    Adams Rubble: I put the images on the bottom and then in edit mode, I click on the bottom picture, copy it and then go to the place I want it and paste
    Eden Haiku: in this red Chinese dress
    Eden Haiku: Will try that Adams, than tks!
    Riddle Sideways: that is the method that worked last week, but editing the size of the pic then did not work
    Adams Rubble: no, things do not work as they used to
    Eden Haiku: Updates are killing the joy!
    Riddle Sideways: Change and Updates are constant
    Adams Rubble: like death and taxes
    Adams Rubble giggles
    Riddle Sideways: ha, yes those were the ones was trying to remember
    Riddle Sideways: nothing changes except change itself and Updates
    Adams Rubble: last night I was awake in the middle of the nightagain and I decided to watch my thoughts. And I kept on having thoughts and kept forgetting to watch them
    Eden Haiku: Change and updates, impermanence...
    Riddle Sideways: cycling
    Eden Haiku: Getting sucked in your thoughts...
    Eden Haiku: The way we usually live our lives, entrapped in our thoughts
    Riddle Sideways: that small court reporter person over to the side recording the thoughts
    Eden Haiku: Thanks Adams, the posting work by copying and pasting. I have yet to find the correct size though.
    Riddle Sideways: yes, the re-sizing did not work last week
    Adams Rubble: no, can't resize that way
    Riddle Sideways: the upload an image thingie works when not in edit mode. then in edit mode the insert image tabs never find their own images

    Eden Haiku: Couldn't go back to sleep, so...
    Eden Haiku: Have a good auto-hynosis trick for that
    Adams Rubble: It sounds like you made better use of your wakefulness than did I, Eden

    Eden Haiku: It brings you back to your body
    Eden Haiku: You notice all sorts of tiny sounds beyond your hearing: far away birds
    Eden Haiku: birds...
    Riddle Sideways: a leaky shower head
    Eden Haiku: and when you start seeing dream-like things, you notice you start falling asleep
    Riddle Sideways: getting to that age that it is the body feeling that is waking one up

    Adams Rubble: my body is saying "leave me alone"
    Riddle Sideways: that too
    Eden Haiku: Decided to finish a novel I have been reading in the last few days.
    Adams Rubble: :)
    Eden Haiku: Someone creates an avatar in Second Life but it's like in a sci-fi universe
    Riddle Sideways: yes, a separate reality
    Eden Haiku: All about youthful appearance and feminine beauty standards
    Adams Rubble: :)
    Eden Haiku: But the novel is utterly cold.
    Riddle Sideways: oooo
    Eden Haiku: No feelings except a general dislike of human contact

    Riddle Sideways: what? went off to find a link and y'all are drinking already?
    Eden Haiku: Last week, we had lunch with a younger woman we hadn't seen in 12 years. Last time was at the baptism of her son and then they left for Bristish Columbia., It was amazing: we started the conversation kind of where we left it. Connection was still there, strong and happy!
    Adams Rubble: :)
    Riddle Sideways: ㋡ great when that happens
    Adams Rubble: yes

    Riddle Sideways: like day-night
    Adams Rubble: nice Eden
    Eden Haiku: No, no, Adams you're not: we are joking and drinking fresh water and  decaffeonated coffee in my case :)
    Riddle Sideways: coffee finished, going on to banana here
    Eden Haiku: Last drop of coffee has turn cold as I had forgotten it, typing away...
    Eden Haiku: I used to love bananas...
    Riddle Sideways: ? not now?
    Eden Haiku: My companion doesn't like them, so I rarely eat them now
    Eden Haiku: Back to Adam's insomnia. What did you notice, enmeshed in your thoughts?
    Riddle Sideways: thought it was maybe shopping list dropage
    Riddle Sideways: was it noticing the you were not noticing?
    Adams Rubble: what did Adams notice?
    Adams Rubble: Adams noticed that Adams had lost the ability to watch thoughts
    Eden Haiku: It became that Riddle. I used to froze them (to use in smoothies) and then forgot them in the freezer and ended up not buying bananas anymore.
    Adams Rubble: the thoughts came and instead of letting go Adams followed them and swam in them and frollicked in them and then remembered to watch thoughts
    Riddle Sideways: [07:08] Adams Rubble: last night I was awake in the middle fo the night again and I decided to watch my thoughts. And I kept on having thoughts and kept forgetting to watch them
    Adams Rubble: then another thought came and Adams got on, etc. etc
    Eden Haiku: is having deep thoughts about bananas, shopping list and so on...,
    Riddle Sideways: so should have been: watched that you were not watching
    Adams Rubble: ohhh, yes
    Eden Haiku: Being
    Eden Haiku: Appearance
    Adams Rubble: Isn't it amazing that I can look so fresh after being awake for so long?
    Adams Rubble: :)
    Riddle Sideways: yes, there are foods/meals had every week and then one day the last of (something) is used and hands are too messy to write it on the shopping list
    Riddle Sideways: and a year goes by without eating that
    Eden Haiku: updates of daily life :)

    Eden Haiku: stop
    Adams Rubble: whew
    Eden Haiku: smiles
    Riddle Sideways: the Human/Social connection/touching mentions reminded of a "The Moth" story. However, their site is near impossible to search
    Adams Rubble: last night when I was awake I thought I should write a short story but nothing was happened on that score
    Eden Haiku: The Moth? What is is about Riddle?
    Riddle Sideways: thinks it might be a time sink hole to tell Eden about The Moth
    Eden Haiku: Oh, nice Adams, maybe next time the short story will write itself!
    Riddle Sideways: it is a radio show of people telling the most amazing true stories about their lives
    Eden Haiku: Ok, I understand Riddle. Will search for it in the Dark Web :)
    Eden Haiku: Oh, that's a nice summary, thanks!
    Adams Rubble: don't fly too close to the flame
    Eden Haiku: What are your most amazing true stories?
    Riddle Sideways: they have story nights at events around the country/world and people get up and tell true stories
    Eden Haiku: WOW!
    Riddle Sideways: beware...! you would get hooked
    Riddle Sideways: addicted
    Eden Haiku: Lovely, never heard about it before,,,
    Eden Haiku: If it's a radio show that is podcasted I could listen as I walk :)
    Riddle Sideways: yes, hours and hours of podcasts available
    Riddle Sideways: sometimes in the middle of the night, can hear The Moth podcasts coming from a pillow speaker nearby
    Eden Haiku: haha!
    Riddle Sideways: did you know? in the still of the night you can hear somebody else's pillow speaker
    Riddle Sideways: and just have to hear the rest of that story
    Eden Haiku: Reminding me I should by bluetooth earpods. Much less damaging because you can leave your device outside of the bedroom, less exposure to radiations

    Eden Haiku: Thanks Riddle, I just found it :)
    Riddle Sideways: oh dear, hope not to be blamed

    Eden Haiku: Ah good to know. 30 meters must be a safe distance :)
    Riddle Sideways: Bluetooth is a limited range
    Eden Haiku: What did you play Riddle?
    Riddle Sideways: it was a wedding and they requested a few Country songs we had to learn

    Riddle Sideways: but, need to please the paying public
