    Catrinamonblue Resident: Evening Cal :)
    Calvino Rabeni: Hi Cat :)
    Calvino Rabeni: What's new (ish) ?
    Catrinamonblue Resident: happiness, joy, love, more joy ;)
    Calvino Rabeni: wow, that sounds good !
    Catrinamonblue Resident: tis very :)
    Calvino Rabeni: fate has smiled on you
    Catrinamonblue Resident: found my soul mate :) know that sounds rather pretentious but it's the only way I can explain it
    Catrinamonblue Resident: we have only known each other a very short time and yet we both feel as if we have known each other all our lives and beyond, like we are old friends meeting up again
    Calvino Rabeni: yes, i was thinking of saying something pretty much like that
    Catrinamonblue Resident: much joy in finding each other
    Catrinamonblue Resident: smiles
    Catrinamonblue Resident: and how are things for you?
    Calvino Rabeni: I' can't match the positiveness of your experience
    Calvino Rabeni: Sort of the opposite of what you describe ... I'm taking it slow, giving self permission for a fair amount of distraction where needed
    Calvino Rabeni: but luckily there are some good resources for that, which I haven't tried before
    Calvino Rabeni: secretly, I'd like a magic rabbit to give me a good humor about it all without actually changing anything :)
    Catrinamonblue Resident: Can understand, before this love entered my life there was much grief and pain, the loss of a relationship I thought was forever... and now I find that I needed to go through that pain to find myself, that somehow life was meant to be this way
    Calvino Rabeni: you don't know of any magic rabbits, I suppose?
    Catrinamonblue Resident: no magic rabits but have learned that time does heal... eventually
    Calvino Rabeni: that sounds like a great relief
    Santoshima Resident: 's current display-name is "San".
    Catrinamonblue Resident: at the time I ws going through that pain I did not think there could be any more love for me, I thought I would be alone the rest of my life, was actually settling into the idea of it when this person stepped into my life

    Calvino Rabeni: good timing ... that wasn't a way to leave things
    Catrinamonblue Resident: there is still much to be settled from the old relationship, threads yet to be woven in, but I feel now that there is something forward... hard to explain but like I have come full circle with myself....
    Calvino Rabeni: that would be good, to see oneself from all sides
    Catrinamonblue Resident: :)
    Catrinamonblue Resident: have been to the lowest point and the highest point and all point in between.... Life has been there always ready and waiting for me.... in the moment when needed
    Calvino Rabeni: I think I assume that it always is, but if it doesn't seem to be, then something is off with my vision
    Catrinamonblue Resident: hind sight is 20 20 :) always we can see backwards and only guess forwads
    Calvino Rabeni: i think my rear view mirro is fogged
    Calvino Rabeni: Hi Aphrodite
    Catrinamonblue Resident: lol :)
    Aphrodite Macbain: 's current display-name is "Aph".
    Aphrodite Macbain: hi all
    Catrinamonblue Resident: hello Aph
    Calvino Rabeni: I learned something about your namesake, Aph
    Aphrodite Macbain: I hope everyone's well
    Aphrodite Macbain: aphrodite or aMacbain?
    Calvino Rabeni: the first
    Aphrodite Macbain: there's lot to know about her!
    Aphrodite Macbain: what did you find?
    Calvino Rabeni: the home of the goddess Aphrodite was the island of Cyprus, which I didn't know where it was, so I looked it up, and found that it would probably be a good tourist destination
    Calvino Rabeni: and it's sort of just offshore from places where you wouldn't want to go, like Syria
    Aphrodite Macbain: It would! I think there were different types of Aphrodite
    Aphrodite Macbain: Aphrodite Cupressus was the more um honorable one
    Calvino Rabeni: I didn't know that ... like different Dr. Who's?
    Aphrodite Macbain: lol
    Aphrodite Macbain: maybe
    Aphrodite Macbain: The greeks wanted to distiguish between different types of love
    Aphrodite Macbain: the carnal and the celestia;
    Aphrodite Macbain: celestial
    Calvino Rabeni: There are some quite good storytelling podcasts .. one sometimes does classics
    Calvino Rabeni: those Greeks :)
    Aphrodite Macbain: oh? which one?
    Aphrodite Macbain: :P
    Calvino Rabeni: let's see ..

    Aphrodite Macbain: are u decorating your house for Halloween?
    Catrinamonblue Resident: oh yes... and learning that life happens just as it should
    Catrinamonblue Resident: no.. will be spending Halloween with someone else this year ;)
    Aphrodite Macbain: I give it a nudge from time to time
    Catrinamonblue Resident: nudging only causes pain
    Aphrodite Macbain: a goblin?
    Santoshima Resident: 's current display-name is "San".
    Aphrodite Macbain: How's the unpacking going Cal?
    Catrinamonblue Resident: I'll be staying at someone else's house over Halloween so no need to decorate if I'm not going to be here
    Aphrodite Macbain: Great

    Aphrodite Macbain: Yes- they're also good for sittling on a stationary bicycle
    Calvino Rabeni: but somehow I don't take the time to do it at home
    Calvino Rabeni: nods
    Calvino Rabeni: yes that sounds like what would make the bike or treadmill a different experience
    Aphrodite Macbain: LOng walks are good withan ipod
