    Paradise Tennant: but was nice when it was over .. and home with pup :)
    stevenaia Michinaga: awww
    stevenaia Michinaga: days like that are rare for me, usually the worst is when nothing happens or there is nothing to do

    Paradise Tennant: we always did that new year’s day family ritual
    Paradise Tennant: yes
    Paradise Tennant: it goes by in a blink
    Paradise Tennant: actually really liked the winter when I was skiing lots .. would fly by .. if you are not out playing in the snow .. kind of slow :)
    stevenaia Michinaga: assuming there is snow to play in
    stevenaia Michinaga: but you have memories to play in
    Ewan Bonham: yes, I did when I was a kid...and loved it...
    stevenaia Michinaga: Paradise went poof
    Ewan Bonham: oops wonder if I said anything..
    stevenaia Michinaga: can your words crash a computer?
    Paradise Tennant: so sorry my sl is odd tonight
    Ewan Bonham: Some say yes..
    Paradise Tennant: smiles
    stevenaia Michinaga: that's an amazing skin Ewan
    Paradise Tennant: have a friend whose body chemistry seems to break watches :)
    Ewan Bonham: thank you, Steve
    stevenaia Michinaga: Hi Luci
    Ewan Bonham: Hi Luci..
    Paradise Tennant: hiya luci
    Paradise Tennant: so nice to see you :)
    Lucinda Lavender: so nice to see you all also:)
    stevenaia Michinaga: nice dress Luci
    Paradise Tennant: love the scarf too :)
    Paradise Tennant: shall we talk of dreams ?
    Lucinda Lavender: thanks:) scarf for cooler weather:)
    Lucinda Lavender: would love to hear of them...
    Lucinda Lavender: Luci has not remembered on for oh so long
    Paradise Tennant: smiles
    stevenaia Michinaga: I had a strange dog dream, I never remember dreaming about a dog
    Paradise Tennant: listens
    Lucinda Lavender: listening too
    stevenaia Michinaga: just remember a fragment, I suspect it relates to recent story about a Presidential candidate driving somewhere with dog caged on his car roof
    Lucinda Lavender: ...which candidate was that Luci wonders
    stevenaia Michinaga: but this dog was cuter, all I remember was the dog climbing up the cage which was out on a porch
    stevenaia Michinaga: (Romni)
    stevenaia Michinaga: it was a cute white dog, but I don’t remember if dogs can climb up fences
    stevenaia Michinaga: or cages
    stevenaia Michinaga: (in RL)
    Lucinda Lavender: dream dogs can do lots of things
    Paradise Tennant: only the really talented ones use to have one that could climb a ladder
    Lucinda Lavender: more to the dream?
    stevenaia Michinaga: not that I remember
    Lucinda Lavender: porch seems a safer setting...putting that out there into the dream weave perhaps you were...
    stevenaia Michinaga: dog did not seem to be in any distress
    Lucinda Lavender: a porch is such a lovely place as long as what is happening there is not difficult
    Paradise Tennant: nods porches have a lot to recommend them :)
    Lucinda Lavender: part in and part out
    Lucinda Lavender: halfway into the house
    Lucinda Lavender: what color was this house?:)\
    Lucinda Lavender: ah...remember dof is wha=ite
    Paradise Tennant: shade ..cozy furniture .. not far from the fridge .. music accessible ... semi private .. but neighbours can stop and chat:) dog can watch the street .. sort of dog tv :)
    Lucinda Lavender: dog is white
    stevenaia Michinaga: the dog was white
    stevenaia Michinaga: don’t remember the house color
    Lucinda Lavender: animal beings have such big hearts...serve in so many ways
    Paradise Tennant: oh yes
    Paradise Tennant: they really bring one in touch with what is real
    Lucinda Lavender: climbing the cage...
    Lucinda Lavender: interesting image
    Lucinda Lavender: skill
    Lucinda Lavender: cage is like the dream weave
    stevenaia Michinaga: dream weave?
    Lucinda Lavender: threads of connection
    stevenaia Michinaga: aww
    Lucinda Lavender: lines of intersection
    Paradise Tennant: can you say more about the dream weave luci ?
    Lucinda Lavender: well...there are these invisible threads of connection...illusion perhaps yes...and perhaps it is how we connect to the world and the universe
    Paradise Tennant: smiles and feels invisibly connect to this circle :)
    Paradise Tennant: *connected
    stevenaia Michinaga: yes
    Lucinda Lavender: when dream images come in that seem to be from without of one’s personal view...more like connecting to the dream news
    Lucinda Lavender: we could also suppose that hearing of the dog in cage on top of a car was unpleasant...and that part might be personal reaction...
    Paradise Tennant: makes me think of an enormous cable dream tv network .. linking everything :)
    Lucinda Lavender: I often think we kind of help others by seeing potential for a better way
    Ewan Bonham: Yes, for me a dream goes with an interpretation..
    Lucinda Lavender: in the dream
    Paradise Tennant: we dream insight into others somehow ?
    Lucinda Lavender: perhaps into the image
    Ewan Bonham: I think we can offer them dream energy..
    Lucinda Lavender: yes...
    Paradise Tennant: smiles yes think our energy is very much connected
    Ewan Bonham: Yes, it is ...and you can feel it across the net..
    Lucinda Lavender: and sometimes what is seen is already about to happen...or also just a remote possibility
    Paradise Tennant: nods yes often think we are just one slice of a multindutenous confabulation lol going to have do a spell check
    Lucinda Lavender: have to really listen to the image...for a feeling or lack of it...
    Lucinda Lavender: the most clear seeing dreams for me were without feeling...just curiosity
    Lucinda Lavender: "I wonder how this could be?..."
    stevenaia Michinaga: watching dreams?
    Lucinda Lavender: nodding
    Lucinda Lavender: noticing dreams
    Ewan Bonham: nodding
    stevenaia Michinaga: like a movie playing
    Lucinda Lavender: yes...
    Lucinda Lavender: I think paying attention to the language used is important too
    Lucinda Lavender: studying the words we use to describe the dream experience
    Ewan Bonham: yes...tells a bit about us..
    Paradise Tennant: words put such a spin on things
    stevenaia Michinaga: nods, if what we see are surely ours
    Lucinda Lavender: if it were my dream ( Robert Moss says that...)I would wonder if there Romni was in the porch of the house(white house) and bringing in the animal being spirit...uncaged
    Lucinda Lavender: with climbing skills
    Aphrodite Macbain: It's the late Aphrodite
    Paradise Tennant: smiles hello aph we are dream talking :)
    Lucinda Lavender: HI Aph:)
    Paradise Tennant: and invisibly connected :)
    Aphrodite Macbain: I talk in m sleep a lot. I think I scare the cats and maybe the neighbours
    Paradise Tennant: lol
    Ewan Bonham: And I may talk in my sleep...but how would I know?
    Paradise Tennant: my dog barks in his sleep .. often wonder if he is giving me dream orders .. pretty sure .. they are commands to mom :)
    Aphrodite McCain: I wake myself up sometimes
    Paradise Tennant: lol
    Paradise Tennant: smiles
    Lucinda Lavender: :))
    Aphrodite Macbain: There's a moment when I start talking that I am aware I'm sleeping but I continue to talk. Strange feeling. Like being in 2 worlds
    Ewan Bonham: A foot in both worlds..
    stevenaia Michinaga: like trying to get up while in the dream
    Lucinda Lavender: nodding
    Paradise Tennant: smiles .. do that on the phone sometimes ramble away know I am sleeping .. have said funny things :)
    Aphrodite Macbain: oops
    Ewan Bonham: Hello Aphro
    Lucinda Lavender: I used to do that too (phone answering)
    Aphrodite Macbain: GTSY Ewan. Long time no see
    Aphrodite Macbain: phone answering while dreaming?
    Lucinda Lavender: in college days...much deeper sleep that was hard to come out of sometimes
    Aphrodite Macbain: Level 4
    Lucinda Lavender: long time ago
    Aphrodite Macbain: that's even deeper than dreaming
    Lucinda Lavender: I think it was related to a bit of PTSD as well
    Aphrodite Macbain: what kind of stress?
    Lucinda Lavender: adjusting to being on one’s own
    Lucinda Lavender: not having others to care for as main concern
    Aphrodite Macbain: you came from a big family?
    Lucinda Lavender: having own life
    Lucinda Lavender: tiny actually
    Aphrodite Macbain: I call that LESS stressful
    Aphrodite Macbain: hell is other people
    Lucinda Lavender: in some families yes
    Aphrodite Macbain: as Noel Coward said
    stevenaia Michinaga: I must sleep now
    Aphrodite Macbain: or someone said it
    stevenaia Michinaga: night all
    Paradise Tennant: sweet dreams stev ..hope you .. enjoy them

    Lucinda Lavender: :))
    Paradise Tennant: very seldom see scary movies remember watching one with snakes once that gave me a nightmare
    Archmage Atlantis: When dreams may come, what dreams they be
    Lucinda Lavender: nodding ...
    Archmage Atlantis: Lucy
    Lucinda Lavender: yes?
    Paradise Tennant: I leap off the bed .. one toe touching the ground hit the light switch did a back flip back to bed and woke on impact :) staring at the ground . a very normal carpet thought it was covered in snakes in my dreams
    Archmage Atlantis: in sky with diamonds. :)
    Lucinda Lavender: wow Paradise...you are very skilled!!
    Archmage Atlantis: I had a Blue Russian Cat......her name was sky
    Lucinda Lavender: Lucy like diamonds
    Paradise Tennant: lol was very gymnastic at the time :)
    Lucinda Lavender: and the sky
    Paradise Tennant: hmm what a lovely name
    Lucinda Lavender: nods
    Lucinda Lavender: and smiles
    Lucinda Lavender: practicing
    Archmage Atlantis: Yes sky had to learn about Nimbus
    Archmage Atlantis: He was my first Bengal kitty
    Lucinda Lavender: what did she have to learn?
    Archmage Atlantis: That she was not loved as she thought she was
    Lucinda Lavender: hard lesson I bet
    Lucinda Lavender: I am reminded of a snake dream...
    Archmage Atlantis: My partner at the time, whom she trusted, left her
    Lucinda Lavender: hard!
    Lucinda Lavender: it seemed like a dream of transformation since the snake left it's skin
    Lucinda Lavender: transformation/change is an interesting/hard thing to get through
    Lucinda Lavender: sometimes
    Archmage Atlantis: I approve of snakes.....and alligators.......and of understanding the role they play in the wilderness
    Archmage Atlantis: We are destined to find a new way
    Paradise Tennant: wow arch
    Lucinda Lavender: one book I have which is a book of women's dream symbols ...say the snake is a feminine image
    Paradise Tennant: love that sentence
    Paradise Tennant: we are destined to find a new ay
    Paradise Tennant: hmm
    Paradise Tennant: /
    Lucinda Lavender: finding a new path?
    Paradise Tennant: wonders how different from men woman really are
    Lucinda Lavender: nods
    Lucinda Lavender: perhaps not that different but symbols differ I guess in what time period they come from
    Lucinda Lavender: what was the view of the time
    Archmage Atlantis: To be a man, as my mama taught me, is to protect the "wimen and chillin"
    Lucinda Lavender: protector...
    Archmage Atlantis: What women teach their sons, is what men become
    Lucinda Lavender: Luci thinks about her son
    Paradise Tennant: oh boy
    Lucinda Lavender: ?
    Paradise Tennant: hmm think men .. become more than one parents teaching
    Paradise Tennant: we are an ever changing synthesis of breath, thought, interreaction, memory, circumstance
    Lucinda Lavender: much figures in...
    Archmage Atlantis: boys take their teaching from their moms........being gay, I took mine from my dad
    Paradise Tennant: with a bit of puppy dog tails thrown in .. or spice as the case may be
    Paradise Tennant: is that different to be gay
    Archmage Atlantis: A child is a huge obligation
    Paradise Tennant: cannot imagine it really being that different always think it is sort of the same . love is all love
    Archmage Atlantis: No one gets it "right"
    Paradise Tennant: lol so true arch so true
    Lucinda Lavender: I was pretty amazed to fine ancestors marrying very young...in their teens...
    Lucinda Lavender: in the 1600s
    Paradise Tennant: yes they did not live that long
    Paradise Tennant: 40 was old
    Lucinda Lavender: really something to image
    Lucinda Lavender: imagine
    Archmage Atlantis: If one's life is measured by the most 30 years, 12 is adult
    Lucinda Lavender: now that age is pretty young
    Archmage Atlantis: Yes
    Archmage Atlantis: Yes and we need to use that time
    Archmage Atlantis: Because time is flexible, and it can flex
    Lucinda Lavender: when I was 12 I told my mom I could not live with her...it seems like an age that one is becoming more adult in some ways
    Archmage Atlantis: Agree
    Archmage Atlantis: There are changes in neurobiology that document the changes in goring
    Lucinda Lavender: can you say more about time flexing?
    Archmage Atlantis: I will try to do so, Luci
    Paradise Tennant: gives luci's 12 year old self a hug .. such a brave little girl/grownup
    Archmage Atlantis: As I think that comment was directed to me
    Lucinda Lavender: bravely committed to survival
    Lucinda Lavender: go for it arch
    Lucinda Lavender: thank you Paradise:)
    Lucinda Lavender: receives hug
    Archmage Atlantis: In the beginning, we humans became aware of the challenges of life.....and it was good
    Archmage Atlantis: Then we saw that other beings in this time space continue
    Archmage Atlantis: So we began to ask questions
    Archmage Atlantis: We are still asking
    Lucinda Lavender: how time might flex is another question...
    Lucinda Lavender: that seems like a sort of scientific one...
    Archmage Atlantis: Luci, science is imagination, with shared observation'
    Lucinda Lavender: I only know from my experience that it appears to move slow and fast tho it is not really changing...just my view is
    Archmage Atlantis: Actually, both change....one's view, and what is
    Lucinda Lavender: ...ok...how can what is change?
    Archmage Atlantis: That is why dreaming is both, poetic and science
    Lucinda Lavender: :)
    Paradise Tennant: smiles at Arch ..
    Archmage Atlantis: The scientist who began organic chemistry as a subject all pre med students now study
    Archmage Atlantis: He dreamed the way the carbon atom dances
    Lucinda Lavender: Hi Tess
    Lucinda Lavender: nods
    Lucinda Lavender: to Arch
    Lucinda Lavender: we are informed by dreaming
    Lucinda Lavender: because perhaps when un fettered by sensing in the moment we focus differently
    Lucinda Lavender: ?
    Paradise Tennant: yes we are free of our senses in a way .. more open to reality as it may be
    Paradise Tennant: hiya Tess
    Lucinda Lavender: the information gets sorted:)
    Archmage Atlantis: hello Tesss
    Tess Aristocrat: hello
    Archmage Atlantis: Oops....to much black snake in the mix

    Tess Aristocrat: and you all
    Lucinda Lavender: why too much?
    Lucinda Lavender: black snake I mean...
    Archmage Atlantis: BS tries to be friendly, while snaking up on mice
    Lucinda Lavender: Luci sees Tess and thinks of skating...
    Lucinda Lavender: skating snaking...
    Tess Aristocrat: ah, skating..
    Archmage Atlantis: Poligize
    Archmage Atlantis: need to separate
    Lucinda Lavender: snaking skating
    Tess Aristocrat: Suddenly, Christmas seems so far away..
