    The Guardian for this meeting was Eden Haiku. The comments are by Eden Haiku.

    (Note about the logging process: back to getting all the lines in a pack. Have to separate them one by one. I'm copying the log in Textedit and then converting to TextFormat without saving, then I paste it on the wiki page. It used to work beautifully. Hope this gets solved soon...)
    Yakuzza and I had been drinking tea and chatting in voice before we reach the pavilion where we are soon joined by Bleu and a new visitor (I deleted his name and called him *Visitor as I did not get his permission to record). Bruce joins us a bit later. Always very elegant, Bleu shows up in a new great outfit she created.
    Eden Haiku: Good morning Bleu :)

    Bleu Oleander: hi Eden, Yaku
    Eden Haiku: What an extraordinary outfit!

    Eden Haiku: Did you create it Bleu?

    Bleu Oleander: ty, just made it
    Eden Haiku: Wow, it is all fluffly with some bleu shades at the ends. Yummy!!!

    Bleu Oleander: it's fun to create these looks
    Eden Haiku: Fun to see you wear them too :)) It brings lightness and play :))

    *Visitor: hi yakzza
    Eden Haiku: Hi *Visitor. You are welcome to sit with us if you like.
    *Visitor: hi eden
    Bleu Oleander: hi *visitor
    *Visitor: hi
    Eden Haiku: Is it your first time here *Visitor?

    *Visitor: yes

    *Visitor: where are you from eden
    Eden Haiku: We are recording our sessions on a Web site, would you agree to be recorded?
    Eden Haiku: I live in Montreal *Visitor.

    Yakuzza Lethecus: hey *visitor,bleu
    *Visitor: yes yakuzza
    Bleu Oleander: hi Yaku
    Eden Haiku: I realize I do not have the new PaB note card, would you have one Bleu or Yaku?

    Bleu Oleander: sure
Bleu Oleander: I gave *visitor one
    Eden Haiku: Thanks Yaku and Bleu. *Visitor, I passed on the info about our group on notecards.

    Eden Haiku: Oh sorry, you are well-informed now *Visitor:))
Eden Haiku: We are a meditation group and we meet here 4 times a day.
    *Visitor: ohh good

    Eden Haiku: I mean there is always a meeting 4 times a day, with different people attending, according to their free times and time zones :)).

    *Visitor: hmmm

    *Visitor: time free
Eden Haiku: :)

    *Visitor: good

    *Visitor: :)
    *Visitor: I feel peaceful :)

    *Visitor: and cool
    Eden Haiku: :)

    Bleu Oleander: There are some introductory ideas on the website. But basically we stop for 9 seconds, just pause, and drop our associations and identifications that we carry with us most of the time, our baggage if you like, so that we can get a chance to see what we are behind that.
    Bleu Oleander: we get together a few times a day to chat about the nature of reality, and everything else, and we have a wiki http://wiki.playasbeing.org/

    Eden Haiku: There is a bell every 15 minutes, and for 90 seconds, we try to be silent and become aware of our surroundings.
    Eden Haiku: We sometimes speak during the pauses though :))

    Bleu Oleander: try not to ..... but ......

    Eden Haiku: Sometimes, we get talkative. Not this morning, obviously :)

    Eden Haiku: I'm very sad about learning that our friend Zen is in hospital.

    Bleu Oleander: yes, I saw that .... sent him a note

    Bleu Oleander: you'll have to watch his property for him :)

    Eden Haiku: He has been coming here at the Play as Being pavilion for many months, so we got to know him. I hope he recovers soon :) I have been missing him..

    Bleu Oleander: we should send him a photo

    Eden Haiku: Yes, I will watch his garden and gallery Bleu.

    Eden Haiku: A photo Bleu?

    Bleu Oleander: of us here

    Eden Haiku: Yes, great idea. Sending him our best wishes.
    Bleu Oleander: yes
    *Visitor: I will offline

    Yakuzza Lethecus: hey bruce
    *Visitor: see u later

    Bruce Mowbray: G'day, Yaku,
    *Visitor, Eden,Bleu.

    Bleu Oleander: bye *visitor
    Bruce Mowbray: bye,*Visitor.

    Eden Haiku: See u later *Visitor.

    Bleu Oleander: hi B&B :)

    *VIsitor: hi bruce and goodbye bruce :D

    Eden Haiku: Good morning Bruce :)
    Bruce Mowbray: ;-)
    Eden Haiku: Took a picture of us in the pavilion this morning for our friend Zen who is in hospital in Ireland. Did you have a chance to meet him Bruce?

    Bleu Oleander: we should go to his garden and take a photo there for him
    Eden Haiku: Ah, that would be nice. Maybe after the session?

    Bleu Oleander: yes
    Eden Haiku: Bleu, I would like to hear more about the new Being puzzled project. It seems it will be photographs after all?

    Bruce Mowbray: Yes --- I have met Zen. I also read the emails about his illness. Good of you to think of sending him the photo.
    Bleu Oleander: yes, Eden ..... i'll be sending out a notice towards the end of July for a mid august installation date

    Eden Haiku: Yes, Bleu came up with this neat idea. It would be nice to know she would take the photo herself. She is the best photograph!

    Eden Haiku: ;)

    Bleu Oleander: ha!
    Bleu Oleander: ty Eden :)
    Eden Haiku: I can write a special "Get well" haiku maybe :))
    Bleu Oleander: that would be lovely Eden
    Eden Haiku: And we could tell him we spoke during the bell :)) He would smile...

    Bleu Oleander: yes
    Bruce has been experimenting about time and we try to help him to log in the wiki so he can post his report 
    Eden Haiku: How are Blub and you doing this morning Bruce?
    Bruce Mowbray: Excellent, thanks.
    Bruce Mowbray: Been re-reading Pema's first chapter.
    Bruce Mowbray: woke up to rain on the roof about 4 a.m. -- practiced Being as Play for about an hour with the rain coming down.

    Bruce Mowbray: Wonderful.

    Eden Haiku: Ah, yes. Any new insights? Do you still need help in posting your report?
    Bruce Mowbray: I still need to email Piet/Pema about that.

    Eden Haiku: Maybe I can help you with that. I think Pema has a lot on his hands now...
    Eden Haiku: Maybe we can even do that now as we are all part of the Time Group.

    Bruce Mowbray: Insights? I'm finding that I want to "stay" in Being -- and not "come back" (identify with) the having stuff.

    Bleu Oleander: did you get a sign on name and password for the PaB wiki?

    Bruce Mowbray: cool. That would be good -- although I have not finished my report yet.
    Eden Haiku: It is quite easy to log on the wiki. No need to be a guardian for that.
    Bruce Mowbray: nope.

    Bleu Oleander: I think you have to sign in to edit the wiki
    Bruce Mowbray: I cannot find a registration form on which I would sign on - log-on.

    Eden Haiku: Ah, let me look.

    Bruce Mowbray: register, I mean.
    Bleu Oleander: I think Storm would be able to give you that
    Bleu Oleander: isn't that right Eden?
    Bruce Mowbray: I've been thinking that I would just email my report to Pema and let him take it from there.
Eden Haiku: Yes, you can do that Bruce, for sure.
    Bruce Mowbray: OK. Simpler for everyone (except Pema!) that way.

    Eden Haiku: But if you log in. Just write your first name, find a password and you are logged in.
    Bleu Oleander: I think Storm needs to give you a password, no?

    Bruce Mowbray: Mmmm.. Since there is no registration form for the wiki - I will need someone else to register me and give me a password. . .

    Eden Haiku: Just tested it and it did not work. But I remember it used to be easy to log in.

    Bleu Oleander: send an email to Storm

    Eden Haiku: We did not need that before but maybe it is different now, with the new wiki.

    Bleu Oleander: he can set you up
    Bleu Oleander: he did that for me
    Eden Haiku: Yes, good idea Bleu.

    Bruce Mowbray: OK. Then I will need to get Storm's email address from someone.
    Bruce Mowbray: Better, perhaps, just to do it through Pema.
    Bleu Oleander: Storm Nordwind .... just IM him
    Bleu Oleander: he's on often
    Bruce Mowbray: cool. Thanks.

    Bruce Mowbray: although easier said than done - since it is not possible for me to join the group (where I might find Storm - to IM him). . . On cannot "Join" the PaB group - - apparently only guardians are members.
    Eden Haiku: I took a 9 seconds break in the pool yesterday. Doing the starfish.

    Bruce Mowbray: I would need to wait until Storm makes an appearance -- and then IM him if I can see him.
Eden Haiku: No you can find him in search Bruce.

    Bleu Oleander: no, you can just send him an IM and he will get it when he logs on
    Bleu Oleander: search for him under "people"
    Bleu Oleander: and you'll get his profile
    Bleu Oleander: send him IM
    Bruce Mowbray: search for Storm Nordwind -- I will try.

    Bleu Oleander: it will be held for him until he logs in
    Bleu Oleander: ask him about joining PaB
    Bleu Oleander: it's a short process to become a member
    Bruce Mowbray: Found him - "the old dodderer who is as stupid as a yak". . .

    Bleu Oleander: ha!

    Eden Haiku: Must be him ;)

    Bleu Oleander: that's him
    Eden Haiku: Yes, that's our Storm :) Had not read his profile in a while :))
    Bruce Mowbray: I've just IMd Storm.
    Eden Haiku: When Bruce is finished sending his IM, maybe we can go to Zen's garden and Bleu could take a nice picture to send Zen?

    Bleu Oleander: yes let's do that
    Eden Haiku: Ah, good. I'm sure you will be settled soon Bruce ;)
    Bruce Mowbray: Just finished with it. I will need a TP to the garden.

    Eden Haiku: Will TP you.

    Bleu Oleander: can you come too Yaku?

    Yakuzza Lethecus: tp ?
    Storm having been contacted by IM to solve the issue with logging as a new member in the wiki, we move to Zen's beautiful pond in his garden where we dance happily "on" the water, sending him our best wishes for a quick recovery. Bleu takes snapshots to send him (see one of hers below) and I manage to photograph the four of us and write a "get well" haiku for our sick friend.
