    stevenaia Michinaga: we have "Scribes" who summarize every 12 meetings and post that
    Sylectra Darwin: Stillness, an effort to set aside the worries of the day for just a short time.
    Sylectra Darwin: We listen to the breath.
    Samsara Silverstar: ok

    Corvuscorva Nightfire grins. I've followed Steve around a little, too.
    stevenaia Michinaga: my favorite stalker
    Corvuscorva Nightfire makes stalky faces at Steve.
    Sylectra Darwin: As a matter of fact, I am here because of Steve, too.
    stevenaia Michinaga: It's those bread crumbs I leave in my wake that you can't resist
    Corvuscorva Nightfire: Steve is such a good recruiter.
    stevenaia Michinaga: I didn't introduce you to PaB, did I Corvi?

    Susi Alcott: need to relog
    stevenaia Michinaga: I met her floating round in my SL youth, how can I resist and Energy and Love tag
    Sylectra Darwin: That is a great tag.
    stevenaia Michinaga: it's actually less structured than this group, and just as mellow considering they are from Buffalo
    stevenaia Michinaga: hello Susi, welcome back
    Susi Alcott: ty
    Sylectra Darwin: wb Susi
    stevenaia Michinaga: I have an annoying chest cold this week... reaching for my bourbon... I mean medicine
    Sylectra Darwin: They are all from Buffalo? That is interesting.
    Corvuscorva Nightfire snorts.
    Sylectra Darwin: Sorry to hear that, Stevie. my Nos has a nasty cold too.
    stevenaia Michinaga: tell him the cure is closer than her think
    Sylectra Darwin: I am okay though work is very hard right now. Last two days I have worked more than 10 hours at a stretch with no lunch break.
    Corvuscorva Nightfire: ok
    stevenaia Michinaga: wow, hoping you enjoy it, or at least get paid for the extra work
    stevenaia Michinaga: Pila suggested Yin Cho and Gan Mao Ling
    Corvuscorva Nightfire: for?
    stevenaia Michinaga: I may be seeing what is available her
    stevenaia Michinaga: my cold
    Corvuscorva Nightfire: oh!!
    Corvuscorva Nightfire: they're herbs?
    stevenaia Michinaga: assumes so
    Corvuscorva Nightfire: you ought to be able to find a Chinese herbalist there.
    Corvuscorva Nightfire: in my area, I would check with massage folks and acupuncturists.
    stevenaia Michinaga: there is one in town
    Corvuscorva Nightfire nods, in your area one would expect at least one.
    stevenaia Michinaga: very gifted with Chinese medicine, I am told
    Sylectra Darwin: for colds? Emergen-C is great.
    Corvuscorva Nightfire grins..that's what I use, too.
    Corvuscorva Nightfire: zinc.
    Corvuscorva Nightfire: but my partner goes to an acupuncturist who does traditional Chinese medicine.
    Sylectra Darwin: I think a lot of Chinese medicine.
    Corvuscorva Nightfire: It seems to work for her.
    Sylectra Darwin: I had a vet once that used Chinese herbal therapy on my dog who had bone cancer. It helped him feel better for a while.
    Corvuscorva Nightfire nods, thoughtfully.
    Sylectra Darwin: those mushrooms are amazing.
    Corvuscorva Nightfire: the herbalist's mushrooms?
    Corvuscorva Nightfire looks around for mushrooms in the building.
    stevenaia Michinaga: Not sure you are using those for a cure Sylectra
    Sylectra Darwin: It was so long ago, I can't remember what they were, but they sure worked.
    Corvuscorva Nightfire: These aren't "special" mushrooms you're talking about, Syl?
    Corvuscorva Nightfire's mouth twitches in a smile.
    Corvuscorva Nightfire: herbalists mushrooms?
    Sylectra Darwin: hehe
    Sylectra Darwin: no they were some kind of medicinal mushrooms from China.
    Corvuscorva Nightfire: I see...they worked to slow the problem, ease the pain, or...?
    Sylectra Darwin: I think they gave him more vitality, so that his remaining months were better.
    Sylectra Darwin: His fur got shiny and he was more energetic. I didn't need to give him pain pills for a while.
    Sylectra Darwin: So anyway, even though it didn't save him, I think Chinese herbals are great.
    Corvuscorva Nightfire nods. What I LIKE the most about Chinese medicine is its emphasis on health, as opposed to curing sickness.
    Sylectra Darwin: yes! me too.
    Sylectra Darwin: support of the total person.

    Susi Alcott gave me an image called 'medicine ' flower025.

    Corvuscorva Nightfire nods.
    Sylectra Darwin: thank you Susi. what is that a picture of?
    Corvuscorva Nightfire: it looks like a magnolia flower on magnolia leaves!
    Sylectra Darwin: what is it, Susi?
    Corvuscorva Nightfire: a gardenia?
    Corvuscorva Nightfire: I see.
    stevenaia Michinaga: yes
    stevenaia Michinaga: amazed you guys knew that
    Corvuscorva Nightfire: only cause Susi told me.
    stevenaia Michinaga: oh...grins
    Susi Alcott: the photo is of gardenia
    Sylectra Darwin: gardenia smells nice.
    Corvuscorva Nightfire: sure does..if amazingly strong.
    Sylectra Darwin: peaceful night.
    stevenaia Michinaga: yes, I think I will sleep now
    stevenaia Michinaga: night my friend
    Sylectra Darwin: I was walking in the snow tonight...very lovely

    stevenaia Michinaga: thank you for the flower Susi
    Susi Alcott: gardenia is also known quite much as the special medicine flower
    Susi Alcott: with many ways and to many problems
    Sylectra Darwin: Well that is very interesting. I used to know of some medicinal flowers...studied aromatherapy and herbals...but have forgotten so much.
    Susi Alcott: anything can be remembered again when it's urgent
    Corvuscorva Nightfire: thank you again, Susi.
    Corvuscorva Nightfire: it's time for me to go.
    Susi Alcott: it's good to remember also that most of the medicine's heals only the symptoms
    Susi Alcott: _/!\_:

    Corvuscorva Nightfire: night, Susi, Syl.
