    Tess Aristocrat: yes :)
    Paradise Tennant: being together is a great topic . how .. does being change in company :)
    Paradise Tennant: "being"
    druth Vlodovic: our surface of our being certainly changes in company
    stevenaia Michinaga: surface?
    Paradise Tennant: I smile more :)
    Tess Aristocrat: I feel like I absorb others' company
    druth Vlodovic: interesting Tess, you mean they become part of you?
    Tess Aristocrat: No, I mean they kind of leave their aura with me
    Tess Aristocrat: or is that a yes?
    Paradise Tennant: a feeling of their presence that stays ?
    Tess Aristocrat: yes
    Tess Aristocrat: don't you get that when you've been around your friends?
    Paradise Tennant: if there are emotions yes if they are sad I am sad happy ..then happy
    druth Vlodovic: lol, good, the poor fountain sounded lonely
    oO0Oo Resident: Haha dats funny!!
    Paradise Tennant: sometimes do you ever get a sense of someone's presence and know they are not really there .. just a bit of a feeling to them ... use to get that with my grandmother all the time
    Tess Aristocrat: yes..with my father
    Paradise Tennant: smiles an aura of his love for you :)
    stevenaia Michinaga: bed time, sorry
    Archmage Atlantis: All my ancestors are with me in this circle, Paradise
    Tess Aristocrat: There is a particular smell that smells just like his house
    Paradise Tennant: smiles nite nite stev :) regards to fubu ;)
    oO0Oo Resident: Night Stev.. :)
    Tess Aristocrat: every once in a while it will just waft up out of nowhere...
    Tess Aristocrat: and then, it will be gone just a quickly..
    Paradise Tennant: smiles at arch :)
    Paradise Tennant: sounds nice Tess .. kind of a momentary visit or remembrance
    Tess Aristocrat: I just always smile to myself and think, 'well, here's my dad come to visit'
    Tess Aristocrat: waves and slips silently away..bedtime for me too..xox
    Paradise Tennant: nite nite tess thank you
    oO0Oo Resident: Night Tess :)
    Paradise Tennant: find it someone has really made me laugh .. it will bubble up again .. the laughter and a strong sense of that moment in time .
    Paradise Tennant: like that alot really like getting the ability to rewind :)
    druth Vlodovic: shades of roger rabbit :)
    Paradise Tennant: smiles druth when you said the surface of our being changed in company what did you mean ?
    druth Vlodovic: oh we are what we are
    druth Vlodovic: but what we're aware of at any given moment changes
    druth Vlodovic: and what we present
    druth Vlodovic: being with trusted friends helps us accept ourselves, and be more "us"
    Paradise Tennant: yes
    druth Vlodovic: certainly a path to happiness (if we're still doing our topic)
    Paradise Tennant: smiles they co mingle .. being with trusted friends and being happy :)
    Paradise Tennant: always think trust is the basis of everything in life .. the basic economic unit of our world ..
    Paradise Tennant: we need to trust ourselves those around us .. the future :)) .. on almost every level
    druth Vlodovic: why something bad done to you by a friend is so much worse than when done by someone else
    druth Vlodovic: trust is an antidote to fear?
    druth Vlodovic: certainly to timidity :)
    Paradise Tennant: nods .. thinks so .. fear maybe is the absence of trust then
    Paradise Tennant: maybe trust does not have to have any conditions .. :) maybe we can trust people even if they are not always at their best .. just trust that they are who they are .. imperfect on the surface but pure gold deep within :)
    druth Vlodovic: lol, trusting that a human is human?
    Paradise Tennant: smiles why dogs are so much easier :)
    druth Vlodovic: and little kids
    druth Vlodovic: trust is one of the passive states
    Paradise Tennant: hmm
    druth Vlodovic: nothing required, pretty much by definition
    druth Vlodovic: a place where you can relax
    Paradise Tennant: sometimes I think it takes stilling surrender .. acceptance .. sometimes easier said than done :)) think it makes your heart bigger :)
    druth Vlodovic: "easier"
    oO0Oo Resident: .-''''-.,.-''''-.
    oO0Oo Resident: ! ((( * ))) !
    oO0Oo Resident: ". ♥ ."
    oO0Oo Resident: '''-.,.-'''
    druth Vlodovic: I am sitting here trying to tell my daughter the diff between a "difficult" situation" and putting effort into it
    Paradise Tennant: smiles
    druth Vlodovic: how do you "take it easy" while dealing with a difficulty
    Paradise Tennant: smiles view the difficulty as being ok :) ...
    oO0Oo Resident: clarity helps
    Paradise Tennant: as just part of the whole :)
    Paradise Tennant: have to either be .. fully engaged and totally in flow .. or at least in a state of acceptance then .. all the hard stuff just slides away
    oO0Oo Resident: :)
    druth Vlodovic: trusting yourself often involves knowing when you're being unfair and accepting it
    druth Vlodovic: lol, accepting the feelings that is
    Paradise Tennant: smiles
    Paradise Tennant: think life is always unfair but the key is to make it interesting and usually that is not so hard to do ..because it is just an amazing trip we are all on :)
    Paradise Tennant: sorry bell
    druth Vlodovic: paradise is all bubbling with things today, and the bell is getting badly abused as a result :)
    oO0Oo Resident: Haha dats funny!!
    Paradise Tennant: pats the bell gently
    druth Vlodovic: it heals well
    oO0Oo Resident: meep!
    Paradise Tennant: smiles getting sleepy here think I will have to say thank you really enjoyed the company .... being with trusted friends :))
    oO0Oo Resident: Night Paradise... Night Druth :)
