    Liza Deischer: I ned to think for a while
    Liza Deischer: so many things has been said about it
    Liza Deischer: but in general: we think it does have some impact
    Liza Deischer: thought the games change us

    Eos Amaterasu: HNY!
    Mickorod Renard: I am a slow eater compared to many
    Liza Deischer: oh
    Mickorod Renard: I like to think over every mouth full
    Liza Deischer: hmmmm
    Liza Deischer: yes eating it consciously
    Mickorod Renard: Hi Zon,,happy new year
    Liza Deischer: hi Zon, Best Wishes
    Eos Amaterasu: Hi Zon

    Eos Amaterasu: grok what's happening right now in fullness
    Mickorod Renard: grok?
    arabella Ella: Hiya!
    Liza Deischer: hi Ara, Best Wishes
    Yakuzza Lethecus: happy new year ara :)
    arabella Ella: Happy New Year to everyone!!!!!!
    Mickorod Renard: Hiya ara,,happy new year
    Eos Amaterasu: A term introduced by SciFi writer Rorber Heinlein.... appreciate fully, get it all the way
    Eos Amaterasu: Happy New Year, ARa!
    Eos Amaterasu: (seems there's a Malta contingent here)
    Mickorod Renard: nice,,I am fond of getting it all the way
    arabella Ella: :)
    arabella Ella: and Malta brings sunshine to you all :)
    Liza Deischer: you mean on your side of the circle Eos :-)
    Eos Amaterasu: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Grok
    Mickorod Renard: had sunshine here,,but still only 0 degree's
    arabella Ella: around 30 celsius here today in the sun
    Yakuzza Lethecus: i love -10 and sunshine, no water in the air and it feels warm
    Yakuzza Lethecus: celsious
    Yakuzza Lethecus: wow
    Mickorod Renard: 30 degree's is odd even in Malta at this time of year?
    arabella Ella: perfect weather for me ... but very unusual yes
    Eos Amaterasu: Here there's a lot of H20, so the cold feels especially biting
    Mickorod Renard: must be the end of the world,,this year
    Mickorod Renard: he he
    Mickorod Renard: desert just arrived
    Eos Amaterasu: dessert?
    Eos Amaterasu: dry sense of humor :-)
    Yakuzza Lethecus: :)
    Liza Deischer: :-)
    Mickorod Renard: sorry , yes dessert,,apple and blackcurrant crumble with ice cream
    Mickorod Renard: I promise to savour each mouthfull
    Liza Deischer: can we skip the desert here, Im getting hungry :-)
    Mickorod Renard: he he
    Eos Amaterasu feels mouth watering
    Mickorod Renard: but wouldnt life be great if each experience could be enjoyed like a nice dessert?
    Liza Deischer: eehhh...Im not sure it works like that
    Liza Deischer: pain is pain and grief is grief
    Mickorod Renard: thats true,,and I think that is why its not always possible to stay in a positive frame of mind all the time
    Liza Deischer: I think it is about wareness
    Liza Deischer: awareness
    Eos Amaterasu: both pleasure and pain can be appreciated, without denigrating or exaggerating either one
    Liza Deischer: to appreciating has another meaning then enyoing
    arabella Ella: would we still experience pleasure the way we do if we did not have any experience of pain i wonder?
    Zon Quar: u must first eat the main course, then the dessert
    Mickorod Renard: yes, and sometimes may have to eat something that is not liked
    Liza Deischer: yes, but still being aware of it
    Mickorod Renard: yes
    Zon Quar: enjoyment and pain r 2 sides of teh same coin
    Liza Deischer: yes, its a bit what ara said
    Mickorod Renard: Hi widget,,happy new year
    Liza Deischer: hi Widget, Best Wishes
    arabella Ella: Hiya Widget
    arabella Ella: Happy New Year!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    Widget Whiteberry: thank you, my apologies for entering late
    arabella Ella: we are beyond time here :)
    arabella Ella: timeless
    Widget Whiteberry: ☆smiles☆
    Liza Deischer: but if you come after 14.00, Im not sure anybody will be here anymore :-)
    Mickorod Renard: I always go on about balance,,but is it not so bad to have an inbalance,,in favour of enjoyment rather than pain?
    Zon Quar: yes but u will pay for it..lol
    Mickorod Renard: ahhh..maybe
    Liza Deischer: it depens howmuch pain and unjoyment you get
    Liza Deischer: it depens on
    Liza Deischer: depends
    Mickorod Renard: Hi Eliza
    Eos Amaterasu: Hi Widge, Eliza
    Liza Deischer: whatever....
    Widget Whiteberry: greetings, Eliza
    Liza Deischer: hi Eliza
    arabella Ella: Hiya Eliza Happy New Year!!!!!!!!!!!!1
    Eos Amaterasu: unjoyment :-)
    Mickorod Renard: happy new year
    Eliza Madrigal: Hi Everyone :) Happy New Year!
    Liza Deischer: ehhhh.....enjoyment
    arabella Ella: :)
    Liza Deischer: its my keyborad, not me :-)
    Liza Deischer: keyboard
    Eliza Madrigal: Oh Widget, you look stunning in red!
    Eos Amaterasu: your keyboard is you ally, madly punning
    Widget Whiteberry: My first dress in months ...
    Widget Whiteberry: thank you
    Eliza Madrigal: Hermitage ended for now? Or just adapted?
    Eos Amaterasu: Very elegant
    Widget Whiteberry: I'm finding SL encourages creativity on many levels
    arabella Ella: yes it is lovely
    Liza Deischer: ill make my apologies to my keyboard :-)
    Widget Whiteberry: Hermitage is a staple ... I'll be back to it soon
    Eliza Madrigal: :)
    Widget Whiteberry: it's all an expression of our creativity
    Widget Whiteberry: for a year here, I wore jeans... then something inside me bloomed
    Liza Deischer: and ourselves
    Eliza Madrigal smiles
    Liza Deischer: which makes it more interesting
    arabella Ella: did any of you experience the partial moon eclipse last night?
    arabella Ella: it was awesome
    arabella Ella: so mystical
    Liza Deischer: no, Im sorry
    Eos Amaterasu: it happened before I looked up :-(
    Mickorod Renard: I didnt,,:(
    Eliza Madrigal: Here in the US it wasn't an option was it... only in Europe and Asia?
    Mickorod Renard: but i had lots of moonlight through my window and curtains
    arabella Ella: it was a huge clear full moon, second time in one month, and during the partial eclipse it had a dark shadow on the bottom part
    Eos Amaterasu: 6 pm EST in North Amer
    Eliza Madrigal: The blue moon was gorgeous, I will say
    arabella Ella: here CET it was around 9pm
    arabella Ella: yes
    Eos Amaterasu: yes, moon visible thru cloud here
    Eliza Madrigal: Ah! Eos that hadnt been my understanding so I missed it
    arabella Ella: owwwww
    arabella Ella: and apparently it was an exception to have the full moon twice in one month too
    arabella Ella: start and end of december
    Eos Amaterasu: happens only once every few years
    Eliza Madrigal nods
    Eliza Madrigal: 2028 next one I think... but then I'm reading the wrong sites obviously ;-)
    arabella Ella: :)
    Mickorod Renard: I am enjoying the nights better now I havnt all them mosquitos to worry about
    Mickorod Renard: I may even get a new telescope this year
    Eliza Madrigal: Seems a nice resolution
    Mickorod Renard: trouble is,,you can access fantastic stuff on the net now,,direct from huge telescopes
    Eliza Madrigal: yes, online life can be compelling :)
    Liza Deischer: and nice telescopes seem to be less nice
    Widget Whiteberry: Mick, why is that trouble?
    Eliza Madrigal: in RL one can't wear their ballgown to the beach, or their bikini in the snow...
    Zon Quar: gtg, bye all
    Mickorod Renard: well, for me it makes me think its pointless having my own telescope
    Eliza Madrigal: Bye Zon :)
    Mickorod Renard: bye Zon
    Liza Deischer: bye Zon
    Widget Whiteberry: perhaps it is; perhaps that is one less thing you need
    Mickorod Renard: yet, at the same time, there is something nice about using ones own eyes
    Eos Amaterasu: I've found the few times I've looked through a telescope "live" that the quality of light is intense, like diamonds, -- can't get that from a screen
    Eliza Madrigal: but maybe it is like looking at pictures of lovely dinners, too
    Widget Whiteberry: but perhaps you want to be looking directly at the sky
    Eliza Madrigal nods to Eos
    Liza Deischer: yes, but I can imagine it can have its fun too in a different way
    Mickorod Renard: well,,this is the arguement that passes through my mind,,is it totally frivilous to spend out
    Eliza Madrigal: yes, sometimes there are groups which meet... in parks (at least here there used to be) and you can visit without purchasing your own
    Liza Deischer: and you make contact with people with the same interest
    Eliza Madrigal: so there may be other options if you're not sure you'd use it a lot?
    Liza Deischer: maybe it makes you think twice, but thats not so bad
    arabella Ella: yes i have joined some of those groups on occasion and they tend to have huge telescopes and to explain everything so clearly
    Mickorod Renard: but i have lots of hobbies and toys,,so maybe |I will give it a miss
    Widget Whiteberry: I feel similarly about having my own dog ... I like dogs but I can enjoy dogs that do not live with me
    Widget Whiteberry: on the other hand, I need my own computer
    Liza Deischer: :-)
    Eos Amaterasu: laptop, lap dog....
    arabella Ella: i understand that perfectly Widget ... and dogs need so much time too :)
    Eliza Madrigal: yes! I like the idea of having a dog, too
    Widget Whiteberry grins at Eos
    Eliza Madrigal: but the idea is enough for now :)
    Mickorod Renard: a loan dog sounds good
    Widget Whiteberry: all I need do is walk 10 minutes and there are friendly dogs available for interaction
    Liza Deischer: or from a shelter
    Mickorod Renard: I have one and he's great,,but a big pain at times
    Widget Whiteberry: but someone else feeds and shelters
    Mickorod Renard: works with horses
    Liza Deischer: yes but in shelters they lack human contact
    Widget Whiteberry: For me, it's part of being in a community - I needn't personally own or maintain everthing I enjoy
    Widget Whiteberry: I do need to know where to find things
    Widget Whiteberry: working with horses sounds like a great thing
    Eliza Madrigal: Ah, well put Widget, nodding
    Eliza Madrigal: there are days when my cat seems very high-maintenance so I'm not ready for a dog... maybe an herb garden... or virtual tomatoes...hehe
    Widget Whiteberry: ☆smiles☆
    Mickorod Renard: time share,,thats an option
    arabella Ella: virtual kitties are great too
    Eliza Madrigal: :))
    Eos Amaterasu: especially for a horse, sharing makes sense
    Liza Deischer: Im going
    Liza Deischer: see you all next time
    Eliza Madrigal: Bye Liza :)
    Eos Amaterasu: Bye Liza
    arabella Ella: nite Liza
    Mickorod Renard: bye Liza
    Eos Amaterasu: enjoy the year
    Widget Whiteberry: yes, good bye and HNY
    Liza Deischer: cant get away
    Eos Amaterasu thinks a pigmy elephant would be an ideal pet /companion
    Eliza Madrigal: Oh, even prettier dress standing, Widget
    Eliza Madrigal: hehe.. you're stuck with us Liza :)
    Widget Whiteberry: me too, for the moment
    Liza Deischer: it seems that way :-)
    Widget Whiteberry: and thank you
    Liza Deischer: cant get home :(
    Eliza Madrigal: click heels?
