eliza Madrigal: not necessarily Boxy
    Lucinda Lavender: I don't have as many memories either
    Lucinda Lavender: as most people seem to
    Alfred Kelberry: eliza, ah, you're just a wonderful exception :)
    Eliza Madrigal: hmmm
    Lucinda Lavender: nicely put druth

    moon luci_008.jpg

    Eliza Madrigal: What about daydream quality?
    Barcalona Rhapsody: this mst be a computer aided daydream
    Xirana Oximoxi: sl is like a daydream:)
    Barcalona Rhapsody: feeling like in heaven
    Eliza Madrigal: a collective one :) yes
    Barcalona Rhapsody: in second heaven
    Eliza Madrigal: or consciously collective?

    druth Vlodovic: I wonder if all this meditating is just trying to return to a mental state where we could dream
    Eliza Madrigal: hmmmmmmmmmm
    Alfred Kelberry: barca :)
    Barcalona Rhapsody: hmmm
    druth Vlodovic: too many opinions, too much control, "too much noise" shuts them down
    Lucinda Lavender: I don't really do that much either...but find that sometimes when I feel slower, more gratitude, then a feeling of being in dream sort of comes up

    Barcalona Rhapsody: a slow motion dream ?
    Eliza Madrigal: what an interesting idea, yes relaxing our monkey minds enough to allow a less interrupted flow
    Alfred Kelberry: druth, to me it's quite otherwise - how to be in harmony with reality
    Lucinda Lavender: seeing what is...
    Barcalona Rhapsody: when u go slow u make another reality
    Eliza Madrigal smiles
    Lucinda Lavender: I think it may be so Barca

    druth Vlodovic: sombody was positing that we always dream, even when awake, so our reality includes dreams, since they are part of us, continuously

    Barcalona Rhapsody: u make a more royal reality
    Alfred Kelberry: if your reality is peaceful then your dreams are happy too :)
    Lucinda Lavender: I have been thinking about that very same idea druth
    Eliza Madrigal: yes yes Oh :))
    Lucinda Lavender: since reading it
    Sunshine Vayandar: ;)
    druth Vlodovic: :)
    Sunshine Vayandar: life is interesting hmm ;)
    Alfred Kelberry: odd
    Alfred Kelberry: why would we dream while awake?
    druth Vlodovic: odd?
    Lucinda Lavender: so it feels like the "Always Dream" may be a quiet resonance like a drone that plays on...
    Barcalona Rhapsody: to dream away for reality ?
    Alfred Kelberry: huh?
    druth Vlodovic: in the background, when we get bored enough to stop looking around we "daydream"
    Barcalona Rhapsody: yes


    Alfred Kelberry: um, yea
    Lucinda Lavender: luci feels it like it was in the center of her being
    Barcalona Rhapsody: me too
    Barcalona Rhapsody: so we are both feeling centers
    Eliza Madrigal: for me I see both dream thoughts/waking thoughts as showing a difference in loopiness or interruption... so there is a 'default' kind of dream or thinking that we lapse into, (but) then there is a more creative/spontaneous/flow which often unhides when we slow down the loopy default.....
    Eliza Madrigal: or 'make friends with it'
    Eliza Madrigal: so it relaxes a bit :)

    Barcalona Rhapsody: well i have to leave again
    Barcalona Rhapsody: it was a pleasure
    Sunshine Vayandar: take care Barca ;)
    Barcalona Rhapsody: bye all
    Yakuzza Lethecus: nice to see you again barca
    Sunshine Vayandar: nice to see you
    Eliza Madrigal: Thanks for your contributions today Barca
    Barcalona Rhapsody: and thnx sun for the music !!!
    Sunshine Vayandar: yw ;)
    Lucinda Lavender: yes nice to see you Barca
    Eliza Madrigal would like to dance
    Sunshine Vayandar: ;))
    druth Vlodovic: I'm off as well, have fun everyone
    druth Vlodovic: sweet dreams :)
    Sunshine Vayandar: take care Druth ;)
    Yakuzza Lethecus: bye druth
    Eliza Madrigal: Thank you Druth, so nice to see you
    Sunshine Vayandar: see u soon
    Eliza Madrigal: :) Were you here when we praised the calendar?
    Eliza Madrigal: Thanks for that too! :D

                   I begin to dance, with a glowing sun above me...              

    Sunshine Vayandar: Liz is that a copy dance?
    Eliza Madrigal: that's why I was asking earlier..not sure how to copy
    Lucinda Lavender: bye druth :)
    Eliza Madrigal: I have a few nice ones
    Sunshine Vayandar: do u see next to it - copy transfer?
    Eliza Madrigal: which I paid more for so they could copy
    Sunshine Vayandar: ;)
    Eliza Madrigal: but don't know how :)
    Sunshine Vayandar: try to drop it on me
    Sunshine Vayandar: if it can't - it will say
    Eliza Madrigal: I try to give it but it has the 'no' symbol
    Sunshine Vayandar: kk
    Eliza Madrigal: it says 'crane falls copy'
    Sunshine Vayandar: crane falls ;)
    Eliza Madrigal: :) yes, so I think there is a way to make it copy
    Sunshine Vayandar: do u have the LM for it
    Sunshine Vayandar: I'd love to get some like that
    Eliza Madrigal: not sure how Wol managed to make it head-clickable
    Eliza Madrigal: yes it is a place called SInewave
    Eliza Madrigal: in the "Chinese" section
    Sunshine Vayandar: she put it in a chimera I think
    Sunshine Vayandar: ahh that one
    Sunshine Vayandar: ahh ;))
    Lucinda Lavender: nice:)
    Sunshine Vayandar: yes ;)
    Sunshine Vayandar: wanna try to learn how to do that Liz
    Eliza Madrigal: how would I change the permissions inside?
    Sunshine Vayandar: to make it clickable
    Sunshine Vayandar: hmm you can't really change permission
    Sunshine Vayandar: if it says copy - probably it's no trans
    Eliza Madrigal: so why did I pay more?
    Sunshine Vayandar: to be able to give it to someone
    Eliza Madrigal: there were two options
    Sunshine Vayandar: it has to be copy + trans
    Eliza Madrigal: :(
    Sunshine Vayandar: yes usually you can choose
    Sunshine Vayandar: to be able give it to your friends it has to be copy + trans ... not only copy

    Eliza Madrigal: I bought them that way for everyone, so what was the benefit of paying twice as much....
    Eliza Madrigal: wondering
    Sunshine Vayandar: because you can use it now in different dance balls
    Eliza Madrigal: ah, so I can make a dance ball?
    Sunshine Vayandar: or huds
    Sunshine Vayandar: yes
    Eliza Madrigal: and put it there? and then others can share?
    Sunshine Vayandar: we can click your head ;)
    Eliza Madrigal: :))

    Eliza Madrigal: I love how the sun is dancing with me now
    Sunshine Vayandar: am I?
    Eliza Madrigal: look above my head
    Sunshine Vayandar: lol
    Eliza Madrigal: :)
    Sunshine Vayandar: yes yes ;))
    Sunshine Vayandar: yes it works well ;)

                 Deeper into the dream session dream, we find the moon. Luci recites so sweetly, a few songs and poems and facts ...

    Eliza Madrigal: Have you ever heard the poem... "I see the moon and the moon sees me /I love the moon and the moon loves me?"
    Sunshine Vayandar: ;)) no
    Sunshine Vayandar: how does it go
    Lucinda Lavender: Yes...infact I am currently practicing it in a cantata for the Moon!
    Eliza Madrigal: :))))

    Lucinda Lavender: :)
    Sunshine Vayandar: what is meme?
    Lucinda Lavender: I learned so much about the moon through the cantata
    Eliza Madrigal: there was a slivered window in my room growing up and you could see the moon perfectly through it
    Lucinda Lavender: ...it is shaped like an egg!
    Sunshine Vayandar: how you play it Luci
    Eliza Madrigal: My "meme" is short for "Memere" and it is what I called my great grandmother

    your children's eyes
    The african river water
    will dance and leap
    in your morning light

    African sunshine
    African river water,
    will you bless my life?
    Oh will you bless my life?

    your soldiers march
    through the air

    The african rain will fall
    and wash away all my tears
    African falling rain
    African falling rain,
    will you bless my life?
