    Hana and I discuss our upcoming event at our geisha school.

    Hana Hendrassen: hi Adams :)
    Gaya Ethaniel: Hello Adams :)
    Adams Rubble: Good Morning Hana and Gaya :)
    Adams Rubble: what's happening?
    Gaya Ethaniel: I was admiring Hana's outfit. :)
    Hana Hendrassen smiles
    Adams Rubble: It's very nice
    Hana Hendrassen: I'm working on something for the okiya
    Hana Hendrassen: thank you :)
    Gaya Ethaniel smiles.
    Gaya Ethaniel: That is also very nice... is that what you are making for the okiya?
    Adams Rubble: what is the okiya?
    Hana Hendrassen: the geisha school we are in. Blue Lotus
    Adams Rubble: ah
    Hana Hendrassen: this is the hairstyle and ornaments we'll be using for our spring dances
    Adams Rubble nods
    Gaya Ethaniel: In Japan, there is a spring dance that is performed each year by geisha traditionally. We are trying to recreate that in SL.
    Hana Hendrassen: yes
    Adams Rubble: neat
    Hana Hendrassen: it's called the Miyako Odori... dance of the capital
    Gaya Ethaniel: The capital being Kyoto before it was moved to Edo (Tokyo)
    Hana Hendrassen: yep yep
    Adams Rubble: :)
    Hana Hendrassen: it was when they'd just moved the capital so they opened the dances to preserve the culture of the old one
    Gaya Ethaniel: To keep the mass happy/happier :)
    Hana Hendrassen giggles
    Adams Rubble: :)
    Hana Hendrassen: Gaya went to that class I think... I missed it ^_^;
    Gaya Ethaniel: I missed it too...
    Gaya Ethaniel: It is hard as most of them are in US
    Hana Hendrassen: ah ok

    I gingerly approach Adams about seeing her awake so early...

    Gaya Ethaniel: It's very early/late for you Adams right?
    Adams Rubble: Yes, 4:19 am
    Adams Rubble: very early for Hana too
    Gaya Ethaniel: No worries, she had too much cola.
    Adams Rubble: or late
    Adams Rubble: hehe
    Gaya Ethaniel: What's keeping you awake?
    Adams Rubble: Actually waking me up...not sure yet
    Hana Hendrassen smiles "Yep, it was the coke"
    Adams Rubble: I was in a very calm period
    Hana Hendrassen: insomniacs unite!
    Adams Rubble: Now something seems to be stirring again
    Gaya Ethaniel smiles.
    Gaya Ethaniel: ah... I see.
    Adams Rubble: It may be a reaction again like last fall
    Adams Rubble doesn;t want to do that again
    Hana Hendrassen: uh oh
    Gaya Ethaniel: Reaction?
    Adams Rubble: Yes
    Gaya Ethaniel: Against...?
    Adams Rubble: I have found that by thinking of APAPB in the context of timelessness...
    Adams Rubble: suggested by Stim
    Adams Rubble: I can now drop my selves/identities rather readily
    Adams Rubble: a few nights ago I had a dream
    Adams Rubble: with awful imagery
    Adams Rubble: that seemed to be a battle between the part of me that wants to connect
    Adams Rubble: and the part of me that is threatened by it
    Adams Rubble: It seemed to pass and that it would be short lived
    Adams Rubble: but here I am up again
    Gaya Ethaniel nods...
    Adams Rubble: so maybe there will be more
    Gaya Ethaniel: Perhaps yes...
    Hana Hendrassen: I apologize, but I have to go.... need to finish this and I can't build here :(
    Adams Rubble: I'd rather not do that again
    Adams Rubble: bye Hana
    Gaya Ethaniel: See you later Hana.
    Hana Hendrassen: have a good morning both of you :)
    Adams Rubble: nice seeing you
    Gaya Ethaniel: Thanks you too :)
    Hana Hendrassen: nice to see you too
    Gaya Ethaniel: Guess sit tight and see what happens.
    Adams Rubble hoping I didn't scare Hana away
    Gaya Ethaniel: Nah... she has to finish that for the event soon.
    Adams Rubble: I also have some projects to finish
    Adams Rubble: I wonder to myself whether that is mixing up with the other
    Gaya Ethaniel: The other?
    Adams Rubble: that was part of last fall too
    Adams Rubble: with the parts of me out of sync
    Adams Rubble: Down Selves!
    Adams Rubble: hehe
    Gaya Ethaniel: Doesn't sound much fun somehow >.<
    Adams Rubble reaches down and tries to stuff the selves back into the sack
    Adams Rubble: hehe
    Gaya Ethaniel smiles.
    Gaya Ethaniel: When you get busy, this happens you think?
    Gaya Ethaniel: Under stress?
    Adams Rubble: It may be..I am still a novice at all this :)
    Adams Rubble: I had a very engaged period for a little more than a week
    Adams Rubble: I opened up like I did last summer
    Adams Rubble: So yes, it may be that the stress is trying to close things back down
    Adams Rubble: or the selves in reaction to the stress
    Adams Rubble: or something like that
    Gaya Ethaniel nods... possible yes.
    Gaya Ethaniel: Stress can be intrusive to one's practice.
    Gaya Ethaniel shrugs... sometimes it's just a fact of life.
    Adams Rubble: yep
    Adams Rubble gets out the old "Novice" tag
    Adams Rubble: maybe I just need to get back to basics
    Gaya Ethaniel: mm... I'm not sure if it's to do with basics or... non-basics.
    Gaya Ethaniel: I'm also a beginner myself in this.
    Adams Rubble: It is so easy to stray
    Adams Rubble: One finds something and it is so hard to just hold on to that
    Adams Rubble: It was a beautiful few days while it lasted
    Gaya Ethaniel smiles.
    Adams Rubble: If you will excuse me Gaya, I think I am going to try to go back to sleep
    Adams Rubble: thank you for listening
    Gaya Ethaniel: Good rest Adams. Thanks for coming.
    Gaya Ethaniel: Take care.
    Adams Rubble: Have a good day
    Adams Rubble: you too :)
    Gaya Ethaniel: Thanks :)
    Adams Rubble: bye for now :)
