Life is an infinite continuum, feeding on its own death. Our mortality, real and imagined, lives within. We can always see these truths with a discerning eye. The mirrored images that seem like two, are but one, a parallel universe whose paths cross like a wisp of wind, we are all of one time, like prose and poems written in separate centuries, but of the same struggle. There, always there, truth never hides, except for those who don’t seek it  for fear of what they might find. From light to dark we fly in different directions though toward the same destination. What matters is what we do on our flight. Do we see the paths of leaves as they float on the pond, the reflection of the sky beyond, and the trees, who have now shed their leaves but will reflect full in the spring; beneath the leaves, the roots of the lily pads  and the stare of a wary carp who looks from his world as we do from ours? We must find time on our journey to read, play a game, or simply sit and wonder at the marvels around us, for death will come in its own time…

Soup Mail Peeve


Blog Posted:3/25/2014 10:58:00 AM
Is it something I'm missing or does anyone else have this problem?  When you send a soupmail, unless you copy what you sent it disappears, so that when someone responds you can't remember exactly what you said unless they copy you. It would be nice to be able, as we are in our own personal emails to refer to what we actually sent without jumping through hoops----yes-no?

    Good point Craig . Perhaps soup could enable us to have a saved mail folder .

    That would certainly be a nice feature. I have used it before on other sites where it shows inbox and outbox and you can make the messages as long as you want. This was so much better.

    Yes! Especially if a few days pass before someone responds to you. I have often wished to recall what we were discussing. I agree!

    they tried to remedy this last year and it didn't work. I think it had glitches. I kind of remember they were working on it. Am I the only one who remembers?

    Hmmm, don't remember that but they have been usually very good at addressing concerns like this.

    I agree

    Yep. That's why I prefer to "soup-mail" using the regular e-mail or the comments on Facebook.

    Sooo yes. I cannot copy the previous conv to it as it may end up taking too much space in the current conv.

    Wow.. I thought it was just because a was a newbie and had figured everything out yet. Seems like structurally this would be an easy fix. Is there someone to direct a concern to??
