    The Guardian for this meeting was Storm Nordwind. The comments are by Storm Nordwind. The text is taken from Storm's chat log, not from the auto-logger, as the sim restarted and we adjourned to the Kira Cafe.

    Music for a Halloween party.

    Korel Laloix: Heya.
    Storm Nordwind: Good morning Korel :)
    Korel Laloix smiles... what you up to today?
    Storm Nordwind: Well it's the start of November, so I always have chores at the start of a month here around my condo complex :)
    Korel Laloix: Oh OK... sounds like a good way to handle the common work.
    Storm Nordwind: And as it's this time of year, I'm playing the most appropriate music - best Halloween album ever ;)
    Korel Laloix: What is that?
    Storm Nordwind: "Dead Man's Party" by Oingo Boingo. It's getting a little old now (1984) but it's still the best ;)
    Korel Laloix: Will have a look... one sec... going to look for Reeba's headphones.
    Storm Nordwind: Welcome Fc!
    Korel Laloix: Heya
    FcSeeker: _/!\_
    Korel Laloix: Found Oingo Boingo on the Gong Show... not very watchable... or listenable...
    Korel Laloix: Looking more.
    Storm Nordwind: Title track: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iypUpv9xelg and my fave track https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-CZCKP-H4C8
    Storm Nordwind: Hi Ari.
    Ari (arisia.vita): Hi Storm
    Ari (arisia.vita): and what a treat to see Fc here
    FcSeeker: Helloooo love :)
    Korel Laloix: Actually have heard that one before.

    It's All Saints Day. So what makes a saint?

    Storm Nordwind: Meanwhile... since it is All Saints Day (unless you prefer Día de los Muertos!) I was wondering: "What makes a saint?"

    Second Life: Region will restart in 5 minutes.

    Korel Laloix: Good question....
    Ari (arisia.vita): restart?
    Ari (arisia.vita): unusual for Thursday
    Korel Laloix: Of course..... my luck.
    Storm Nordwind: Seems so. Would you all like to walk to the Cafe?
    Ari (arisia.vita): sure
    Korel Laloix: Sure.

    ... ... ...

    Ari (arisia.vita) reaches down to give Fc a hand
    Korel Laloix: Silly time for a restart.
    Storm Nordwind smiles
    Storm Nordwind: hmm... in line with Día de los Muertos, is there ever a good time for a restart? ;)
    Ari (arisia.vita): yes, when the end is reached... :)

    Being a saint.

    FcSeeker: there was time ....quite a long ....that I got much headache for the saint thing....
    Storm Nordwind: Oh Fc?
    FcSeeker: as I withdrawed from the publick basicly for that reason
    FcSeeker: because I started to get letters and calls how I am a saint
    Korel Laloix: Just reading up on the Saint process. It is interesing to read.. at least the Catholic version.
    FcSeeker: that's what put me to think much this saint thing also, because I have saved more than 3 person's life...
    FcSeeker: but I got out of the headache with the help of the friend
    FcSeeker: as she reminded me of people's right to think how they think....that it's not my headache to worry for that...
    Storm Nordwind smiles
    Korel Laloix: True... and the whole saint thing means different things to different people.
    FcSeeker: then she said also this; "Maybe they wouldn't been able to receive help from you without such thinking"
    Storm Nordwind: A very good point
    FcSeeker: well...about that I dont know, but how I finally go
    FcSeeker: complete peace with such
    FcSeeker: was, that I realized that it is people who make saints
    Korel Laloix: Complete peace sounds so lovely.
    FcSeeker: in other words; that has only the same value if they make devils....
    FcSeeker: so...truly not up to me to worry....wouldn't have time to anything else if worries for how people think....
    Storm Nordwind nods and smiles
    Ari (arisia.vita): so true
    Korel Laloix: You can't completely set yourself apart though.
    Korel Laloix: You have to at least have an awarenes to get along.
    FcSeeker: but yes; as so called saint, one cannot anymore speak freely....so I withdrawed
    Korel Laloix: And getting feedback is sometimes a good thing.
    FcSeeker: from public
    Korel Laloix: That sounds tempting as well.

    Getting back to sanity.

    Storm Nordwind: I remember once writing a short poem:

    Time to choose:
    which to become?
    or Saint.

    FcSeeker: smiles widely
    Ari (arisia.vita): that's lovely Storm
    Korel Laloix: But why limited to just one?... smiles
    Storm Nordwind: haha! :)
    Ari (arisia.vita): indeed Korel
    FcSeeker: know what Storm....
    FcSeeker: what a foolish idea I got those times; your poem tells about that
    FcSeeker: as I truly thought that I simply must start to grow to be like the saint :)
    FcSeeker: well...I got back to sanity quite soon

    A good goal?

    Korel Laloix: Maybe not a must... but a good goal maybe.
    Korel Laloix: What is sanity?... smiles
    FcSeeker: hm...why a good goal ?
    Korel Laloix: Some saints really did make great differences... Mother Therssa for instance.
    Korel Laloix: Perhaps being like her could be a good goal for some.
    FcSeeker: think it's to be in balance with the truth one is aware...
    FcSeeker: I've thought her also a lot ...
    FcSeeker: she also just did what her heart told her to do...
    FcSeeker: I think it's the base that all of the people should have as the goal
    Korel Laloix: I think there are many people that live lives worth of mimicing.

    The silent ones of the Earth.

    FcSeeker: ...so many saint stories are not told....
    Korel Laloix: And so many that are sainted in one way or another that are not worthy of that respect.
    FcSeeker: in my home country people speak about such people as 'the silent ones of the Earth'
    Storm Nordwind: That is a wonderful name :))
    Ari (arisia.vita): Do saints care about fame?
    FcSeeker: no
    Storm Nordwind: I suspect, Ari, only if it helps them to help others
    Korel Laloix: I would say that a real saint would care about fame.... to avoid it.
    FcSeeker: I agree with you Korel with that
    Korel Laloix: There are many way people elivate others.
    Korel Laloix: And tear them down.
    FcSeeker: and I take that to be the reason, that when one is taken to be the saint, one's words are taken too strongly
    Korel Laloix: Depends on teh audience.
    FcSeeker: also one's all doings wouldn't be good to all of the people....so the fame twists things of life....
    Korel Laloix: Back in a bit.
    FcSeeker: and the more audience there is, the more there's also twisting things
    Korel Laloix: Need to go find a snack..
    FcSeeker: ...thinking how many people uses stories of Jesus' as the power ower other people, which for sure Jesus never meant
    Storm Nordwind nods
    Ari (arisia.vita): Jesus did not want to command, he wanted to love...


    Storm Nordwind: By the way, it seems our normal sim has successfully restarted. Would you like to return to the pavilion, or shall we stay here?
