    Storm Nordwind: And how is my orientally dressed friend this morning? :)
    Storm Nordwind: Hello Zaldaan
    Eden Haiku: Good. Your kimonic friend had no time to change between looking at the photos in the Art Plaza and exchanging IMs with a friend as soon as I got in Sl about 15 minutes ago;)
    Eden Haiku: Hi Zaldan!
    Zaldaan Sirnah: Hi :)

    Eden Haiku: And how have you been Storm? I saw you put a great photo on the Art Plaza.

    Adams Rubble: It was two years ago on a Thursday afternoon, that I attended my first PaB session to listen to Storm's wonderful summary of what PaB is all about
    Storm Nordwind: Whoa! Really? How time flies!
    Adams Rubble: :)

    Adams Rubble: and Storm especially :)
    Storm Nordwind blushes
    Eden Haiku: How was the journey in a nushell ;)?
    Adams Rubble: not a straight journey eden. hehe
    Adams Rubble: It was at the beginning
    Eden Haiku: Meandering journey like the flow of a river?
    Adams Rubble: hmm, not quite the metaphor
    Storm Nordwind heard "like the flower of a river"
    Adams Rubble: :)
    Eden Haiku: :)
    Adams Rubble: The metaphor isn't there yet Eden :)
    Adams Rubble: maybe next year (giggles)
    Storm Nordwind: Play as Being became a richer place for your arrival and sustained presence Adams :)
    SophiaSharon Larnia: smiles
    SophiaSharon Larnia: definitely
    Adams Rubble: Each of you add our own presence
    Adams Rubble: :)
    SophiaSharon Larnia: :))
    Eden Haiku: On her second year/Waiting for the metaphor/(((Adams))) is still here :)
    --BELL--
    Adams Rubble: It is nice that Storm has maintained a Thursday presence so I can celebrate :)
    Eden Haiku: Yes! I notice you are wearing a nice ring too! A gift maybe?
    Adams Rubble: yes Eden
    Eden Haiku: Nice :) and you are very elegant this morning!
    Adams Rubble blushes
    Adams Rubble: nice flowers Storm :)
    Storm Nordwind: courtesy of Eden, Adams - I just added water :)
    Adams Rubble: :)
    Adams Rubble: Nice Eden :)
    SophiaSharon Larnia: :D
    Eden Haiku: mmmm
    Eden Haiku: mmmm
    Eden Haiku: Was talking and the lines were not showing hence the mmm
    Adams Rubble is reflecting on the "still here" in Eden's poem
    Storm Nordwind: mmmm
    Eden Haiku: Lag I guess
    SophiaSharon Larnia: hi Bleu :)
    Storm Nordwind: Good morning Bleu!
    Adams Rubble: lag is a nuissance
    Bleu Oleander: hi everyone
    Adams Rubble: Hi Belu :)
    Adams Rubble: Bleu

    SophiaSharon had just installed a bookcase in the village pub, complete with books to read. At the same time I said the next line, Sharon pressed the send key on her email client.
    Storm Nordwind: Sharon, is your wonderful addition to the Five Bells pub complete? Are you going to issue a grand announcement? :)
    Bleu Oleander: that is so great Sharon!
    SophiaSharon Larnia: not a grand annoucement :) But I did just send an email
    SophiaSharon Larnia: I have so little online time nowadays I'm afraid I was multi-tasking
    Storm Nordwind should tone down the clairvoyance
    SophiaSharon Larnia: :) why??
    SophiaSharon Larnia: its fun
    Adams Rubble: :)
    Storm Nordwind: hehe
    Eden Haiku: Hi Bleu :)
    Bleu Oleander: hi Eden :)
    Adams Rubble: Some people will have to get their scribing done
    Adams Rubble looks innocent
    SophiaSharon Larnia: like myself too, i left mine half done :)
    Eden Haiku: ,,,,
    Eden Haiku: afk sorry

    Eden was on the phone in real life getting irritated with Apple Care. Meanwhile, Sharon asks us an interesting question about thoughts.
    SophiaSharon Larnia: do you think it's possible to be peaceful and have many thoughts running through your head at the same time?
    Adams Rubble: :)
    Adams Rubble: We can't help our thoughts
    Bleu Oleander: would depend on how you define peaceful
    Adams Rubble: They come and go
    Storm Nordwind: I think so Sharon - provided you just watch then come and go and don't identify with them!
    Adams Rubble: We can be peaceful watching them
    SophiaSharon Larnia: its a new experience for me, hard to explain :)
    Storm Nordwind: A deliberate exercise?
    SophiaSharon Larnia: I'm reading things I don't why I haven't read before, and instead of spinning like I have in the past, this time it's different
    Adams Rubble: It sounds great Sharon :)
    Eden Haiku: back
    Adams Rubble: movement is good
    Storm Nordwind: Oh! Sounds very interesting. Would you care to say a little more? :)
    --BELL--
    SophiaSharon Larnia: yes, on the one hand i dont even think its important :) a thing that was
    SophiaSharon Larnia: for example, all this talk of Wu wei and I didnt really know what it means - I still don't - but have been seeing it as a more spontaneous thing
    Adams Rubble: maybe wu wei is the island in the middle of the meandering river
    SophiaSharon Larnia: i think wu wei is the river flowing whereever it is, it's there, and that's where it is
    Adams Rubble: yes, that too :)
    SophiaSharon Larnia: there and is being relative of course ^^
    Adams Rubble: lots of relatives :)Storm Nordwind: On journeys of discovery, it's often the unexpected places that we espy en route that can bring the greatest reward
    Adams Rubble nods to Storm
    Eden Haiku: afk again
    Adams Rubble: especially those places that allow us to see the limits of our perception
    Storm Nordwind: You can't "push the envelope" unless you know where it is! :)
    SophiaSharon Larnia has in the past, just pushed everything haha
    Adams Rubble: :)
    Adams Rubble: me too
    Adams Rubble: It is one approach :)
    Storm Nordwind: Fine, until things start pushing back!
    SophiaSharon Larnia: giggles
    SophiaSharon Larnia is thinking of things that pushed back, and what the reasons for that were
    SophiaSharon Larnia: and knows it doesnt matter :)
    Adams Rubble: :)
    Storm Nordwind: We probably learn most through interactions - of any kind :)
    Adams Rubble: they mauy be the easiest kind to remember
    --BELL--
    SophiaSharon Larnia: have to go all, thank you!!!
    Adams Rubble: bye Sharon
    SophiaSharon Larnia: so much
    Adams Rubble: thank you Sharon :)
    Bleu Oleander: bye sharon
    Storm Nordwind: Thank you Sharon for the wonderful addition to the pub!
    Bleu Oleander: really nice addition!
    Eden Haiku: Was online with some support service for iPhoto...Bugging and no debug...
    Eden Haiku: Just dropped it. sorry, i missed the conversation...
    Adams Rubble: wb Eden :)

    We talk a bit about the pub and what's there.
    Eden Haiku: Have to go see these books Sharon did, are they books, in the pub?
    Storm Nordwind: Yes. I rearranged the internal architecture a little and she installed a bookcase. Still all very cosy
    Eden Haiku: Oh how nice, I haven't been in the pub for a while...
    Bleu Oleander: looks great Storm
    Eden Haiku: Bleu, I received an invitation to your next salon with Gracie, she is the one writing her Master thesis on her avatar isn't she? How fascinating!
    Storm Nordwind: We serve soft drinks in the pub too Eden. It's not all the hard stuff. And Bella would appreciate your presence :)
    Bleu Oleander: yes, she completed it .... should be an interesting conversation at her studio
    Bleu Oleander: (sunday at 6pm if anyone wants to come :) )
    Eden Haiku: I paid a visit to Bella recently and realized sadly that she has no script that would enable us to pet her (as Paradise's dog has)
    Storm Nordwind: Oh she will purr if your pet her
    Eden Haiku: ;))
    Storm Nordwind: Cats rarely do anything according to a script!
    Bleu Oleander: :)
    Adams Rubble: :)
    Eden Haiku: Paradise's dog has a "pet" button..so you can kneel by the dog and put your face in her fur...
    Adams Rubble: hehe
    Eden Haiku: But right cats are not obedient...:))
    Storm Nordwind: Perhaps we could install a "bribe" button for Bella ;)
    Eden Haiku: LOL
    Bleu Oleander: can cats be bribed??
    Storm Nordwind: No. But they might choose to give you the impression that you succeeded :)
    Bleu Oleander: :)
    Eden Haiku: I find this amazing that students in art departments (I don't remember in which university Gracie is) now write thesis on Second Life avatars! I love the idea and will certainly attend the salon Bleu!
    Bleu Oleander: great Eden!

    Time to go.
    Bleu Oleander: gtg ... cu later :)
    Storm Nordwind: Bye Bleu
    Adams Rubble: bye Bleu

    Storm Nordwind: Bye Adams
    Eden Haiku: Bye Adams, have a nice day of celebration! So nice to have you here!
    Storm Nordwind: Perhaps I should go and try and get some sleep! ;)
    Eden Haiku: Yes, do Storm:) Thanks.
    Storm Nordwind: Plese excuse me for now!
    Eden Haiku: Sorry I was so distracted this morning.
    --BELL--
    Storm Nordwind: And I had all the conversational skills of a wet fish!
    Eden Haiku: Sweet dreams!
