    Agatha Macbeth: Ah yes!
    Agatha Macbeth: Thx Eos
    Eos Amaterasu: there's a magic quality this time of year
    Agatha Macbeth: Yep
    Eos Amaterasu: year turning around
    Eos Amaterasu: in the dark, lit up with points of light
    Paradise Tennant: nods listens
    Archmage Atlantis: Warren Zevon is a young person to me
    Agatha Macbeth: :)
    Agatha Macbeth: In China, won't be new year for another month
    Eos Amaterasu: In Tibet not for another two months (falls on Valentine's Day)
    Agatha Macbeth: Think it's a Tiger year this year :)
    Archmage Atlantis: Tibet, an ancient culture, seen as if new
    Eos Amaterasu: Are there any songs that put you in, or come out of, a PaB / 9 secs /90 secs / state?
    Paradise Tennant: hmmm
    Archmage Atlantis: Reminds me of NBC's slogan...."new to you
    Agatha Macbeth: I think my head's stopped working now
    Agatha Macbeth: Not that it works much anyway :)
    Eos Amaterasu: Songs are like a certain kind of suspension in an emotional moment
    Agatha Macbeth: Well for me they certainly create emotion
    Paradise Tennant: yes
    Archmage Atlantis: Do you have pets or children Agatha?
    Agatha Macbeth: Specially something like Puccini
    Agatha Macbeth: No
    Paradise Tennant: loves puccini
    Agatha Macbeth: Yeah :)
    Archmage Atlantis: Go get a gerbil
    Agatha Macbeth: Do they taste good?
    Archmage Atlantis: Reconnect to life
    Eos Amaterasu: Opera does it - Marriage of Figaro is for me the ultimate
    Eos Amaterasu: total clariy, all deceptions exposed, yet mercifully so, with humor and compassion and love
    Archmage Atlantis: I have no idea, but if you eat him or her, then you will know who you are
    Agatha Macbeth: Yeah, a carnivore!
    Agatha Macbeth: Think I'd better go now, falling asleep
    Agatha Macbeth: Bye all
    Eos Amaterasu: 'night, Agatha
    Archmage Atlantis: N ice stelllatos
    Paradise Tennant: nite agatha
    Eos Amaterasu: *clarity
    Paradise Tennant: :) funny how some music can just bring tears to your eyes
    Paradise Tennant: not necessarily of sadness it is almost that you are weeping for the beauty of it
    Eos Amaterasu: touched, moved
    Eos Amaterasu: world's vulnerability, your vulnerability
    Paradise Tennant: yes
    Paradise Tennant: sort of like it twangs something inside us that renders a resonance ..
    Paradise Tennant: one of the human condition
    Eos Amaterasu: There's that famous scene in The Shawshank Redemption where all the prisoners in the yard experience this big pause for a couple of minutes while a Mozart aria fills the yard
    Paradise Tennant: yes a very powerful movie
    Eos Amaterasu: and then the hero, forget his name (Tim Robbins?), is thrown into solitary, but he says he still has Mozart with him, in his mind
    Archmage Atlantis: Our mind is a wonderful gift, and a curse
    Eos Amaterasu: we have not choice but to use our mind to deal with our mind
    Eos Amaterasu: mind/heart, or heart/mind, I should say
    Eos Amaterasu: music is a lot about knowingness through emotion, through heart
    Paradise Tennant: yes nods
    Paradise Tennant: very true
    Archmage Atlantis: There is no should, only seeing
    Eos Amaterasu: How is that a curse, Arch?
    Archmage Atlantis: to see, is to wish better things for others
    Archmage Atlantis: Yet that is not in my power
    Eos Amaterasu: there's an unrequitedness to our actions, to our heart
    Archmage Atlantis: Thus to know truth is a curse, and a joy
    Eos Amaterasu: "For deep in my heart I know there is no help I can bring." (To Ramona, Bob Dylan)
    Paradise Tennant: :)
    Archmage Atlantis: Yes, Eos, deep in the heart it is
    Eos Amaterasu: One of my current PaB songs: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8nHwILs8bdo
    Archmage Atlantis: Break to watch, then
    Eos Amaterasu: give up all possibility of fruition
    Paradise Tennant: lovely
    Paradise Tennant: I wish you both a very merry xmas but I must scoot and do santa type of stuff .. :) big wave from a chilly toronto :)
    Eos Amaterasu: your magnetic notes still capture the minutes I'm in

    Eos Amaterasu: If I had more time I might experiment with more AVs
    Eos Amaterasu: There's a question of whether it's more / multiple AVs for oneself, or for others
    Eos Amaterasu: In a way you could be anybody, built around circumstances
    Eos Amaterasu: In a way that's what we are
    Eos Amaterasu: little openings of awareness circa 2000 CE, lasting up to 100 years max or so
