    Bruce Mowbray: She's looking good to me too.
    Agatha Macbeth: Aww

    Eliza Madrigal: must be
    Wol Euler chortles.
    Bruce Mowbray: but just a dash of Mad Dash.
    Agatha Macbeth: A dash is enough...

    Eliza Madrigal: Oh? listens...
    Wol Euler: and which I wish had happened is
    Wol Euler: onigokko
    Bruce Mowbray listen. . . .
    Eliza Madrigal: hahahah, yes indeed
    Agatha Macbeth: Yay
    arabella Ella: LOL
    MarkMonet Thor: hmmm
    Eliza Madrigal rushes for her inventory...
    Wol Euler: I can't believe we didn't do this in RL when we had the chance
    Mickorod Renard: cool
    Mickorod Renard: yipeeeeeeeeeeeeee
    arabella Ella: seems like a few people here need a tail
    Agatha Macbeth: Or an eye...
    Eliza Madrigal: stop
    Bruce Mowbray: stop
    Eliza Madrigal: onigokko
    Eliza Madrigal: There, a little better....
    Wol Euler: did anyone give Mark one?
    Agatha Macbeth: Does Mark have one?
    Eliza Madrigal nudges Mark
    Agatha Macbeth: Snap
    MarkMonet Thor: Thank you, thank you

    Eliza Madrigal: stop
    Wol Euler: just wear it, it's invisible and mostly harmless
    Agatha Macbeth: Mark my words...
    Bruce Mowbray: except it could put out you eye.
    Agatha Macbeth: Eye eye
    Bruce Mowbray: your.
    arabella Ella: it just makes us look rather mad at times
    Wol Euler: somebody who carries swords is unlikely to be worrie3d about that.
    Eliza Madrigal: dashing around
    arabella Ella: which is fun
    Agatha Macbeth: At times?
    arabella Ella: always?
    arabella Ella: LOL
    Agatha Macbeth: Did somebody drop one?
    Eliza Madrigal: hm, I hear the music but see no dashing presently...
    Eliza Madrigal: hope I didn't again...sigh
    Agatha Macbeth: Ha!
    Wol Euler: oh no, not again :)
    Mickorod Renard: it wasnt me
    Bruce Mowbray: Oh NOOOOO!!!!!
    Eliza Madrigal: I only read about that
    Agatha Macbeth: 'Find the onigokko'
    Eliza Madrigal: eeeek
    Wol Euler: eliza, check your inventory, are you still wearing yours?
    MarkMonet Thor: I have a onogokko, but cannot get it to work
    Eliza Madrigal is just a little clumsy
    Wol Euler: just wear it
    Agatha Macbeth gets Storm on her phone
    Eliza Madrigal: I'm wearing mine
    Wol Euler: it activates when somebody says
    Eliza Madrigal: but I did try to give one to Mark
    Wol Euler: onigokko
    MarkMonet Thor: I am
    Eliza Madrigal: which is how I dropped the other one
    Eliza Madrigal: Ah! There you go Mark!
    MarkMonet Thor: Are they all linked?
    Bruce Mowbray: nope -- they are separate -- just all activated.
    Bruce Mowbray: stop
    Wol Euler: there, it's off now
    MarkMonet Thor: Who controls them?
    Bruce Mowbray: Friday came a bit early this week.
    Agatha Macbeth: MJ12?
    Wol Euler: they all start whenever somebody says "onigokko" within your hearing
    MarkMonet Thor: OH, I see
    Agatha Macbeth: It's a woyd ting
    arabella Ella: why not give it a try MarkMonet
    MarkMonet Thor: Lets see, onigokko

    Agatha Macbeth was wondering too
    Bleu Oleander: yes

    Agatha Macbeth: Oh my
    Eliza Madrigal: then after SFrancisco we wrote essays and had just one session
    Wol Euler: we should have discussed that at the retreat.
    Bruce Mowbray: lying down like a rotting log.


    --BELL--(1400)

    Eliza Madrigal: Maybe Blueberry Lion Enoughness is sufficient
    Agatha Macbeth: Iron like a lion in Zion
    Mickorod Renard: can that be made into a haiku?
    Agatha Macbeth: Probably
    Eliza Madrigal: Rotting Log practice was definitely central...
    Wol Euler: mmhmm
    Eliza Madrigal: and being seen
    Agatha Macbeth: Can you elaborate Liz?
    Agatha Macbeth: That's Latin for 'say more'?
    Bleu Oleander: :)
    Eliza Madrigal: Let me grab a little of the frame given by the guardian/host of Windhorse Farms...
    Agatha Macbeth: Okies
    Mickorod Renard: well,,whatever u did there sounds like it must be worth 2 weeks next time

    Eliza Madrigal: Okay... here is "Forest Practice" according to Jim Drescher: Sit Like a Frog Stand like a tree. Sit like a frog. Lie down like a rotting log. See forms like an owl. Hear sounds like the white-tailed deer. Smell the wind like a horse. Taste nectar like a bee. Feel your world like a bob cat. Be discriminating without commentary. Be fully human: Upright and balanced, Expansive and sensitive, Tender and fearless, Open, spacious and relaxed. There is nothing missing So take the royal seat --- Protect this earth and all our relations. whf april 2009 See How It Is First see how it is. Then just be --- open, spacious and relaxed. Now, what draws you to engage In uncovering inherent richness? Honestly and thoroughly explore your doubt, But don’t take refuge there. Penetrate the veils that obscure Primordial wisdom. Rest there. Relax into wakefulness. Wake up into relaxation With things as they are. Nothing is missing So take the royal seat. Protect this earth and All our relations.
    Mickorod Renard: bye mark
    Mickorod Renard: thats a h of a haiku
    Bleu Oleander: sounds like anywhere practice
    Eliza Madrigal: Oh, and there is another part, but hard to copy from a pdf...
    Eliza Madrigal: Indeed Bleu
    Agatha Macbeth: What isn't?
    Mickorod Renard: I just tried it in rap,,sounds good
    Eliza Madrigal: hehehe
    Agatha Macbeth: What, pdf?
    Wol Euler snaps her fingers in time.
    Agatha Macbeth: In time for what?
    Wol Euler: in time to the beats, my dear.
    Agatha Macbeth: Oh
    Wol Euler: :)
    Mickorod Renard: u need an accent and baggy trousers too
    Wol Euler: and cheap and hideous jewellry
    Agatha Macbeth: Include me out then
    Mickorod Renard: oh yea
    Eliza Madrigal: swagger like us..
    Wol Euler: and boast about hanging out in neighbourhoods that you lock your car doors while driving through.
    Eliza Madrigal: Would you like to read the rest?
    Wol Euler: please :)
    Eliza Madrigal: whf april 2010 Drown in Your World Look at whatever catches your eye ball. Listen intently to coarse and subtle sounds. Flare your nostrils and breathe. Move your tongue. Touch your world. Curiosity is motivation enough. Let go and relax into open space. As the world surges toward you, See it, hear it, smell it, taste it, feel it. Leap into the depth and cool warmth of beauty. Willingly Joyfully Hopelessly Fearlessly drown in your world. There is nothing else. There is nothing missing. whf May 2010
    Mickorod Renard: mine locks me in automaticaslly,,I recon my car is chicken
    Eliza Madrigal: your car would probably not sign up for the night alone in the forest I guess Mick :)
    Mickorod Renard: :)
    Wol Euler: heheh
    Bruce Mowbray muses: Curiosity, wonder, and beauty. . .
    Mickorod Renard: I see there is nothing much about sex in this one,,which would indicate its not rap
    Agatha Macbeth: Yes Bruce?
    Bruce Mowbray: just musing about some parts of the "haiku"
    Agatha Macbeth: Oh, thought you meant me
    arabella Ella: did any of you actually spend a night alone in the forest?
    Bruce Mowbray: you are indeed curious, aggers.
    Wol Euler: er, no.
    Agatha Macbeth: And beautiful!
    arabella Ella: of course he meant you Ags
    Bruce Mowbray: and wondrous.
    Eliza Madrigal: No Ara.. I left thinking that I might if given the chance though... and some did take a night walk
    Wol Euler: there was a night walk, though, which some went on.
    arabella Ella: ah interesting
    tree hugging.jpgWol Euler: others (coughs) stayed in bed and got up early next morning for the dawn chorus
    Agatha Macbeth: Nova Scotia somnambulists...
    Eliza Madrigal: Oh... hm, yes
    Eliza Madrigal: :)
    Bruce Mowbray: was the forest floor soft?
    Wol Euler: very
    Wol Euler: surprisingly so
    Eliza Madrigal: Oh so soft Bruce.... soft enough to run in
    Agatha Macbeth: Any tree hugging?
    Eliza Madrigal: and not hear oneself running in
    Eliza Madrigal: tree touching....
    Eliza Madrigal: tree listening to...
    Agatha Macbeth: Did the trees touch back?
    Wol Euler: who had the tree hugger t-shirt? was that you, eliza?
    Eliza Madrigal: yes I think they did
    Bruce Mowbray: Good to hear that there was tree listening.
    Wol Euler grins
    Eliza Madrigal: and yes I was :)
    Eliza Madrigal: hehehe *it was
    Agatha Macbeth: Leaf well alone
    Bruce Mowbray: If we are standing like trees stand, then we should at least listen to them also.
    Agatha Macbeth: Or call your branch manager
    Wol Euler: ha!
    Bleu Oleander: ha!

    Ha!


    --BELL--(1415)

    Agatha Macbeth: Could be the root of the problem
    Bruce Mowbray: [too trunk-ated for me]
    Bleu Oleander: leaf it alone
    Bruce Mowbray: ;-(
    Agatha Macbeth sighs
    Mickorod Renard: ur all barkin mad
    Wol Euler: oh, as if they were worse than your jokes :)
    Agatha Macbeth: They are :p
    Bleu Oleander: what jokes?
    Eliza Madrigal: a fait accompli
    Agatha Macbeth: Mais oui
    Agatha Macbeth: C'est vrai
    arabella Ella loves to hug trees
    Eliza Madrigal: :)
    Agatha Macbeth loves to hug Ara
    arabella Ella: (but not many on this rock)
    Eliza Madrigal: I took a picture of two trees hugging...
    arabella Ella: ah Ags perhaps I should respond privately
    arabella Ella: :)
    Agatha Macbeth: :)
    Eliza Madrigal: I'll post it into the log with Agatha's permission
    Agatha Macbeth: Natch
    Agatha Macbeth: In jpeg of course...
    Eliza Madrigal: ty :)
    Agatha Macbeth: np :)
    Calvino Rabeni: Calvino Rabeni finally heeds the call to "reboot your system now"
    Wol Euler: :)
    Eliza Madrigal: it needs a kick?
    Agatha Macbeth: Or a mouse?
    Wol Euler: reboots are retreats for computer OSes
    arabella Ella: would be nice to see that pix Eliza
    Eliza Madrigal: I'll definitely post it Ara... It is quite sweet
    Agatha Macbeth: C'est très douce cherie
    arabella Ella: thanks
    arabella Ella: merci beaucoup
    arabella Ella: (once we are into french it seems)
    Eliza Madrigal: like blueberries and the way we all were with one another
    Agatha Macbeth: Parmi les arbres...
    Agatha Macbeth: I need to know more about this blueberry thing
    Mickorod Renard: all soft and juicy?
    Eliza Madrigal: and like the forest itself... didn't think of forests as 'sweet' before...
    Agatha Macbeth: Who me?
    Eliza Madrigal: definitely juicy Mick :)
    Mickorod Renard: :)
    Eliza Madrigal: and yes quite soft
    arabella Ella: could we at least try to guess ... did you pick them and eat them?
    Agatha Macbeth: Magic blueberries...
    Eliza Madrigal: Wol would you like to explain the blueberries? :)
    Wol Euler: hmmm
    Bleu Oleander: my dogs love bleuberries
    Wol Euler: who started it, I wonder?
    Wol Euler: all the food at the retreat was fresh and organic
    Mickorod Renard: did Storm go?
    Eliza Madrigal: not this time Mick
    Wol Euler: much of it came from the farm itself, including the blueberries that we had at lunch one day, early on
    arabella Ella: how many were you in all?
    Mickorod Renard: ok,,i cud imagine him having a stock of pea shooters for blueberries
    Wol Euler: after lunch, we were talking about experiencing things-that-are, about "the is-ness of all that is"
    Wol Euler: and somebody mentioned the blueberries as an example of thing that are.
    Bleu Oleander: or were
    Wol Euler: and for the rest of the retreat, they were our totem, our token example of really-being-ness
    Mickorod Renard: :)
    arabella Ella: wow cool
    Wol Euler: it was :)
    Eliza Madrigal: :) yes... our symbol of enoughness
    Wol Euler: oh, right!
    arabella Ella: and there was i imagining you all bombarding each other with lots of fresly cut blueberries
    Wol Euler: you're right, I was wrong. They came up when discussing enoughness
    Agatha Macbeth: The odd thing is eden mentioned something about Blueberries in the one of the logs to...
    Agatha Macbeth: too
    Eliza Madrigal giggles... that might have happened after just a few more days Ara... then we would have really needed to take a collective bath....
    Agatha Macbeth: Something about 'breaking a spell'
    Mickorod Renard: yes,,u cud have had a bonding session,,rolling around in a bath of them,,naked
    Agatha Macbeth: A bondage session? ;-)
    Bleu Oleander: naked blueberries?
    Eliza Madrigal: Enoughness indeed was the same discussion Wol "all that IS" mmmm
    Mickorod Renard: i am glad u added the d
    Eliza Madrigal laughs at Bleu
    Agatha Macbeth: Even worse
    Mickorod Renard: grin
    Eliza Madrigal: yes blueberries need nothing added
    Wol Euler: well, htere was a very large bathtub, and a sauna.
    Eliza Madrigal: :)
    Agatha Macbeth coughs
    Bruce Mowbray: [then clothes do not have to be added either]
    Mickorod Renard: well,,next time,,as its 2 weeks,,u cud fill the sauna with them
    Eliza Madrigal: I like the way they were just gently included into everything...
    Bruce Mowbray: we would come out looking like na'vi
    Eliza Madrigal: hah
    Wol Euler: heheh
    Eliza Madrigal: Oh, did I answer Ara... there were 7 of us
    arabella Ella imagines a Na'Vi looking retreat group
    arabella Ella: ah ty Eliza
    Mickorod Renard: 7,,thats an interesting number
    Eliza Madrigal: it was a very nice balance
    Wol Euler nods
    Eliza Madrigal: more would have been great too though... the environment was more than accomodating
    Mickorod Renard: how big is the sauna?
    Wol Euler: I never actually went. Did you, Eliza?
    Eliza Madrigal: No... alas
    Bruce Mowbray: did the sauna have big-enoughness?
    Wol Euler: next time


    --BELL--(1430)

    Eliza Madrigal: yes... so now we have 1. onigokko, 2. sauna, 3. signing guest book
    Agatha Macbeth: 4.blueberries

    Eliza Madrigal: :)))
    Agatha Macbeth: Boogie
    Bruce Mowbray: no aflac?
    Wol Euler: oh, wait, sorry, I misunderstood what you were counting off :(
    Wol Euler: we don't actually need a lion.
    Eliza Madrigal: just a laughing loon Bruce
    Agatha Macbeth: Aslan?
    Eliza Madrigal: "Be the lion" ?
    Wol Euler grins and nods.
    Wol Euler: I have the same feeling about this as I did after the Malta retreat: at the time the days felt absolutely packed full, but in retrospect I can't figure out what we did with all the time
    Eliza Madrigal: It was restful time... very even
    Eliza Madrigal: non intrusive and nurturing
    Wol Euler nods.
    Bruce Mowbray: time contracts to the size of the things that you do.
    Eliza Madrigal: what an interesting thought, Bruce
    Wol Euler: nurturing is a good word.
    Agatha Macbeth: Parkinson's law?
    Bruce Mowbray: it also expands to fit them.
    Eliza Madrigal: It was like the food... clean, fresh, balanced
    Bleu Oleander: so would you repeat that location sometime?
    Eliza Madrigal: yes :)
    Wol Euler: yes, next year
    Wol Euler: same time, roughly
    Wol Euler: perhaps for two weeks
    Eliza Madrigal: yes depending on interest
    Wol Euler: which if it happens, I'm definitely staying for both
