    Eliza Madrigal: Hi Stephen
    Nymf Hathaway: Hello Stephen...yes Eliza that can be great as well :)
    Eliza Madrigal: Welcome to Play as Being :)
    Eliza Madrigal: Stephen, have you been here before?
    Eliza Madrigal: We record our sessions, and if you'd rather not be included in that I can edit you out.
    Eliza Madrigal: You are welcome to stay... take a seat?
    Nymf Hathaway: Rightclick on a pillow and choose sit :)
    Nymf Hathaway: ah :)
    Eliza Madrigal: :)
    Eliza Madrigal: Often happens.
    Nymf Hathaway: yes :)
    Eliza Madrigal: I was IMing with him also.... but ah well :) Suppose he needed more tights.... went shopping
    Nymf Hathaway: hahhahaha
    Eliza Madrigal: :)
    Eliza Madrigal: I took yesterday off from SL... was a good idea I think....
    Eliza Madrigal: am thinking of having "Silence Fridays"
    Nymf Hathaway: Oh I can so relate to that
    Nymf Hathaway: Since I returned it bothered me I spend as much time as I do already again :(
    Eliza Madrigal: You're getting your balance again.
    Nymf Hathaway: Time flies in here
    Eliza Madrigal: How long have you been back?
    Eliza Madrigal: YES!
    Nymf Hathaway: a week
    Eliza Madrigal: Ah...not too bad. Sometimes it is good to be a little more structured.
    Eliza Madrigal: I always intend to try to 'go with the flow' but when I see that isn't working organically, I step in!
    Eliza Madrigal: heheh
    Nymf Hathaway: yes and this new return should provide me some balance and structure
    Eliza Madrigal: :) I hope so
    Nymf Hathaway: working on it :) but great idea a friday off
    Eliza Madrigal: I learn from others. Eos mentioned that he and his family have "Analog Sundays"
    Nymf Hathaway: Sounds nice as well
    Eliza Madrigal nods
    Nymf Hathaway: I refused the digi bit for 7 months...it was heaven :)
    Eliza Madrigal: 7 months... wow..a relative lifetime :)
    Nymf Hathaway: yes :))
    Nymf Hathaway: Nature, books, music and great food... did a world of good
    Nymf Hathaway: Hi Q :)
    Eliza Madrigal: It sounds like you paid a great deal of attention during that time
    quaezar Agnomen: Hi Love
    Eliza Madrigal: Hi again Q
    Eliza Madrigal: WB
    quaezar Agnomen: Sure is troubled...
    quaezar Agnomen: tnx
    quaezar Agnomen: Sl client crashed
    Eliza Madrigal: Nymf was telling me about taking time offline and enjoying everything... food, nature, etc :)
    quaezar Agnomen: Indeed compare RL ..SL is nothing.. and people must watch out that not to much time is spend here between these bits and bytes
    Eliza Madrigal: I'm thinking that it is much like taking the pauses every 15 minutes...
    Nymf Hathaway: Balance ... so easily lost when you have a goodtime inworld :)
    Nymf Hathaway: yes simular :)
    Eliza Madrigal: that it is a good idea to pause every hour, every day, every week, every year...
    quaezar Agnomen: Agree Nymf...it is all about balance that you can accomplish being disiplined
    Eliza Madrigal nods
    Eliza Madrigal: And another way in which we can learn from each other :)
    quaezar Agnomen: :o)
    Nymf Hathaway: Agrees
    quaezar Agnomen: I learn each day..
    Eliza Madrigal: Nature seems to go in cycles, so...
    Nymf Hathaway: I think the rest is taking a pause as well :)
    Eliza Madrigal: :)
    quaezar Agnomen: Hello Sophia
    Nymf Hathaway: Hello Sophia :)
    Eliza Madrigal: Bye the time winter is over, you're very ready for it to be over.... then spring arrives and then we're ready for summer after a while...
    Eliza Madrigal: Hello Dazzling Sophia
    Eliza Madrigal: :)
    sophia Placebo: hello quaezar ,nymf eliza
    sophia Placebo: :)
    Eliza Madrigal: (although in saying that about winter, is not quite true for me... heheh)
    quaezar Agnomen: Nice flower :)
    sophia Placebo: ty :)
    quaezar Agnomen: you are welcome
    Eliza Madrigal: sophia, we were talking a bit this morning about balancing time, or balancing in time?
    sophia Placebo: from what angle?
    Eliza Madrigal: Well, I took yesterday off entirely and am thinking of making it a habit... SIlence Fridays
    Eliza Madrigal: so Nymf mentioned her extended break from SL...
    Eliza Madrigal: soaking up nature...enjoying food.... :) A purposeful time
    sophia Placebo: i see
    Eliza Madrigal: :) And the pauses we take are all about that too!
    Eliza Madrigal: :)
    Eliza Madrigal: Stopping to step out
    Nymf Hathaway: Its a form of renewing onceself
    Eliza Madrigal: MM, yes
    Eliza Madrigal: Replenishing
    Eliza Madrigal: So we can be a dazzling like a sophia flower...heheh :)
    Nymf Hathaway: :))
    Eliza Madrigal: I can't stay this morning. I have an appointment which will require many attentive pauses. I grabbed the log for Lia though
    sophia Placebo: it is amazing how bigger universe inside each of us me thinks , that we need to balance time to give a chance to explore other aspects of self and its relations
    Eliza Madrigal: sophia, yes!
    Eliza Madrigal: so many expansive rooms!
    Nymf Hathaway: Life has become full of possibilities the last few decades
    Nymf Hathaway: Depending on where you are located in rl
    Eliza Madrigal: yes... and so many things are accessible to 'everyone'
    quaezar Agnomen: I have RL duties...excuse me ladies...till next time and have a nice day! :)
    Eliza Madrigal: Bye for now quaezar
    sophia Placebo: bye
    quaezar Agnomen: Bye :)
    Eliza Madrigal: And getting to know other people seems the *most* interesting explorating
    Eliza Madrigal: *exploration
    sophia Placebo: nods
    Nymf Hathaway: Agrees
    Eliza Madrigal: I think that is why SL is so appealing. The visual contexts create a field so similar to "rl"
    sophia Placebo: self exploration is the most scary most avoided yet most rewarded
    Eliza Madrigal: and we step in and see each other from so many angles
    Eliza Madrigal nods
    sophia Placebo: true eliza
    Eliza Madrigal: I once read a story years ago... about all these people getting to 'heaven' and there being a ring of fire that each stepped into to reveal their 'true' self...
    sophia Placebo: re nymf : how geography affect posiibilities creation or existance?
    sophia Placebo: say more eliza
    Eliza Madrigal: hmm... and this is a shared geography! :)
    Eliza Madrigal: I was just extrapolating a bit sophia...
    Eliza Madrigal: that sometimes SL seems that way...
    Nymf Hathaway: Well I am born in a rich and war-free country... but I can imagine being born in Africa or palestine and I would not have the same possibilties
    Eliza Madrigal: we can be a flower, or a ball of energy....or a cloud
    Eliza Madrigal: :)
    Eliza Madrigal: Ah, yes Nymf.
    sophia Placebo: totally agree eliza
    Eliza Madrigal: Maybe the internet creates more and more wormholes... getting to places which seem out of touch/reach even now
    sophia Placebo: me thinks that possibilites never stop being out there
    Eliza Madrigal nods
    sophia Placebo: as long as you are all intented to keep creating some and discovering others
    Nymf Hathaway: Agrees fully but when you know the pyramid of Maslow you know that it will come to you in steps
    Eliza Madrigal: Optimism
    sophia Placebo: african poeple are looking to diffrent possibilites than other poeple on earth , as maybe my nighbor is looking for diffrent possibilties than i
    sophia Placebo: maybe you are right about maslow pyramid but cant there be another way
    Eliza Madrigal: I need to get going....
    Eliza Madrigal: so nice to sit with you guys this morning :)
    sophia Placebo: bye eliza
    Nymf Hathaway: Have a nice day Eliza :)
    Eliza Madrigal: Have a wonderful day!

    After beginning to discuss ways in which opportunity might truly be available to 'all' one day, and my having to exit, Nymf and sophia discuss a far more serious topic.

    Nymf Hathaway: Could you explain what you mean by Another way?
    sophia Placebo: another possibiltie to possibilites creation ?
    Nymf Hathaway: I agree with the fact possibilities are everywhere... thats the human brain all about; seaking solutions, possibilities etc
    Nymf Hathaway: But in the western world I see an upcomming amount of people being burnout...when you look at the why factor ... its all about having too much to do, and less time
    sophia Placebo: i see
    Nymf Hathaway: When you do not have to ensure food on the table (because you can buy it in the supermarket around the corner) and you do not have to worry about being safe (because of war) and much other factors of course.... than you have a lot of time on your hands to fill in with things you are interested in... it seems finding balance in such is hard
    Nymf Hathaway: Luxury problem really
    Nymf Hathaway: I think finding possibilities in Palestine is a whole other ball game
    sophia Placebo: well i think worries take much more energy from poeple than daily life struggles
    sophia Placebo: palestine is a very complicated issue
    Nymf Hathaway: Yes I have noticed
    Nymf Hathaway: But I do not see why really
    Nymf Hathaway: Are you from Palestine?
    sophia Placebo: well , long story short , it is a wound that have been constatly itched infected and left without proper treatment
    sophia Placebo: ah no im not
    Nymf Hathaway: I agree fully!
    Nymf Hathaway: I feel ashamed the western world stole land from the Palestinians and just gave it to another people
    Nymf Hathaway: I cannot imagine another country will accept such
    sophia Placebo: i think no need to be ashamed from somthing you didnt do
    Nymf Hathaway: Well its one of the bad things still running on this globe
    Nymf Hathaway: I hope Obama's input will help solve the situation
    sophia Placebo: im not that much optimistic
    Nymf Hathaway: no?
    sophia Placebo: no
    Nymf Hathaway: how come?
    sophia Placebo: the recent political status is in favour of no solution
    sophia Placebo: from both sides , israeli and palestenians
    Nymf Hathaway: True
    sophia Placebo: add to that hizbullah in lebanon and the current elections
    sophia Placebo: and the increasing fear of iranian threat
    Nymf Hathaway: But communication can build bridges... the Palestinians just want a piece of their own land... Israel just has to give in... and Obama made it clear thats what he wants to persue
    Nymf Hathaway: Is that really so...Iranian is seeing as a threat at this point?
    sophia Placebo: unstable iraq and possibility of reform anytime during the upcoming elections
    Nymf Hathaway: true
    sophia Placebo: yes iranians are seen to be increasing threat from israeli and amrecan side plus arab allies
    Nymf Hathaway: I hoped that would have improved a bit :(
    Nymf Hathaway: I am too optimistic and maybe onrealistic at times (noticing more and more :( )
    sophia Placebo: nitnyaho said a few days ago that jeurosulm is a capital for isreal and would not be cut into tow halvs
    Nymf Hathaway: Its depressing
    sophia Placebo: already arabs of eastern jerosulm are being debarted from thre homes
    Nymf Hathaway: oh
    Nymf Hathaway: Seen from my point of view.... the Jews are doing exactly the same as what has happend to them 60 years ago... seems like a never healed victim
    sophia Placebo: maybe
    sophia Placebo: though not all jews are
    Nymf Hathaway: I cannot imagine you would want another person to experience a thing you yourself experienced as really bad
    sophia Placebo: some are really all just about palestine
    sophia Placebo: a few days ago on press tv there was an intervew with a holocuast servivor 92 old lady who was supprting palestinians and said the same thing nymf re same experiance
    Nymf Hathaway: The fact people are fighting over land (and in a few years over planets) is stupid.... boundries are fictive. We all live on the same planet. With the same needs. A safe place, food, education and progress.
    Nymf Hathaway: Smiles... I love that lady :) wisdom comes with aging :)
    Nymf Hathaway: Sorry to say Sophia but I need to log off.... I loved our talk, thank you very much
    sophia Placebo: bye nymf :)
    Nymf Hathaway: Bye bye see you soon :)
    sophia Placebo: thank you too :)
    Nymf Hathaway: :)
