    The Guardian for this meeting was Eliza Madrigal. The comments are by Eliza Madrigal.


    Eliza Madrigal looks outside to see that the little black and white cat is there again today... speaking of being seen...
    SophiaSharon Larnia: smiles
    Eliza Madrigal: he's less skittish by the day
    Eden Haiku: Miewwww...
    Susan Aloix: :)
    Eliza Madrigal: he's nearly comfortable enough here to be pet
    Pema Pera: :-)
    SophiaSharon Larnia: put a little food out there, a little bit away, you're probably doing that though
    SophiaSharon Larnia: but then you really will have a pet :)
    Eliza Madrigal: hehehe
    Liza Deischer: probably :)
    Eliza Madrigal: He may be a little too mature to bring into the house, but fine as an outdoor pet if he wants to stay
    SophiaSharon Larnia: I remeber once, two dogs came to my old house, we fed them, they slept on the warm floor boards over the furnace, the next day they left, never to be seen again. I always wondered where they were going
    Eliza Madrigal: hahah... just passers by?
    SophiaSharon Larnia: yes
    Liza Deischer: probably to another place that provides food :)
    Bleu Oleander: aren't we all?
    SophiaSharon Larnia: smiles
    Eliza Madrigal imagines the feeling of sleeping on warm floorboards
    Eliza Madrigal: Ah, nice Bleu
    Liza Deischer: you are just taking the words out of my mouth Bleu :)
    Bleu Oleander: :)

    Eliza Madrigal: :::waves to those who must go:::::
    SophiaSharon Larnia: no Arch :)
    SophiaSharon Larnia: sometimes after interesting sessions, I feel the need of a nap
    SophiaSharon Larnia: even for 20 mins
    Eliza Madrigal relates
    Archmage Atlantis: My clock seems to say it has only been 20 minutes into this session
    SophiaSharon Larnia: the one hour discussions seem to be the right balance.
    SophiaSharon Larnia: /is thinking how quiet Bruce has been today :)
    Eden Haiku: Oh Arch, it's because we were here at 6am SLT and many of us have been posting Time reports during the last week, so we may give the impression that we have been doing this for a loooong time:)
    SophiaSharon Larnia: true :)
    Archmage Atlantis: Io i c
    Eden Haiku: Tapped on his shoulder earlier, he is busy with something, but ok.
    Eliza Madrigal: I've been excited for Friday all week ... so much to be shared...
    SophiaSharon Larnia: smiles
    Eliza Madrigal: maybe we poured most of it into reports
    Eliza Madrigal: hehe
    Eden Haiku: The time experiments have been really powerful.
    Bruce Mowbray: Sorry, folks -- I'm reading every word - - just also pre-occupied with a RL "situation" this morning.
    SophiaSharon Larnia: my reports start like some!!! of my emails, I pour out so much text and delete
    Eliza Madrigal: Oh, okay Bruce :) Thanks
    Eliza Madrigal: It sounds like you may need a 'spill over' place
    Eliza Madrigal: @Sharon
    SophiaSharon Larnia: no problem Bruce! You have such insightful comments
    Eliza Madrigal: indeed
    Eden Haiku: Especially today Bruce (dies laughing)
    SophiaSharon Larnia: yes, the spill over place used to be the blogs that are lost on the net forever
    SophiaSharon Larnia: hehe Eden
    Eliza Madrigal: from last week to this one I felt like I didn't 'forget' the exploration... like I began it last week and didn't leave it
    Bruce Mowbray: Thanks, Sharon. OK Mischief is now managed in RL. You have my complete attention now.
    Eliza Madrigal grins at HP reference
    Archmage Atlantis: And Blub's also?
    Eden Haiku: Are you satisfied with the result Bruce?
    SophiaSharon Larnia: a few times I 'forgot' Eliza, but remembering didn't intimidate me as much
    Archmage Atlantis: Koya wants to know
    Bruce Mowbray: The "result" in RL is all right. . . and yes, Blub is also watching everything here and letting himself be watched.
    SophiaSharon Larnia: smiles
    SophiaSharon Larnia watches blub
    Eden Haiku: Very good at letting himself be watched Blub...a star!
    Archmage Atlantis: A Haiku then
    Eliza Madrigal: :)
    SophiaSharon Larnia: and sees his round fishyness
    Bruce Mowbray: Eliza -- Are you letting the kitty "see" you?
    Eliza Madrigal: he is playing happily just now...
    Eliza Madrigal: but yes, amazing that such a small creature has such large eyes....
    Bruce Mowbray: the better to see you with, my dear!
    Eliza Madrigal: he walks by garden buddha, who is seeing clearly today.. no weeds covering his face
    SophiaSharon Larnia: :)
    Eden Haiku: ;)
    Eliza Madrigal: Haha O.O
    SophiaSharon Larnia: :D
    Eden Haiku: 0.0
    Archmage Atlantis: Eyes are what an infant sees first, amoung humans, I think
    Eden Haiku: Is it?
    Eden Haiku: Mirrors of the soul.
    Eliza Madrigal: yes, and I think our eyes don't 'grow'... we grow into them...
    SophiaSharon Larnia: nods
    Eden Haiku: We had the same eyes as babies?
    SophiaSharon Larnia: ooky thought in a way, but yes
    Eliza Madrigal: yes... my oldest daughter's eyes took so much of her face... looked like a beautiful 'alien'
    Eden Haiku: The iris you mean?
    SophiaSharon Larnia: well, it's 75% the size of the adult eye
    Archmage Atlantis: Dang, I liked my baby picturesl....it was around 8 or 9 they got too old
    Eliza Madrigal: Ah
    SophiaSharon Larnia: but proportional to the amount of growing the body does when developing, HUGE
    Archmage Atlantis: The entire eye
    Eden Haiku: What do you man Arch?
    Archmage Atlantis: And the skin around it
    SophiaSharon Larnia: brb
    Archmage Atlantis: Yea, that was a good misspell, "man" vs "mean"
    Eliza Madrigal: it is so funny how things overlap here ... one wonders whether one is remembering lots that took place and they didn't notice... or whether there is some inspiration that brings it about
    Eden Haiku: Oh, sorry Arch, I meant "mean' about 8 or 9?
    Eliza Madrigal: so someone says 'eye' and there is memory of a million moments in just the last week... things about eyes..
    SophiaSharon Larnia: wb Yakuzza
    Archmage Atlantis: One has to "man up" around that time in existence
    Eden Haiku: Which eye watch I?
    Yakuzza Lethecus: thx, hey arch :)
    Eliza Madrigal: :) third eye?
    Archmage Atlantis: Yes, tyhe 3rd I
    Eliza Madrigal: "eye in the sky... looking at you... I can read your mind..."
    Archmage Atlantis: Oly because it was cracked open to be read
    Eliza Madrigal: :)
    Yakuzza Lethecus: you´ve not been here in the time session arch right ?
    SophiaSharon Larnia: one time I was in a car accident and wacked the rearview mirror with the middle of my forehead, I did worry about my third eye, wondering if the chakra there had been harmed
    Eden Haiku: Hello Yakuzza!
    Eliza Madrigal: Arch, 9 seems a bit young to 'man up'
    Yakuzza Lethecus: hey eden :)
    Eliza Madrigal: :)) Sharon
    Eden Haiku: Oh SophiaSharon....
    Eliza Madrigal: Those are comments only you make... love that!!!
    SophiaSharon Larnia: huh? :)
    Archmage Atlantis: It was a different time
    SophiaSharon Larnia: laughs
    Eliza Madrigal: like the mess comment.... just happy to help
    SophiaSharon Larnia: i was at a festival, and we were crawling over each other in a small space
    SophiaSharon Larnia: laughs
    SophiaSharon Larnia: I think Eden understands what I was saying :)
    Eliza Madrigal: :)
    Eliza Madrigal: Eden knows all
    Eliza Madrigal: even when not wearing her turban
    SophiaSharon Larnia: it happened in a time of my life where the third eye had gotten stronger with no control over it
    Archmage Atlantis: My Mother taught me to be a Southern Gentleman, My mind taught me to explore that, My being taught me to embrace that, my heart taught me love.......I need no do overs
    SophiaSharon Larnia: and no I wasnt driving
    Eden Haiku: Yakuzza, your comments about being uncomfortable with the fact that you did not go to college were so interesting (In Storm's session Thursday morning). When I was reading the log, I felt you were doing the "being seen' excercise of the Time experiments. It was really nice to see you opening like that,
    Eliza Madrigal: that's very interesting Sharon.. is that what caused you to learn about chakras ?
    SophiaSharon Larnia: no :)
    Eliza Madrigal: :) @ Arch re no do overs
    Eden Haiku: (donninh her turban) sees Sharon's third eye in perfect condition and shining with blue light!
    SophiaSharon Larnia: smiles
    Eliza Madrigal grins widely
    SophiaSharon Larnia: I let it wink, but it mostly sleeps
    Eden Haiku: Oh, we need to close it most of the time in this men's world. Winking at Arch :)
    Archmage Atlantis: K, tho gay, I am mainly male
    SophiaSharon Larnia gets flakier and flakier :)
    Eliza Madrigal: hahaha
    Eden Haiku: Got a beautiful "darshan" of my "raging fierce need of approval" lately.
    SophiaSharon Larnia: the nibbling on crackers thing seem to control the floaty feeling I get from crown opening
    Eden Haiku: nibbling sugar especially Sharon :) Shakti loves sugar they used to say in the ashram where I lived for a while,
    Eliza Madrigal: your report for the time session was is so moving Eden, so lovely.....
    SophiaSharon Larnia: oh??
    SophiaSharon Larnia: yes Eden, I had to read it sevral times
    Eliza Madrigal: the transformation of 'lofty' spiritual aspiration to everything as aspiration...
    Eliza Madrigal: found it deeply profound
    Eliza Madrigal: and to be about integration
    Eliza Madrigal: ?
    Archmage Atlantis: One of youse said "yoiu cannot understand" what it is to be a woman........to men who wish to be woment
    Eden Haiku: Thanks ELiza. I also contributed some response to an online discussion, quoting a , too long I guess, quote from Ezechiel, and some guy said : "Completely irrelevant spam" ....
    Archmage Atlantis: None of us can understand, imo, what another experiences
    Eliza Madrigal: yes well many forums are like that...
    Eliza Madrigal: and many people are antagonistic to anything biblical
    SophiaSharon Larnia: why I stay away from them :)
    Eden Haiku: Oh Arch, I meant it as "you are one of us " ;)
    Eliza Madrigal: that's why pab is so wonderful...
    Eliza Madrigal: well, one reason :)
    Eden Haiku: Exactly, it made me appreciate PaB even more :)
    Archmage Atlantis: Then thanks to Pema and Storm
    Eliza Madrigal: yes there is a flexibility.. the same sort which has been showing up in reports perhaps...
    Eden Haiku: @Arch, one of the girls :)
    Archmage Atlantis: Who had the misfortune to be born as male
    Eliza Madrigal: I felt like reading the reports were more looking through other's eyes from their views... than ever before, rather than someone 'telling' and someone 'listening'
    Bruce Mowbray: For my Time Report this week, I'd already written something else -- then the experience with my friend's grief was such a powerful thing that I threw out the earlier report.
    SophiaSharon Larnia: nods
    Bruce Mowbray: It was a bit like mirrors looking at each other. . .
    Eden Haiku: is curious about Bruce's first draft....Care to share it too?
    SophiaSharon Larnia: your perspective in that was thought provoking, too
    Eliza Madrigal: so it was more like I 'was' Eden, kneeling.. 'was' Sharon, welcoming SIlence
    Eliza Madrigal: Oh, indeed Bruce
    Eliza Madrigal: thank you'
    Bruce Mowbray: and those mirrors' deciding how much of themselves to allow to be seen by the other.
    Eliza Madrigal: mmm, nods
    Archmage Atlantis: Sees fish
    Bruce Mowbray: Perhaps it's a bit like that with "men" and "male," Arch.
    Eden Haiku: Yes, I had the same immersive feeling Eliza, and Sophia your little play reminded me of games I played by myself when I was a child...
    SophiaSharon Larnia: :)
    Eliza Madrigal: ooooh yes!
    Eliza Madrigal: that's what I meant in my screwy sentence earlier (typed while eating cake for breakfast haha)
    SophiaSharon Larnia: I didn't mean it to be welcomeing silence, just bein to see
    SophiaSharon Larnia: being*
    SophiaSharon Larnia: (sorry have a cat totally smooshing all over me atm)
    Eliza Madrigal: ah, yes.... I add a bit of what I'm working with in a way....
    SophiaSharon Larnia: thank you Eden!
    Bruce Mowbray: he, selene.
    Eliza Madrigal: in a nursery school, the kids play in various corners... some with costumes and some cooking...
    Bruce Mowbray: hi.
    Eliza Madrigal: each little corner has a whole world going on
    Archmage Atlantis: I had 4 koi, 2 died, I morned for a while.......ithey remaining 2 seemed to do so also.....but that may me only human language and perception
    SophiaSharon Larnia: hi Selene :)
    Eliza Madrigal: Hi Selene :)
    Selene Northman: hi Bruce ,hi everyone :)
    Selene Northman: hi Eliza :-)
    Eden Haiku: Passed on the LM for the cool immersive exhibit at Aho Museum that Bleu gave us.
    Eliza Madrigal: TY Eden
    SophiaSharon Larnia: great! I'll check it out :))
    Eden Haiku: Been there, it is an amazing experience, very immersive and much fun!
    Bruce Mowbray: Grief is not uncommon among animals, Arch. Elephants have been know to grieve themselves to death.
    Eliza Madrigal: oh, hope to make time for that Eden
    Eden Haiku: Trying to post the landmark in the log but it didn't work...
    SophiaSharon Larnia: oh I'd like the learn how to do that too Eden
    Eliza Madrigal: question of the week! me too
    SophiaSharon Larnia: and Bruce, what a sad picture
    Eliza Madrigal nods
    Eliza Madrigal: thank you all for staying this morning... know not quite as exciting as the time session :)
    Eden Haiku: http://slurl.com/secondlife/NMC%20Ca...rience%20It%21
    Bruce Mowbray: http://www.google.com/images?hl=&q=g...iw=994&bih=639

    SophiaSharon Larnia: ohhh
    Archmage Atlantis: Two died, Two lived.....they now, after 3 months....are active and alive
    Eden Haiku: I find the time sessions confusing sometimes Eliza, it feels good to be a smaller group too sometimes :)
    Eliza Madrigal: :) yes me too... but it is a little disorienting to change...
    Eliza Madrigal: Is it similar to the drop between voice and regular session Fridays?
    Eliza Madrigal: i've experienced that just once, but didn't stay for the whole 1pm session that day to see
    SophiaSharon Larnia: I guess it would depend on what the topics are
    Eliza Madrigal: true
    Eden Haiku: A different feel, cannot put my finger on it.
    Archmage Atlantis: Voice.... another topic......lost someone in part because my voice was not as deep in sound as my thoughts for him.....life is
    Eden Haiku: Today, the silence at the beiginning of 7 am felt awkward. We were all "expecting" soemthing to happen it seems :))
    Eliza Madrigal: now that the hour is closing a million things spring to mind
    Eliza Madrigal: yes Eden I noticed that too!
    Bruce Mowbray: @ Arch -- as a child raised in a chaotic, violent, family of addicts, I always let my dog "see" me -- all of my emotional twists and turns. He never thought me crazy and never denied my needs for his comforting.
    Eliza Madrigal smiles at Bruce :)
    SophiaSharon Larnia: it didnt feel awkward to me, I like that, for a little while
    Eden Haiku: We warmed up yes :) Well there will be other times Eliza :) Thanks for the session and enjoy your week end everyone!
    SophiaSharon Larnia: smiles @ Bruce too :))
    Eliza Madrigal: Bye Eden have a lovely weekend
    Archmage Atlantis: Pick up FL cat
    Bruce Mowbray: bye, Eden. and THANKS!
    SophiaSharon Larnia: bye Eden :)
    Eden Haiku: And a big hug to Bear!
    Bruce Mowbray: I'll give big hugs to Bear!
    Eden Haiku: And a gentle pat on the glass to Blub
    SophiaSharon Larnia: :D
    Bruce Mowbray: OK.;-)
    Eliza Madrigal: what a wonderful dream session to read from wed bruce, and how bear got his name...
    Eliza Madrigal: appreciated that very much
    Eliza Madrigal: one day maybe I'll tell a story of recurring dog dreams... in the end very healing too
    Archmage Atlantis: Yea, "conversations are recorded" ....u........I think I am supposed to apologize here in this time
    SophiaSharon Larnia: looking forward to the dreams Eliza :)
    SophiaSharon Larnia: Have to go myself, bye everyone

    Selene Northman: bye sharon

    Bruce Mowbray: bye, Eliza and thanks!
    Eliza Madrigal: maybe see you all later :) bye for now
    Archmage Atlantis: Ffo all the fish
    Archmage Atlantis: dolphins, can't live with them...can't live without them
    Bruce Mowbray: Mickorod left those four circling fish here last week. . . I thought Storm might have netted them and taken them to sea by now, but not so.
    Archmage Atlantis: smile.....he may not see them.....or he may not wish to do that
    Bruce Mowbray: yeah, that's what I figured, too.
    Archmage Atlantis: SL is close to the Dream Walk
    Bruce Mowbray: ? "Dream Walk"?
    Archmage Atlantis: Austtralia....
    Bruce Mowbray: Oh yes! The Songlines.
    Archmage Atlantis: yes
    Bruce Mowbray: One can also do a sort of "Walk-about" in SL.
    Archmage Atlantis: yep
    Bruce Mowbray: I did a walkabout once in RL. Probably the wisest thing I ever did.
    Bruce Mowbray: walking for 89 straight days.
    Bruce Mowbray: Would very much like to do it again.
    Bruce Mowbray: Well folks, this talk about walking has me motivated to get out there with Bear.
    Archmage Atlantis: Like to...and ....need to are different
    Bruce Mowbray: Thanks for the session - and may you all have a happy day and weekend.
    Bruce Mowbray: I would both like to and need to - go for a walk -- Right now. . . so bye, everyone.
