    The Guardian for this meeting was Calvino Rabeni. The lack of comments is by Calvino Rabeni.

    Calvino Rabeni: Hi Cinda and Arch
    Lucinda Lavender: ah...hi:)
    Lucinda Lavender: was chopping olives:)
    Calvino Rabeni: was chopping cabbage :)
    Lucinda Lavender: :)))
    Archmage Atlantis: Where did Lucinda go?,,,,ad Hi Cal

    Lucinda Lavender: I are right here:)
    Calvino Rabeni: Hello iwandertoo ..
    Lucinda Lavender: Hi susan:)
    iwandertoo Resident: waves
    Archmage Atlantis: Cabbage and olives
    Lucinda Lavender: hmmm what else shall we conjure?
    Archmage Atlantis: red or green, black or green?
    Lucinda Lavender: black..for the olives
    Calvino Rabeni: conjuring often produces a rabbit
    Lucinda Lavender: yes:)
    Archmage Atlantis: Hmmm, corned beef, cabbage and olives
    Lucinda Lavender: or a salad
    Calvino Rabeni: some magicians may go for something more IMPRESSIVE though, like an Elephant
    Lucinda Lavender: :)))
    Calvino Rabeni: The problem is, everyone agrees on the bunny, but the Elephant is always a subject of dispute
    Archmage Atlantis: Hey, the Elephant is a peep
    Lucinda Lavender: :)
    Archmage Atlantis: The bunny is a kid
    Archmage Atlantis: I love them as fellow entities
    Calvino Rabeni: And the magicians take something apart .. like a person .. and challenge the audience about how it might be put back together
    Archmage Atlantis: If the audience does not see.....well perhaps there is no magic, only slight of hand
    Lucinda Lavender: ll is imagining a game in which everyone grabs a dictionary finds a word for the magiican
    Archmage Atlantis: grins
    Calvino Rabeni: That would be a great act .. a combination of magic and improv
    Archmage Atlantis: all words gave magic
    Lucinda Lavender: thought maybe so...
    Archmage Atlantis: all who speak are magicians
    Lucinda Lavender: heads for the bookshelf...
    Calvino Rabeni: Some magicians play with that idea.. to seem to give the audience complete control
    Calvino Rabeni: and some even do their act on the city streets rather than the stage
    Archmage Atlantis: Awh, you got my tricks figured out, Cal
    Lucinda Lavender: and now has taken off...The Dictionary of Word Play
    Calvino Rabeni: I've liked David Blaine for his urban settings
    Calvino Rabeni: http://davidblaine.com/
    Lucinda Lavender: during the next pause I will grab a word for the magician
    Archmage Atlantis: A dictionary is a history.......living words, another thing
    Calvino Rabeni: Great Cinda :)
    Calvino Rabeni: So many books.. so little time .. I'd also like to read this book on the crossing of the disciplines
    Archmage Atlantis: Lucinda......you do know, I assume, that Archmage translates to Highest Wizard
    Calvino Rabeni: of magic and neuroscience
    Calvino Rabeni: http://www.sleightsofmind.com/
    Lucinda Lavender: yes:)..have always known...
    Calvino Rabeni: I
    Archmage Atlantis: I am not suprised
    Archmage Atlantis: But did not know
    Calvino Rabeni: I have always conjectured, the arts of this magician were tempered, in the halls of commerce as well as the bayous
    Archmage Atlantis: I am the dustbin of our past
    Lucinda Lavender: it is great to know wizards...
    Lucinda Lavender: wizards of past present and future:)
    Archmage Atlantis: When the lady and the warror come, I will be here

    Calvino Rabeni: I was once a promising amateur magician .. until one day I entered an underground cavern, full of huge crystals, much bigger than a human being
    Calvino Rabeni: it was far underground
    Calvino Rabeni: and the blast from my wand was fractured into may images and directions
    Archmage Atlantis: Hi, Paradise....that was quite a bustle/skirt
    Calvino Rabeni: and reflected upon myself in myriad ways
    Calvino Rabeni: the force from that blast is still reverberating
    Calvino Rabeni: and though I meditate daily it has not returned to quiescence
    Archmage Atlantis: That is good Cal........the blast is part of the learning
    Paradise Tennant: smiles all round hiya cal .. arch iwandertoo :)
    Calvino Rabeni: Hi Paradise :)
    iwandertoo Resident: waves
    Calvino Rabeni: http://www.stormchaser.ca/caves/naica/TN300_Naica_06.jpg

    Archmage Atlantis: Ho, ho Paradise
    Calvino Rabeni: So from that day on I have been wantering, too
    Archmage Atlantis: Ah, Susan.......

    iwandertoo Resident: thank you
    Calvino Rabeni: Good evening Pema :)
    Pema Pera: Hi everybody!
    Paradise Tennant: hiya pema !

    Archmage Atlantis: Domo Origoto, Pema
    Pema Pera: Susan, don't you want to come sit near the water? :-)
    iwandertoo Resident: thank you. i'm good here.
    Calvino Rabeni: Cinda was here and working on a conjuration but it backfired and she disappeared ... almost coincidentally with Paradise arriving
    Archmage Atlantis: Then that choice is respected Susan
    iwandertoo Resident: thank you
    Paradise Tennant: smiles life is all about concincidence
    Calvino Rabeni: If I am not mistaken, a master magician has the ability to travel long distances riding on mere words
    Calvino Rabeni: especially in time
    Calvino Rabeni: WB Cinda
    Pema Pera: in SL we are all master magicians :-)
    Lucinda Lavender: :)
    Paradise Tennant: smiles at lucinda gtsy :)))
    Lucinda Lavender: phew:)
    Lucinda Lavender: was sent to nowhere land just as I was looking up a word for the magician:)
    Pema Pera: sorry, I just heard that another Japanese nuclear reactor had an explosion
    Pema Pera: so I think I'll leave to watch the news
    Lucinda Lavender: oh dear!
    Pema Pera: my apologies
    Lucinda Lavender: yes so sorry
    Pema Pera: (we have the Japanese channel here at home, NHK)
    Calvino Rabeni: Ouch Pema .. OK take care

    Auguste Wolfhunter: An I the one who's buried?
    Aphrodite Macbain: what thoughts are those arch?
    Aphrodite Macbain: No yo're standig tall next to Arch Nakey
    Auguste Wolfhunter: Nice arch. You found a new place to dance.
    Calvino Rabeni: You are quite properly unburied, Auguste
    Archmage Atlantis: Odd how the mind carries the message......the eyes for me suppliment it.....my cats have smell
    Archmage Atlantis: My fish, not sure
    Calvino Rabeni: If possible I will send a spirit double, also to dance
    Aphrodite Macbain: wher are you dancing arch?
    Auguste Wolfhunter: Am I facing the group? I'm Sorry I cant sit.
    Aphrodite Macbain: no your back is to us but that's OK
    Archmage Atlantis: The black snake who live under the driveway.......he also speaks
    Calvino Rabeni: You are facing away from the group Auguste
    Aphrodite Macbain: pondering the sunset
    Auguste Wolfhunter: Oh, That's just the landlord, Arch
    Aphrodite Macbain: what says the black snake?
    Aphrodite Macbain: pay up or slse?
    Aphrodite Macbain: else
    Archmage Atlantis: He says, I am here, this planet is ours, you humans have the decisions
    Auguste Wolfhunter: Right before he gets eaten by the pig.
    Archmage Atlantis: You already ate of the fruit of knowledge
    Calvino Rabeni: WB Pema
    Aphrodite Macbain: the planet belongs to the snakes or humans?
    Bleu Oleander: hi Pema
    Auguste Wolfhunter: hi, Pena!
    Paradise Tennant: hiya pema :)
    Archmage Atlantis: Now eat of the fruit of life
    Aphrodite Macbain: Hi Pema
    Pema Pera: hello everybody!
    Lucinda Lavender: Welcome Pema
    iwandertoo Resident: waves

    Paradise Tennant: must be a very difficult time for you pema
    Pema Pera: well, it's a real tragedy for Japan, what is going on (but don't let me interrupt the conversation)
    Aphrodite Macbain: Have you spoke to people there?
    Archmage Atlantis: Difficult, yes, and proud.......the systems in place in Japan protected many, not all, but many more
    Pema Pera: yes, but nobody directly in the area hit hardest
    Pema Pera: I have a visitor in Princeton, for two month, who grew up in that area
    Aphrodite Macbain: How awful for hm
    Pema Pera: he was stunned watching pictures of wasteland where whole villages were, until a few days ago -- he can now never go back to the place he grew up
    Archmage Atlantis: Aph, life happens....
    Archmage Atlantis: Andrew happened
    Pema Pera: and there are towns with more than ten thousand inhabitants, where half the people are probably buried or washed out to sea
    Archmage Atlantis: We learned

    Aphrodite Macbain: What?
    Auguste Wolfhunter: Arch, they still need compassion.
    Archmage Atlantis: Yes mam, both compassion and resolve are needed
    Aphrodite Macbain: what do we learn? Arch?
    Aphrodite Macbain: Life happens?
    Archmage Atlantis: We learn the levels of reality
    Aphrodite Macbain: ?
    Auguste Wolfhunter: We learn like in Camus ' the Plague.
    Paradise Tennant: something of that dimension .. just renders shock .. so very hard to grasp ...
    Pema Pera: yes
    Aphrodite Macbain: yes. I'm more stunned than informed
    Auguste Wolfhunter: Shock is natural at first: then a call to action.
    Aphrodite Macbain: Must be such a challenge for those "in charge"
    Lucinda Lavender: everything that seemed stable feels lost for some time
    Pema Pera: and having 300,000 people evacuated because of a meltdown in nuclear reactors doesn't help the situation either . . .
    Aphrodite Macbain: umm no
    Paradise Tennant: how many nuclear reactors are affected ?
    Pema Pera: the pictures are just heartrending, officials in space suits inspection radiation dose on children who just stand there in their normal clothes . . .
    Aphrodite Macbain: perhaps a warning for those who haethem
    Pema Pera: several, Paradise
    Aphrodite Macbain: So far 1 and 3 are afected. # 3 has plutonium
    Pema Pera: one exploded yesterday morning, a second one just half an hour ago
    Auguste Wolfhunter: exploded?
    Calvino Rabeni: Does explosion mean internal, or releasing into the environment?
    Pema Pera: well, the outer container exploded, not the reactor itself
    Aphrodite Macbain: very dangerous b/c of the plutonium
    Pema Pera: but who knows what will happen next
    Archmage Atlantis: It is a warning for humanity, and this cycle of evolution
    Aphrodite Macbain: b/c of the inadequacy of the cooling
    Pema Pera: yes
    Calvino Rabeni: Here's an article http://www.csmonitor.com/World/Global-News/2011/0313/Japan-s-nuclear-crisis-and-Chernobyl-key-differences
    Aphrodite Macbain: tx cal
    Aphrodite Macbain: hmm wonder what the key difference is between this and Cernobyl
    Aphrodite Macbain: Chernobyl
    Calvino Rabeni: Containment design I think
    Archmage Atlantis: Pardon if I chage my image
    Pema Pera: most likely it will be much less of a disaster than Chernobyl, but there are still plenty of uncertainties
    Pema Pera: let's hope for the best . . .
    Lucinda Lavender: yes...
    Calvino Rabeni: quote
    Calvino Rabeni: Robin Grimes, director of the Centre for Nuclear Engineering at Imperial College London, told Reuters that the core of the Japanese reactors may be still intact. "After it's all cooled down, it may well still be possible to simply remove the fuel and dispose of it in a relatively normal procedure," said Mr. Grimes. "What's clear, because of the incidental radiation being released at the moment, which is significant but not overwhelming, is that the structure of the core is probably still intact. So it's not as bad as Three Mile Island."
    Aphrodite Macbain: Yes C. spread throughout Europe
    Auguste Wolfhunter: Chernobyl had ni safety devices; none were thought necessary, as UT wasn't a capitalist enterprise opposed to the interest if the people.
    Pema Pera: "may well still be possible to" is not fully reassuring though . . . .
    Calvino Rabeni: true
    Archmage Atlantis: I lived 15 miles from 3 mile island
    Pema Pera: clearly the industry has failed -- from the very fact that duriing a crisis no clear measurements are possible, and everyone has to guess what is going on
    Auguste Wolfhunter: Well, There can't be full reassurence; we're talking life here, and life is uncertain.
    Pema Pera: you were there, Arch, in 1979?
    Archmage Atlantis: I am old
    Archmage Atlantis: sorry
    Aphrodite Macbain: not that old
    Aphrodite Macbain: :-)
    Calvino Rabeni: not so old
    Auguste Wolfhunter: You don't look old. Did the radiation mutated you to immortality?
    Aphrodite Macbain: when I think of the recent disasters- Haiti, the oil leak and now this ..
    Archmage Atlantis: Ummm, perhaps bryn athyn did
    Auguste Wolfhunter: I see no purpose in staying here.
    Aphrodite Macbain: all catostrophic
    Lucinda Lavender: Luci heard that the earth is sping a little faster since this last earthquake...sounds very interesting
    Aphrodite Macbain: I think I'l poof.I'm getting depressed!
    Lucinda Lavender: spinning
    Paradise Tennant: good nite aph
    Aphrodite Macbain: Bye
    Aphrodite Macbain: Bye! all. Think "party"
    Lucinda Lavender: good night Aph
    Bleu Oleander: nite Aph
    Archmage Atlantis: We live, Aph
    Pema Pera: good night, Aphrodite
    iwandertoo Resident: waves
    Archmage Atlantis: We owe
    Paradise Tennant: would you like to do a meditation pema
    Pema Pera: events like this help to give us a perspective on history
    Pema Pera: we read about many terrible events, but we don't get a clear sense of it just by words
    Archmage Atlantis: Pls, good idea Paradise
    Bleu Oleander: bye all ... take care
    Paradise Tennant: often find focusing on the positive in any situation is the first step
    Pema Pera: living through it, even remotely, through pictures, gives a very different idea.
    Calvino Rabeni: Goodbye, thanks everyone who's leaving
    iwandertoo Resident: waves
    Pema Pera: Paradise, sure a meditation is fine
    Paradise Tennant: good nite :)) bleu
    Pema Pera: do you have a suggestion?
    Calvino Rabeni: That sounds great Paradise

    Paradise Tennant: just maybe trying to send strength to those who are facing this ..
    Paradise Tennant: the men in the nuclear plants who are fighting to avoid castastrophe .
    Archmage Atlantis: Agree. Pema
    Paradise Tennant: mothers and dads trying to take care of their kids in this ..
    Lucinda Lavender: nodding
    Paradise Tennant: I would just start with that visualization .. one of strength ..
    Paradise Tennant: cal would you like to gong :)
    Archmage Atlantis: I call on Siddhartha, Jesus, Rabbi Hillel, Bertrand, Descartes,
    Calvino Rabeni: How long a meditation would we like?
    Calvino Rabeni: I will gong

    Calvino Rabeni exhales
    Paradise Tennant: lucinda did you hear if eliza's cat came down :) shamu ?
    Calvino Rabeni: Mitzi M. has sent her regards
    Paradise Tennant: smiles a big smile at Mitzi and sends back fondest regards too :)
    Lucinda Lavender: ah...he was not in the tree this morning and the food was gone too:)
    Calvino Rabeni: :)
    Paradise Tennant: :))
    Lucinda Lavender: HI from Luci/Cinda to:)
    Lucinda Lavender: my cat just tried to sniff near a candle;(
    Paradise Tennant: lol
    Calvino Rabeni: there comes a time in every cat's life
    Paradise Tennant: that can burn one's whiskers !
    Lucinda Lavender: yes:)
    Lucinda Lavender: was wondering what to think about next...
    Paradise Tennant: something light I think
    Calvino Rabeni: You had some idea earlier with words, I remember
    Lucinda Lavender: well a dictionary game ...each person randomly looks up a work to use my a magician...as a kind of tool...
    Lucinda Lavender: word
    Paradise Tennant: ooooooo I love that game !
    Lucinda Lavender: by
    Paradise Tennant: smiling big here and running to get her dictionary
    Lucinda Lavender: I came up with Linear Logic
    Calvino Rabeni: that sounds good
    Calvino Rabeni: Does it rely on secrecy?
    Lucinda Lavender: I say not for us...now...
    Paradise Tennant: well If I recall have to find a word that noone knows and who ever's explanation comes up with the most votes wins :)
    Lucinda Lavender: brb must get the book again
    Calvino Rabeni: (waiting for instructions)
    Lucinda Lavender: yours sounds fun too Paradise
    Paradise Tennant: smiles and waits for instruction :)
    Lucinda Lavender: have you book Cal?
    Calvino Rabeni: is secrecy needed for the game?
    Lucinda Lavender: fine either way for me...
    Calvino Rabeni: I can use some other book besides a dictionary I suppose

    Paradise Tennant: how are we playing it . what are the rules
    Lucinda Lavender: my original idea was to look up a word and we all bring one of our own...and see if it could be a magicians tool
    Lucinda Lavender: just for the fun and exploration of it
    Paradise Tennant: it could be a magician's tool ...??
    Lucinda Lavender: just to see how a word can be a pathway for knowlege
    Lucinda Lavender: yes
    Calvino Rabeni: Nice idea
    Paradise Tennant: so linear logic could create magic by ...
    Lucinda Lavender: keeping one on track in time of difficulty
    Lucinda Lavender: perhaps assisting those scientists in a challenging time
    Lucinda Lavender: I was looking in a book called the Dictionary of Wordplay
    Calvino Rabeni: Mine was too easy .. my finger fell on the word Play
    Paradise Tennant: play ? create magic with flow .. with fun ?
    Calvino Rabeni: And it came in a sentence that already had the "magic" defined ... "If we were truly allowed the free [play] of our imagination, we would change the earth"
    Lucinda Lavender: yes
    Paradise Tennant: like that sentence
    Lucinda Lavender: phone...sry
    Lucinda Lavender: back
    Calvino Rabeni: So I did it again for a more challenging word, and that time I got "Home"
    Lucinda Lavender: ah...nice
    Lucinda Lavender: play can be home

    “Home is the place where, when you have to go there,
    They have to take you in.”

    “I should have called it
    Something you somehow haven’t to deserve.”

    Calvino Rabeni: I think Robert Frost had a clue here
    Lucinda Lavender: lovely
    Paradise Tennant: ok then if I may I choose cinnabar .... :) the principal ore of mercury .. brillant red ! vermillion
    Lucinda Lavender: :)
    Paradise Tennant: now I have to make up a sentence that uses it in a magical way
    Paradise Tennant: smiles robert has a way with words :)
    Lucinda Lavender: sounds good...
    Paradise Tennant: love that definition of home
    Paradise Tennant: everyone should have one .. a place they belong ..
    Lucinda Lavender: yes!
    Lucinda Lavender: a place one can be
    Calvino Rabeni: And I just happen to have some vermillion colored objects near to hand
    Paradise Tennant: undeserving but welcome ;)
    Paradise Tennant: smiles
    Lucinda Lavender: giggling here...
    Lucinda Lavender: thinking..now a new game?
    Paradise Tennant: lol
    Lucinda Lavender: like you suggested Para?
    Paradise Tennant: nope just trying to work up a sentence with cinnabar lol
    Lucinda Lavender: oh good!
    Lucinda Lavender: carry on..
    Lucinda Lavender: working on one too....
    Paradise Tennant: lol
    Paradise Tennant: easier said then done
    Paradise Tennant: hmmm
    Paradise Tennant:

    Still and quiet
    focused intently on red
    my heart slows
    I feel each beat
    a pattern in cinnabar

    Calvino Rabeni: A toast:

    May your essence be as at home in a field of cinnabar
    as in the deep blue sea

    Paradise Tennant: smiles at cal :)
    Paradise Tennant: raises her mug of tea .. and to you two :) may your essences alway be at home :0
    Lucinda Lavender:

    It was in this home, where linear logic guides so effortlessly
    that playfulness in the hue vermillion as cinnabar
    came to glow as an ember in the dark.


    Paradise Tennant: smiling I like this game
    Lucinda Lavender: sort of like making three small poems:)
    Paradise Tennant: you managed all three ;)
    Lucinda Lavender: nods
    Paradise Tennant: shall we do another round :)
    Lucinda Lavender: I send the sparks across...
    Paradise Tennant: smiles
    Paradise Tennant: see them flash
    Lucinda Lavender: sure could try...
    Lucinda Lavender: what do you think Cal
    Lucinda Lavender: I seem to have a funny word here..."ooglification"
    Calvino Rabeni: Yes I was thinking the same
    Paradise Tennant: lol
    Paradise Tennant: hmm okies
    Paradise Tennant: I will go with axiom :)
    Paradise Tennant: truth that needs no proof :)
    Lucinda Lavender: this word is used for when you substitute oo vowel to convert a nonslang word to a slang word
    Lucinda Lavender: skedaddle to skedoodle
    Paradise Tennant: piddling to poodling :)
    Paradise Tennant: smiles
    Paradise Tennant: love the word poodling ..
    Calvino Rabeni: daddyo to doodyo
    Calvino Rabeni: I have the word "loomergoomick"
    Calvino Rabeni: which I have no idea what it means
    Paradise Tennant: slol
    Paradise Tennant: lol
    Lucinda Lavender: giggling
    Lucinda Lavender: limergimmick means...a poem that alters the rhyme of tradional limmerick
    Lucinda Lavender: luci feels she has taken us down a very unusual path...
    Paradise Tennant:

    bedazzled me to bedoodledum
    with a skip and hop I was lomergoomickum

    Paradise Tennant::))) lol

    Lucinda Lavender: wonderful!
    Lucinda Lavender: feel I may not be able to ooglifcate adaquately
    Paradise Tennant: lol
    Paradise Tennant: I love silly
    Paradise Tennant: smiling
    Lucinda Lavender: phew
    Paradise Tennant: well my friends the clock has chimed the witching hour here
    Paradise Tennant: the dog is looking a me with one shorn eyebrow raised ?
    Lucinda Lavender: sleep is a good idea...is there still snow?
    Paradise Tennant: thank you for the company and your enticing words
    Lucinda Lavender: happy to share:)
    Paradise Tennant: no we have spring in the air the snow has vanished pretty much
    Lucinda Lavender: nice
    Paradise Tennant: let's play that again soon .. was such fun :)
    Calvino Rabeni: Fly well with your winged shoes
    Lucinda Lavender: nodding
    Calvino Rabeni: The http://www.merriam-webster.com/word-of-the-day/ word of the day was "Hermetic"
    Calvino Rabeni: which is an oxymoron
    Paradise Tennant: lol any you two dream well .. of home's welcome
    Paradise Tennant: smiles
    Lucinda Lavender: bye Para
    Calvino Rabeni: given that it means "airtight" while Hermes was the wing-footed god of the air
    Lucinda Lavender: hmmm
    Lucinda Lavender: interesting
    Paradise Tennant: namaste my friends
    Calvino Rabeni: Goodnight Paradise
    Lucinda Lavender: well I like hermitic...does it put a seal on things?
    Lucinda Lavender: hermetic
    Calvino Rabeni: It means "impervious to outside influence"
    Calvino Rabeni: which as I mentioned is ironic
    Calvino Rabeni: because Hermes = Mercury, the god of flying messages
    Lucinda Lavender: aha
    Calvino Rabeni: if there's any more contradictory definition I don't know what it could be :)
    Lucinda Lavender: :)))
    Lucinda Lavender: well the movie is starting at my house...I guess I better go
    Calvino Rabeni: I was thinkng of "Big Fish" .. have you seen it?
    Lucinda Lavender: hmmm to ooglificate this axiom....I must create a hemetic ...
    Lucinda Lavender: big fishg...no
    Calvino Rabeni: Good night, and thanks for bringing such a word into my vocabulary, Cinda
    Lucinda Lavender: have heard of it
    Lucinda Lavender: happy to play with words...
    Calvino Rabeni: Next time we will make them do just what we want :)
    Lucinda Lavender: thanks fo the conversation
    Calvino Rabeni: Like Alice did
    Lucinda Lavender: :)))
    Lucinda Lavender: sounds fun
    Calvino Rabeni: Bye for now
    Lucinda Lavender: bye for now..
