The world finally makes sense, and our physical bodies have disappeared, now we're just auras (if you will). As an aura, you can only carry a small amount of baggage. Whenever you bump into another aura this is all they see to get to know you. It's, their first impression, so to speak.
You can carry: 1 scent 1 taste 1 color 1 dream you had (as in, nocturnal) 1 aspiration you have 2 pictures 2 memories
What do you carrY?

Very kewl topic. Hmmm...this is a tough one though.
You can carry: 1 scent - prolly the scent of fresh baked bread, hehe, i love it soo much. 1 taste - shortbread cookies 1 color - blue 1 dream you had - this weird one about lorna doone and trainspotting 1 aspiration you have - to sing and act 2 pictures - one of my whole family, and one with my friends all together 2 memories - when me and my friends were all hangin out at my friend, anthony's, all together when me and my family all went to mexico and were all together.

What do you carrY?
Scent: That would have to be the smell of my favorite shampoo, Freeman Color Dance in auburn-colored. It smells great.
Taste: I think I would have, hmm.. the taste of blood. My own blood.
Dream: Once I had a strange dream involving several elements from video games, the neighborhood I'm moving to in half a year, and large, open fields. It was strange and pretty nifty. I'd say that.
Aspiration: To be a singer outside of my bedroom/shower. :) I don't necessarily have to be particularly famous, just want people to be able to know through my singing what goes on in my heart.
Pictures: First would be a picture of me in my bikini, the picture in which the sunset is turning my hair a really pretty color and my face is slightly shadowed. Oh, and my butt looks great in that picture too.. I just like that. The other picture would be one of both my boyfriend and me.. I wish such a picture existed now, but we're a bit too far away from each other to get any pics of us together.
Memories: Falling in love with Matt, and a single-memory archive of every poem I've ever written. :)
------------------ "Oh my hero, so far away now.. will I ever see your smile? Love goes away, like night into day.. it's just a fading dream.." -aria de mezzo carattere
The smell of roses fresh from the garden, having been picked in the morning with drops of dew still on the leaves
The taste of cool water running down my throat after a hot day out in the sun
The color of newly-fallen, un-printed snow covering an entire hillside and coating the evergreens and the leafless trees alike with a cold frosting
A dream I had recurringly when I was younger, of being surrounded on all sides by people criticizing me, and then just flying away over their heads...I didn't know I could fly, and then the rest of the dream devotes itself to my attemts to learn how to fly again.
The image of my brother and me, him in a black tuxedo with a forest green bowtie and me in a navy princess skirt with a shiny white top, onstage at Carnegie Hall, as both performers and accompanists
A picture of a dear friend of mine who I haven't seen since September
The last full-family picture that was taken at our las family reunion
The memory of the first man I ever loved
The memory of the first time someone told me I was beautiful
That should give my fellow auras a rather good look at the inner me.

*The smell of a forest after rain. *The taste of snow. *Green *The only dream I remember clearly is one I had when I was feverish. I was a medic inside a GI Joe cartoon. It doesn't make much sense, but neither do I. *To be happy *1 picture of my dog and 1 picture of my old dog *Christmas Eve 3 years ago. For the second memory, sledding with my friends.

my lover's scent on my skin the taste of real coconut milk a lite hue of greenish blue, with fleck of lilac (what, you wanted a wavelength for that color? okay, it's somewhere in the 600nm range) that dream of holding him down and kissing him, and running till i felt like it was flying, yet not going anywhere hope for enlightenment a good picture of me (so that i can remember what i looked like), and a picture of the ocean that elation i felt at the Underworld concert; the relief, joy, love, fear, sadness, confusion i felt the last time my boyfriend and i had a big fight and when we subsequently reconciled.
1 scent- the smell of grass or trees after a rainstorm
1 taste- ambrosia
1 color- a kind of bright grey-y pink

2 memories- none really. i guess there could be some from when i was little.

1 dream you had: The one I had where this man (dressed like a thief) came into a farmhouse my family were staying in.

------------------ "Never knock on Death's door. Ring the doorbell and run!"

2 pictures - My favorite picture of my friends at a boat show a few months ago that somehow perfectly showed every one of our personalities. The one I have of my kitty that I took a few weeks before putting her to sleep where she's drooling her medicine all over the couch, because it showed that even when the tummy cancer had her throwing up everywhere and she had brown gooey medicine pouring from her mouth, she was the cutest thing I'd ever seen.
2 memories - Spending several hours just sitting in a friend's car, talking about anything and everything, feeling the closest I'd ever felt to anyone. The ways my dad showed he loved me and cared for me after I moved out of the house.

Hey Gaffer, we all should be taking along the Hitch Hiker's Guide...and a towel...how else will we survive the universe? It's the ultimate instruction manuel!
Now, for my answers...
1 scent - my lovers skin 1 taste - tears 1 color - the exact dark blue of the sky at home on a clear night when the moon is full and there's a million stars 1 dream - the one where the dragon let me ride along with it and then taught me how to fly on my own...I'll never forget how to fly 1 aspiration - to learn to love without reservation, forgive completely, and live life to the fullest 2 pictures - (a) my family, (b) my boy and I from this summer 2 memories - (a) that time between first and third grade when I did indian princesses with my dad, (b) when my boy walked off the plane and kissed me
Wow, that was actually harder than I thought it would be...and it made me almost a bit sad for some reason.
1 scent-That slightly stale mix of cigarette smoke and alcohol that reminds me of good nights and amazing people. (That's from a teetotal non-smoker by the way!)
1 taste-A good, dark chocolate when I'm feeling down.
1 color-Purple. Probably the pale purple of a hazy sunset.
1 dream you had (as in, nocturnal)-I don't think I've ever had a really good dream. Not that I remember anyway. Hmm.. there's an extra reason to start a dream diary.
1 aspiration you have-To travel the world (I mean the whole world, not just the nice, clean, pretty bits). I don't know how ths would work if it's a brand new world though.
2 pictures-One of my cat. I don't know why, he smells and he's not very nce to me. One of me picking flowers as a 3 year old. I love that photo. There's no one who's so important in my life that I feel I would beneft from carrying their picture. Which is quite sad I suppose.
2 memories-My first kiss and the tingly feeling that went with it. Lying under a sleeping bag in a field in France watching shooting stars with a friend and three blokes we'd just met who were on a trip round Europe. That was a very good night, and I've never seen so many stars. We stayed up all night and watched dawn break. Then they heped us take our tent down and we somehow managed to make it to the ferry port and get back to rainy old England. I wish I hadn't bothered-I could have stayed there for ever.
This is is my first experiment wth UBB code so I hope it works!
Edited because my keyboard is somewhat broken.
------------------ You wanna save humanity, it's just the people you can't stand-John Lennon
Witness the infinite justice of the new century. Civilians starving to death whilst waiting to be killed.
1 scent- laundry right out of the dryer. 1 taste- the taste of warm sweet apple cider. that's one of my favorite things about this time of year, the apple cider... 1 color- deep blue, like the color of the sky at that pivital moment right after it gets dark. 1 dream you had (as in, nocturnal)- that freaky@ss one with the tornado and the talking deer, oi. o_o; 1 aspiration you have- to touch people's hearts with my art, somehow 2 pictures- a picture of all my friends, and a picture of my painting that was put in a museum-type place downtown. 2 memories- running screaming through the alleys downtown with 2 of my friends... i'll never forget the rush of adrenaline and feeling of freedom that gave me. also a sleepover about 2 years ago with my best friend- we stayed up nearly all night talking about love...
------------------ i was thinking that i might fly today just to disprove all the things that you say
*scent- the smell of the back of my guy's neck, i dunno why (maybe it's phermonal?) but he just smells really good to me when he's clean but not squeakily so and not wearing any colone. *taste-the taste my mouth has when i'm not tasting anything. i read once that everyone's "resting taste" is different, so i'd keep mine. *color- that electric blue that the sky turns about an hour or so after sunset. it's kind of a thalo/prussian blue with some paynes grey. *dream- i dunno, i don't remember many really. *aspiration- to figure out how to be happy without working 60+ hrs a week. *2 pictures-fight club and brazil...oh, pictures, van gough's starry night and one of me, dan, jaqui and eddie being a human totom pole, taken right before we fell in a heap on the ground. *2 memories-the one where someone asked me what i wanted to be when i grew up and i screamed and cried and said "i want to be corinne when i grow up" and the one of the moment where i figured out i'd managed to do just that.
love this topic by the way 'rin
