hi Dinah,

been thinking of you ....

you had written:
>> just do an aura photo search. there are a million sites. looks like exposure problems to me, but what do I know. ... >>

i hadn't done the search ... but when we spoke earlier about my voices ... ... it reminded me of this somehow ...
... so i did the search and checked out the 'aura photos' ...
... .... whoooossshh-A-moon-doH !!
... i had no idea ... what a trip!
... the scary thing to me was that among some totally harmless outfits were absolute scam artists ... to prey upon the suggestible ... i should have better imagined ... yikes!

... anyway, as i suspected, with minor exceptions, nothing i saw in any of the photographs resembled anything i've perceived as an aura ... ...
... ... at the same time, some of these photos were close to some descriptions of auras i have heard ...
... some of the _drawings_ i saw were close to my idealization of auras, although like nothing i've seen either ...

... you had asked if auras were concrete ...
... i thought, auras being such notoriously vaporous things, you were asking if they were definite and specific ... ... okay, i was stretching ... but i'm not sure i answered you then, and now i'm thinking that the answer is much more "no" then i had imagined ....

... chakras, and even more so auras, are organs of emotional preception ... and they are preceived by others auras ...

... there is a whole internal construction of our self-esteem, our self-image, our ego, ... which work to support our "face" ... ... rayww called it our 'countenance' ... our superfical bearing and demeanor ... many times it works as a protective mask ... (speaking for myself) ... whatever, it is the emotional interface we have with the world ... this is what i define as an aura ...

not to be too bold here, but you have exceptional perceptual ... ( i don't know if that's a word ... perceptional?) systems ...
(! Not that Mine are So Normal !)

... anyway, for as much as we are different, our means of perception are very divergent ...
... you don't converse with many people ...
... you don't preceive faces in composition ...
... you don't recognize people by their faces ...
... you don't hear (my and chicklet's) audio when you read ...

... ... all of which is not important, obviously, because you are a very intelligent, kind and effective person, despite these intense individual variations ... i think of them as your own blessings ... i suspect you have leveraged them to your benefit ...
.... and they have opened my eyes to how limited my view has been given my weakness to presume that i am "conventional" ... and to remind me that alternatives may be improvements too ...

"concrete" was giving way to more and more 'fluid' ... ... and then reckoning your way of perception (hypothetically speaking) ... ... this 'fluidity' spills over the falls of perception and explodes into structural / sculptural / visual poetry ...
... (if i may wax poetic for a moment) ... ?

... so given my theorizing about your perceptual estate, i just thought it might make sense that you might see auras differently ... i would say very differently ...

which is a long way to go for very little water ... sorry ...
... but i have been thinking about this ... and about how startling your posts about your perceptions can be for me, somtimes ... and it only came together for me just now ...

... i also want to tell you that however exceptional your systems of preception may be ...
... your vision of things here in pBabble city is an always kind and vivid blessing for the citizens of dear pBabblon ... ... i hope i may preceive as clearly as you ... someday ...

... of course, with all of that said ... they can just as easily still not be auras ... ...
... ... i just think they might be ... that's all ...
