    The Guardian for this meeting was Scathach Rhiadra. The comments are hers.

    When I arrived at the pavilion Corvi was already there, as was Bertrum whom I had not met before, although he has attended PaB sessions in the past.  We were quickly joined by Adelene in a beautiful bird avatar.....

    Corvuscorva Nightfire: come and sit if you like.
    Corvuscorva Nightfire: Would you like some information about Play as Being?
    Bertrum Quan: I've attended seesions in the past.
    Corvuscorva Nightfire nods, smiling.
    Corvuscorva Nightfire: Hi, Scath!
    Corvuscorva Nightfire: nice to see you.
    Scathach Rhiadra: Hello Corvi:)
    Corvuscorva Nightfire: Bertrum has been here before.
    Corvuscorva Nightfire: Hi, Ade!
    Scathach Rhiadra: ah, Hello Bertrum
    Scathach Rhiadra: Hello ade:)
    Corvuscorva Nightfire: pretty pretty, Adelene.
    Bertrum Quan: Hello
    Adelene Dawner: ^.^ thanks
    Corvuscorva Nightfire: I have'nt' seen this avie before...
    Bertrum Quan: Hello Ade
    Adelene Dawner: This is an older one - the non-human version of my birdwoman av. ^.^
    Corvuscorva Nightfire: I figured.
    Corvuscorva Nightfire: come sit?
    Adelene Dawner was showing off for someone who was thinking about getting this av at Grendel's.
    Corvuscorva Nightfire scritches your head.
    Adelene Dawner grins and wags her tail.
    Corvuscorva Nightfire: Scath can I make the fountain smaller?
    Corvuscorva Nightfire: /low
    Scathach Rhiadra: yes please
    Corvuscorva Nightfire: urk..no..cause I don't rembember how
    Scathach Rhiadra: ah, yu did remember:)
    Adelene Dawner chuckles. ^.-

    As the GOC I ask if there are any PaB topics to share or discuss, but we end up having a general discussion.........interspersed with some long quiet moments.....

    Scathach Rhiadra: has anyone any PaB topic they would like to discuss?
    Scathach Rhiadra always feels obliged to ask at least once:)
    Corvuscorva Nightfire grins.
    Corvuscorva Nightfire: it's a good habit.
    Corvuscorva Nightfire: useful.
    Corvuscorva Nightfire: Bye, Bertrum?
    Corvuscorva Nightfire smiles.
    Scathach Rhiadra: :)
    Corvuscorva Nightfire: How have you been Scath?
    Scathach Rhiadra: Fine thanks, and you?
    Corvuscorva Nightfire: very well for the most part.
    Corvuscorva Nightfire: You, Bertrum?
    Bertrum Quan: Fine thanks.
    Scathach Rhiadra: and you Ade?
    Corvuscorva Nightfire: i think she's afk for a moment.
    Scathach Rhiadra: ah:)
    Corvuscorva Nightfire: how wierd that my avie says i am a way
    Scathach Rhiadra: you OK Corvi?
    Corvuscorva Nightfire: ha..fine..but..
    Corvuscorva Nightfire laughs..seems to be better.
    Scathach Rhiadra: strange, that seems to happen to Pila a lot here too
    Corvuscorva Nightfire: bet it's about connection.
    Adelene Dawner nods.
    Scathach Rhiadra: hmmm, probably

    We talk of the forthcoming celebration to mark the 12th Birthday of the Kira Institute......

    Scathach Rhiadra: is everyone going to the Kira celebration on Tuesday?
    Corvuscorva Nightfire nods.
    Adelene Dawner may, if she remembers, and is awake, and is not busy. Realistically, probably not.
    Scathach Rhiadra: :)
    Bertrum Quan: Celebration?
    Scathach Rhiadra: yes, the Kira Institute will be 12 years old
    Scathach Rhiadra: so there is a day of events to celebrate
    Scathach Rhiadra: there is a fair with booths for each activity involved with Kira, and PaB has one of course:)
    Bertrum Quan: What time?
    Scathach Rhiadra: will look , just a sec..
    Scathach Rhiadra: Its 11 to 4 pm SLT
    Bertrum Quan: Thanks.
    Scathach Rhiadra: the fair will be just from 1 to 3

    The hour is almost up, and people start to leave, but as happens at so many sessions, the conversation turns to PaB........

    Corvuscorva Nightfire: time for me to go...see you all later.
    Adelene Dawner: See you in a few hours, Luv. ^.^
    Scathach Rhiadra: bye Corvi, thanks for coming:)
    Adelene Dawner: I should really go, too - I have chores to take care of.
    Scathach Rhiadra: ok, bye Ade, see you later:)

    Scathach Rhiadra: so, Bertrum, have you been to many PaB sessions, I don't think we have met?
    Bertrum Quan: Not in a long time.
    Scathach Rhiadra: ah
    Scathach Rhiadra: Have you tried the 9-sec practice?
    Bertrum Quan: Yes. You?
    Scathach Rhiadra: yes
    Scathach Rhiadra: how do you find it?
    Bertrum Quan: A way to become more aware.
    Scathach Rhiadra nods
    Scathach Rhiadra: yes, I find the regularity great for falling into mindfulness throughout the day
    Bertrum Quan: it's an interesting exercise.
    Scathach Rhiadra: how does it compare with any other practice you do, if I may ask?
    Bertrum Quan: it's difficult to maintain.
    Scathach Rhiadra nods
    Scathach Rhiadra: the 15 minute regularity?
    Bertrum Quan: Yes. And its brevity.
    Scathach Rhiadra: yes, 9 seconds doesn't seem long enough to be of any value:)
    Bertrum Quan: in general, yes. But sometimes, it's helpful.
    Scathach Rhiadra: yes, and I have found the regularity makes the 9 seconds of more value, so to speak
    Bertrum Quan: That certainly makes sense.
    Bertrum Quan: But theory does not always work well when one attempts to apply it.
    Scathach Rhiadra: :)
    Scathach Rhiadra: that is certainly true

    and then to the different timezones........

    Scathach Rhiadra: what time of the day is it for you, Bertrum?
    Bertrum Quan: nearly 2AM
    Scathach Rhiadra: ah, its breakfast time for me:)
    Bertrum Quan: Much better!
    Scathach Rhiadra: well, you still have the night to sleep:)
    Bertrum Quan: Indeed!
    Bertrum Quan: Conversation suffers because of lack of energy.
    Scathach Rhiadra nods, both from late at night lack and early morning:)

    and back to PaB......

    Bertrum Quan: What has drawn you to PaB?
    Scathach Rhiadra: well, probably the discussion about the nature of reality drew me here
    Scathach Rhiadra: but I have found the 9 second practice very good, and of course the people I have met here:)
    Bertrum Quan: And play as Being?
    Scathach Rhiadra: yes, that took me a while to get into, but I am learning to appreciate appearances for what they are and Being
    Scathach Rhiadra: or as a play of Being
    Scathach Rhiadra: what drew you here to PaB?
    Bertrum Quan: I am interested in the reflective nature of the ideas.
    Bertrum Quan: But
    Bertrum Quan: it's quite a distance to travel...
    Scathach Rhiadra: can you say more..
    Bertrum Quan: the concepts span the universe...
    Scathach Rhiadra: true, and we could probably hold sessions 4 times a day forever, and still never exhaust them
    Bertrum Quan: or only once
    Scathach Rhiadra: :)
    Bertrum Quan: it's been a pleasure having this conversation with you.
    Scathach Rhiadra: its been nice meeting you, see you again, bye
    Bertrum Quan: Have a good breakfast!
    Scathach Rhiadra: have a good night's sleep:)
