    The Guardian for this meeting was Bruce Mowbray. The comments are by Bruce Mowbray.  I cannot actually "claim" GoC for this session because I was not "in attendance" for a single minute of it.  Bruce tried to log in - but couldn't rez.  Io came in his stead, but also couldn't rez - although others said they could see him.  Io then left; Bruce came back and finally rezzed, but then received an urgent RL phone call -- and so [bless his heart] Arch took over for Bruce. . . .   And so, with gratitude to Arch and no further introduction . . .

     

    Archmage Atlantis: Hello Zon, Io :)
    Zon Kwan: heya both
    Io Larkspur: sorry -- neither Bruce nor I are able to get in-world. . .
    Io Larkspur: [I cannot see anything.]
    Io Larkspur: [waiting]
    Archmage Atlantis: Ok, Io, I can see you standing on a cushion, and I can read your text.
    Archmage Atlantis: Do you see my text, Io?
    Io Larkspur: I am but a cloud to myself. . .
    Io Larkspur: You can actually SEE Io, Arch?
    Zon Kwan: I can see u too
    Archmage Atlantis: Yes
    Io Larkspur: Wow.
    Io Larkspur: amazing, this techno stuff.
    Archmage Atlantis: Ah, you sat down, Io
    Io Larkspur: I could see ONE cushion - so I grabbed it.
    Io Larkspur: Hope I'm not sitting on anyone.
    Zon Kwan: nope, it's quite empty here
    Archmage Atlantis: There are only the 3 of us here at the moment
    Archmage Atlantis: And as Zon says, the cushion you are on was empty before
    Io Larkspur: Going to log out and try again. . . brb.
    Archmage Atlantis: kk


    --BELL--

    Archmage Atlantis: I must admit, Zon......I am glad that this appears to be a "normal" session........I was arriving at the "being" sessions each time before
    Zon Kwan: "being" session ?
    Archmage Atlantis: Hello, Io.......from your posture, I'm guessing you still look to be a cloud
    Io Larkspur: I do still look to be a cloud (to myself) --
    Zon Kwan: Io try to click appearances
    Io Larkspur: and I am also glad this is a normal session.
    Archmage Atlantis: Yes, Zon, the special session over the last few days
    Zon Kwan: it helps me many times
    Archmage Atlantis: Oops, I missed the start of the bell.....oh well
    Zon Kwan: ah, yes ..those are more for the ones who are more involved in this group
    Archmage Atlantis: To my way of thinking, they were open to anyone.....but perhaps there is a sense of
    Archmage Atlantis: not sure of the word
    Archmage Atlantis: more focused on those who attend often, perhaps
    Zon Kwan: nods
    Zon Kwan: I'm just a casual visitor  . . . lol
    Archmage Atlantis: Well, I have spoken so much in sessions the last few days.......I'm fine with any topic you'd like....or with quiet meditation
    Zon Kwan: is there a RL seminar going on where ppl are ?
    Archmage Atlantis: Not that I know of, but since this is usually the most attended meeting, perhaps there is
    Archmage Atlantis: Or an sl seminar, either one
    Zon Kwan: have you been attending actively in this group ?
    Archmage Atlantis: Yes. for almost 2 years casually, but much more in the last couple of months
    Archmage Atlantis: I feel like I have seen you here fairly often, Zon.....perhaps that is just a misimpression
    Zon Kwan: I have popped in
    Zon Kwan: but not stayed long and not been in the seminars
    Zon Kwan: timing issues
    Zon Kwan: ops . . . I am called by a special person
    Archmage Atlantis: np
    Zon Kwan: bye Arch, Io
    Archmage Atlantis: Bye Zon

    Archmage Atlantis: Hello Freud :)
    Freud Jungsten: Heya.
    Archmage Atlantis: Io, is experiencing tech difficulties......so unless something changes, you and I are the only ones here at the moment
    Freud Jungsten: That is a rather painful looking position.
    Archmage Atlantis: Me? or Io?
    Freud Jungsten: Io.
    Freud Jungsten smiles
    Archmage Atlantis: Yep.....true, luckily it is only a representation, and Io let me know that there are tech difficulties
    Freud Jungsten: SL can come up with some strange problems.
    Archmage Atlantis: I must admit, I am glad to have this opportunity to speak with you..........I was reading some of the earlier logs
    Archmage Atlantis: And in one you were talking about your rl background
    Freud Jungsten: OK.
    Freud Jungsten: Why
    Freud Jungsten: ?
    Archmage Atlantis: I don't remember the language that was spoken in your home environment, but my memory is that it was related to Cherokee
    Freud Jungsten: It is Tsalagi.


    --BELL--


    Freud Jungsten: Also known as Cherokee.
    Freud Jungsten: But Cherokee is a Cree word that means people that don't speak Cree.
    Archmage Atlantis: Why am I glad to be given the chance to speak to you?.......because I had a Potawatomi friend, and you mentioned that also
    Freud Jungsten: I am much less Potawatomi than Tsalagi.
    Archmage Atlantis: I understood that from the log
    Archmage Atlantis: Hi, Darren
    Freud Jungsten: Potawatomi was the language my mom and her sisters spoke when they did not want the children to understand what they were talking about.
    Freud Jungsten: osiyo
    Archmage Atlantis: *chuckle*
    Darren Islar: hi
    Darren Islar: whata lag
    Archmage Atlantis: Yes, Io is in suspended lag
    Freud Jungsten: Actually not bad lag for me today.
    Darren Islar: well I'm sitting now...... :)
    Archmage Atlantis: :)
    Archmage Atlantis: I was talking to someone who indicated they were blind.......I was curious how one experiences sl if one is blind......even more, how does one participate?
    Archmage Atlantis: I didn't get the chance to ask.
    Freud Jungsten: There are Braille test displays.
    Darren Islar: that's an interesting question yes
    Freud Jungsten: The fingers are held stationary and the pins move up and down.
    Freud Jungsten: text displays.
    Archmage Atlantis: That's a lot of information to put into Braille text
    Freud Jungsten: Not sure about navigation and the like though.
    Darren Islar: yes, but how about moving
    Darren Islar: right
    Freud Jungsten: But there are text-only viewers.
    Freud Jungsten: http://blindsecondlife.blogspot.com/
    Darren Islar: I guess the environment needs to slow down a bit, if it comes to text
    Archmage Atlantis: ty Freud......I shall look at that site with interest
    Bruce Mowbray: FINALLY got in. . .
    Freud Jungsten: Some good info in there.
    Archmage Atlantis: Ola, Bruce
    Freud Jungsten: Heya.
    Bruce Mowbray: but still on urgent long-distance phone call. . . [puts up "BUSY" label]
    Darren Islar: hi Bruce
    Darren Islar: still a storm going on Bruce?
    Freud Jungsten: This may be the only time ever that I am the only one NOT having lag issues.... lol
    Darren Islar: :))
    Archmage Atlantis: I think the saying is that "even a stopped clock is correct 2x a day" *chuckle
    Archmage Atlantis: brb
    Freud Jungsten: brb
    Archmage Atlantis: back


    --BELL--


    Darren Islar: interesting
    Bruce Mowbray: [still on the phone -- sorry - this person REALLY needs to talk. . . . ]
    Darren Islar: even for blind people sl gives more opportunities I understand, not needing to rely on guides anymore
    Darren Islar: is ok Bruce
    Bruce Mowbray: ;-)
    Archmage Atlantis: np for me.......just glad you made it, Bruce
    Bruce Mowbray: ty.
    Archmage Atlantis: I need to depart......best of the time period you are experiencing to each of you :)
    Darren Islar: thanks Arch, see you
    Darren Islar: well one gone, one on the phone, one away for a moment, time to go for me :)
    Freud Jungsten: Ciao
    Darren Islar: bye all :)
    Freud Jungsten: Take care.
