    SophiaSharon Larnia: how interesting that it did not come up before


    stevenaia Michinaga: I love Bleu's theme for the next Art as Being project...Clarity, wonders where one begins
    SophiaSharon Larnia: I llove the idea also
    Ewan Bonham: /
    stevenaia Michinaga: how does one manifest it in sculptureal form
    Ewan Bonham: So, it is Clarity?
    SophiaSharon Larnia: re: filling up... I have not been keeping up with the logs so only have the slightest idea what is meant by that, a recap?
    stevenaia Michinaga: hmm, almost freudian
    stevenaia Michinaga: the opposite of dropping,sophia
    stevenaia Michinaga: last night we were discussing the different viewpoints we had of it,
    Ewan Bonham: Is it kinda of uplifting?
    stevenaia Michinaga: probably worth re-reading
    SophiaSharon Larnia: thank you :)
    stevenaia Michinaga: or something the shed
    stevenaia Michinaga: I am always amazed how many persectives different people can have of a word
    stevenaia Michinaga: hi Luci
    Ewan Bonham: Hi Luci..
    Ewan Bonham: Reflections of our minds..
    SophiaSharon Larnia: dropping labels and catagories, filling up with a clearer view of what is there
    SophiaSharon Larnia: ?
    SophiaSharon Larnia: hi Luci :)
    Lucinda Lavender: Hi everyone
    SophiaSharon Larnia: aww Luci, I think the lag bug got you
    Lucinda Lavender: feels like it
    Lucinda Lavender: any certain word?
    stevenaia Michinaga: right now my arm are filled with cat between me and my computer
    Lucinda Lavender: :))
    SophiaSharon Larnia: :)
    stevenaia Michinaga: filling up... this weeks theme
    Lucinda Lavender: filling up the stomach it ocurrs to me
    stevenaia Michinaga: put yes, just about any word
    SophiaSharon Larnia: heh
    SophiaSharon Larnia: filling up so one doesn't have to think, it occurs to me
    stevenaia Michinaga: nods, I have some ice cream in the freezer, brb, good idea
    Ewan Bonham: So, we can fill up with the word and meaning of play?
    Lucinda Lavender: filling to absorb I am thinking...
    SophiaSharon Larnia: sure Ewan :))
    Lucinda Lavender: nice question Ewan
    Ewan Bonham: Smiling.. looking like he knows what he is talking about..
    SophiaSharon Larnia: also think of filling up as that feeling when you are filled with joy
    SophiaSharon Larnia: like fuel
    Ewan Bonham: Nodding.. Sharon..
    stevenaia Michinaga: perhaps I am taking it a bit to literal :)


    SophiaSharon Larnia: hahah
    Lucinda Lavender: full of smiles
    stevenaia Michinaga: and love
    Ewan Bonham: Can you fill yourself with Love?
    SophiaSharon Larnia: Ive taken the term dropping to mean dropping labels, categories and compartmentalizing in general..... I had had the idea that the "goal", if there ever is one, is to sustain that viewing point
    Ewan Bonham: Would it not keep radiating out of you?
    SophiaSharon Larnia: it didnt occur to me to fill up
    stevenaia Michinaga: I belive you can have an infinite capacity
    stevenaia Michinaga: so you can try, but there;s always room for more
    Ewan Bonham: Smile... yes
    stevenaia Michinaga: sounds like the perfect thing to fill up on, and no calories
    SophiaSharon Larnia: :)
    stevenaia Michinaga: hi Hana
    SophiaSharon Larnia: hi Hana :)
    Ewan Bonham: Hi Hana
    Hana Furlough: Hi all!
    SophiaSharon Larnia: how wonderful to see you
    Hana Furlough: and you! it's been awhile : )
    SophiaSharon Larnia: nods
    Lucinda Lavender: sometimes I feel like more than the usual things happen of a positive sort...then I feel jazzed...Hi Hana! but it is real easy to forget that the absense of everything going smoothly is very probable as well
    Hana Furlough: or both at the same time, the good and the bad, no?
    Lucinda Lavender: when more responsibilities feel to be piling up then I like to empty to get a handle on things
    Ewan Bonham: Empty the mind... then allow the heart to 'breath'?
    Lucinda Lavender: yes...like that Ewan
    Lucinda Lavender: sometimes it is hard to see the way there tho
    stevenaia Michinaga: yes, filling up with life
    stevenaia Michinaga: greatful for the things that are simple and just there
    stevenaia Michinaga: something you cannot drop
    Lucinda Lavender: this week I asked the preschoolers"what are you thankful for but by way of saying what things I was thankful for, like school family,friends,food, etc...but after I described that I say but what I really wonder about is what makes you happy?and they perked right up and had ideas
    Hana Furlough: : )
    Ewan Bonham: Grateful is a more mature term because for me, it means I have to step out of my own skin for a moment..
    stevenaia Michinaga: some things are universally understood


    Lucinda Lavender: I really emphasized that I was really curious about them...I was ready to hear their ideas...it felt like it gave them permission to share.
    Hana Furlough: can you tell us what they said?
    Lucinda Lavender: one child liked farm equiptment...loves learning about it..most said tangible things rather than family members etc
    Hana Furlough: ha ha cute
    Lucinda Lavender: :)
    Lucinda Lavender: i guess my thought was we can fill up with things and also thoughts of things
    stevenaia Michinaga: I wonder if you asked what makes them smile, if theor answers would be different
    Lucinda Lavender: nodding and smiling...good idea
    Lucinda Lavender: sorry I cannot remember all the answers:)
    stevenaia Michinaga: I must go now, have a happy thanksgiving for those who celabrate
    stevenaia Michinaga: and a good rest of your week to the rest
    Hana Furlough: thanks, you too, stevenaia!
