    Eden Haiku: IM nostalgic of sessions where Moon would come and rezz meadows and forests...

    oO0Oo Resident feels it's near

    Eden Haiku: Feeling quiet;)
    Pema Pera: very quiet . . .
    Eliza Madrigal: ::takes some pictures::::
    oO0Oo Resident: delicate and tenuous as the poppies petals.. encounter the quietness..
    Eden Haiku: how poetic O!
    Pema Pera: I enjoyed what you wrote in the 99 days notes today, Eden, about getting nourishment from the country side, even in the middle of a big city, just by imagining the country side -- isn't that interesting, how that can work? And this landscape here is a great example!

    Eliza Madrigal: Eden's garden :)
    Pema Pera: hahaha, yes
    Pema Pera looking around for low hanging fruit . . .
    Eden Haiku: Yes Pema, I almost forgot how it "feels" in Second Life sometimes, such a feeling of "presence" even if never met any of you in the flesh ...
    Eliza Madrigal: yes lovely, O
    Eden Haiku: I think what triggered the sensation this afternoon is there were crickets in the sountrack. Just like here :)
    Pema Pera: ah!
    Eliza Madrigal: :)
    Eliza Madrigal: angels in the architecture
    oO0Oo Resident: just like = virtual ;)
    Pema Pera: :)
    Eden Haiku: From crickets to pavilion to meadows Moon used to create, my train of thoughts brought me here tonite :)
    oO0Oo Resident: :)
    Pema Pera is glad for the train that brought Eden here!
    Eden Haiku: I'm glad to be here too :)

    Pema Pera: talking about Moon brings back many memories of the first few months of PaB
    Pema Pera: almost four years ago . . . .
    Eden Haiku: Wow, yes, 4 years...
    Pema Pera: Eliza joined us at the end of the first year
    Pema Pera: when did you first enter PaB, Eden?
    Eden Haiku: You celebrated your rezz day recently Elia didn't you? And your PaB anniversary is on Valentine Day right?
    Eliza Madrigal smiles, yes
    Eliza Madrigal: guess I gush a bit :)
    Pema Pera: :-) sounds like a new song: guess I gush !
    Eden Haiku: My first PaB session was Novembre 2nd 2009. The Day of the Dead i Catholic Church :) I was still mourning my mother.
    Pema Pera: yes, I remember
    Pema Pera: (not the day, but the mourning and your talking about that)


    oO0Oo Resident: http://is.gd/8wCe5V
    Pema Pera: yes, an all-time classic !!

    eden's garden_003.png

    Eliza Madrigal remembers too... peeked at the session just now and sees Eden noticing gardenias that day she arrived
    Eden Haiku: Yep, I defintely felt my moter was sitting with us :) She's gone in further realms by now :)
    Eden Haiku: How funny, I thought about gardenias today, talked about them. I LOVE gardenias.
    Eden Haiku: Do you have them in Florida?

    Tess Aristocrat: I feel that way too..about loved ones that have passed on..at first I feel them still all around and very close
    Eliza Madrigal: Oh yes....
    Eden Haiku: You do, Tess, how interesting. It was the first time I was losing someone close.
    Tess Aristocrat: And then, as the years pass, they are not as close as they were, but every once in a while I will feel them
    oO0Oo Resident: garden-eden-ia
    Eliza Madrigal: evocative fragrances
    Eden Haiku: Ah yes,it's like a subtler presence isn' it? Closer to the heart.
    Eliza Madrigal: mmm
    Tess Aristocrat: That's how it has felt with my father, yes
    oO0Oo Resident thinks of Maxine's whole heartedness invocation
    Eden Haiku: My father is 87 and in very good health but I know I will have to go though that...
    Tess Aristocrat: I think he still comes around every once in a while, still :)
    Eliza Madrigal: :)
    Eden Haiku: Would love to be able to really talk with him before he leaves. He lives just downstairs but it's not easy to reach him...
    Tess Aristocrat: mmm
    Pema Pera: the first few months after my mother passed away, I regularly met her in my dreams, and often upon waking up had to think for a while whether she was still alive or not . . . .
    Eden Haiku: Oh!
    Tess Aristocrat: Your dad, does he have Alz?
    Eliza Madrigal: oh, Pema... rather nice actually... to continue walking a while
    Pema Pera: yes, it had both sides . . .
    Eden Haiku: Doing Christmas shopping I saw a new French novel at a bookstore, was tempted but I knew it was very expenseive. But then I thought: oh, but Mom will read it too, she'll love that book, so it,s worth buying it. Then I realized ina flash she had died almost 4 years ago...
    Pema Pera: yes, I know the feeling
    Pema Pera: things I'd like to show my father, about my work for example
    oO0Oo Resident: *
    Eden Haiku: No, he's fine, losing a bit of memory but mainly very fnctional drivinh his car. He's just not talkative. Not about real subjects. He can comment the news endlessly though...
    Pema Pera: like an asteroid that was named after me, just a few months after he died; he would have been so thrilled . . . .
    Tess Aristocrat: :)
    oO0Oo Resident: *
    Pema Pera: hi Paradise!
    Eliza Madrigal: :)
    Tess Aristocrat: Para!
    Eliza Madrigal: Hello Paradise, welcome to Eden :)
    oO0Oo Resident: Para :)
    Eliza Madrigal: will make you a note
    Pema Pera: hi Luci!
    Tess Aristocrat: Luci Lavender!
    oO0Oo Resident: Luci :)
    Eliza Madrigal will have her grandfather over tomorrow for his birthday dinner... endless news brought that to mind :))
    Paradise Tennant: we are in spring :)
    Eden Haiku: There is a Piet Hut astoroid up there! Wow! Staring at her ceiling... But I undrstand how it miust feel Pema...not being able to share that with him...
    Paradise Tennant: looks way up an smiles
    Eden Haiku: Hi ucinda:)
    Tess Aristocrat: and yet, perhaps he knows :)
    Eden Haiku: Lucinda:)
    Paradise Tennant: smiles and waves all round :))


    Tess Aristocrat: Waves to Multi :)
    Multiverse1 Resident: the lavender, has changed colors
    Pema Pera: but just a few months before my father died, a friend of mine, astronaut, took a picture of his apartment block in The Hague from the international space station where he lived for half a year, and my father was really thrilled to show it to all his neighbors and friends :-)
    Multiverse1 Resident: but I do smell them
    Eliza Madrigal: wow :))
    Eden Haiku: What a great memory Pema :)
    Multiverse1 Resident: now i remember u
    Pema Pera: my father's comment: that must be how an angel sees my home :-)
    Eliza Madrigal smiles
    Tess Aristocrat: You know your father was very proud of you :)
    Eden Haiku: smiles
    Pema Pera: :-)
    Eliza Madrigal: a wonderful thing to have such a bond ... to have that longing for them to see...
    Multiverse1 Resident: hmm. orange lavender
    Multiverse1 Resident: golden
    Pema Pera: there is an extra twist: my father started studying physics, but then the second world war broke out, and he never got a chance to finish it -- so he was extra happy when I decided to study physics (not consciously following him, though, I was barely aware of that fact)
    Multiverse1 Resident: eden haiku, thats a twist
    Tess Aristocrat: some things are inherited
    oO0Oo Resident: vast view of angels.. riding the bullet trains of asteroids.. never far from home
    Eden Haiku: How significant though, you made his dream come true...
    Multiverse1 Resident: and some things inherent
    Pema Pera: as for the space station: it is helpful sometimes to have friends in high places :-)
    Eden Haiku: hehe
    Lucinda Lavender: :)
    Multiverse1 Resident: who dreams?
    Tess Aristocrat: I have lots of vivid colorful dreams
    Eden Haiku: Would like to have a picture of my home from your friend's angel view...
    Multiverse1 Resident: and of what
    Pema Pera: ah, he switched to working for Google :-)
    Pema Pera: too late, Eden!

    eden's garden_007.png

    Eden Haiku: Sorry Multiverse. was talking about Pema's father who studies physics and I to stop because of the war.
    Multiverse1 Resident: i love the plants here
    oO0Oo Resident: I dreamt that I was being carried by some other sacredness
    Eden Haiku: I can almost smell them
    Multiverse1 Resident: physical world\knew this was important to you pema
    Pema Pera: can you say more, Sam?
    Lucinda Lavender: Luci listens
    oO0Oo Resident: I'd like to.. but not sure I can.. to be honest :)
    Multiverse1 Resident: multi hears the sounds
    Tess Aristocrat: haha..i totally understand that
    Lucinda Lavender: Pema...where is your asteroid ...?
    Pema Pera: somewhere between Jupiter and Mars
    Lucinda Lavender: just thinking I would like to know...
    Multiverse1 Resident: is that a thing/
    Pema Pera: :-)
    Tess Aristocrat: some of my dreams are hard to describe
    Pema Pera: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Piethut
    Lucinda Lavender: thanks
    Eliza Madrigal: :::hums:::
    Multiverse1 Resident: where is the bell, when you need it?
    Multiverse1 Resident: joke
    Tess Aristocrat: :)

    Paradise Tennant: smiles
    Multiverse1 Resident: I often pause for 3 secs
    oO0Oo Resident: friends in high places? http://is.gd/CrkXZl
    Eden Haiku: I guess you are the one who discovered it Pema?
    Pema Pera: no, someone else did
    Multiverse1 Resident: christopher pema
    Eliza Madrigal: who liked you a lot? hah
    Pema Pera: someone who discovers many asteroids, and may then name them after friends
    Eliza Madrigal: :)))
    Multiverse1 Resident: 786.8
    Pema Pera: "my" asteroid is number 17031 -- so not really that special :-)
    Lucinda Lavender: do the asteroids move a different speed than the planets?
    Pema Pera: no, they move in between
    Eden Haiku: LOvely picture f you with the Dalai Lama Pema:) feeling a bit jealous...
    Pema Pera: like this one in between Jupiter and Mars
    Pema Pera: think Frank Sinatra
    oO0Oo Resident contemplates asteroids as avatars.. seeking across time and space
    Multiverse1 Resident: velocity is relative

    Pema Pera:
    Fly me to the moon
    Let me play among the stars
    Let me see what spring is like
    On Jupiter and Mars

    Eliza Madrigal looks around for other friends with asteroids named after them
    Multiverse1 Resident: what day was that?
    Tess Aristocrat: In other words!
    Lucinda Lavender: do smaller bodies move slower?
    Pema Pera: no
    oO0Oo Resident snaps fingers and smiles to Pema's singing :)
    Multiverse1 Resident: how many words?
    Pema Pera: independent of size
    Lucinda Lavender: hmm
    Multiverse1 Resident: 17 words then
    Eden Haiku: hums "Fly me to the moon."
    Pema Pera: :-)
    Lucinda Lavender: a space song
    Multiverse1 Resident: oh no, not this day
    Tess Aristocrat: yes, thanks for getting That song stuck in my head :P
    Pema Pera thinks about writing a song "Fly me to asteroid 17031" . . . .
    Multiverse1 Resident: earworm
    Lucinda Lavender: :)
    oO0Oo Resident: lol

    Lucinda Lavender: Luci wonders if there is an asteroid named Lucinda
    Pema Pera: a bit more private than Jupiter and Mars
    Eden Haiku: Yeah, great idea Pema! Please do...:))
    Multiverse1 Resident: how many droplets, in the pond?
    Multiverse1 Resident: brb
    oO0Oo Resident: see as being flying being


    Multiverse1 Resident: no wings
    Multiverse1 Resident: perhaps, a tie-died knot.
    Pema Pera: how so, Multi?
    Multiverse1 Resident: what?
    Pema Pera: exactly
    Pema Pera wondering whether Multi sometimes has a random number generator for sentences :-)
    Multiverse1 Resident: at least close
    Pema Pera: disconnected from the conversation at hand
    Multiverse1 Resident: i do, and.... welll, an inkwell persues
    oO0Oo Resident: random roads to the fragile heart of it all
    Multiverse1 Resident: so what is the topic then?
    Eliza Madrigal: :) could see the note and IMs Multi...
    Multiverse1 Resident: for 22 increments
