    Her own greek chorus.jpg


    Eden Haiku: Hey Yaku :))

    Yakuzza Lethecus: good morning eden

Eden Haiku: Any topic on your mind this afternoon?

    Yakuzza Lethecus: nothing in specific

    Yakuzza Lethecus: how to bring a new topic to life artificially ?

    Eden Haiku: So we can share a bit of silence if you like ;)

    Yakuzza Lethecus: ok




Eden Haiku: How was your day at work?

    Yakuzza Lethecus: a coworker collapsed, she was brought away by the ambulance

Eden Haiku: Oh, sorry to hear that.

    Yakuzza Lethecus: i hope she’s fine and that it isn’t too serious
Yakuzza Lethecus: they didn’t know what’s wrong

    Eden Haiku: Oh, that is worrisome. Do you know her well?

    Yakuzza Lethecus: we are only 4 employee’s in the company

Yakuzza Lethecus: and i usually bring her to her daughters home after work, so yes we know each other well there

    Yakuzza Lethecus: hi storm

    Eden Haiku: Hope she will be ok.Hi Storm!

    Storm Nordwind: Hi there :)

Eden Haiku: Yaku was sharing that a coworker collapsed at work today.

Storm Nordwind: Oh dear :(

    Eden Haiku: How are you this morning Storm? Early for you ;)

Storm Nordwind: It is early, yes. But how could I resist my friends here ;)

    Eden Haiku: How sweet of you to say ;))

Eden Haiku: It is raining here, the rain brings a peace the birds enjoy noisily, responding to the birds in SL!

    Storm Nordwind smiles

    Yakuzza Lethecus: i have nice weather around here

Eden Haiku: Noisily is not the right word though...happily rather.

    Storm Nordwind loves the rain when he knows it will eventually stop!

Yakuzza Lethecus: http://www.flickr.com/photos/yakuzza...67731/sizes/l/

Eden Haiku: Right, they are saying it will clear up this afternoon ;)

    Yakuzza Lethecus: this was yesterday afternoon

    Yakuzza Lethecus: just a webcam shot

Eden Haiku: Oh pictures Yaku, thanks!

    Storm Nordwind: Where are you Yaku? ;)

Eden Haiku: A view from your window?

    Yakuzza Lethecus: yes, from the window where i am sitting

    Storm Nordwind: Wonderful

Eden Haiku: Yaku lives a fairlyland!

    Eden Haiku: Smooth hills and cows. I love cows!

    Yakuzza Lethecus: hehe, if you live here it's normal and you come even up with more negative thoughts :P
Yakuzza Lethecus: cattle

Yakuzza Lethecus: they never saw the bull :P

Yakuzza Lethecus: :)

    Eden Haiku: That was a citygirl’s point of view yes.

    Storm Nordwind has lived in all sorts of places

Eden Haiku: having fond memories of my uncle's farm when I was a kid.

Eden Haiku: Was a worshipper of cows even then...Their eyes are so quiet...

Eden Haiku: Still cool in Colorado today?

    Storm Nordwind: Currently 10 degrees

    Eden Haiku: Brrr

    Yakuzza Lethecus: at least with sun ?

Storm Nordwind: It's fine :)

    It's the 8cm diameter hailstones that are the problem! :)

Eden Haiku: Hailstones, wow!

    Storm Nordwind: Fortunately not this morning




    Eden Haiku: Loves the mist in the pond

Eden Haiku: On my first PaB session, Mick told me that we meditated when the mist appeared so I was concentrating real hard not to miss it ;))

Storm Nordwind wonders whether or not, one day, to surprise everyone with an acrobatic fountain :)

Eden Haiku: What would that look like Storm?

Eden Haiku: Maybe you can give up a glimpse this morning?

Storm Nordwind: The spray going up and down and around - in time to music maybe

    Eden Haiku: Oh you would have to script it first...:))

    Storm Nordwind: no no - a special artistic and engineering feat - far too difficult for the spur of the moment - honest

Storm Nordwind: :)

    Yakuzza Lethecus: i just hope sl stay’s alive at all

    Storm Nordwind: vry true

Eden Haiku: Are there rumors of SL eventually going down?

    Yakuzza Lethecus: at first only the fact that they fired 100 employees

Eden Haiku: Caught a tweet this morning that said: people are still on Second Life?

    Eden Haiku: They did? Oh that is worrisome...

    Yakuzza Lethecus: yes, i have to admit even last year when i joined i didn’t think of finding places like this

    Yakuzza Lethecus: i thought sl is a dead thing with crappy graphics

    Yakuzza Lethecus: hi eliza

Eden Haiku: Me neither. I had no idea. I thought it was all about shops.

Eliza Madrigal: Hi :) Sorry to be late!

Eden Haiku: Eliza

Yakuzza Lethecus: you’ll never be late :)

    Eden Haiku: Eliza, good morning!

Eliza Madrigal: Good Morning :))

    Eden Haiku: You just missed Storm, he might have crashed...

    Eliza Madrigal: Oh, I see... hope the weather there is not terrible again?

    Eden Haiku: It seems cold at least...

Eliza Madrigal: Cold in June... hmm

Eliza Madrigal: And you Eden, are you all prepared now?

    Eden Haiku: Yaku was sharing about Second Life firing out about 100 employees recently. We hope our world won't collapse!

Eden Haiku: All packed, not at all :) Still a lot to do...

    Eliza Madrigal: :) Packing is funny... one of those things one continually thinks they are finished with but it seems never...

    Yakuzza Lethecus: will you stay connected to the world ?

    Eliza Madrigal: Sorry to hear about SL employees though...

Eden Haiku: What complicates things is I have to leave the house welcoming for my boyfriend when he will be back jet-lagged from Paris in a week before he joins me, then leaving things here cause I will be back to greet my friends from India who will spend 3 days in Montreal before going to their French course in Quebec City. Fun but lots of juggling!

    Eliza Madrigal: Oh, yes those are joyful stresses, but still stresses :)

    Eden Haiku: Yes, Yaku, I have Wifi connection in the country house. (Well, as I learnt later in the day, there is a glitch with the Internet connection over there, might take a while...Very annoying!)

Eliza Madrigal tries to imagine Eden not using the ipad... hehe....

Eden Haiku: Though I'm a bit concerned because it is another server company and I have to install the wifi gizmo myself...

Eliza Madrigal: Do you have techie friends there, Eden?

    Eden Haiku: Picturing myself laying on the moss with my cat and iPad.

    Eliza Madrigal: Hey, Storm :)

Eliza Madrigal: ooooooooh :))

    Yakuzza Lethecus: wb storm

Eden Haiku: Welcome back Storm! Did you have time to script a spectacular fountain for us?

    Eliza Madrigal: haha... paintings of our time will have computers and cell phones.... "girl lounging in hammock with ipod..."

    Storm Nordwind: Hello again - forgot to turn the fan on and overheated




Yakuzza Lethecus: at least linden labs announced that there will be an client for iphone and ipad "soon"

    Eden Haiku: Well Eliza, it seems I am their techie friend, so I will have to count on Apple Care if there is any glitch.

    Eliza Madrigal smiles

    Eliza Madrigal: That seems a terrific thing, Ya... especially as people are constantly running around, etc

    Eden Haiku: But maybe our techie friend here would know something: if the modem is from another company, it should be working with my Macs still?

Eden Haiku: I don't even know how these devices talk to each other ;)

    Yakuzza Lethecus: usually it should :)

    Yakuzza Lethecus: if u use wifi there you might have a router there which communicates with the external or build in modem

Yakuzza Lethecus: :P

    Eden Haiku: Yes, the thing is we are getting a new router with wifi. In past years, we were only conncted through cablelines, no wifi.

Eden Haiku: That was before iPod and iPad, things change ;))

Eliza Madrigal: :))

    Eliza Madrigal: What is this place like for you, Eden? Another sacred spot?

Eden Haiku: Ah yes, an artists village. Wonderful place, with so many friendly people!

Eliza Madrigal: Oh, so it isn't that you are hiding away.... just changing settings....

Eliza Madrigal: (though sometimes hiding away is fun) :)

Eden Haiku: Yoga centers, coffee shops, international art symposiums.

    Eliza Madrigal: Ah! heart of a town then...

Eden Haiku: No no, really a village,. We are close to the river and it is in the middle of forest.

    Eliza Madrigal: Sounds lovely

Eden Haiku: The art symposium is held every 2 years by a local artist in the forest. Installation art. Let me look for a link ;)))

Eliza Madrigal: In the forest? wow... yes thanks

Eden Haiku: http://jardinsduprecambrien.com/accueil.php

    Storm Nordwind: Good afternoon Zen

Zen Arado: Hi all

    Eden Haiku: Did not find the English page but there must be...Hi Zen!

Zen Arado: sorry I'm late

Yakuzza Lethecus: hey zen

Eliza Madrigal: Hi Zen :)

Eliza Madrigal: I love this picture on the front though... blending...

    Eden Haiku: Not much pictures though...No techies in this village as you see...:)

    Eliza Madrigal: haha

Eliza Madrigal: Still, a village that recognizes the 'need' for art as expression of nature...

    Eden Haiku: I saw the most wonderful art exhibit there in this symposium, an artist from a nearby town. Danielle Lagace. She created an installation with branches and black roses embroidered with quotations from one of our great mystic saints from the 17th century Marie de l'Incarnation.




Eliza Madrigal: She's the only artist link I clicked on just now!

    Eden Haiku: http://www.expo.umontreal.ca/exposit...passees62.htm#

    Eliza Madrigal: oops... not... the artist is tricia middleton (sorry) [and also sorry bell]

    Eden Haiku: Link is with Universty of Montreal but we saw it first in the little gallery in the village.

Eliza Madrigal: wonderful way to spend the Summer, Eden

Eden Haiku: She also uses lots of quotes from "Women running with wolves' of Clarissa Pinkola Estes.

Eden Haiku: Yes, hoping I will find time to write a bit :-)

    Eliza Madrigal: Only recently am I learning how much that book has influenced so many!

Zen Arado: she seems quite feminist

Eliza Madrigal: I remember that I gave a copy of that book to a neighbor who looked at me like I was crazy...

Eden Haiku: Feminist in the most wonderful way Zen, I'm sure Jan would appreciate the wild woman archetype!

Eliza Madrigal: yes :))

    Eden Haiku: Gave so many copies of that book too ;)

    Eliza Madrigal: :))

Eden Haiku: Did you ever hear her tapes Eliza?

Zen Arado: embroidery on the outside...repressed agression, anger and pain on the inside

    Eliza Madrigal: No... never thought to look, Eden

Eden Haiku: Got them through Sounds True. She has the most wonderful storytelling voice!

    Eliza Madrigal: Thank you :) Making note...

Eliza Madrigal: Zen, say more?

Zen Arado: just quoting from the description Eden gave

Eliza Madrigal: Ah :)

Eden Haiku: http://bit.ly/bm9Jvh (link to the Sounds true catalogue.)

Eliza Madrigal: ty

    Zen Arado: about Danielle Lagace

    Zen Arado: I cheated...used Google translator

Eliza Madrigal: That's not cheating, but smart :)

Eden Haiku: Yes, she creates objects with traditional women's tools like pins and embroidery and she evokes the soul.

Zen Arado: I like to try to read French tho

Zen Arado: and then check with translator

Eden Haiku: Very smart!

    Eliza Madrigal: I had a wonderful mentor for a few years, who brought me back into a love of traditionally 'female' arts.... she is a poet and gourmet chef, and writes about food equisitely...

    Zen Arado: good way to learn

Eliza Madrigal: until then I think I subscribed more to the notion of the english patient quote of "a woman who sews should never admit it"

    Eliza Madrigal giggles

Zen Arado: I had to sew a rakusu 2 years ago

Zen Arado: found it difficult

    Eden Haiku: :The English Patient" is such a great novel. I love Michael Ondaatje. The "tact of words" he says...
Eden Haiku: Rakusu?

Eliza Madrigal: I've not read anything else of his... that list gets long :)

    Zen Arado: the little bib thing Zen students wear after you take the precepts

Eden Haiku: "Running in the family" is especially good.

    Eliza Madrigal: Ah, if small probably more difficult to sew... and to get it just right?

Yakuzza Lethecus: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rakusu

    Eliza Madrigal: ty Ya

    Zen Arado: ty Yaku

Zen Arado: ys and the teacher is quite fussy about the stitching

    Zen Arado: Hi Bleu
