    The Guardian for this meeting was Darren Islar. The comments are by Darren Islar.

    I just thought about going, when Calvino arrived


    Darren Islar: hey Cal :-)
    Calvino Rabeni: Hello Darren
    Darren Islar: you're just in time, I almost left
    Calvino Rabeni: It happens, I try to log on at 1 and "your viewer must be updated"


    Meditations and a retreat

    Calvino Rabeni: How have things been going?
    Darren Islar: okay
    Darren Islar: 9 to 10 persons for the meditation groups
    Darren Islar: I'm pleased with that
    Calvino Rabeni: That's great
    Darren Islar: yes, almost two full groups
    Darren Islar: I'm looking forward to it
    Calvino Rabeni: How long will they meet - how many meetings?
    Darren Islar: well, to start with 4 times
    Darren Islar: but I hope I can do 8 if everybody is willing
    Darren Islar: because then you get the hang of it
    Darren Islar: and we can close that before summertime
    Darren Islar: after that I don't know
    Darren Islar: I can do more, maybe we keep one group left in september
    Darren Islar: I woud like that, but just let's see what happens
    Darren Islar: and how are you doing?
    Darren Islar: there are some changes in your life from the looks of it
    Calvino Rabeni: I'm home now - it is really quiet - i have a little jet lag
    Darren Islar: welcome home :-)
    Calvino Rabeni: Still digesting impressions from my travels
    Darren Islar: hmmmm
    Calvino Rabeni: I'll be traveling again starting thursday - but hope to join one of your meditation meetings
    Darren Islar: where are you going this time?
    Darren Islar: you said you should do some travelling in the US
    Calvino Rabeni: a retreat in oregon at a remote place - then down to maintain some property I have in southern oregon - kind of a road trip, about 26 hours driving total
    Darren Islar: a retreat, great
    Calvino Rabeni: The waters come from snow that fell 10000 years ago, and eventually emerge from the hot springs on sits in


    During the bell I grabbed myself another cup of coffee

    Darren Islar: sorry about that but I need to go right away after this session
    Darren Islar: and had real problems getting up this morning :-)
    Calvino Rabeni: That's fine - my lagged brain is basically empty tonight
    Darren Islar: :-)

    How SL can fool you

    Darren Islar: I saw you and Moon and Stargate here once
    Darren Islar: were you meditating?
    Calvino Rabeni: I remember that
    Darren Islar: yes , I'm afraid I disturbed you
    Calvino Rabeni: No, I believe everyone was A F K - there was no IM happeining either
    Darren Islar: okay :-)
    Darren Islar: sl can fool you :-)
    Calvino Rabeni: Yes you never know :)

    I noticed, since I met Cal, that he slowly starts to change his outfit, wearing a bright orange rope today, in a way monks often do

    Darren Islar is looking at Cal's new rope
    Darren Islar: when I met you, you were all in leather :-)
    Calvino Rabeni: I remember- maybe will change to lace or some diaphanous gowns later :)
    Darren Islar: :-)

    Shifting to the issue of genders

    Calvino Rabeni: You have changed also - what does it all mean, wonders Calvino
    Calvino Rabeni: I have a female avatar - haven't used it yet because I have no clothing for her
    Darren Islar: :_)
    Darren Islar: it can be real fun to have more avatars
    Darren Islar: and they can surprise you
    Darren Islar: especially ones from a different gender
    Calvino Rabeni: Too bad, there are generally just two of those :)
    Calvino Rabeni: Unless you count the Navi ones
    Darren Islar: :-)))))
    Darren Islar: well I have seen a documentary


    Darren Islar: from a country, that are counting 5 different genders
    Darren Islar: the hermaphrodite
    Darren Islar: the male male, the femal male
    Darren Islar: the female female and the male female
    Darren Islar: I was amazed, but it was pretty interesting
    Calvino Rabeni: Which country?
    Darren Islar: I can't remember or maybe it was a district
    Darren Islar: long time ago I saw the documentary
    Darren Islar: and I didn't see it from the start if I remember well
    Calvino Rabeni: I think, thailand has 3, as far as I can tell
    Darren Islar: what is the third?
    Calvino Rabeni: #1 are men, whether gay or straight, #2 women gay or straight, and #3 appear to be lady-boys (katouy)
    Calvino Rabeni: that being men with sex change modifications
    Darren Islar: ah, yes of course, that is pretty common in Thailand

    saying goodbye

    Darren Islar: sorry Cal, need to go
    Darren Islar: next time Bolo will be here
    Calvino Rabeni: OK have a good day Darren, take care
    Darren Islar: but I'll see you at one of the other sessions
    Darren Islar: will miss our conversations though :-)
    Calvino Rabeni: See you later :)
    Darren Islar: see you
