    Lucinda Lavender: Hi Zen, Maxine,Sam,VectorBleu
    oO0Oo Resident: Hi Luci !
    Maxine Walden: yes, zen
    Maxine Walden: hi, luci!
    Vector Marksman: We would be overwhelmed and couldn't focus on what is important if you were thinking about feet that didn't hurt i supoose
    Vector Marksman: JIO
    Bleu Oleander: perhaps nature's way of letting us know we need to deal with the tooth :)
    Vector Marksman: yes
    Vector Marksman: pain is that
    Bleu Oleander: :)
    Maxine Walden: we are just finishing a session thinking about aspects of absence and loss, sort of shadows of previous experience
    Lucinda Lavender: ah...thanks ...
    Lucinda Lavender: I heard some thing about toothache...
    Bleu Oleander: nice to see you all ... must get to work ... bye for now :)

    Lucinda Lavender: I enjoyed your synopsis that came in email Maxine
    Maxine Walden: hope to see you next week. Luci, take care, and stay warm and safe (it is snowing, or just past so here in Seattle where Luci and I are)
    Maxine Walden: ah...see you again soon
    oO0Oo Resident: Bye, and Thanks Maxine (oh dear.. lag is ferocious.. struggling to keep up, but tc everyone)
    Lucinda Lavender: ok Maxine same for you

    oO0Oo Resident: Snow days off Luci :)
    Lucinda Lavender: :)
    Lucinda Lavender: getting rested
    Lucinda Lavender: the lag is definitely ferocoius
    Lucinda Lavender: I am off scedule a bit
    Lucinda Lavender: feel time going slower with less to do
    Lucinda Lavender: peaceful tho
    oO0Oo Resident nods.. Both Winter season, as well as "snowed in".. give for hunkering down ambiance
    Lucinda Lavender: brb...
    Lucinda Lavender: back
    oO0Oo Resident: wb
    Lucinda Lavender: what more can you say about the earier session
    Lucinda Lavender: ?
    oO0Oo Resident: Sadly I was caught by lag so much of it.. but talking about absence.
    Lucinda Lavender: hmm
    Lucinda Lavender: absence...of certain feelings come to mind
    oO0Oo Resident: [06:11] Maxine Walden: hoped we might continue the conversation today, if it suits, in considering the role of 'absence' in our experience...absence, which leaves memory traces of a previous presence...appreciate your thoughtful insights :) [06:12] Maxine Walden: Maybe just to say a few words re my thoughts: [06:12] Maxine Walden: it seems to me that absence, or the shadow of 'what was' as noted in memory is vital to our creative process.
    oO0Oo Resident hears "absence of certain feelings"... wonders...
    Lucinda Lavender: like I have memories of feelings that now seem past...hard to access sometimes
    Lucinda Lavender: well let me think...
    Lucinda Lavender: just woke up...and am drinking coffe
    Lucinda Lavender: lately I have noticed changes have ocurred and I sort of yearn for another time
    Lucinda Lavender: there is a certain energy when friendships are new perhaps...when one feels potential
    oO0Oo Resident: another you.. that was? Or anothercontext of environment?
    Lucinda Lavender: that potential to me is powerful
    oO0Oo Resident: me nods regarding potential
    Lucinda Lavender: well to use a map as a metaphor...travel to a new landscape with new people

    Lucinda Lavender: during early bonding perhaps...it feels more highly charged
    Lucinda Lavender: I watched a movie last night called The Help
    Lucinda Lavender: and one character would hold a child and teach her to say "I am kind, I am smart...and one more thing I happen to forget at the moment
    Lucinda Lavender: I was impressed that this teaching by a caregiver would last for the childs life
    Lucinda Lavender: some sort of beauty in it
    Lucinda Lavender: like teaching a basic truth
    Lucinda Lavender: to put knowlege of potential inside
    oO0Oo Resident: Theme seems to be.. 'the earlier, the more potent, and powerful'.. both in childhood development, learning, and meeting with new people and situations.
    Alfred Kelberry: hi! :)
    Lucinda Lavender: perhaps we are more open
    Alfred Kelberry: luci the hen girl :)

    Lucinda Lavender: Boxy the...?
    Alfred Kelberry: luci is shopping with para :)
    Alfred Kelberry: the... robopup :)
    oO0Oo Resident: I mentioned in Maxine's session about a TED talk that discusses what is learned pre-birth, which suggested, that what happens to us as a foetus, shapes our entire life experience profoundly
    Alfred Kelberry: wow
    Lucinda Lavender: :yes...I believe I have seen it too:)
    oO0Oo Resident: bow wow "wow" boxy :)
    Alfred Kelberry: well, yes. we choose to be either a boy or a girl :)
    Alfred Kelberry: it is quite profound :)
    Alfred Kelberry: luci is a girl :)
    Lucinda Lavender: a woman speaks about how the experience of ptsd while in utero is getting the child ready for the environment it will be born into...that one?
    Alfred Kelberry: with cute shoes
    Alfred Kelberry: oh, interesting
    Alfred Kelberry: ptsd
    Lucinda Lavender: :) in RL I wear hikingboots every day
    Lucinda Lavender: healing my toes...
    Alfred Kelberry: luci, so you're more of a boy actually :)

    oO0Oo Resident: . for the log: IMDB "the Help" (2011) http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1454029/ Good movie Luci?
    Lucinda Lavender: yes I appreciated it
    Lucinda Lavender: sam can you say more about the prebirth information?
    Lucinda Lavender: Luci is wondering how we could choose to be boy or girl too?
    Lucinda Lavender: Boxy I have not heard of that before...but I am curious about the idea
    oO0Oo Resident: Experiencing lots of packet loss, very low framerate, and light years ping from the server.. lol.. but... hm... pre-birth.. she spoke of the many new findings as to what is happening in the womb.. listens for Boxy's reply
    Lucinda Lavender: ah...taking it slowly then...
    Lucinda Lavender: he must be doing something else...
    oO0Oo Resident nods.. I'm appreciating just relaxing here
    Alfred Kelberry: wuff!
    Alfred Kelberry: :)
    Lucinda Lavender: Hi Boxy you are back?
    Alfred Kelberry: *nods*
    oO0Oo Resident: wb Boxy
    Lucinda Lavender: :)
    Lucinda Lavender: nice hoping
    Lucinda Lavender: hopping
    Alfred Kelberry: :)
    Lucinda Lavender: so Boxy...how is it that we could choose being a boy or girl ...you said something like that earlier and I am curious...
    Alfred Kelberry: um, "we"... during development
    Lucinda Lavender: not to put you on the spot...certainly
    Alfred Kelberry: i'm not sure what exactly takes place in this decision :)
    Alfred Kelberry: nature would be a safe bet :)
    Lucinda Lavender: there is a point in development where a certain hormonal thng happens...
    Alfred Kelberry: i mean, foetus development :)
    Lucinda Lavender: yes...
    Alfred Kelberry: hormonal changes in the belly?
    Lucinda Lavender: I sort of forget at which age that happens
    Alfred Kelberry: hmm
    Lucinda Lavender: well I will have to do some research:)
    Lucinda Lavender: have read of it and forgotten
    Alfred Kelberry: repetition is the key :)
    Lucinda Lavender: :)
    Lucinda Lavender: ok
    Lucinda Lavender: has anyone had an snteresting dream of late?
    Alfred Kelberry: nope
    Lucinda Lavender: speaking of forgetting...I had one in which I thought I forgot my way home...
    Alfred Kelberry: :)
    Lucinda Lavender: kind of scary thought
    oO0Oo Resident listens
    Alfred Kelberry: yea
    Alfred Kelberry: i think dreams are random visuals

    Alfred Kelberry: i don't analyse them
    Lucinda Lavender: ok:)
    Lucinda Lavender: for me they are random and understandable
    Lucinda Lavender: meaning perhaps that they have a richness
    oO0Oo Resident: Hi observerm :) ntsy
    Lucinda Lavender: Hi Observerm
    oO0Oo Resident: LunarNew Year coming up in a couple of days :Year of the WaterDragon. Thinking how this way of associating cycles of measuring time with symbols is similar to interpreting dreams.
    Lucinda Lavender: HI KOrel
    Korel Laloix: eya
    Korel Laloix: Heya
    oO0Oo Resident: Osiyo Korel
    Lucinda Lavender: interesting Sam
    Korel Laloix: Bozho
    Korel Laloix: What did I miss?
    Lucinda Lavender: well we were talking about absense, memory, and morerecently about dreams

    Lucinda Lavender: the word Bozho...what does it mean?
    Korel Laloix: Hello in Bode'wadmemwin
    Korel Laloix: AKA Potawatomi
    Lucinda Lavender: :) thanks:)
    Korel Laloix: Memory is odd how we use and missuse it.
    Alfred Kelberry: kori! :)
    Lucinda Lavender: can you say more?
    Alfred Kelberry: pota... hi :)
    Lucinda Lavender: And Sam to...about the time and waterdreagon etc?
    Korel Laloix: My brain seem to use memories against me sometimes.
    Alfred Kelberry: kori, explain
    Lucinda Lavender: Luci listens
    Korel Laloix: Emotional baggage is what I mean.
    Korel Laloix: Thanks that would make life so much better if you could just forget them.
    Korel Laloix: But your brain seems to latch onto them with such strength that they keep you captive.
    Korel Laloix: Or maybe that is just me.
    Alfred Kelberry: ah, that's what pab teaches - drop stuff :)
    Alfred Kelberry: you, young padawan, have things to learn :)
    Korel Laloix: Very easy words to say.
    Korel Laloix: Very hard things to do.
    Alfred Kelberry: indeed
    Alfred Kelberry: yet possible
    oO0Oo Resident: takes practice
    Korel Laloix: I know.
    Gilles Kuhn: Hoooooowls!!
    Gilles Kuhn: to all
    Korel Laloix: But sometimes, it is just best to learn to live with them, instead of trying to forget them.
    Korel Laloix: Heya
    oO0Oo Resident: Hi Gilles
    Lucinda Lavender: hi Giles
    Lucinda Lavender: making ones way through the comings and goings of memories...such a task
    Lucinda Lavender: have gone through times of feeling like there was something to uncover...

    Gilles Kuhn: i feel an urge to salivate...
    Alfred Kelberry: gah, crashed
    Lucinda Lavender: wb
    Alfred Kelberry: :)
    Korel Laloix: Thank you beter give Gilles your bone Box.
    Korel Laloix: Think
    Alfred Kelberry: *thorws a bone to the scary wolf*
    Gilles Kuhn: GNAP!
    Gilles Kuhn Flips upside down and kicks playfully chewing a human bone
    Alfred Kelberry: haha
    Alfred Kelberry: that was neat :)
    Korel Laloix: I am way too skiny to be wrth cheewing on.
    Lucinda Lavender: when I was younger I had the experience of listening to certain music a lot...it felt like it was a sad experience...
    Gilles Kuhn: bone are never so skinny ;-)
    Korel Laloix: What sort of music?
    Lucinda Lavender: and listening I would feel sad, cry etc....It was a song by Enya
    Alfred Kelberry: oh, i remember her
    Lucinda Lavender: and later I learned the song was called Evacuee
    Lucinda Lavender: and about some one leaving a parent
    Korel Laloix: Not a fan of hers.... Just not my sytle of music.
    Korel Laloix: Will find it though at home.
    Lucinda Lavender: did not know it for quite some time...but when I did learn that I realized that was why it pulled on the emotions for me
    Lucinda Lavender: I had to say good bye to a parent at several times in my life
    Korel Laloix: Those connections are hard.
    Lucinda Lavender: so...it worked for m as a geting in touch with memory kind of thing
    Alfred Kelberry: interesting
    Lucinda Lavender: felt all clear about it after a while
    Korel Laloix: There are a few songs that hold special memories for me.
    Lucinda Lavender: oddly I rarely listen to music anymore
    Korel Laloix: I alwasy have music on when I am doing homework or running.
    Lucinda Lavender: I think I needed to remember and let go of certain stuf perhaps
    Alfred Kelberry: sound and smell are very prominent in our memory
    Alfred Kelberry: can bind long forgotten events
    Gilles Kuhn: even more when you have big theets and big tail ;-)
    Lucinda Lavender: yes
    Korel Laloix: Very true for me at least.
    Alfred Kelberry: :)
    Lucinda Lavender: I like certain music for certain things perhaps
    Korel Laloix: What connections?
    Lucinda Lavender: ...for pauing bills and focussing..classical guitar
    Alfred Kelberry: ha!
    Korel Laloix: Not a big classiscal fan.... but some it good.
    Lucinda Lavender: very mathematical
    Lucinda Lavender: sets a tone for me
    Alfred Kelberry: kori, have you noticed that you often start your sentences with negation? :)

    Alfred Kelberry: cutely peculiar :)
    Korel Laloix: No (smiles), but that is a good point.
