    mike Melendez: :)
    mike Melendez: I feel peaceful :)
    mike Melendez: 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
    mike Melendez: I will offline

    Bleu Oleander: hi B&B :)

    Eden Haiku: Good morning BRuce :)
    Bruce Mowbray: ;-)
    Eden Haiku: Took a picture of us in the pavilion this mrning for our frtiend 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
    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 firts 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 yesterda. 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 finsihed 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 ?
