    I wonder if we can consider thoughts as being conceptual tattoos upon the folded skin of our memories.
    A tear of joy or one of sadness? Chemically, it matters not but I'd like to think it does. After all, we want happy eyes, don't we?

    And yes, conceptual tattoos could be thoughts. Not unlike charms on Pandora bracelets.

    And inside of us there are trillions of little quantum bursts of energy going off within the confines of tiny force fields. We're made up of fireworks and we don't even know it! So exciting!

    What do you like seeing with happy, fresh eyes that is easy to miss at times?

    I like looking at trees. So often they can seem part of the landscape, but you just need to get up close to them and observe. Then you can see that they are an entire planet to the caravans of ants that roam their landscapes. you can see the constellations that the sun and leaves make upon the ground. You can see their depth, and the beauty that glows off of them. you can pick up a sense of time and waiting about them. A sense that even though they are immobile, they still move.
    There is something about the natural beauty of the world that I find very pleasing too Saturned, I like a lot of the trees and greenery I associate with Ireland though, the trees and the green elsewhere dont seem the same at all really. I also like the sea and things which appear to suggest hidden depths or have an other worldly quality to them.

    Also women, I was going to say people, although that is not strictly true, I definitely have an eye for the beauty of the fairer sex.

    Tears of sadness have a higher salt composition.

    If I had such a bracelet I would adorn it with clouds and the smell of rain and the tail feather of a unicorn.

    A higher salt composition will make it harder for you to evaporate into mist...unless you want to be ethereal mist!

    If I had such a bracelet, I wouldn't know what to collect and what not to. Perhaps I would either end up with a bracelet to fit a nanowrist or a terawrist. Thus, I would only like a conceptual bracelet. Much like the one I currently have.

    I can't literally stop and smell the roses for the sake of literally smelling roses. It does absolutely nothing for me.

    What stimuli like that can do, however, is give me a 'starting point.' I completely zone out and ponder magnificence, meaning, complexity, interconnection, and gratitude. Or, I 'lose focus' and just let the subconscious take over. Y'know, that sort of bullshit

    I don't tend to match my mood to stimuli, though--it's kind of the other way around. For example, calm music doesn't do crap to induce calmness in me. But give me music that's loud as hell with an upbeat tempo and lots of energy, and I can readily lose myself in it, because it's a close match to my energy level and is thus easier to get in sync with.

    Yes, but I always hoped I would leave a tiny smidgen of myself here... in the form of... salt powder apparently.

    You could collect whatever you wished to! Memories, the swirl of a storm, the gentle awakening of a iris as it begins to light up its bulb, etc.

    Roses are rather vile. Their scent is a perfect graveyard of what could have been.

    Very interesting about you and the music. I find peace in whatever music I can fall into and take a tiny nap in. Sometimes it is calm and other times it's quite loud and upbeat.

    Thank you for your thoughts!

    Only the best salt, I'm sure.

    Ah then, I will trap my world in the bracelet and bring it with me as my very own amulet when I visit other worlds.

    Saturnian salt.

    Of course you need such a bracelet... how else do you think you shall get back?

    I was told that Babylon candles could bring me anywhere!
