    Riddle Sideways: good morning, Oh great Listener
    Many Avs entered close, but most had some other place to go :)
    Corvuscorva Nightfire: Hi Riddle
    Riddle Sideways: good morning, Corvi
    Riddle Sideways: long time, no chat
    Corvuscorva Nightfire: nods.
    Corvuscorva Nightfire: I've been away alot.
    Riddle Sideways: that usually meant a trip someplace
    Riddle Sideways: but now could just be not in SL for a while
    Corvuscorva Nightfire: some of it has been trips, anyway.
    Have the easy to sk question that is so hard to answer.
    Corvuscorva Nightfire: how have you been?
    Riddle Sideways: mostly really good
    Corvuscorva Nightfire nods. "I'm glad to hear it! though I wish it was unmitigated real good.
    Riddle Sideways: many times (since I have so many lives to check) that is a hard question
    Corvuscorva Nightfire nods, grinning in complete agreement.
    Riddle Sideways: please tell me where you have been
    Riddle Sideways: no, not the facts/figures, I guess I meant what did you experience
    Corvuscorva Nightfire thinks about this.
    Corvuscorva Nightfire: I got to go to the retreat in California and that was amazing.
    Corvuscorva Nightfire: I learned a great deal there.
    Sorry, something happened in RL and I missed that you wrote that Corvi or I would have followed up on it.
    Instead I went off on what had been on my mind these last few days.

    Riddle Sideways: I was getting up, making breakfast, cleaning up house, the usual this morning
    Riddle Sideways: when the some ol thing smelled new
    Corvuscorva Nightfire: oh that sounds so nice..tell me more?
    Riddle Sideways: a brand new thingie entered the kitchen and became a part of the same ol
    Corvuscorva Nightfire nods, grins.
    Riddle Sideways: I can't say it correctly, but was taken with the "same-ness" of "change"

    Riddle Sideways: the layers
    Corvuscorva Nightfire: nods..I think I understand. like the same old task is a symphony piece..repeating and repeating with little changes that make it new?
    Riddle Sideways: ah yes you do understand better then me
    Riddle Sideways: I read the first few sentences of an email
    Corvuscorva Nightfire: I wouldn't have looked there except by your pointer.
    Riddle Sideways: about "starting points"
    reference to the newest PaB email subject thread.
    Corvuscorva Nightfire nods, listening
    Riddle Sideways: had to run for the toaster bing
    Riddle Sideways: and thought "how did I start on my spiritual journey
    Riddle Sideways: well.... the cat meowed and I woke up
    Riddle Sideways: saw it was 5:30 and should start
    Corvuscorva Nightfire giggles, nods, bows to the beauty of this.
    Riddle Sideways: most people point at some young experience that started them
    Riddle Sideways thinks it just always was
    Corvuscorva Nightfire: nods, thoughfully.
    Riddle Sideways: there are a few BIG moments in your path
    Riddle Sideways: but there are millions of little steps

    Corvuscorva Nightfire nods.
    Corvuscorva Nightfire: every note is important
    Corvuscorva Nightfire: not just the crescendo

    Riddle Sideways: there are 7 steps down from my bedroom
    Riddle Sideways: I sing those counting steps in the dark each morning
    Riddle Sideways: there is a settling to going down 7 stairs
    Riddle Sideways: step number 3 has a squeak on the left side
    Riddle Sideways: I can play a game (if I want) with that sound
    Corvuscorva Nightfire grins

    Riddle Sideways: these are the little things that repeat, and start anew and awaken
    Corvuscorva Nightfire: nods, smiles.."little bits of "practice""
    Riddle Sideways: then there are big things, like 2 of my band mates are having an affair
    Corvuscorva Nightfire nods.
    Riddle Sideways: I hope the band does not break up
    Corvuscorva Nightfire nods."yeah"
    Riddle Sideways: I hope they're marriages don't
    Corvuscorva Nightfire nods "yeah"
    ummm, Fox or Fael entered and sat.
    Fox Monacular: Hello Corvi, Riddle
    Riddle Sideways: Hi Fael
    Riddle Sideways: very nice wings
    Corvuscorva Nightfire: Hi Fox,!
    Fox Monacular: thanks:)
    Riddle Sideways: there have been lots of people through here today
    Riddle Sideways: but not stopping

    Riddle Sideways: 90-sec is such a long time now
    Riddle Sideways: it seems like 10 times what a 9-sec is
    Corvuscorva Nightfire: yes it is!
    Corvuscorva Nightfire: at least!
    Fox Monacular: it's longer in the morning than in the evening
    Riddle Sideways: grins

    Riddle Sideways: hi Cal
    Caledonia Heron: hi there :)
    Riddle Sideways: hi widget
    Corvuscorva Nightfire: Hi Cal, widget!
    Widget Whiteberry: ☆smiles☆

    Riddle Sideways: we were (semi) talking about the same ol little things that take us on our paths
    Riddle Sideways: oops, please correct me corvi
    Corvuscorva Nightfire nods.. "we were talking about music."
    Corvuscorva Nightfire: laughs

    Caledonia Heron: excellent, I just saw Buddy Guy :)
    Corvuscorva Nightfire: did you?! That would be a big thing..a crescendo!
    Riddle Sideways: yes, a big thing
    Riddle Sideways: this weekend we were comparing Buddy Guy stories at a party
    Caledonia Heron: he's had a long career, lots to compare :)
    Riddle Sideways: how old is he now?
    Caledonia Heron: not sure, old enough to win 5 grammys and be in the r&r hall of fame :)
    Widget Whiteberry: What does this story mean to the two of you?
    Caledonia Heron: he's a contemporary of BB King
    Riddle Sideways: image doing what you love to do
    Riddle Sideways: and people came and pay to hear you
    Widget Whiteberry nods

    Caledonia Heron: are you asking me Widget, what does this interchange mean to me?
    Widget Whiteberry: yes, Cal
    Caledonia Heron: I just arrived, they said they were talking about music, I said I just saw buddy guy ... pretty straightforward accounting :)
    Widget Whiteberry: ☆smiles☆
    Caledonia Heron: it doesn't "mean" anything really :)
    Riddle Sideways: hi Yak
    Corvuscorva Nightfire: Hi Yak!
    Widget Whiteberry: I understand what Dave Pollard calls the sweetspot: sustainable and joyful work
    Caledonia Heron: hi Yakuzza
    Riddle Sideways: yet, to me I had to pour through all the buddy guy references, stories, songs, thoughts and type just the right stupid remark
    Riddle Sideways: it refreshed so many memories
    Riddle Sideways: but, that is just the mood the I is in

    Caledonia Heron: are you guys still doing the 9sec practice?
    Corvuscorva Nightfire: sometimes, anyway
    Widget Whiteberry: I am, irregularly
    Riddle Sideways: when this 90 sec thing isn't overdoing it
    Riddle Sideways: :)
    Corvuscorva Nightfire: smiles, nods.
    Widget Whiteberry: feels like a moment of bringing myself to attention

    Riddle Sideways: twice yesterday I was watching a second hand on the wall clock
    Riddle Sideways: the first time 9 seconds was a long time
    Riddle Sideways: the second time it was so short
    Riddle Sideways: I have a mountain of napkins, post-its, notebooks, etc. with little thoughts written
    Corvuscorva Nightfire: nice.
    Riddle Sideways: well, actually I have 30+ piles all over
    Caledonia Heron: bind them for a funky little book :)
    Riddle Sideways: yeah right, when I get around to it
    Caledonia Heron: lol, you're the guy on the news they have to shovel out of his house :)
    Riddle Sideways: exactly

    Riddle Sideways: then there are the digital note piles
    Corvuscorva Nightfire: heh
    Caledonia Heron: those can be more overwhelming
    Riddle Sideways: palm memos left on one that does not work anymore
    Riddle Sideways: one of my do-workers started 'helping' me
    Riddle Sideways: caught on to what my little gong sound means
    Widget Whiteberry likes 'do-workers'
    Riddle Sideways: so he bangs his spoon on a tea cup
    Riddle Sideways: *co-worker
    Widget Whiteberry: I know, but still....
    Widget Whiteberry: it has a nice 'ring' to it
    Riddle Sideways: :)
    Caledonia Heron: lol, exactly .... love workers who do.... need more do-workers

    Riddle Sideways: corvi, amoungst my same ol things that change was that I finally threw that old keyboard that would skip or double type d's
    Riddle Sideways: sad to put a long time partner in the trash
    Riddle Sideways: but it was discusting
    Caledonia Heron: they get crusty
    Corvuscorva Nightfire: nods.
    Corvuscorva Nightfire: smiles..yeah..it is sad and difficult to let go of things like that.
    OK, ok, ok not all this session was serious work .
    Riddle Sideways: suggestion.... do NOT look at your keyboard right now
    Riddle Sideways: ha, made you look
    Widget Whiteberry: I need a key board cleaning service
    Corvuscorva Nightfire: laughs
    Caledonia Heron: I've taken to flipping it over and banging it, all kinds of stuff falls out, ugh
    Corvuscorva Nightfire: admits to doing the same sort of thing
    Widget Whiteberry tries it

    Riddle Sideways: I need a service that quietly takes any of those things that I would be too sad to throw away myself
    Caledonia Heron: stuff, use it or lose it :)
    Riddle Sideways: like the sock taking service
    Caledonia Heron: lol
    Caledonia Heron: Zorn dumped out his entire sock drawer, threw them all away and bought 2 dozen black socks and 2 dozen white socks,
    Riddle Sideways: am afraid my wife's service would throw me out
    Widget Whiteberry: I need to go
    Caledonia Heron: /awww Riddle, I'm sure your wife finds you both handsome and handy :)
    Remember Cal has not met me in person.
    Riddle Sideways: well, I need to go too
    Widget Whiteberry: bye all
    Riddle Sideways: lol
    Caledonia Heron: bye :)
    Corvuscorva Nightfire: Bye all!
    Riddle Sideways: bye and thanks
    Corvuscorva Nightfire must go, too.
