Default a year later / Na'vi, again!?

Well, the first part "a year later" is because it has just begun to soak into my consciousness (after I read some posts on the subject) that yes, it's been about a year, a bit more, since I saw Avatar for the first time... Already a year? Only a year? What a year!
I've just thought that I got obsessed with the idea of "Avatar Soundtrack" CD precisely in these dates... a year later... eh?

The "Na'vi again!" part is a curious & even funny coincidence. But it happened not a year, but half a year ago - & half a year after Avatar. Hm... right in the middle!
I signed up for AF in July, from the depths of PAD, and almost immediately got a job offer. Since I was not too active anyway, I thought of maybe unsubscribing, & maybe getting serious for a change, & maybe getting my head out of clouds & my feet on the ground, & maybe this, maybe that.... in short, why don't I become a perfectly "normal" piece of the machinery of the society.

I started in September. The first day, I go to the office, meet the people, get shown my desk, the usual. Then a programmer girl comes to me and says: "Let me tell you something about the Navi". ... ... ... I stare. The look of me is best described with "You should see your face(s)!" I honestly just stare blankly with no thoughts but "WHAT!?"

It turned out that NAVI - NAVISION - is the database & as a translator I am supposed to check it, edit it, revise it, & do whatever a good translator does. The girl explained lots, it seemed very complicated but I guess I wasn't really listening - I just couldn't. To let my mind go blank wasn't hard for me... ... ....

Next step, she shows me the icon - a half Na'vi blue, half dark blue square, with "NAVI" in caps under it!

I finally managed to think: "Hm... I think I'll stay in the forums for a while!"

So it was more or less what Alan said once: "The most amazing revelations find us when we expect them the least ", or something like this, sorry I don't remember exactly.

(only today I noticed that there are some tiny white dots on the icon, too! Goody! Sometimes I see this icon & think it's the link to ToS and then I click on it & see... well... something else... ). But it's like a reminder that sits on my screen & looks at me every day...

So, yes. The NAVI (s) are here to stay!

@Fosus: mmm the office crew is mostly skypeople, so my human avatar driver is still trying to figure out how to survive in the concrete jungle... :O

@Advent: yeah, think of it! I was actually trying to disconnect from Avatar cos the PAD was too much, & I was feeling too alone... And where do Avatar/Na'vi find me & tune me back? Precisely at work! Whoah!!

ok, I hear you, fair enough - you have the same feelings & desires caused by Avatar as a year ago. But - did any change happen in your world vision, your attitudes (action, thinking, feeling), in habits/ hobbies?

since I've asked you so many questions I might as well answer as far as I am concerned (briefly & randomly):

1. I really took to barefoot walks (inspired by this forum) - & I do get to feel myself as "a part of the forest".
2. I found this forum! where I feel myself for a change - & it's great!!!
3. I remembered to thank plants & animals (& All Mother) for the food, or other service like healing or even clothing me. I already learnt it from Don Juan's Teachings, but then for some reason I left it - Avatar reminded me.
4. I had some extremely powerful Pandora meditations & dreams that guide me thru this life on this planet in this body - this only invites me to meditate more regularly & see what glimpse I get this time.
5. I got a Pandora Blueskin T-Shirt that I am proudly wearing right now!
6. I have some great new friends from this forum whom I never saw physically but we SEE each other.
7. I go thru the forest - or anywhere - with eyes wide open & ears pricked up (so to speak) & try to notice the beauty in everything, even a cloud, or somebody in a bright dress, whatever - "my today's dose of beauty".
8. I also got an "Avatar CD, finally!" that I am going to listen to right now!
9. I also got an Avatar CE collection, & all this material Avatar stuff is a bit of Pandora I have here, I can see it, touch it & watch it (even lick it if I feel like)

This is not bad! I might add more later on.

PS on May 16, 7:27 am Spanish time: this is only scratching the surface... I haven't even mentioned how i LOVE Avatar - but I need more time & the right words & inspiration to express this! Maybe later....
