    Archmage Atlantis: namaste, Calvino
    Calvino Rabeni: _/!\_
    Calvino Rabeni: Archmage
    Archmage Atlantis: I was watching 2012, the movie
    Calvino Rabeni: Is that a disaster movie?
    Archmage Atlantis: Not in tune with the Mayan prophecy
    Archmage Atlantis: Yes, it is
    Calvino Rabeni: People must be desperate for change
    Archmage Atlantis: Yes, I would normally say something that is agreeable, but at this point in time (whatever time is) I agree
    Archmage Atlantis: Probably has to do with ageing
    Archmage Atlantis: I know that humans have believed that there will be another change
    Archmage Atlantis: LIke the burning bush
    Archmage Atlantis: Or the flood
    Calvino Rabeni: what did the bush do?
    Archmage Atlantis: You are familiar with Jewish, Muslim and Christian fables?.......Moses went into the desert and the lord god appeared in a burning bush
    Archmage Atlantis: That bush
    Archmage Atlantis: not the ones who were presidents
    Calvino Rabeni: Hi, Cinda :)
    Calvino Rabeni: What do you think the dream of the burning bush is about?
    Archmage Atlantis: Hello sister Luci
    Lucinda Lavender: Hi Cal Arch...
    Archmage Atlantis: It, to me, is about seeing beyond what is now

    Lucinda Lavender: Not sure...have not studied the bible but just thinking about the plant being that is a transforming thing...and perhaps able to send out seeds though the transformation.
    Lucinda Lavender: what do you think Cal?
    Lucinda Lavender: odd! in my new appearance the eyelashes are very big and black!
    Archmage Atlantis: Luci, I only see you in my mind......
    Lucinda Lavender: well perhaps that is a more accurate apparance
    Archmage Atlantis: prthaps
    Lucinda Lavender: I went shopping with Paradise:)
    Lucinda Lavender: She very generously got me ready for celebrations...
    Archmage Atlantis: Nice slave or warrier look Cal.....quite hot
    Archmage Atlantis: Oops
    Calvino Rabeni: why thank you Archmage
    Archmage Atlantis: Because you are a woman, Rhi.....
    Lucinda Lavender: hi Rhi:)
    Archmage Atlantis: Nope, just differently oriented
    Archmage Atlantis: And, Hi, Rhi....you tart you
    Calvino Rabeni: DO you need a teleport Rhia
    Archmage Atlantis: Dang unsighted peeps
    Rhiannon Dragoone: I am on my full viewer, but bandwidth challenged
    Archmage Atlantis: *g*
    Rhiannon Dragoone: you make a nice tiger, Arch
    Archmage Atlantis: ty, it is part of my true selves
    Rhiannon Dragoone: yeah, the best avatars are
    Archmage Atlantis: Nim and Koya are speaking tho,,,,,,,even as a cat, I can't always interpret their chatter
    Archmage Atlantis: And Chester will be here next Sunday
    Rhiannon Dragoone: yay, Cal is rezzing.
    Rhiannon Dragoone: Still don't see Lucinda
    Archmage Atlantis: I see Luci
    Archmage Atlantis: she is important to me
    Calvino Rabeni: All I see is your feet and hair, Rhia
    Rhiannon Dragoone: Arch, how nice for you
    Lucinda Lavender: :)
    Rhiannon Dragoone: Well, do you see me, Arch? Or am I not important to you. lol
    Rhiannon Dragoone: Well, I do have nice hair and feet, Cal, so enjoy
    Archmage Atlantis: Rhi, I see the avatar you use, and I see the soul behind it
    Archmage Atlantis: It is why is see you all
    Rhiannon Dragoone: heh. I guess this means this is the first time I'm here modestly. Should hve been this way the other night for Gaya.
    Rhiannon Dragoone: awww; that is sweet, Arcch
    Lucinda Lavender: I see everyone...
    Rhiannon Dragoone: well, Luc just dropped from the sky and is a cloud
    Archmage Atlantis: I believe you do, Luci
    Rhiannon Dragoone: So soonh...
    Rhiannon Dragoone: Arch is tboned still

    What to do with a general climate of fatigue?  We're not on payroll, this ain't no seminar, so why not treat the organism kindly, as in a daycare center for adults, with story time and a nap...

    Lucinda Lavender: hmmm a story for Cal...wish I had one...am very tired this eve
    Rhiannon Dragoone: Your hair and skirt are rezzed now, Luc.
    Lucinda Lavender: ah! cool
    Calvino Rabeni: we could skip the story and get right to the nap
    Lucinda Lavender: :) great Idea
    Archmage Atlantis: The dreams will come (ty sspear)
    Rhiannon Dragoone: hmmm. And I need to make dinner soon
    Lucinda Lavender: let's try napping while sitting
    Calvino Rabeni: sounds good maybe we'll harvest some fresh dreams
    Archmage Atlantis: Time to say nitey nite
    Lucinda Lavender: nitely nite Arch:)
    Calvino Rabeni: Sleep well Archmage
    Lucinda Lavender: may it be a nice one for you
    Rhiannon Dragoone: nite, Arch
    Rhiannon Dragoone: well, my dog is barking to get in, and I promised Rosalyn I'd make dinner; so I will be going soon
    Calvino Rabeni: Bon appetit
    Lucinda Lavender: may you have a nice dinner Rhi...what might it be?
    Rhiannon Dragoone: that's what i have to figure out; probably macaroni, cheese, and hotdogs, followed by a fruit salad. Oh, and peas and carrots in the macaroni and cheese
    Lucinda Lavender: yum:)
    Calvino Rabeni: sounds like a picnic meal
    Lucinda Lavender: yup
    Calvino Rabeni: what kind of wine goes with hotdogs?
    Lucinda Lavender: hmmmnot sure
    Lucinda Lavender: maybe a beer
    Lucinda Lavender: or lemonade...or both together
    Rhiannon Dragoone: Cal, well, we just drink water or orange juice
    Rhiannon Dragoone: But it would be the same as with steak, I should think

    Moses' dream may have been voiced by a burning bush but this one is timed by a not-to-be-burned gift pie steaming in the oven while the previous year's plum harvest slowly ferments and ripens a second time.

    Lucinda Lavender: I am waiting as a rhubarb apple pie bakes...
    Calvino Rabeni: How's the plum wine aging?
    Lucinda Lavender: just fine I think...
    Rhiannon Dragoone: Bye all!
    Calvino Rabeni: Bye, enjoy
    Lucinda Lavender: by Rhi:)
    Lucinda Lavender:  speaking of dreaming...do you ever find that as you sleep there are the sound of perople talking to each other as if in conversation...in your consciousness?
    Lucinda Lavender: I noticed that this happens alot to me...like I am listening to a radio or something...dialogue is in there
    Calvino Rabeni: Do you retain the knowledge of these internal dialogues?
    Lucinda Lavender: I don't usually really process what it is tho...
    Lucinda Lavender: not but a little part
    Lucinda Lavender: where I am becoming aware of it
    Lucinda Lavender: when I was on the airplane actually sleeping I noticed it
    Calvino Rabeni: I think the noise helps a lot
    Lucinda Lavender: it did not appear to be anyone I could hear for real tho
    Lucinda Lavender: airplane noise?
    Calvino Rabeni: Yes
    Lucinda Lavender: ah...interesting
    Calvino Rabeni: a running faucet might also help
    Lucinda Lavender: some kind of ambient noise canceling out ?
    Calvino Rabeni: or if one took a whistling tea kettle set on very low heat, so it just went oooohh instead of whistling
    Lucinda Lavender: yeah!
    Calvino Rabeni: The ambient noise would be like the way that faces and shapes appear in clouds or wood grain such as plywood
    Lucinda Lavender: I think it does have something to do with the ability of going to some other level or channel
    Calvino Rabeni: 2 b || ! 2 b - To sleep: perchance to dream: ay, there's the rub; For in that sleep of death what dreams may come
    Lucinda Lavender: must go check pie...brb
    Lucinda Lavender: looking good
    Calvino Rabeni: special holiday pie?
    Calvino Rabeni: gift pie?
    Lucinda Lavender: using up my daughters freezer
    Lucinda Lavender: yes tomorrow night will take it to a couples house who has been very gracious and helpful to us
    Lucinda Lavender: will help us do the move
    Lucinda Lavender: graduation pie:)
    Calvino Rabeni: that is very civil
    Lucinda Lavender: yes!!!
    Calvino Rabeni: you're away from home?
    Lucinda Lavender: Deleware
    Lucinda Lavender: then off to NYC
    Lucinda Lavender: on Wed

    Calvino Rabeni: Perhaps you'll have time for some sight seeing?
    Calvino Rabeni: I'm doing a masonry project ... it's exciting to create a mould and then pour in something that hardens like stone and lasts a long time
    Lucinda Lavender: nice!
    Calvino Rabeni: DC has great low cost or free museums
    Lucinda Lavender: I won't be going there this trip tho...some day I hope
    Lucinda Lavender: well better check the pie again!
    Calvino Rabeni: I saw a play - The Language Archive - lots of commentary on the subjective effects of language
    Lucinda Lavender: really! sounds interesting
    Lucinda Lavender: tell me more while I brb
    Calvino Rabeni: it seemed creative
    Calvino Rabeni: sometimes the characters would freeze, except for one, who would talk to the audience as if it were the listener for the internal dialogue
    Lucinda Lavender: ah...
    Lucinda Lavender: interesting to hear what goes on inside people's heads
    Calvino Rabeni: and the lights would go dark, except one spot, where it would be a little floating sub-world
    Lucinda Lavender: nodding:)
    Lucinda Lavender: very dreamy
    Calvino Rabeni: yes dreamy, like seeing the dream behind the words
    Calvino Rabeni: And there would be stops in the conversation, where one character would walk here and there doing a dialogue with the audience while the other speakers were suspended
    Lucinda Lavender: were there any certain ones you related to?
    Calvino Rabeni: Not really, but it did point out some cultural attitudes that are part of language use.
    Lucinda Lavender: nodding
    Calvino Rabeni: Like "Everyone knows, when you say something in English, you don't really mean it" (spoken by someone who learned English as a second language)

    The earnest Linguist asks the last native speakers of a soon-to-be-extinct language: "Are there some words in your tongue that have no English equivalent?" / "Why yes, of course!" / "Oh, which are they?" / "Well, all of them!"

    Lucinda Lavender: hmm why is that?
    Lucinda Lavender: because the words do not appear to apply?
    Calvino Rabeni: perhaps because it is the language of commerce and politics?
    Lucinda Lavender: ah...
    Lucinda Lavender: making the world develop...
    Lucinda Lavender: the new world language
    Calvino Rabeni: Yes, focusing on the To Be rather than the Is
    Lucinda Lavender: saw at Winterthur a rebus picture of the us speaking to England and England speaking to the us
    Lucinda Lavender: too small to acutally read for me
    Calvino Rabeni: antique?
    Lucinda Lavender: yes
    Lucinda Lavender: must check the pie again:)
    Calvino Rabeni: I've only once seen history portrayed as a musical

    Calvino Rabeni: with the delegates from the Constitutional Convention getting up on the table to sing and dance to make a point more dramatically.
    Lucinda Lavender: which?
    Calvino Rabeni: 1776
    Lucinda Lavender: ah ha ha ha
    Calvino Rabeni: I will take leave of you while you check the pie. Enjoy the rest of your visit and travels, Cinda
    Lucinda Lavender: thanks sweet dreams for you too:)
    Calvino Rabeni: Thanks :)
