    The Guardian for this meeting was Eos Amaterasu. The comments are by Eos Amaterasu.


    Eos Amaterasu: Hail, Storm!

    Storm Nordwind chuckles

    Eos Amaterasu: (or maybe not)

    Storm Nordwind: Not today fortunately

    Storm Nordwind: There can only be so much ice in the sky

    Eos Amaterasu: How have you been, Storm?

    Storm Nordwind: Up and down. Need more sleep. But now I'm fortified with pumpkin bread, ice cream and coffee, I thought I'd pass by and say Hi

    Eos Amaterasu: Good fortifications!

    Storm Nordwind: guaranteed to repel all but the most tenacious assailant

    Eos Amaterasu: rouse the force in all your little cells

    Storm Nordwind: I probably need that now it's no longer May 4th

    Eos Amaterasu: "the force that through the green fuse drives the flower" - Dylan Thomas

    Storm Nordwind: Nice quote

    Storm Nordwind: How are preparations for the retreat?

    Eos Amaterasu: I think it's more or less lining up: NS retreat will have eight or nine people attending




    Eos Amaterasu: once they're there everything is taken care of

    Storm Nordwind: A fixed schedule?

    Eos Amaterasu: Hi Paradise!

    Storm Nordwind: Hi there! We were just talking about you (not really) ;)

    Paradise Tennant: hiya eos .. long time no see nice to see you .. hiya storm lol

    Eos Amaterasu: I'm looking forward to how much we can do in the outdoors at NS retreat

    Storm Nordwind: Any surprises planned for people? ;)

    Eos Amaterasu: heh heh

    Eos Amaterasu: there will be a night walk

    Storm Nordwind: Count them out. Count them back in again :)

    Paradise Tennant: smiles

    Eos Amaterasu: led by the owner / caretaker of the land, the trees

    Paradise Tennant: sounds lovely .. it is a dog friendly resort by any chance eos ?

    Eos Amaterasu: maybe during the silent day people could start the previous night, stay in the woods....

    Eos Amaterasu: I don't know about dogs.... there are horses

    Storm Nordwind: Any marauding wildlife?

    Eos Amaterasu: pretty tame, though Nova Scotia does have bears and coyotes

    Eos Amaterasu: I saw a russet-colored fox not too far from my house recently

    Eos Amaterasu: Any PaB themes coming up for anybody?

    Storm Nordwind looks at the noticeboard

    Storm Nordwind: The next is on the 21st

    Eos Amaterasu: (ah, theme sessions)

    Storm Nordwind: Your question was...?

    Eos Amaterasu: An Art as Being session?

    Storm Nordwind: I think so yes

    Storm Nordwind: Overflowing the line - I'll just edit it!

    Paradise Tennant: loves it when lines overflow :)

    Storm Nordwind: That sounds very poetic :)

    Eos Amaterasu: from five syllables  / to seven to five, haiku / overflows the lines

    Paradise Tennant: have you been writing haikus lately eos :)

    Eos Amaterasu: just now and then; twitter is a good vehicle for that

    Paradise Tennant: smiles and writes a note to self to actually log onto twitter to see what people are talking about




    Eos Amaterasu: twitter can be a way to share being with others, in 140-character fragments

    Eos Amaterasu: little telepathic glimpses

    Storm Nordwind: I like how, when it's used to best advantage, it's like community glue

    Eos Amaterasu: pings with interesting content

    Eos Amaterasu: Hi Eliza

    Eliza Madrigal: Hello :)

    Paradise Tennant: actually I think .. the feeling of being part of a community is one of the most compelling .. features of the human condition in a way ..and one of the most engaging aspects of sl

    Paradise Tennant: hiya eliza !

    Storm Nordwind: Hi Eliza

    Eliza Madrigal: Hi Paradise, cute hair! :)

    Storm Nordwind: Nah

    Eliza Madrigal: haha, yes four years seems enough

    Eliza Madrigal: (that's a long time for SL!)

    Storm Nordwind: I've had mine 4 years. It'll be another 4 before I change it

    Storm Nordwind: Unless I'm bald

    Eliza Madrigal: No comment from the constant changer here :)

    Paradise Tennant: lol ahh a nite for the toys to come out :)

    Eliza Madrigal: some have wilder toys than others it seems.... what a gadget storm!

    Storm Nordwind: Works better in the open as you keep colliding with the walls here

    Eos Amaterasu: appreciating the movement of appearance

    Paradise Tennant: apparently must have a manual :)

    Paradise Tennant: nods and smiles

    Storm Nordwind: Arrow keys to drive it. Page up to change camera views

    Paradise Tennant: ahh the camera view was tricky :)

    Storm Nordwind: Like I say, better in the open

    Storm Nordwind: But I used the direct above view

    Storm Nordwind: Anyone else want a try?

    Eliza Madrigal: cant resist

    Storm Nordwind: Move the arrow keys

    Eliza Madrigal: oops.... lost myself

    Eliza Madrigal: am up in a tree

    Storm Nordwind: But key page up until you get a good view

    Eliza Madrigal: playing in the dark....

    Eliza Madrigal: cant see what I'm doing, hah

    Eliza Madrigal: ahhh there

    Paradise Tennant: smiles and sits with eos enjoying the appearance of movement .. colour :)

    Eos Amaterasu: leaving contrails

    Eliza Madrigal: looks like soap suds

    Storm Nordwind chuckles

    Eliza Madrigal: or bath tub foam like my children would use :))

    Eliza Madrigal giggles

    Eliza Madrigal: tada

    Eliza Madrigal: :::hoists Eos up::::

    Eos Amaterasu: the bubbles undid themselves

    Eliza Madrigal: ooops... was all a dream

    Paradise Tennant: smiles maybe tonight the focus is on play :)

    Paradise Tennant: smiles

    Paradise Tennant: a happy kind of being

    Eliza Madrigal: :)

    Eos Amaterasu: thinking of watching babies recently.... learning to be through play

    Eliza Madrigal: at Alia, Eos?

    Eliza Madrigal: do people bring children?

    Eos Amaterasu: oh, on plane flight recently from London to Halifax, but also at ALIA, there were a couple of babies and other children

    Eos Amaterasu: arms and hands moving, face and eyes moving

    Eliza Madrigal: a baby's eyes seem to bring one directly to Being

    Eliza Madrigal: just make everything else kind of fade for a moment

    Eos Amaterasu: there's a kind of startled quality, almost "you're kidding me"

    Eliza Madrigal: as though there is an else, I know... Still, there is an instantaneous kind of something

    Eliza Madrigal: Kidding me? hehe

    Eos Amaterasu wonders if there is an else

    Paradise Tennant: like "I remember where I was before I got here .. but boy this is kind of weird :)

    Eliza Madrigal: :)))

    Paradise Tennant: then >> the explosion of joy at the whole appearance of toes !

    Eos Amaterasu: maybe it's the basic epoché?

    Paradise Tennant: like are they not just the greatest thinss

    Eliza Madrigal: Oh, yes toes!

    Eliza Madrigal considering

    Eos Amaterasu: also the sensory/motor circuits are closing, and learning to open close; like, "I can make my toes appear"




    Paradise Tennant: smiles

    Paradise Tennant: yes .. and I can touch them to my nose too .. immediately trys that in rl :)

    Eliza Madrigal: hahahahah

    Paradise Tennant: and does it!

    Eliza Madrigal: yay!
