    Agatha Macbeth: Hello Liz :)

    Eliza Madrigal: ::::zooms in::::
    Agatha Macbeth: Are you well?
    Eliza Madrigal: Amazing outfit :)
    Agatha Macbeth: ty :)
    Agatha Macbeth: I,ve had it a while to be honest
    Agatha Macbeth: You look rather colourful too
    Eliza Madrigal: yes... getting into Happiness mode :)
    Eliza Madrigal: not there yet but feeding the muses
    Agatha Macbeth: Good ♥
    Agatha Macbeth: Lucky muses eh?
    Eliza Madrigal: :)
    Eliza Madrigal: What about you? How doing?
    Agatha Macbeth: Oh I'm alright
    Agatha Macbeth: Quite good all things considered
    Eliza Madrigal: :))
    Agatha Macbeth: I didn't see your email about the event last night til about half an hour ago
    Agatha Macbeth: consequently couldn't come
    Eliza Madrigal: Ohh.. it was quite late for you also
    Eliza Madrigal: but it was a nice event... very full....
    Agatha Macbeth: Ah, good
    Eliza Madrigal: I was dancing to a Whitney Houston song when someone IMed me to tell me she died
    Agatha Macbeth: A worthy cause indeed
    Eliza Madrigal: yes, so good there are those resources
    Agatha Macbeth: Whitney Houston is dead?
    Eliza Madrigal: ah... eek....
    Agatha Macbeth: I didn't know
    Eliza Madrigal: yes, overdose :(
    Agatha Macbeth: When?
    Eliza Madrigal: 48 :(
    Eliza Madrigal: yesterday
    Agatha Macbeth: Oh dear
    Agatha Macbeth: Poor Whitney RIP
    Eliza Madrigal: stopped and said a little prayer
    Agatha Macbeth nods
    Eliza Madrigal: very sad... every resource the world had to offer
    Eliza Madrigal: but not enough
    Agatha Macbeth: Yes, evidently money didn't make her happy
    Eliza Madrigal: nor talent nor beauty
    Eliza Madrigal: nor family
    Agatha Macbeth: Exactly
    Agatha Macbeth: Same could be said for Marilyn Monroe
    Eliza Madrigal: yes
    Agatha Macbeth: So many people think 'If I had money or I was beautiful everything would be wonderful'
    Eliza Madrigal: indeed
    Agatha Macbeth: But it simply isn't true
    Eliza Madrigal: it isn't... in some cases it may amplify the loneliness
    Agatha Macbeth: We all need something else evidently
    Agatha Macbeth: Yes, true
    Eliza Madrigal: The Elton John song about Marylin I think hits the point...
    Eliza Madrigal: never knowing what to cling to
    Agatha Macbeth: Oh yes, absolutely
    Agatha Macbeth: Of course evrybody over here associates that song with Diana now
    Eliza Madrigal nods
    Alfred Kelberry: aga girl!
    Alfred Kelberry: she did it!
    Alfred Kelberry: hi guys :)
    Agatha Macbeth: Hello Boxyboy :)
    Eliza Madrigal: Diana was coming into her own though... thank goodness... even though a tragic end
    Eliza Madrigal: Hi Boxy :)
    Agatha Macbeth: Great to see you
    Eliza Madrigal: :)
    Agatha Macbeth: How's Alfie then?
    Eliza Madrigal: :))
    Eliza Madrigal: such a cute seat
    Alfred Kelberry: i'm good :)
    Agatha Macbeth: Rezzing prims already I see :p
    Alfred Kelberry: wuff!

    Eliza Madrigal: one day when I have a puppy I will find or make him a bed like that
    Agatha Macbeth: You iz one mad dog Alf
    Alfred Kelberry: had a nice night talk with woly and eliza last session :)
    Alfred Kelberry: i agrees
    Eliza Madrigal: :) yes pleasant way to begin the day, just re-woke an hour ago
    Agatha Macbeth: Wol was up late? Unusual
    Eliza Madrigal was up early
    Agatha Macbeth: Ah, that sounds more like it
    Alfred Kelberry: not late. usual time for her to be here.
    Agatha Macbeth: Ms Insomnia
    Eliza Madrigal: lots more dreams but I forget them all
    Agatha Macbeth: Can't tell any for Tuesday then?
    Eliza Madrigal: It isn't insomnia, but I have a strange pattern of waking around 4AMish
    Eliza Madrigal: nope Agatha, flown away :)
    Agatha Macbeth: Maybe should go to bed at 8PM? :p
    Eliza Madrigal grins
    Alfred Kelberry: it's guardians meeting today!
    Eliza Madrigal: it feels sort of good actually
    Agatha Macbeth: Sleep patterns can be funny things
    Eliza Madrigal: Yes, happy guardians meeting day :)
    Alfred Kelberry: yep
    Eliza Madrigal: also since I lightened dependence on coffee I'm seeing more natural habits
    Agatha Macbeth smiles
    Eliza Madrigal: so that is probably part of it
    Agatha Macbeth: Ah
    Agatha Macbeth:Try tea instead...
    Eliza Madrigal: I've always dreamed of being one of those amazing people who would wake at 4am and meditate... maybe I am, hah, though I come to PaB rather than meditate so far
    Agatha Macbeth: Just don't throw it overboard [grin]
    Eliza Madrigal: yes, having tea now :)
    Eliza Madrigal: hah :)
    Agatha Macbeth: No taxation without representation...
    Eliza Madrigal: do you sleep well Agatha and Boxy?
    Agatha Macbeth: Well since I came out of hospital I sleep better than ever strangely
    Eliza Madrigal: mmm
    Alfred Kelberry: most of the time
    Eliza Madrigal: maybe you allow yourself now?
    Agatha Macbeth: Possibly
    Agatha Macbeth: I just seem to sleep right through
    Agatha Macbeth: Tho I always set the alarm for 7 to take medication...
    Eliza Madrigal: nods, but a regular pattern, healthy
    Eliza Madrigal: :)
    Agatha Macbeth: Oh yes
    Agatha Macbeth: Oh, Adams just came on
    Agatha Macbeth: Wonder if she will visit?
    Eliza Madrigal: would be nice... Wol pointed me to Adams blog this morning... that we're reading the same author
    Alfred Kelberry: :P
    Eliza Madrigal: Bernadette Roberts
    Agatha Macbeth: Which one?
    Eliza Madrigal: snap :)
    Agatha Macbeth: Thanks :)
    Agatha Macbeth: Dunno her I'm afraid
    Eliza Madrigal: She is a Christian of the mystical bend
    Agatha Macbeth: Ah
    Agatha Macbeth: Not a buddhist then?
    Eliza Madrigal: and writes about no ego/ no self, in a way that one might say is quite buddhist
    Adams Rubble: Hello Everyone :)
    Agatha Macbeth: Right
    Eliza Madrigal: but she is really just speaking from her own experience
    Eliza Madrigal: Hi Adams ::)
    Agatha Macbeth: Adams :)

    Agatha Macbeth gasps for breath
    Adams Rubble: I am crazy busy these days :)
    Eliza Madrigal: hehe
    Agatha Macbeth nods
    Eliza Madrigal: nods
    Agatha Macbeth: Do you find you have busy seasons, or is it pretty consistent?
    Adams Rubble: :)
    Adams Rubble: To some degree but I am busier than I usually am this time of year
    Agatha Macbeth: Right
    Agatha Macbeth: Liz was just telling me about Bernadette...er...
    Agatha Macbeth reads back
    Eliza Madrigal: I went to the 1am session this morning Adams, and was pointed to your blog Adams, because I'm reading Bernadette Roberts "What Is Self" and mentioned that
    Adams Rubble: Hello Bertram :)

    Eliza Madrigal: Hi Bertram
    Agatha Macbeth: Roberts
    Bertram Jacobus: hi everybody :-)
    Adams Rubble: Ahhh
    Agatha Macbeth: hiya Berti
    Eliza Madrigal: I have been having dreams where I ask someone about no-self insight... and I like that she talks about no-ego and no-self being different things
    Eliza Madrigal: or as different things... weird to talk about
    Bertram Jacobus: slow rezzing here . but now i see - adams, aggers, eliza and boxy ! :-)
    Adams Rubble: Her way is a very painful way it seems
    Agatha Macbeth: Yes it is the Sunday lag syndrome I think
    Adams Rubble: but she has some interesting insights
    Eliza Madrigal: I haven't gotten far in reading but her quotes are striking.. remember that Solobill told me about her years ago
    Agatha Macbeth: Good old Solo
