    Pensive - those chairs are marvelous - know where I can get one?

    ...which reminds me, where have you been lately in our short story discussion....we all miss you.

    How about a huge magic carpet? We could just float around the world together...see everything from a cloud!

    I've changed my mind, Bad was right Kansas is not a good place for the reunion. I change my vote to Louisiana.

    They probably fall all into the sea for being too absorbed in their reading and not looking at where they're going

    Hi Janine! () Ummmm....that's the problem, we have to find the place where they actually are to spend the day of our forum reunion perhaps?

    ...which reminds me, where have you been lately in our short story discussion....we all miss you.
    Was busy in fooling around and playing games lately! But now you remind me of it, I would most certainly be there! Miss it too!

    How about a huge magic carpet? We could just float around the world together...see everything from a cloud!
    That's a good idea but would we be able to put our eatables' stall on it? And oh there would be plenty of heavy heavy books! I fear the carpet would collapse...

    Exactly! And there are even some carpets which follow their own 'mind' who knows where they take us? *pretends to shudder at the thought*

So........Pacific Coast, Central America............see you there....................

    hey Baddad! Was wondering where you've been.

    That's only because you leave vague details of where you'll be, good to see your still around. Were your ears burning?

    baddad, ok, i'll bring a swim suit to iceland, but we'll have to take eskimo gear if we're going to go to central america, once the poles shift we'll be freezing anyway

    Shakespeare and Company, Paris....meeting place for many poets and authors for many many years gone by.....how great is that? We might sit in a chair that James Joyce once occuppied.

    You can bring your great chairs to my magic carpet! We will be rockin' in the sky.....and floating on clouds.....

    Was busy in fooling around and playing games lately! But now you remind me of it, I would most certainly be there! Miss it too!
    I noticed - well, it is summer and you needed a rest and 'down-time'. Thanks for coming back to short stories. Starting a new one now; will you participate - you are a great asset!

    That's a good idea but would we be able to put our eatables' stall on it? And oh there would be plenty of heavy heavy books! I fear the carpet would collapse...
    Pensy, didn't you know? 'Magic Carpets' can hold a entire world! Weight is no problem in the realm of imagination.

    Your magic carpet sounds good but still there is a fear of its collapse? By most of the 'magic carpet' books I have read, I have learnt never to trust it! Many claim it has a mind of its own and can take you anywhere. Risky and scary, isn't it?

    Oh don't thank me I myself like to discuss Lawrence's works. And yes, I would love to participate in this one too. I am afraid though I might not be able to remain very active, because I have got some other books also to read/complete yet in July including To the Lighthouse, Oscar Wilde's stories, upcoming Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows and another book which I am reading at the moment. But as these are summer vacations, there is a plenty of time and I would love to participate.

    Pensy, true they can have 'a mind of their own' sort of like computers ...BUT.... MY magic carpet is a special one - very sturdy - and equiped with steering and other high tech equipment (do use your imagination!). It is a lovely Persian carpet and wonderfully soft to glide along the heavenly realms of soft fluffy clouds (those clouds also will keep us airborn). What a spectacular view we will have of the entire world and the stars and planets, too. We can wave to all our friends on Lit Net, as we sail by their repective countries, on the upper atmospheric vapours or purest blue. Dream, dream, dream and we will be fine and safe, too! The carpet is the place to meet. Anyway, most of us already have our minds high in the clouds - don't we? It won't take much to get us airborn!


    Oh don't thank me I myself like to discuss Lawrence's works. And yes, I would love to participate in this one too.

But as these are summer vacations, there is a plenty of time and I would love to participate.
    I am glad you do. It seems several of you have found a new interest in reading Lawrence. I am glad I have been influencing your all in that respect. Still I do know how busy we all are, most definitely, including myself! I have slowed up some, but now that you mentioned it - I am also reading TTLH and the Oscar Wilde stories. The Wilde - I just got them out of my library today. I don't think the book has all of them, ,so I may have to read some oneline. I only read one, so far - 'Devoted Friend' - but the others I have read years ago and know pretty well.
    Wow, so you are also reading two other books - the Potter ones?! Well, the short story this time is just that -- short-- so if you do find any time left over, stop by for some comments or just to read the posts or say hi. Always good to see you there!
