    The Guardian for this meeting was Xirana Oximoxi. The comments are by Xirana Oximoxi.

    Xirana Oximoxi: hello Catrina!
    Catrinamonblue Resident: morning
    Xirana Oximoxi: have you been here before and know about the record?
    Catrinamonblue Resident: yes thank you :)
    Xirana Oximoxi: ok:) sorry..I was not sure if we have met before! nice to meet you! :)
    Catrinamonblue Resident: nice to meet you too :) we may or may not have met yet, there are so many people around here :)
    Catrinamonblue Resident: I can't keep track of who i've met or not met :)
    Xirana Oximoxi: yes! I know the ones I met oft...but not everyone
    Xirana Oximoxi: would you like to talk about a special topic...any subject?....the subject for this week I see it is 'Filling up'
    Catrinamonblue Resident: I'm up for any topic you might like :)
    Xirana Oximoxi: well.... I am not English speaker...and I must recognise that I don't get the exact meaning of this topic...if it has one 'exact' meaning:)
    Xirana Oximoxi: maybe it means....a kind of 'turning page' in life...
    Catrinamonblue Resident: I think they were talking about dropping and that after you drop you fill? My though was like breathe out breathe in
    Xirana Oximoxi: yes.... waves of life....
    Catrinamonblue Resident: yes :)
    Xirana Oximoxi: :)
    Xirana Oximoxi: I was thinking about the 'drop' matter.... do you feel the need to drop things in your life?... and if so, how do you know the best way to fill up the emptyness?
    Xirana Oximoxi: to drop...can be understood the same way as 'turning page?
    Catrinamonblue Resident: I'm new to the concept of dropping. So it's hard to answer :)
    Xirana Oximoxi: probably there are not only one answer....
    Xirana Oximoxi: do you like to practice meditation?
    Catrinamonblue Resident: I have been trying but my mind is a busy thing darting around
    Catrinamonblue Resident: It doesn't like to be still,
    Xirana Oximoxi: mine too....maybe people that practices it is more able to 'drop' thoughts and to keep mind more still....
    Catrinamonblue Resident: I think I'm afraid to let my mind be still
    Catrinamonblue Resident: then I would have to look at myself
    Xirana Oximoxi: but loooking at oneself can be good...if you get the way to do it quietly...
    Xirana Oximoxi: hello Zon...
    Catrinamonblue Resident: hello Zon
    Zon Kwan: heya
    Xirana Oximoxi: we are talking about 'dropping' and filling up'
    Zon Kwan: hm what does that mean ?
    Xirana Oximoxi: trying to get the meaning of it:)
    Xirana Oximoxi: it's the topic of this week....
    Zon Kwan: okie
    Xirana Oximoxi: maybe it can be understood as a way to 'stop' , to calm for a while..
    Xirana Oximoxi: I send a notecard to you
    Zon Kwan: yhx :)
    Xirana Oximoxi: yw:)
    Zon Kwan: yes..similar thoughts
    Xirana Oximoxi: your comment makes me think that sometimes we are the most 'hard' judges of ourselves.... Catrina :)...
    Zon Kwan: rl calls, waves
    Catrinamonblue Resident: being still... means facing the past too... sometimes the past haunts you..... keeping busy keeps it at bay.......
    Xirana Oximoxi: :)
    Xirana Oximoxi: bye bye Zon
    Catrinamonblue Resident: bye Zon
    Xirana Oximoxi: yes... I usually try to see the present and the future... but, sure, some things of the past are part of us or follow us
    Xirana Oximoxi: have also shaped us in some ways
    Catrinamonblue Resident: yes it shapes us
    Xirana Oximoxi: hello Zen!
    Catrinamonblue Resident: Hello Zen
    Zen Arado: Hi Xirana, Cat :)
    Xirana Oximoxi: do you think it is possible to 'start' again....from 0 ?
    Zen Arado: ty Xiri
    Zen Arado: just removng my Kindle from charging
    Xirana Oximoxi: sometimes I hear some people do... rarely....leaving job and everything to change life absolutly
    Zen Arado: like going to live in a new country?
    Xirana Oximoxi: I have a kindle too .. a brand new tool for me... now I need time to read:))
    Catrinamonblue Resident: I think you can try but the past will always be something with you, maybe if you make peace with the past you can leave it all behind and start over
    Xirana Oximoxi: yes...that can be a way of doing it
    Zen Arado: agree Cat
    Zen Arado: we drag the past around with us instead of letting go of it
    Xirana Oximoxi: me too.... but I suppose if it is related to persons it may not be easy...
    Zen Arado: so silly cos we can't do anything about it now
    Xirana Oximoxi: yes Zen... but we create links.... sometimes not easy to forget
    Xirana Oximoxi: or to 'drop'
    Xirana Oximoxi: to cut, maybe a better verb
    Zen Arado: maybe if we think that it is harder
    Zen Arado: should be comma after 'that'
    Zen Arado: :)
    Xirana Oximoxi: :) ty! :)
    Zen Arado: funny I am thinking too much about the past lately because I have to write stories
    Catrinamonblue Resident: my past is haunting me too :)
    Zen Arado: sorry i talked through bell
    Xirana Oximoxi: oh! and that implies looking into the past?
    Xirana Oximoxi: np:)
    Zen Arado: hmm yes for me
    Xirana Oximoxi: are we going to have a session about 'Zen's stories'?? :)
    Catrinamonblue Resident: :)
    Xirana Oximoxi: I mean a 'reading' session:)
    Zen Arado: I'm hopeless at creating new stories
    Xirana Oximoxi: in what sense?
    Zen Arado: I can't think of anything
    Xirana Oximoxi: aha... I understand:)) the panic of the writer in front of a white page:))
    Zen Arado: yeh
    Xirana Oximoxi: also of a painter
    Zen Arado: true
    Xirana Oximoxi: well... maybe looking for a subject and exploring can bring ideas...
    Xirana Oximoxi: like in a conversation too...
    Zen Arado: I have learned too many things that have to be in a story now
    Xirana Oximoxi: hehe
    Zen Arado: makes it more difficult
    Xirana Oximoxi: then forget half of it....:)
    Zen Arado: some writers just start writing and it develops
    Zen Arado: but what if it doesn't?
    Zen Arado: then I have to use the past
    Xirana Oximoxi: yes:) ... and if it does not... hmmmm (thinking...)...not easy then
    Catrinamonblue Resident: set it aside and meditate :)
    Zen Arado: yes Cat
    Zen Arado: but what if you have an assignment due in a week or two?
    Xirana Oximoxi: all writers use their life in some way....experiences, readings....
    Zen Arado: my RL is pretty boring atm
    Xirana Oximoxi: Zen is doing a 'Writing course' Cat :)
    Catrinamonblue Resident: trade you then mine is NOT boring
    Zen Arado: not gathering many experiences
    Zen Arado: I'll have to write about SL
