Hi Felipe :) I'm guessing you are either not free to go on the net at 8pm or you didn't get my previous message yet. If I can, I will try to come here later today, but if not, I will come here tomorrow at 4.30pm (unfortunately very early morning for you - today no work so can be here early and not keep you awake too late! ;)). Hope you have fun writing songs with the Make Music For Relief group also :) All my best wishes, Aaralyn :) :) :)
I looked up on time conversion and it says 10:00:00 a.m. Wednesday February 22, 2012 in Australia/Victoria converts to 08:00:00 p.m. Tuesday February 21, 2012 in Chile/Continental, so I will get to the computer at roughly 10am and you will at 8pm to be able to chat at same time :) :) :) I hope that works for you! Thanks for hanging around yesterday - I was there yesterday about 6pm but we must have not seen each other :( Talk to you tomorrow!!! :) :) :)
I forgot to say about Mon and Fri (sorry, wrote that message 4 times and it kept disappearing before I sent it, so I forgot that bit the last time ;P) - I am often in recording studio til 5/6pm on those days & it can take 1 1/2 hours to get back from there at times, so only 20 mins or so to chat on Mon and none at all on Fri. But today I got here early enough for almost 2 hours!
Pick a time you like when I am available - I don't mind when, as long as I know in advance! ;) :P :)
Glad you like the second pic - it is pretty cool on the coast in that place, I love the greenery and the wild water etc. :)
I will do :) :) :) So glad we could talk - sorry to keep you up, though - hope you have slept well by next time you see waht I have written :) If you are interested any time, we could arrange a time to chat on the internet when we are both free - at the moment, seemingly you are 10 hours ahead of me (or 14 hours behind me), so we could work it out. My library opening hours are 10am-8pm Mon-Wed, 10am-6pm Thu-Fri, 10am-2pm Sat & 2-5pm Sun, & I am allowed to use the internet there 2 hours per day. Tue & Thu I could get there after work between 4.30/5pm til closing time, Wednesday anytime as it's my free day, Sat anytime except I often sleep in that day as it's my only chance to do so and I often have trouble sleeping so need the extra sleep by then, and Sun anytime. :) My local internet place (have to pay there) is open til 9pm nightly except Fri & Sat when it's open til 10pm. So, let me know if you're interested in making a time to chat when we're both available :) :) :) I am having a lovely one, the evening light here is lovely and the weather is warm but not too hot :) - here's another pic or two for you from what I've taken :)
Bit blurry but still nice enough, I think?
From a wild & very windy part of our coastline
From the same place, but to its right :) :) :) Hope you enjoy!
It is 3.56pm and my time available on computer is almost up - can I come later in day to reply to you from internet cafe? Sorry about having to go right now - I would prefer to stay and chat. But I will be back! :) :) :)
Oh, I'm glad you got them all - I figured it would take you a while to answer them all, but as long as you have them all, I am happy :) :) :) And if you would like help getting your amp and guitar running, let me know :) I'll do what I can :) :) :)
Did you get my previous message before the forgiveness one, and the one after it too? I sent them all to your inbox in case you got confused and only read one or something ;)
Thankyou very much for your reply - 'not strike back' is a great way of looking at it! I like that, and it is very clear and said in very few words, which is great for a song :) :) :) It is true, sometimes it is not possible to restore confidence, but at others, after working at it hard, you can, and that is great, especially when it is with good friends! :) :) :) I always have loved it in the past when I and my friends have been able to come back to trusting each other after something big got in the way of that - forgiveness feels great, both to receive and to give, and to not have it held against you any more but be given trust again that feels a bit undeserved in light of what you did to break it but knowing you wish to never do it again, it's wonderful to receive that trust again. :) :) :) I appreciate your thoughts very much - thankyou for sharing them with me :) You have a great mind :) :) :) Aars
Shame about your electric guitar and amp not working :( Glad you have an acoustic though - I've been working mainly on my acoustic lately too (cos I don't have to plug it in ;D). Meant to say that before but forgot ;P
Can I ask for your thoughts on something, if you have any on this topic?
I am trying to write a song about forgiveness, as it has been a big topic in my life lately, and for me, I think forgiveness does not need to involve forgetting (Eddie Vedder from Pearl Jam said in one of the songs on 'BackSpacer': "Can I forgive what I cannot forget and live a lie?" and I do not believe that forgiving has to involve forgetting - I'm thinking it's just about not requiring whoever you are forgiving to pay you back in any way for what they have done to you, and I think in some cases it is best not to forget - like if the person does not care about having hurt you and hopes to do so again, so you need to remember so you can keep yourself as safe as possible from them in the future.) What do you think about any of that? I find it hard to say my thoughts in a clear way, so I thought if I could get your thoughts on it, maybe it will help me say my thoughts in a clearer way, and maybe give me another way of looking at it all? :) Hope that made sense - lots of words in there, sorry! ;) I'm a wordy one!
It is kind of strange using our profiles like chat, but nice! :) I don't mind at all that you are talking Spanish :) I've forgotten if I need to translate my stuff into Spanish or not? I wondered if you might be having trouble with at least depression because you are dealing with a circumstance you didn't expect and are most likely uncertain what the future will hold. I'm very sorry that you're feeling that - hang in there, things will get better, good times will come, and no matter what happens regarding work and study, you are alive and have capability and are a wonderful-hearted human being, so the future of your spirit is settled - a very good future!!! :) :) :) The translation said something about 'hate yourself' in amongst talking about Kurt Cobain and I was wondering if that was a mistranslation or you truly do hate yourself? I hope you do not - I love the person you are and don't think you are at all worthy of hate. But if you do, I understand, as I have felt the same about myself in the past (and not so distant past at times ;)). I'm glad Kurt is a source of inspiration for you :) I like Nirvana's music, though sometimes I find the lyrics do not talk about the good things in life or remind us of them.
All my very best wishes to you - I'm so glad we can talk here, and sorry for my reply taking a while ;) My health has been a very lot better - I have to take an asthma preventer now so I can breathe (I never had asthma at all before, so it's unexpected) and do the things I need to do, now :) :) :)
Hi Felipe! It's lovely to hear from you again!!!!!!!!! I feel the same way about God - I have a bit of a hard time with religion but not at all with God, and I do believe God is love, too!!! :) :) :) I think God is in everything good in this world :)
I am fairly well and having a good time with our possible new drummer - he has drummed on four of our tracks now, and they are the best drums we've had on our tracks and really I couldn't think of any way to better them, so I am amazingly pleased - I wish he would stay with the band.
How are things with you? Are you working? Have you written any more music (by the way, did I ever tell you I watched one or two of your covers of Linkin Park a while ago, and thought you are really great on the guitar? I was impressed :) :) :))? I hope things are going okay for you and not too overwhelming. :) All my best wishes to you,
