    Mickorod Renard: I tell u what, now the autumn leaves are falling, I am finding it hard not to feel darker
    Gaya Ethaniel: You mean the day getting shorter?
    SophiaSharon Larnia: ironically I feel the opposite Mick isnt that strange
    Mickorod Renard: that contributes, but I think autumn is a human thing as well as tree's etc
    Gaya Ethaniel nods.
    Mickorod Renard: odd Sophia
    Eden Haiku: Do we know when the mist comes out? Is it random from now on?
    SophiaSharon Larnia: every 15 minutes Eden, for 90 seconds
    Scathach Rhiadra: brb

    Mickorod Renard: out with old in with new
    Zen Arado: not much change in seasons in some countries
    Mickorod Renard: but I feel the darkness and cold coming
    SophiaSharon Larnia: change in season has it own delights, like hay rides and apple cider
    Zen Arado: Australia for instance
    Eden Haiku: I'M inviting a friend, is that Ok?

    Gaya Ethaniel: There is an interesting exhibition in London re: darkness.
    Gaya Ethaniel: I will go as soon as I get a chance :)
    SophiaSharon Larnia: in rl or sl? laughs
    Mickorod Renard: what's it about Gaya?
    Eden Haiku: The moment is over when the bell rings, right?
    Bertram Jacobus: yes eden
    Gaya Ethaniel: It's a huge container of some sort and completely dark - only open one side as entrance.
    Gaya Ethaniel: More you go in, darker it gets ...
    Eden Haiku: I had this impulse of lifting my two palms to the screen when the mist started...
    Mickorod Renard: I feel there is a difference between getting dark in evening to getting dark from eclipse
    SophiaSharon Larnia: smiles at Eden....
    Gaya Ethaniel: http://www.tate.org.uk/modern/exhibi...a/default.shtm
    Mickorod Renard: thanks gaya
    Gaya Ethaniel: yw :)
    Zen Arado: ty
    Zen Arado: interesting
    Eden Haiku: Is it like experiencing what a blind person feels this darkness thing in London Gaya?
    Gaya Ethaniel: It took me years to adjust to being in UK which is further away from equator than Korea ...
    Gaya Ethaniel: I think one can adjust to pretty much anything ... we are much more flexible than we think.
    Gaya Ethaniel: I don't know yet, I'm looking forward to visiting the gallery. Some people gets disturbed by it I heard.
    Qt Core: here in bilan there is a total dark bar managed by blind people
    Mickorod Renard: Miroslaw Balka's box of darkness is disturbing in its historical echoes but beautiful as well. The Times Miroslaw Balka's black hole at Tate Modern is terrifying, awe-inspiring and thought-provoking. It embraces you with a velvet chill. The Guardian
    Qt Core: where they make you feel what is being blind
    SophiaSharon Larnia: wow Qt
    Gaya Ethaniel: Mum!
    Qt Core: (never been there)
    SophiaSharon Larnia: Hi Wol
    Zen Arado: teaches trust?
    Mickorod Renard: Hiya Woll
    Wol Euler: hello everyone, sorry I'm late
    Zen Arado: is that good?
    Zen Arado: Hi Wol
    Qt Core: bilan=Milan
    Gaya Ethaniel looks at Wol for some fabulous tan ...
    Scathach Rhiadra: hello Wol:0
    Bertram Jacobus: hello wol ! late ? no problem ! ;o)
    Gaya Ethaniel: We are talking about darkness Wol.
    Gaya Ethaniel: season changing and so on
    Eden Haiku: Kali yuga...
    Gaya Ethaniel: Let me make a nc ... one moment.
    Wol Euler: ty
    Zen Arado: suppose we all put a lot of trust in technology around us
    Zen Arado: I trust cars will stop at traffic lights when I cross
    Zen Arado: too much trust maybe
    Eden Haiku: I trust people. Then, sometimes, I change my mind;-)
    SophiaSharon Larnia: it does seem that way Eden, i wonder if it is really kali yuga
    Eden Haiku: Good question Sophia...who knows?
    SophiaSharon Larnia: brb phone
    Eden Haiku: Play as being on cell phones...
    Zen Arado: my zen name is way of trust
    Zen Arado: Doshin
    Zen Arado: not sure in what :)
    Bertram Jacobus: nice ... :-)
    Zen Arado: the process probably
    Eden Haiku: November 2nd in Catholic church, is the Day of the Dead.
    Zen Arado: pray for dead
    Zen Arado: in purgatory?
    Eden Haiku: My mother went back to darkness a year and a half ago. I lighted a candle for her today.
    Qt Core: even in hell or heaven, you don't know where they ebded ;-)
    Qt Core: ended
    Mickorod Renard: or where we will
    Eden Haiku: Darkness as the fold we are born from and return to.
    Wol Euler: perhaps she was reborn already, that baby in the blue stroller that you walked past on Thursday
    SophiaSharon Larnia: (yes pab even on cell phone :p)
    Eden Haiku: That is true, I know. Could be.
    Bertram Jacobus: re sophia s ;-)
    Bertram Jacobus: but ... wasn't it friday ?
    SophiaSharon Larnia: ive been thinking about that alot Wol, looking at everyone around me, wondering....
    Mickorod Renard: Its more likely death will be a happier place if we have a positive spirit when we go
    Wol Euler smiles and nods
    Qt Core: sunday the saints and monday the deads
    Zen Arado: dark, dark , dark, we all go into the dark.....
    Gaya Ethaniel: heh :)
    Eden Haiku: This time my hands joined in prayer in front of my screen, Mudras...automatic mudras, wow!
    SophiaSharon Larnia: is the dark the unknown?
    SophiaSharon Larnia: and not literal dark
    Gaya Ethaniel: You do some sort of meditation regularly in RL Eden?
    Mickorod Renard: u only find that out when u switch the light on
    Eden Haiku: I like darkness, it is a safe haven.
    Wol Euler: actually, most people who survive near-death experiences talk about "bright light" rather than darkness...
    Scathach Rhiadra nods
    Zen Arado: yes
    Eden Haiku: I used too, but not anymore no...
    Gaya Ethaniel: ah ok
    Wol Euler: darkness is possibly our fear and uncertainty than their experience.
    Wol Euler: *rather than
    Scathach Rhiadra: I have always thought of what we come from and go to as luminous
    SophiaSharon Larnia: switching a light on reveals things that are hard to look at
    Gaya Ethaniel: Hello Aidan :)
    Mickorod Renard: hi aiden
    SophiaSharon Larnia: Hi Aidan and Cynthia
    Gaya Ethaniel: Hello Cynthia :)
    Eden Haiku: Hi guys!
    Mickorod Renard: hi Cynthia
    Wol Euler: hello cynthia, aidan
    Zen Arado: Hi Aiden, Cynthia
    Wol Euler: you were both here last week, I think?
    Aidan Spiritor: Hello
    Cynthia Macbeth: hey
    Scathach Rhiadra: Hello aidan, cynthia
    Bertram Jacobus: hy aidan and cynthia ... :-)
    Mickorod Renard: passes towel to cynthia
    Aidan Spiritor: :-))
    Cynthia Macbeth takes towel
    Gaya Ethaniel: :)
    SophiaSharon Larnia: smiles
    Gaya Ethaniel: Born today Cynthia - welcome to SL.
    Wol Euler: oh yes, congratulations.
    Eden Haiku: Welcome to SL Cynthia. It is nice to have a newborn with us today...
    Mickorod Renard: just given Cynth a card
    Gaya Ethaniel: ty Mick :)
    Mickorod Renard: I like light
    Bertram Jacobus: may be we come and go from and to nowhere ...
    Gaya Ethaniel: Why do you think that Scath?
    Mickorod Renard: but as with autumn, maybe its like a flower opening and closing
    Scathach Rhiadra: just do:))
    Scathach Rhiadra: luminosity = knowing, cognisance
    Gaya Ethaniel nods ... darkness always feel like narrowing down to me.
    SophiaSharon Larnia: and the opposite? forgetting
    Gaya Ethaniel: But season changes are about cycles I think.
    Wol Euler: the cartoon light bulb-above-your-head of understanding or invention
    SophiaSharon Larnia: hehe
    Scathach Rhiadra: some say we do our forgetting in life, forget what we really are
    Aidan Spiritor: which is what?
    Cynthia Macbeth: what i this
    SophiaSharon Larnia: grins
    Cynthia Macbeth: what is this
    Scathach Rhiadra: much greater than the 'selves' we limit our selves to
    Aidan Spiritor: hmmm.....not so clear
    Eden Haiku: We meditate for a few seconds very 15 minutes and then we talk Cynthia,
    Bertram Jacobus: hoi yaku :-)
    Gaya Ethaniel: Hello Yakuzza :)
    Wol Euler: hello yakuzza
    Mickorod Renard: Hi Yaku
    Cynthia Macbeth: I see
    Scathach Rhiadra: Hello Yakuzza
    Yakuzza Lethecus: hey everyone
    SophiaSharon Larnia: Hi Yakuzza
    Qt Core: Hi yakuzza
    Zen Arado: Hi Yak
    Eden Haiku: When the fountain becomes like mist, we just stop writing and meditate.
    Eden Haiku: For 90 seconds.
    Zen Arado: On a bare branch a rook roosts, Autumn dusk
    Zen Arado: (haiku)
    Gaya Ethaniel: :)
    SophiaSharon Larnia: :)
    Eden Haiku: Beautiful haiku zen...
    Bertram Jacobus: love haikus ...
    Scathach Rhiadra: :)
    Bertram Jacobus: many of them
    Wol Euler: :)
    Zen Arado: rooks suggest death and loneliness
    SophiaSharon Larnia: as does bare branch and autumn
    Bertram Jacobus: they are like levitating often ... so nice ...
    Mickorod Renard: rooks are very clever, as birds go, I wonder whether with intelligence some buren is carried?
    Mickorod Renard: naturally I will have to let you answer that..I wouldn't know
    SophiaSharon Larnia: was thinking about Qt description of the blind bar, with that pause :) Feeling the way through mist... feeling concern of direction dropping away.
    Mickorod Renard: burden*
    Gaya Ethaniel: :)
    Bertram Jacobus: i think, such a blind bar may be very relaxin ...
    Gaya Ethaniel nods ... once you accept it I guess ...
    Zen Arado: typing animation won't stop for me :)
    Zen Arado: ah has now
    Scathach Rhiadra: :)
    Gaya Ethaniel: yes sometimes you have to type something to stop that.
    Eden Haiku: Do you know you can disable that typing animation Zen?
    Gaya Ethaniel: how strange ... no lag at all today.

    Mickorod Renard: and in such different scenarios

    SophiaSharon Larnia thinks of a wall of TV screen, all playing different shows, for some reason :)
    Gaya Ethaniel: :D that fits!
    SophiaSharon Larnia: the visual picture is a bit of overload, actually!
    Eden Haiku: Yes, different scenarios.,, Same script in SL.
    Gaya Ethaniel: One sees what one sees ...
    Scathach Rhiadra: little windows of light in the darkness around the world
    Zen Arado: wonder how far apart we are?
