    The Guardian for this meeting was Riddle Sideways. The comments are by Riddle Sideways.

    A simple chat with Bruce then Yakuza.
    I have a foreboding about my comments.

    Riddle Sideways: good morning, Bruce n Blub
    Bruce Mowbray: Good morning, Riddle.
    Bruce Mowbray: Just got home from New York -- trying to find Planet Earth. . .
    Riddle Sideways: I was answering emails and did not hear/see you sit down
    Bruce Mowbray: no problem -- please continue with your mails -- I just need to settle anyway.
    Riddle Sideways: "like wow man, how was the trip..."
    Bruce Mowbray: It was a total "BLAST" - as the kid I took with me put it -- And for me it was joyous. . . I love that town.
    Riddle Sideways: ah you used rent-a-good-kid
    Riddle Sideways: good way to travel
    Bruce Mowbray: actually, I was "paying" Josh for cutting down a large oak tree for free (last April). He's an artist, a brilliant 32-year-old, and had never been to the city.
    Bruce Mowbray: He spent a lot of his time in art museums/
    Bruce Mowbray: Josh is a neighbor -- lives on a farm about a mile away from mine. . . A country boy.
    Riddle Sideways: that would be the same old tree as the pictures you shared?
    Bruce Mowbray: So the big city was a TOTAL amazement for him.
    Bruce Mowbray: Yes, probably that same tree.
    Riddle Sideways: ah, that first time / noob outlook on things

    Bruce Mowbray: I've not been in SL for almost a week -- anything special happening in PaB?
    Riddle Sideways: hmmm, not sure if there is a retreat going on, maybe
    Bruce Mowbray: Oh yes -- in Stuttgart.
    Riddle Sideways: nope, that is not until Oct.10
    Riddle Sideways: but, I think Eos went already
    Bruce Mowbray: Oh -- sorry.
    Bruce Mowbray: The New Orleans one is in January, I think.

    Riddle Sideways: then there is the puzzle as time display in the square
    Bruce Mowbray: I must make a point of visiting the square again.
    Riddle Sideways: I must make a point of getting my entry up on it
    Bruce Mowbray: I posted one "puzzle" photo there, but couldn't figure out how to "join" the various parts of the board. . . so I'm not sure whether my photo is visible to others.
    Bruce Mowbray: I'm obviously not a "builder."
    Riddle Sideways: neither am I
    Riddle Sideways: there are ppl to help us
    Bruce Mowbray: Have you selected a guardian plot yet?
    Riddle Sideways: I got one long ago
    Riddle Sideways: have you?
    Bruce Mowbray: OK. Wow.
              Riddle Sideways: Hi Yaku
    Bruce Mowbray: I just got mine about a week before the NYC trip -- have planted two trees there - That's all.
              Yakuzza Lethecus: hey you both
              Bruce Mowbray: Hello, Yaku!
    Riddle Sideways: my first plot had a cabin. Then who needs walls and roof here
    Bruce Mowbray: ;-)
    Riddle Sideways: a floor/ground is nice
    Riddle Sideways: but a picnic blanket would serve
    Riddle Sideways: an inviting chair or pillow is nice too
    Bruce Mowbray: Yes, a comfortable setting for chats.
    Bruce Mowbray: Do you have a guardian plot, Yaku?
    Riddle Sideways: I never meet anybody at my plot
    Riddle Sideways: but there is a script that logs who touched something
    Riddle Sideways: and it gets many entrees
    Yakuzza Lethecus: no i never claimed one
    Bruce Mowbray: I'm at a bit of a loss to know what to put on mine --
    Bruce Mowbray: Maybe I should give it back some someone more deserving and capable could have it.
    Riddle Sideways: but who is more deserving then you
    Riddle Sideways: and that you planted a tree is enough
    Bruce Mowbray: I mean -- if there's a limited number of plots. . . someone who would use it more than I should have it.
    Bruce Mowbray: Some day the mood will stike me and I'll build a garden there, perhaps.
    Riddle Sideways: think there are still unclaimed plots
             Not sure

    Bruce Mowbray: OK. Well, guys, I have not walked with my dog for six days, so I'll be away now.
          Bruce Mowbray: May you both be well and ahppy today.
    Riddle Sideways: I got tired of mowing the grass so paved it over
          Bruce Mowbray: happy.
          Riddle Sideways: ok, bye now
          Riddle Sideways: welcome back from NYC

    Riddle Sideways: I have been distracted today with emails
    Riddle Sideways: yesterday I sent out a set of internet joke links
    Riddle Sideways: to most of my email address book
    Riddle Sideways: partly to check address validity
    Riddle Sideways: have been getting many happy replies
    Riddle Sideways: lost friends that those social nets were not maintaining
    Riddle Sideways: thought all those facebook, twitter, linkedin, myspace, et.al. were suppose to do that
    Riddle Sideways: I was thinking that more people should log their chats
    Riddle Sideways: for me to read off-line
    Riddle Sideways: my friend Karl always has great chats in RL
    Riddle Sideways: but I have lost track since we have busy lives

                    [long pause][Yak and I chat in IM about viewers and multiple logged avs]
    Yakuzza Lethecus: how to moderate good chats
    Riddle Sideways: If I could read his chat logs occasionally
    Yakuzza Lethecus: how to lead a discussion into a ,,good" chat
    Yakuzza Lethecus: or a chat into a good discussion
    Riddle Sideways: is a very skilled art
    Riddle Sideways: that I do not poccess
    Yakuzza Lethecus: the feeling of security for each of the participants to unfilteredly share associations
    Riddle Sideways: many times I hear one side of phone conversation in our house
    Riddle Sideways: then have to have somebody repeat what the other side said
    Riddle Sideways: many times they report it badly
    Riddle Sideways: I need the chat log
    Riddle Sideways: maybe, keep the voice recorder going all day
    Riddle Sideways: edit out the 23.5 hours of noise
    Yakuzza Lethecus: :)

    Yakuzza Lethecus: just writing what´s on the mind seems to be a good gift sometimes, still how to change the regular associations
    Yakuzza Lethecus: being scared on burning negative patterns deeper
    Yakuzza Lethecus: thinking on writing something good instead of just typing what´s on the own mind in the sense that the own stereotypical thinking tries to focus on more focused thoughts
    Yakuzza Lethecus: but just ,,wanting" to say something smart totally sucks!
    Yakuzza Lethecus: that´s whats happening often so i stay quiet unil something feels as if it´s prepared to get out, but often the proper help expressing thoughts is missing as well and not talking unelaborated thoughts or unexpressable thoughts preseves them just unexpressable
    Riddle Sideways: yes and no
    Riddle Sideways: waiting until the proper and full birthing time of a thought, idea, writing, paper, book
    Riddle Sideways: could be best
    Riddle Sideways: but, what about putting out as much as is ready now
    Riddle Sideways: and having others colaborate

    Yakuzza Lethecus: the mäeutik of thoughts

         This... is what I love about this group.
         I have to think these thoughts up brand new, right now, as if newly minted and there is always somebody that knows the scientific, technical, latin, philospecial or babble term that has always described it.  I quick go to wikipedia and there it is...  the one word that says it all.  For 24 centurys this has been the greek word for what I just dis
        Is that at all like the real Native Africans living for 24 centuries in a place and having some British guy proclaim it GeorgeTown.  No, I thought not.

    Riddle Sideways: however, it would not be yours only
    Yakuzza Lethecus: is any thought our own ?
    Riddle Sideways: probably not, but many think their's are
    Yakuzza Lethecus: i wouldn´t be here if i wouldn´t think that this envionenment wouldn´t have a postive influence on my thinking
    Riddle Sideways: true
    Yakuzza Lethecus: anyway, this is basicly why i am in SL in general and will be a subject even in a year for me
    Yakuzza Lethecus: i can listen to lectures, i can read but having a social community and associating idea´s with the picture of other ppl is the best way in learning things
    Riddle Sideways: seems mäeutik has been being kicked around since 4th century BC
    Yakuzza Lethecus: when i think of you i think from parajumps up to judaeism
    Riddle Sideways: thank you
    Riddle Sideways: this circle courtyard meeting place of minds
    Riddle Sideways: is so Socrates-Plato-Aristotle

    Yakuzza Lethecus: i will have dinner, thanks very much riddle!
    Riddle Sideways: and I need to go to work
    Riddle Sideways: bye Yak


    Ok, My foreboding was missplaced.
    It was not the feeling that I would type something stupid, innane, critical, politically incorrect, judgemental, prejudgice, wrong, filthy, ung-dly, comdemning, etc.
    No, my 7th sence was alert to the fact that I would edit-save, edit-save, edit-wiki login timeout crash no save no $200 no joy.
    I will NOT start an email thread from hell on this issue, but it is the 3rd time it has happened to me.
