    Bleu (bleu.oleander): don't forget to include a note card
    Yaku (yakuzza.lethecus): did all the retreaters return home savely ? there is a lot of snow on the east coast.
    Bleu (bleu.oleander): hey Jan
    Yaku (yakuzza.lethecus): hey jan

    Bleu (bleu.oleander): yes, blank boards now Aph
    Jan Qualia: Hi All
    Aphrodite Macbain: Are you roasting marshmallows Bruce?
    Bruce (bruce.mowbray): no -- Brucie is offering marshmallows to the llama.
    Adams Rubble: /me giggles
    Agatha Macbeth: Hi all :)
    Aphrodite Macbain: Very thoughtful

    Aphrodite Macbain: It's easier to copy and paste into a notecard
    Adams Rubble: Notecards can be very long
    Aphrodite Macbain: Editing a notecard is tricky
    Bruce (bruce.mowbray): [Brucie is afk to get Cheerios . . . brb]
    druth Vlodovic: just a thought on the dome itself
    Aphrodite Macbain: I've finally succumbed to buying $L so I can play with the image - it's more complicated this time as I'm making a composite

    More about art project:

    Bruce (bruce.mowbray): Does more need to be said about the Art as Being Project -- at noon next Sunday. . . Feb 6th -- and the Kira Dome...
    Agatha Macbeth: I can';t remember if I was here last week or the week before
    Bleu (bleu.oleander): that's it Bruce .... come as one of your selves :)
    Aphrodite Macbain: I don't know Bruce. Does anyone have any questions about it?
    Bleu (bleu.oleander): photos installed this week
    Riddle Sideways: is the project just for guardians ?
    Bleu (bleu.oleander): yes
    Riddle Sideways: ok, had a non-guardian ask
    Aphrodite Macbain: How are you managing with the retreat Bruce. Have you decided on the times?
    Bleu (bleu.oleander): guardian artists who have selves

    The forthcoming SL retreat, time difference and other problems:

    Bruce (bruce.mowbray): Ahhh. . . The in-world retreat is shaping up nicely.
    Bruce (bruce.mowbray): We have nine signed up. . .
    Bruce (bruce.mowbray): and please tell me if you want to be on our list.
    Bruce (bruce.mowbray): We will begin Friday evening (exact time yet to be decided) -- and probably have three sessions on Saturday and Sunday. . .
    Adams Rubble: nine is the number last time
    Bruce (bruce.mowbray): (Feb 11-13).
    Bruce (bruce.mowbray): yes, we were a Nine-Headed Being last time.
    Aphrodite Macbain: What would work best as a time on Friday? 5?
    Riddle Sideways: /me still does not know, but thinks can make some of the sessions
    Bruce (bruce.mowbray): I will be sending out messages to all who have signed up. . .
    Bleu (bleu.oleander): is it OK to attend a few of the sessions?
    Bruce (bruce.mowbray): Looking right now like Friday night needs to be able 5 p.m., though.
    Bruce (bruce.mowbray): We'd like everyone to attend the FIRST session, if possible...
    Jan Qualia: any later than 1 pm rules out Liza
    Bruce (bruce.mowbray): so that we can build a container for the retreat...
    Aphrodite Macbain: important to attend the friday session, right?
    Bruce (bruce.mowbray): and there will probably be folks who are not able to attend all of the sessions on Sat or Sunday.
    Jan Qualia: 4 pm is 12 midnight for me and 1am for liza
    Bruce (bruce.mowbray): yes, if possible, please attend the Friday night session.
    Aphrodite Macbain: or Frida if it's 5 pm
    Bruce (bruce.mowbray): btw -- I am NOT the leader of the retreat -- I am simply coordinating it - to get to going, as it were.
    Aphrodite Macbain: Friday
    Agatha Macbeth: Who's Frida?
    Aphrodite Macbain: Kahlo
    Riddle Sideways: Friday 6pm starts shabot
    Agatha Macbeth: Ah
    Aphrodite Macbain: oh dear
    Bruce (bruce.mowbray): We will discuss the exact times of the session via email - later this week.
    Bleu (bleu.oleander): who is leading the retreat Bruce?
    Aphrodite Macbain: Maybe we should start at noon on Friday
    Bruce (bruce.mowbray): Liza and I have already discussed this -- She cannot be part of the retreat because she will be away all day on Sunday...
    Bruce (bruce.mowbray): but if others want to begin earlier on Friday, we can discuss that in emails, OK?
    Aphrodite Macbain: Does there need to be a leader or does the group manage itself?
    Bruce (bruce.mowbray): noon would be fine with me -- but we'll check it out with all who have signed up . . . later.
    Aphrodite Macbain: OK Bruce
    Jan Qualia: maybe it would be easier if I dropped out as I am the only European in then?
    Bruce (bruce.mowbray): The group pretty much manages itself -- or at least the last retreat did.
    Jan Qualia: timing would be easier
    Bruce (bruce.mowbray): no no no please do NOT drop out, Jan.
    Bruce (bruce.mowbray): But you've not yet signed up, either....
    Bruce (bruce.mowbray): Did you want to be on the list, Jan?
    Aphrodite Macbain: So the group decided the focus? Sorry, this is new to me.
    Jan Qualia: I signed up as Zen
    Riddle Sideways: yes, mostly
    Aphrodite Macbain: k
    Bruce (bruce.mowbray): Oh Sorry, Jan -- I've got you then!
    Riddle Sideways: :)
    Bruce (bruce.mowbray): @ Aph -- We will discuss 'focus' during our first session on Friday. . .
    Bruce (bruce.mowbray): rather than taking more time for it in this meeting.
    Bruce (bruce.mowbray): Just wanted to remind everyone that the in-world retreat will be happening. . . and we'll probably start about noon on Friday or there-abouts...
    Bruce (bruce.mowbray): (to be decided later via emails. . . )I especially do NOT want to exclude the Europeans because of scheduling.
    Jan Qualia: it's more a collaborative peer type group rather than one with a dominant leader if it is anything like the last one
    Bruce (bruce.mowbray): Yes, I do hope so, Jan/Zen.
    Aphrodite Macbain: Someone asked who was leading the retreat but it appears no one is
    Jan Qualia: a sharing group
    Aphrodite Macbain: Nice. I like that.
    Aphrodite Macbain: Thank you for taking on this cordinating responsibility Bruce
    Bruce (bruce.mowbray): My please, Aph.
    Bruce (bruce.mowbray): pleasure*

    Some silliness as usual :)

    Jan Qualia: do my hands look a bit big?

    Jan Qualia: not that big
    Bruce (bruce.mowbray): yes, Jan -- hands and feet tend to be exaggerated in SL. . . . (!!)
    Riddle Sideways: do my hands look too big also?
    Jan Qualia: you don't have that worry Riddle
    Agatha Macbeth: NNNo
    Jan Qualia: some of your stars are a bit large though....
    Riddle Sideways: you humanoids are always so vain
    Aphrodite Macbain: What is that pile on the floor?
    Adams Rubble: hey
    Agatha Macbeth: I didn't do it
    Jan Qualia: your colors are nice though..
    Riddle Sideways: fruit or llama
    Bruce (bruce.mowbray): That "pile on the floor" is Brucies fruit offering to the llama.
    Aphrodite Macbain: It's moving!
    Agatha Macbeth: /me feels moved
    Aphrodite Macbain: Healthier than arshmallows I guess
    Aphrodite Macbain: What else do we need to talk about?
    Jan Qualia: think I'm putting on weight
    Jan Qualia: need a detox
    Aphrodite Macbain: It continues to move, are you offerig us fruit Bruce?
