    Riddle Sideways: or an Arizona thang
    Bleu Oleander: yes phoenix is near and dear :)
    Eden Haiku: And parched by this terrible heatwave it seems. California is also having a lot of forest fires ?

    Eden Haiku: So sad... all these trees and homes destroted...
    Eden Haiku: *destroyed
    Riddle Sideways: so far no fires near us
    Bleu Oleander: indeed
    Bleu Oleander: that's good!
    Eden Haiku: Phew...
    Eden Haiku: Climate change is very real, more and more real every day...
    Bleu Oleander: yes
    Riddle Sideways: thought "They" said it was not real
    Eden Haiku: I wonder if politicians will take any relevant decisions in Paris meeting next fall...

    Riddle Sideways: phew
    Eden Haiku: AAaaaah....
    Eden Haiku: Love the sound of the fountain and the coolness of the water...
    Bleu Oleander: yes me too
    Eden Haiku: SHShould come experiment with cushions outside a session though :)
    Bleu Oleander: in the gardens?
    Riddle Sideways: :) your builder mind is over working
    Eden Haiku: Do I need to stand up to reset the pose?
    Bleu Oleander: no
    Bleu Oleander: just click on the cushion
    Bleu Oleander: should open a dialogue box
    Bleu Oleander: choose anim
    Bleu Oleander: and click on one
    Eden Haiku: You are right Riddle :) And also my vanity. I look very stiff the way I'm seating :)
    Bleu Oleander: click on the cushion
    Bleu Oleander: to change poses
    Eden Haiku: AH1
    Bleu Oleander: the corner cushions have the laying down pose
    Riddle Sideways: we have an outside stream and fountain that sounds like this
    Bleu Oleander: you can also adjust each pose
    Riddle Sideways: when it is running
    Riddle Sideways: has been off for 2 years
    Bleu Oleander: ah
    Bleu Oleander: so you can come here :)
    Riddle Sideways: yep
    Eden Haiku: :)
    Riddle Sideways: nice relaxing sound
    Bleu Oleander: San has some nice sounds on the upper level
    Riddle Sideways: noise that is quieting
    Bleu Oleander: I sleep better in NYC
    Bleu Oleander: lol
    Bleu Oleander: took me a long time to get used to the quiet in AZ
    Eden Haiku: Yes, kind of sonic driving for our flow of thoughts :)
    Bleu Oleander: somehow the noise of the city is comforting
    Eden Haiku: ? Really Bleu ?
    Bleu Oleander: yes, funny huh?
    Riddle Sideways: sirens? car honking? trains?
    Riddle Sideways: fnny
    Eden Haiku: I know you can adjust your mindset so it becomes comforting. I guess this is what you do? I remember doing that when I was living in New York city.
    Bleu Oleander: yes its a cacophony (sp?) of city sounds that lulls me to sleep lol
    Bleu Oleander: well I was born there so an early imprint perhaps?
    Eden Haiku: Ah! your ears were trained early Bleu :)
    Bleu Oleander: yes :)
    Eden Haiku: You are a musician I think Riddle? Can you hear city sounds like lulling?
    Riddle Sideways: can think of it that way
    Riddle Sideways: usually don't though
    Riddle Sideways: was in S.F. last weekend
    Riddle Sideways: quiet street at night
    Riddle Sideways: at daybreak the sounds started
    Riddle Sideways: was nice
    Riddle Sideways: over the hour of sunrise
    Riddle Sideways: the city sounds awoke
    Riddle Sideways: and sun going down here
    Riddle Sideways: SL cycle is much quicker
    Eden Haiku: Closed my eyes during the pause and listened. The flowing fountain, the birds, the loud hum of the RL fan, the wind of the fan on my face and arms and some owl in the background. Quite a music!
    Riddle Sideways: ah yes
    Bleu Oleander: lovely
    Riddle Sideways: why did one wall light up?
    Eden Haiku: It's getting dark...
    Bleu Oleander: moon light?
    Bleu Oleander: beautiful lighting right now with my windlight settings
    Eden Haiku: days of the dark moon though
    Bleu Oleander: do you know how to change your windlights?
    Bleu Oleander: under environment editor?
    Bleu Oleander: so many lovely lightings to view with
    Eden Haiku: No, will try. What is a windlight?
    Bleu Oleander: under world, environment
    Bleu Oleander: what viewer?
    Bleu Oleander: windlight is the filter you view sl with
    Bleu Oleander: the standard ones are day, night etc.
    Bleu Oleander: but artists have made wonderful ones
    Bleu Oleander: and you can make your own
    Eden Haiku: I have presettings for water, sky... Is that it?
    Bleu Oleander: sky
    Bleu Oleander: you can change the water too though
    Eden Haiku: oh, Riddle clicked himself out of Sl :)
    Eden Haiku: Ok I'm in sky presets
    Bleu Oleander: but if you just click the environment settings you should see some choices under either day cycle or fixed sky
    Bleu Oleander: back up to just the environment window
    Bleu Oleander: under sky presets you can create and tweek your own
    Bleu Oleander: do you have a choice to "cutomize"
    Bleu Oleander: should be a drop down menu
    Eden Haiku: Yes, I have been playing with it. We are in a sea of turqyoise color now :)
    Bleu Oleander: lol
    Bleu Oleander: are you using firestorm?
    Bleu Oleander: wb Riddle
    Eden Haiku: Yes Firestorm
    Eden Haiku: Wb Riddle :)
    Bleu Oleander: ok so under the first environment window
    Riddle Sideways: very rude computer crash
    Bleu Oleander: click on cutomize my environment
    Bleu Oleander: and then on "day cycle" and then (ss) atmospheric day
    Riddle Sideways: water sound kept gong
    Bleu Oleander: it follows the sl day/night cycle
    Bleu Oleander: and is usually a beautiful setting
    Bleu Oleander: under fixed sky there are many windlights to choose from
    Eden Haiku: OH! I'm seeing the stars!
    Bleu Oleander: scroll down to Bryn Oh's windlights ... very fun!
    Bleu Oleander: I love Bryn Oh's "grey dust"
    Bleu Oleander: beautiful moody light
    Riddle Sideways: ha, Phototools - Hufflepuff is too ...
    Bleu Oleander: fun to play with
    Riddle Sideways: yes, more fun to have
    Bleu Oleander: wow yes
    Eden Haiku: So many SL settings to discover :)
    Bleu Oleander: yes great for photos!
    Bleu Oleander: so you have no excuse for not making gorgeous photos lol
    Riddle Sideways: easy for you to say :)
    Bleu Oleander: haha!
    Eden Haiku: I just literally ¨space out¨ and lost touch with pavilion, sounds, chat... Was somewhere nearby I think. Cameras...
    Bleu Oleander: yes happens!
    Bleu Oleander: well I must get to work
    Bleu Oleander: lovely to spend time and play with light

    Eden Haiku: Sorry to hear about the hard computer crash Riddle :(
    Riddle Sideways: sometimes life and second life is nice and stabl
    Riddle Sideways: e
    Eden Haiku: My SL settinhs are in French and I couldn,t find anything like "eindlights" ;(
    Eden Haiku: Windlights
    Riddle Sideways: :)
    Eden Haiku: Yes both RL and Sl have their ups and downs :)
    Riddle Sideways: not a hard crash this time, just a need to update phase
    Eden Haiku: I'm much more experimented in RL than in SL though :) But I would like to have the ability to teleport in RL too :)
    Riddle Sideways: and fly
    Eden Haiku: Computers are part of your work aren't they Riddle. So you must be an expert.
    Eden Haiku: And fly indeed ;)
    Riddle Sideways: part of world yes, expert ??
    Riddle Sideways: not sure about expert
    Eden Haiku: Well, I guess it,s always new things to master, updates and such...
    Riddle Sideways: always learning
    Riddle Sideways: however, have yet to learn much of SL
    Eden Haiku: I resist to updates.It takes me the longest them to do them...
    Eden Haiku: Not a good idea I know...
    Riddle Sideways: the Lindens thought it was a good time to update the viewer in use.
    Eden Haiku: The guardian of no-change-please is very strong in my psyche ;)
    Eden Haiku: Firestorm is easier now, that,s true :)
    Riddle Sideways: the virus/security/etc. software thought it was not a good time to let data come into the house
    Eden Haiku: Oh?
    Riddle Sideways: ha, trying to sit quietly and a smoke alarm upstairs has decided it needs to have a 9v battery update
    Riddle Sideways: am starting to think some of this is out of control
    Eden Haiku: Sorry to hear that. RL is calling me also. Thak you so much Riidle.It was lovely being here with you and Bleu this morning. Have a great day!
    Riddle Sideways: and thank you
