    Our brains are amazing and mysterious organs @Sara Jacobovici! When I think of seeing with my skin, it makes me think of when I step outside for one- and I feel the breeze against my skin. For some reason when I feel the breeze my mind sees butterflies, the ocean, kids playing (maybe that's just memories that hit me?). I do feel energy and I'm not sure where that comes from. I can feel positive and negative energy as soon as I walk into a room. The video was amazing too!

    we cannot see Atom, yet we strongly accept its presence through our brain indeed, but it is a complex process, being contradicted before accepting this belief through external methodology, which resulted an inference by experimentation and there after accepted by brain. so the vision of brain also develops through a process of continuous transformation and change and that also being time to time converted from qualitative to quantitative. however, intriguing content indeed @Sara Jacobovici! enjoyed read. thank you for the share madam.

    whole-body perceiving machines - this does make sense if we think of our development as an embryo represented in the form of disciplines like acupuncture, hand and foot reflexology, and the concept of the cortical homunculus where a map of body regions is depicted in size proportionally across the brain. Our body parts are inter-related in many ways.

    I have long been aware of feeling sounds, mostly in the form of unwanted vibrations, such as sounds from heavy construction machinery that cannot be masked via sound volume in my own vicinity because the vibrations are felt more than actually heard.

    #15 Thanks for your contribution @Deb🐝 Lange. Throughout your comment, the word safety was going through my head. That powerful last word's energy was felt from the beginning.

    A quick response : trust for me is a sense of wholeness & connectedness to everything. Trust feels grounded. Trust feels like I can lie down and I am safe and I can rest well. Trust feels like I am free to express anything as long as I am not hurting others - & I am accepted just the way I am & just the way I am not. Trust gives me permission to be excited, to cry, to dance a silly walk, to ask "dumb"questions, to be intimate, to sense freedom, to sense the darkness, to walk a tight rope, and when I truly sense trust i am safe.

    "Choose to drink from the endless source of trust and life will never let you down". A great quote by @Liesbeth Leysen, MSc. Brand Ambassador beBee, Inc.. I recall now the book of @Deb🐝 Lange on Trust Your Senses. It is all trust. It cleans our minds and hearts. Thank you dear @Sara Jacobovici for continuing highlighting these lovely quotes and inviting authors to expand on them.

    #9 It is very true that if we doubt ourselves, how can we be open minded enough and free enough to constructively apply doubt in an innovative or factual way. When doubt is made of the construct of fear it is a terrible and destructive thing, but when doubt is an instrument of learning, then the probing, exploring and learning we do with that instrument makes doubt a toolbox and not a statement of our own identity. Our emotions are also toolboxes that nature gave us - but have we have become the tool. Emotion is a beautiful thing as a spectrum but only if it does not lose its light.
    Sara Jacobovici
    17/03/2017 #9 Sara Jacobovici
    #8 Perfectly said @CityVP 🐝 Manjit. There is doubt that leads to questioning and so we grow and thrive, as you describe. Unfortunately there is the "psychological" doubt that @Liesbeth Leysen, MSc. Brand Ambassador beBee, Inc. describes. When we begin to lose our sense of security, not feel grounded in our sense of self, then, "Doubts can destroy the quality of life."

    Ode to a Poet

    A touch of imagination
    A bit of inspiration
    A tad of ideation
    Sparking creation

    A spot of time to spend
    A message to send
    A thought to lend
    A chance to pretend

    A mind puzzle to link
    A spirit to think
    There is no brink

    Hi, @Sonny Melendez. I enjoyed your article on the word Happy. Though could you, please clarify the following sentence: - In fact, the majority of European words for “happy” at first meant lucky, with the exception of Welsh, where word meant wise.". When you say European words, you mean only to the English language spoken in the UK, right? Because in the other languages spoken in the EU the word to express happiness actually means Happy.

    language true is a unique means of communication and it is equally in the continuous process of evolving. different country having different socio economic fabric and language also equally evolved. i have observed in a factory, workers are making effective signals to communicate within themselves and as owing to tremendous sound in the factory, their reflexes are equally evolved. even in our daily life we may use plenty of words which are traditionally being used and being carried on generation after generation, virtually ingrained in our reflex. we seldom ponder seriously about its pragmatic value. however, lovely insight @Lance Scoular! enjoyed read. thank you for the share.

    @Lance 🐝 Scoular- I am sharing this beautiful buzz for it contains great wisdom. I ask myself sometimes it is less or more or less and more together? I try to avoid separation thinking because it limits our choices.
    You brilliantly showed why less is more. I have experienced myself that the less time I have, the more I am productive. People need as much time as you give them. We only then increase their slack time and giving more time means getting less work done.

    I enjoyed reading your buzz immensely.

    The level of our understanding is not relevant to communicating within the sophistication of our audience. I tend to be overtly entrusted to the most complicated possibility yet when discovering the solution it presents itself with grating simplicity. The glass is half empty or half full. Is it refillable or do you get a different sized glass? Oh the possibilities ............

This does shape our choices and behaviours. Culture is also a factor that influences the meanings or expressions. Individual experiences also influence the meaning. My mother's eastern European culture of her generation put much value on more; more education, more titles, more money, "the more the better". In the movie Rhapsody in Blue (1945), a biography of the American composer and musician George Gershwin, the father always asks Gershwin how many pages is his latest composition. When he gets the answer, the father repeats the number and says, "A very important piece".

    Senses knew no boundaries as depicted by science or certain benchmarks being set. Great writers uses senses very well because they are well aware that there exist more than in actual terms what the world thinks. It would be fun to share more about senses. I wish you luck, @Sara Jacobovici

    My words are is "senses " Sensory sensing - I am a little obsessed by them - I sense a response to all the thinking in the world, all the abstractions that are devoid of humanity, and the constant focus on the brain as if that is the seat of our intelligence! Words are powerful ! Why do we use the words "seat of our intelligence?" Unless intelligence is housed in

    Time, time. There is no time. There is no time, for this rhyme.

    Great post, Sara. As I age, I find myself contemplating the fleeting nature of time much more than in my youth. Quite possibly it could be because at 49, I am relatively certain that I have more life in the rear view mirror than in the windshield, and because it takes me longer to do EVERYTHING than it did 25 years ago. Or perhaps it's that, thanks to the internet, I finally appreciate how little I know of worldly issues and events and contraptions, and now find all of it so interesting. I am constantly distracted with new pursuits.

    I recall a conversation with my grandfather during late August when I was 13 years old, and I was waxing melancholy over how quickly summer had passed. I believe that he was in his late 50's at the time, and his response was simply "Wait 'til you are my age."

    36 years later, I finally understand what he meant.

    #32 Well, Max, on occasion you have a tendency to take on a tone of lecturing. And this style makes it hard to respond.

    We are all adding to discussions of our own free will and we should each do so without expectations of any specific response. A person might do a quick reply because of family obligations, for example, or simply be in a happy mood and not want to take apart the entire history of science - at that particular moment in time :)

    I firmly believe that using a word like ignoring is a judgment that diverges from the attempt to keep this a community free of bullying - as you so often advocate for. Your addition to the conversation was respectfully acknowledged. Your follow-ups feel accusatory based on some other situation and that is the opposite of dwelling in the right now.

    I believe we've established that there is room for everything on beBee and that we are all free to scroll on past things that don't resonate with us, at any point in time, as long as we are respectful.

    Thank you @Cristina 🐝 López Hara for your share. I offer an invitation to contribute in Spanish:
    Tengo una colmena llamada, “What words mean to me”.

    Cada Miércoles, publicaré la/s palabra/s de la semana. Será hecho a partir de todos los mensajes privados que reciba antes de cada Lunes. Esta invitación la compartiremos fuera de beBee en tantos idiomas como sea posible, así que la/s palabra/s, serán publicadas en el idioma de origen. Os pediría que todos nosotros usemos el mismo formato de dos partes: la primera parte la palabra, y la segunda parte lo que la palabra significa para mí.

    For example, I will start us off with the word, affinity.
    La primera parte la palabra: Affinity is defined as:
    1. A spontaneous or natural liking or sympathy for someone or something.
    2. A similarity of characteristics suggesting a relationship, especially a resemblance in structure between animals, plants, or languages.
    3. The degree to which a substance tends to combine with another.
    Que la palabra significa para mí. What this word means to me.
    As an active member of beBee, the word affinity has been introduced into my life as I had never had the opportunity to use it before. Now I feel like I experience affinity, I am connecting spontaneously with a number of people and their ideas. I feel that I am relating in a meaningful way with others. And increasingly more now, I have been combining my writing and sharing with learning and meeting.
    Quiero pediros e invitaros a enviarme una palabra que tenga un significado especial para tí.

    #24 Your comments are enriching @Deb 🐝 Helfrich. Your words and ideas flow from beginning to end. I will use your concluding statement as a possible springboard. You write: "Even when what we know seems perfectly aligned with reality "out there", it is folly to become too attached to what we know in this particular moment." It makes me think that the folly is in attaching to an illusion that we then carry over, "holding on" to something that we believe to be right and then preventing ourselves from continuing to see what's out there. This is where I would use the idea of being "in the moment"; be aware of what is happening, how it makes you feel, understand that it is part of a whole, and in this way move on.

    10/02/2017 #25 Max🐝 J. Carter
    Time is a fable and human construct of the imagination to make sense of why it gets light and dark and why the weather changes and why we change. It doesn't actually exist.

    This is part of the unlearning that has to be done in order to live now and achieve higher levels of understanding and conscious level awareness.

    When you step outside 3d to 4d it's infinite space. Time only exists in our minds because we all agree to live the lie of time. In 4d space everything that has ever happened and will ever happen in infinite realities exists simultaneously. Just a fact of existence. Not a popular one because it destroys all the science that is based on the lie of time.

    All language is metaphorical and we all tie different metaphors to different words based on experience.

    As a Shaman it;s my job to understand these things and I put a lot of work into it over my life studying both physics and everything else.

    As a conduit for wisdom straight from source, god, the universal consciousness or whatever helps you sleep you netter I can assure this is fact and not opinion.

    I have spent years making sure I can trust that as well.

    The "shift" we are going through on our world is about ripping back the veil and learning what the real truth is.

    You can find a lot of reading material that supports every word of this comment.

    #21 #22 Fantastically composed thesis, @Sara Jacobovici. It is an interesting conundrum as we do understand at some level that our objective reality is filtered through a very subjective lens; but we often behave in very rigid ways demanding that others acknowledge our perceptions as 'fact'

    The Black Swan metaphor is brilliant at coalescing this point, as it only ever takes one outlier occurrence. And we rely too heavily on the small timeframes of our human lives, along with our confirmation bias.

    Most people would guarantee that I will see the sun rise in the East tomorrow. But those folks don't live in Seattle. I first moved here in December one year. I would have sworn that one could not see Mount Rainer from the city. For almost 60 days I knew this to be a fact. And then one day, the clouds cleared and I was astounded.

    To be fully alive, we have to stay cognizant of that awareness that our bodies come equipped with only a limited set of perceptual apparati (What a perfect illustration! If I want to create a cool plural of apparatus - I can do so, strict grammatical rules aside, as long as the context of meaning is accurate)

    Even when what we know seems perfectly aligned with reality "out there", it is folly to become too attached to what we know in this particular moment.

    #11 Part Two: When an individual is urged to “use their common sense” there is an assumption that the meaning of the action or even judgment of the person doing the urging is understood by the individual being urged and is in sync with their own drive to survive. Immanuel Kant, in his Critique of Judgment (1987), states: "[W]e must [here] take sensus communis to mean the idea of a sense shared [by all of us], i.e., a power to judge that in reflecting takes account (a priori), in our thought, of everyone else's way of presenting [something], in order as it were to compare our own judgment with human reason in general... Now we do this as follows: we compare our judgment not so much with the actual as rather with the merely possible judgments of others, and [thus] put ourselves in the position of everyone else..." So…what I am trying to say again is, you’re right @Deb 🐝 Helfrich; my sense of time is not your sense of time, but together we share a common sense. Metaphors are the language we use to communicate with each other and share what our individual sense “feels” like.
    Sara Jacobovici
    09/02/2017 #21 Sara Jacobovici
    #11 Part One: You are right on @Deb 🐝 Helfrich. Our perceptions are based on the sensory input we process and experience. The objective laws of nature were developed by people who observed and perceived nature differently from their predecessors. Human beings are referred to as “sentient”. Sentient is defined as “having sensation or feeling”. As sentient beings, in order for us to feel, perceive and experience, we are dependent on our senses. From individual perceptions we then expand to communal or common perceptions. My red is not your red but we need to have to have a common enough representation for us, as individuals, to survive in the community. In his book The Psychology of Consciousness, Robert Ornstein (1972) states: "Ordinary consciousness is each individual’s own private construction. This insight has been more elegantly expressed by philosophers and poets. Alfred North Whitehead said: Nature gets credit which in truth should be reserved for ourselves, the rose for its scent, the nightingale for his song, and the sun for its radiance. The poets are entirely mistaken. They should address their lyrics to themselves and should turn them into odes of self-congratulations on the excellence of the human mind. Nature is a dull affair, soundless, scentless, colorless, merely the hurrying of material, endlessly, meaninglessly." So...not only do we each have our individual scent of the rose, but our own red. In other words, both the subjective and the objective are subjectively perceived.

    Part Two: When an individual is urged to “use their common sense” there is an assumption that the meaning of the action or even judgment of the person doing the urging is understood by the individual being urged and is in sync with their own drive to survive. Immanuel Kant, in his Critique of Judgment (1987), states: "[W]e must [here] take sensus communis to mean the idea of a sense shared [by all of us], i.e., a power to judge that in reflecting takes account (a priori), in our thought, of everyone else's way of presenting [something], in order as it were to compare our own judgment with human reason in general... Now we do this as follows: we compare our judgment not so much with the actual as rather with the merely possible judgments of others, and [thus] put ourselves in the position of everyone else..." So…what I am trying to say again is, you’re right @Deb 🐝 Helfrich; my sense of time is not your sense of time, but together we share a common sense. Metaphors are the language we use to communicate with each other and share what our individual sense “feels” like.
    Sara Jacobovici
    09/02/2017 #16 Sara Jacobovici
    #11 Part One: You're right on @Deb 🐝 Helfrich. Our perceptions are based on the sensory input we process and experience. The objective laws of nature were developed by people who observed and perceived nature differently from their predecessors. Human beings are referred to as “sentient”. Sentient is defined as “having sensation or feeling”. As sentient beings, in order for us to feel, perceive and experience, we are dependent on our senses. But….in his book The Psychology of Consciousness, Robert Ornstein (1972) states: Ordinary consciousness is each individual’s own private construction. This insight has been more elegantly expressed by philosophers and poets. Alfred North Whitehead said: Nature gets credit which in truth should be reserved for ourselves, the rose for its scent, the nightingale for his song, and the sun for its radiance. The poets are entirely mistaken. They should address their lyrics to themselves and should turn them into odes of self-congratulations on the excellence of the human mind. Nature is a dull affair, soundless, scentless, colorless, merely the hurrying of material, endlessly, meaninglessly…” Both the subjective and the objective are subjectively perceived; the rose, not only for its scent but for its color. My red is not your red. But we have to have a “common sense” of red in order for us individuals, who are dependent on our community, to survive.

    I dedicate this buzz to Dr. Ali Anani and the shared journey of personal growth, which I know Sara Jacobovici would join me in whole hearted support, both of us have been enriched by his presence both at LinkedIn and here at beBee. re: @Ali Anani @Sara Jacobovici

    In the early days before Ali Anani and Sara Jacobovici got to know me at LinkedIn, I engaged in a way of writing that is absolutely not what anyone should do if they are more invested in maintaining a personal brand, which was streams of consciousness. I would write furiously and without inhibition, inspired by the way one writer wrote his work. His name was Jack Kerouac.

    As I now look further into stream of consciousness writing, what seemed so natural to let forth at LinkedIn and before in other networks, streams of consciousness apparently has a far greater and interesting background than I had ever realized - because I did not study "streams of consciousness" I merely did it. When I go back now and read these streams I must admit that sometimes even I don't understand what poured forth but I know that it came from my consciousness, and thus it had far greater metacognitive value i.e. [the act of thinking about my thinking].

    Now I am in a position to study it, it makes for fascinating reading :

    #3 Dear Pamela [ @Pamela 🐝 Williams ] the chief reason I dedicate this to @Ali Anani is that when I was pouring out comments that were as much a page or page-half in length at LinkedIn, he was always appreciative, because he could see that there was a thinker behind those screeds. Ultimately as a writing style, it is a different type of excellence that can move it from brainfart to braincraft. Let things flow but be conscious that you have let things flow. I received greater criticism when I wrote a one-line blog called One under the name "Mark Zorro"

After time my sister will realize it did have meaning.

    Couldn't be more honoured to be part of this Triad; @Ali Anani, yourself, @CityVP 🐝 Manjit and myself. Your post and share are true gifts to the readers and learners.

    In my clinical work, you often see individuals with severe mental health challenges writing or talking incessantly; literally streams and streams of consciousness. The majority of mental health professionals would identify this as a symptom of thought disorders. I have always experienced this as an expression of their thoughts, a language I needed to learn, to understand. Once I read it and heard it, as their expression and communication of their consciousness, their experiences, it all made sense! In the hands of writers, this is a technique. In the hands of those who are suffering, this is a lifeline.

    #1 When it comes to studying, it is important to differentiate that we don't study it in the moment but we must study or at least appreciate it afterwards - that is why I put a huge stress mark on developing the skills of metacognition.

    Otherwise stream of consciousness becomes an exercise in lazy thinking, temporal novelty or just downright mediocrity. The laziness that it affords (where laziness is intelligent) is to free the tyranny of control, but the mining of it, that is when the work begins - especially if the origin is not from a well-spring of experience.

    The great writers had already absorbed (one can also say stolen in a good way) a great body and variety of experiences and then they have so much that laying it out as a stream of consciousness is what the 10 writers link is about - so what they pour forth in gusto already has a source which is rich in depth. Here I do put the emphasis on "great writers" for at that level streams of consciousness is equal to their wonderous talent.

    Lettered squares, on the keyboard rattle…
    Crafting tales, of pleasure and battle.

    A major peril, lurking with each stroke…
    Is an unclear tone, that leaves intention broke.

    For the very same words, can have different meaning…
    Depending on where, the emphasis is leaning.

    I have seen a few comments, raise prodigious ire…
    As uncertain gist, leaves much to be desired.

    This I have learned, from @Susan Rooks

    What a great poem and good timing with this! My favorite part (well I enjoyed the entire poem) "Words can do so many things,

    Give us wings or pull our strings.

    When we carefully choose our words,

    We can melt an army's swords. "

    We've all used words we do regret
    It's a learning curve at times, I bet.

    AFFINITY

    Affinity has been described by Sara

    What this word means to me:

    Affinity is the word I identified with when beBee introduced it to me - today I link it to A-Players. I can see that a part of what I call my "workable life".

    The opposite for me of Affinity is Bozo

    Bozo is the word Steve Jobs identified to describe the kind leadership that are B-Players, the kind organizations hires that dumb down their organization down, Steve Jobs last instruction to the Apple Board was to ensure Apple hire A-Players.. This is what I personally want to avoid and what I also call an element of the "branded life".

    A word that has meaning to me is

    CONTRIBUTION

    Contribution is defined as :
    1. A gift or payment to a common fund or collection.
    2. The part played by a person or thing in bringing about a result or helping something to advance.
    3. An article or other piece of writing submitted for publication in a collection.
    4. See What this Words Means to Me

    What this word means to me: Is how William Hewlett and David Packard defined the word CONTRIBUTION :

    HP Way: CONTRIBUTION.
    Do our products offer something unique—be it a technical contribution, a level of quality, a problem solved—to our customers? Are the communities in which we operate stronger and the lives of our employees better than they would be without us? Are people's lives improved because of what we do? If the answer to any these questions is "no," then Packard and Hewlett would deem HP a failure, no matter how much money the company returned to its shareholders.

    @Sara Jacobovici my favourite word is Serendipity. It means Serendipity means a "fortunate happenstance" or "pleasant surprise". It was coined by Horace Walpole in 1754. In a letter he wrote to a friend, Walpole explained an unexpected discovery he had made by reference to a Persian fairy tale, The Three Princes of Serendip. it was first used in 1754. The princes, he told his correspondent, were "always making discoveries, by accidents and sagacity, of things which they were not in quest of". The notion of serendipity is a common occurrence throughout the history of scientific innovation such as Alexander Fleming's accidental discovery of penicillin in 1928, the invention of the microwave oven by Percy Spencer in 1945, and the invention of the Post-it note by Spencer Silver in 1968.

    The reasons I love the word Serendipity is that not only does it sound great tripping off your tongue, you can almost guess the meaning of the word from the way it sounds. I love the concept of happy coincidences and I have seen the ripples of serendipitous meetings and discoveries throughout my life. In fact I doubt I would be living in SA if I hadn't met a chap called Glen Peck in London in 1996 and I don't think I would be following my dream of being an architectural designer if I hadn't met Gary Pereira in 2002/3.

    The secret, I feel, to beBee as we grow the site to the many millions it will soon have, is to remember to reshare.

    Painting pictures with words so that they reel in the attention of our readers, as they flit like butterflies from post to post, is indeed an art form, Rod. At the opposite end of the spectrum, staying awake while reading, through necessity, a technical report, a specification, or a contract document, is a challenge.

    One of the endearing things I have found about common language 'word users' in my adopted Land of Oz is a healthy and liberal use of the idiom, coupled with the intriguing veil of the metaphor, and a vicious application of the 'tall poppy' syndrome which, through sarcasm, reminds us that our communications with our readers should be clear and concise.

    Welcome back into the light, Rod, where entertaining words, proffered in the spirit of clarity and conciseness, are rewarded here on beBee, with engagement and eventual affinity between bees. Many of us chose to come across into the light from the Dark Side, because our words over there were disappearing like water droplets in sand dunes, faster than any potential followers could dig. Take a deep breath through your nose. What you are smelling is delicious honey being produced.

    Mohammed, I have read some writers who regularly use big words and I feel like they are trying to impress me, rather than entice or enthral me. Your image of a garden of weeds really rings true when reading those pieces. You are right about a writer (and all creative artists) needing to create several positive impressions, before a reader begins to allow themselves to become a fan #13

    So true Devesh. We all paint pictures in the minds of others. But when trust is broken, those pictures take on a completely different meaning, as you have said. #12

    Harvey, here's a story you might enjoy.

    Ink Me

    The page stares back at me, expectantly.

    “Ink me,” it demands, lying before me. “But not with the scribbles of a child, or the harsh, ignorant strokes of the careless. You say you’re a professional, now is your time to prove it.”

    My mind becomes as blank as the pale skin my eyes survey.

    Images created before could not be repeated. They were old, used and etched into the paleness of others.

    Imagination releases a thought, which swirls and expands, longing to be shown.

    “You’re going to love this,” I whisper excitedly, picking up my pen. “It’s beautiful.”

    If only it were just smoke an mirrors at LI, @Pascal Derrien. The latest "upgrade" is terrible. In the first two days I've read a number of Premium members saying they would not be renewing. #9

    @Rod Loader.Words are shadows of the writer's feeling and thoughts.Saying big long words without a good image means little things.it's like painting a garden full of weeds.If you change the environment of your words,certainly a totally different picture would emerge .it's not the subject and the event that count but the visual impression as caught at a certain time and reflects the best shadow of your feelings.You need several impressions and several manipulations in reader's mind too to change their perceptions.Thank you for sharing your impessive and well manipulated poems.Welcome at beBee,the most suitable platform to convey your feeling and enhance your poetry instinct and Loader Writing that cultivate deeds,not weeds.

    A word can mean anything, one has to develop a context.

    You have seen the good in imagery and impact. This will motivate many people.

    Just that sometimes one enjoys wordplay so much that they underestimate others who do the same.

    I went to the opposite direction. In a professional sense,. I witnessed a majority of people misuse this skill, project a desirable, speak a deliverable and secure business.

    But wherever legal liability was avoided, even avoid the deliverable.

    Conclusion it's good for a first impression but it is best to explain stuff there itself, realisation may dawn anytime.

    Showcasing it and then explaining oneself adds to the trust factors, exactly the way you have explained right now.

    I look forward to reading more of your posts.

    If a picture is worth a thousand words then a memory is worth millions. A writer has the chance to paint so many pictures within their exploits. The canvas they seek to write on, is mine. Clearly i have a choice to make my canvas available but sometimes i just have to see where it goes.

    Yours is worthy of the art you have painted. Memories are something that a synapse is given over too. Be wise in your writing but more importantly give those synapse over with guarded optimism.

    The five day count down to 2017 has started and I thought I would share five of my favourite memes. I find them wonderful reminders as I find my way.

    What an important reminder @Graham🐝 Edwards; the sound of courage needs to be experienced, not necessarily heard.

    @Graham🐝 Edwards, excellent -- and proves wisdom does not have to come in a sickly-sweet coating. Will watch for your other four pearls... Cheers!
