Karra; How are you doing?
Russ; Quite well.
How was the trip to Sirius? Work, work, work?
Karra; Yes it was, though I did enjoy the
last two days. I had a good time watching the
races but the rest of the time I had a very busy
schedule. At least for that time I had a chance to
cheer on our team.
R; Well you did
have these new responsibilities. Did you get a
chance to work with the new president and the
Karra; Yes, working with the president,
other ambassadors, another newly appointed
ambassador talking with the outgoing ambassadors,
ambassadors that had been retired for a long time,
basically it was a learning seminar, also a get to
know you seminar.
R; Well I'm sure
you gained a lot of experience from being around
the other ambassadors?
Karra; Well it gave me a bit an
opportunity to talk to a lot of people about a lot
of different matters, how to do a lot of things
associated with my duties and I was given some
very useful advice. I was made to realise that
even though Hades Base is important as all
ambassadorial residences are, Hades Base is not
high on the list of priorities for Sirius, that my
problems are minor compared to some other
problems, though to me they seem insurmountable.
R; Well there are
some fun things of being an ambassador isn't
Karra; Oh yes.
R; Well you do
represent the base in essence. Do people come to
you with problems?
Karra; Yes, and I try to deal with them
the best that I can. A lot of the time I work with
people that have come to the base for the first
time and have started to miss their home or
wherever they came from. I often hear, " I miss
home, I miss being able to walk out under the
stars on a moonlit night and feel the breeze. That
the holo's that I have in my suite don't feel as
real. I know that they're holo's and not real." So
I have to do some psychological work and I have to
explain a lot of things and talk them through
R; Wouldn't a time
spent down at Dolphin Lake do a lot of good for
Karra; Well for some yes and for some no.
Take Kiri for example. Kiri and myself grew up in
the mountains. Dolphins and the ocean were never
part of our lives. Teen and Treen come from a hot
environment and that's different from what can be
found here also. Their apartment is kept at about
eighty five degrees. Most people arrive on the
base and work for a year to a year and a half
before they get a full travel right to go back to
Sirius. Then they go back for a week or two weeks
before returning here to begin their regular
cycle. That is unless of course you are fortunate
enough to be able to cut a deal and stand the
discomfiture of doing a high parabola jump.
R; Can't people
astral travel back to Sirius if you happen to be
strong in that gift?
Karra; Yes they can, but as you are aware,
it's not quite as good as the real thing.
R; Unless you're as
good as Mark of course.
Karra; Yes, Mr. Show Off. Now they're are
people here as good as Mark just as there are
vastly superior Manifestors and healers. It just
depends on their field of expertise. Most of the
people that are the higher developed astral
travellers tend to do a lot of work in the
research departments where they're alone a lot of
the time. Any other questions my dear?
R; No love.
Karra; OK, see you dear.
