    The Guardian for this meeting was Calvino Rabeni. The comments are by Calvino Rabeni.
    We find a memory emerging from deep time and wear a number of different hats.  In fact, we find ourselves surrounded by them, all forms and colors and styles.


    Calvino Rabeni: Hello Katherine :)
    Calvino Rabeni: There's also an information box over near the circle that gives a note card
    Calvino Rabeni: Good evening, Arch !
    Archmage Atlantis: What's shaking *g*
    Calvino Rabeni: Hmm, the earth hasn't moved around here
    Calvino Rabeni: Katherine, we advise new vistors, the chat sessions here are posted on our wiki at http://wiki.playasbeing.org/
    Archmage Atlantis: Lucky you......it seems to be moving tecxtnic plates most palxces :)
    Katherine Merchiston: Thank you, Calvino.
    Calvino Rabeni: Are you comfortable with that - if not, I can edit out your chat
    Katherine Merchiston: yes, I'm fine with that.
    Calvino Rabeni: Thanks :)
    Archmage Atlantis: Bon jour, Katherine
    Katherine Merchiston: Bon jour, Arch
    Calvino Rabeni: Lucinda .. hi, for some reason it feels like a long time
    Archmage Atlantis: Dang Lucinda....all that glitz.....thought you were Stenenaia
    Lucinda Lavender: yes...that is interesting...must be a full time
    Lucinda Lavender: we shop in the same place:)
    Lucinda Lavender: HI everyone...
    Archmage Atlantis: okie dokie "grin"
    Calvino Rabeni: How's the yoga class going?
    Lucinda Lavender: ah...yoga was cancelled today...perhaps the visiting buddhist monk or such has changed Yoon's scedule
    Archmage Atlantis: Well, I've learned how to wear a hat and shuffle
    Lucinda Lavender: schedule
    Archmage Atlantis: Oops, yoga, not yogi
    Lucinda Lavender: Someone special will come to speak
    Archmage Atlantis: bear with me
    Lucinda Lavender: will do Arch
    Calvino Rabeni: You've got a very broad area of wisdom, Arch
    Calvino Rabeni: in other words, sometimes a wise acre
    Calvino Rabeni: (sorry bear with me on that too:) )
    Archmage Atlantis: conceed
    Archmage Atlantis: ftm
    Calvino Rabeni: I get berra and the bear mixed up
    Lucinda Lavender: I went to a different yoga place yesterday with a friend and the teacher was very playful and made jokes and sang to us...very fun...
    Lucinda Lavender: plus her hair was a little pink:)
    Calvino Rabeni: Hmm, that sounds .. maybe I'd like to see that :)
    Archmage Atlantis: was she playing as a being, Luce?
    Lucinda Lavender: yep:)
    Archmage Atlantis: :)
    Archmage Atlantis: I feel lighthearted tonight
    Archmage Atlantis: It's nice
    Archmage Atlantis: Not used to it
    Lucinda Lavender: nice was the word I was going to say
    Lucinda Lavender: for you does sunlight make a difference?
    Calvino Rabeni: well I went to a hot-yoga studio .. it was a little much .. at first I couldn't hear words spoken at such a rapid rate, almost like an auctioneer inside a sauna
    Lucinda Lavender: wow Cal...
    Calvino Rabeni: Yes Cinda, it makes it harder to sleep in .. because of the rays coming in the window in the morning

    Calvino Rabeni: but, I can change my schedule a bit and go to be earlier
    Archmage Atlantis: Yes, for me it does......but I feel as if I have cast away decades of anger against the universe
    Calvino Rabeni: well actually, I like that there's so many different styles of yoga and teacher now,
    Lucinda Lavender: true...and the neighbors rooster makes himself known.
    Lucinda Lavender: wow Arch...
    Archmage Atlantis: Screen went black, brb
    Lucinda Lavender: Cal do you know much about Ginko Trees
    Calvino Rabeni: WB Arch
    Lucinda Lavender: hi again Arch:)
    Calvino Rabeni: No Cinda, only that they are a very old species and have interesting shaped leaves
    Lucinda Lavender: arch I am happy for you.
    Calvino Rabeni: I have a couple on an art collage
    Calvino Rabeni: Yes that was a very striking statement
    Lucinda Lavender: there was a dream with the ginko in it...this tree was growing in such a way as to interfere with a grid in Japan...wo a group entity was working on what to do in the dream this was...
    Lucinda Lavender: so the plural entity it was called was working on deciding what to do...
    Archmage Atlantis: Lucy, dream circle?
    Lucinda Lavender: chopping it up in squares seemed to block and taking or mostly out would stop a life force...yes Arch
    Lucinda Lavender: lessen the life force by taking too much
    Archmage Atlantis: In my dreams...we absorb it
    Lucinda Lavender: they did not want to do that in case it came bake too powerfully
    Calvino Rabeni: Hi Paradise !
    Archmage Atlantis: That is fear
    Lucinda Lavender: Hi Para
    Lucinda Lavender: Happy to see you...
    Paradise Tennant: hiya lucinda , arch ..cal gtsy :)
    Archmage Atlantis: How must a mother feel with a new life growing inside.......that is what it seems to me
    Archmage Atlantis: Hi, Paradise
    Lucinda Lavender: trimming trees does enourage growth
    Lucinda Lavender: discussing the image in a dream..
    Lucinda Lavender: not mine
    Lucinda Lavender: Katherine left?
    Calvino Rabeni: Yes it looks that way, perhaps she was here for a light taste
    Lucinda Lavender: bye Katherine...
    Archmage Atlantis: An intensity for a first time
    Calvino Rabeni: True
    Paradise Tennant: smiles are we talking of dreams :)
    Lucinda Lavender: just a bit yes
    Archmage Atlantis: es, I believe we are Para
    Lucinda Lavender: wondered what people know about Ginko Trees
    Archmage Atlantis: Dreams of the world as it is, how it might be
    Lucinda Lavender: well it was a dream from January...set in Japan.
    Archmage Atlantis: Gingko trees are anceient
    Paradise Tennant: http://www.xs4all.nl/~kwanten/thetree.htm
    Calvino Rabeni: The ginko is a very unusual tree, regarded as a living fossil, the only remaining member of an ancient species
    Archmage Atlantis: They were here before many conifers
    Calvino Rabeni: they don't flower, which is unusual for trees
    Calvino Rabeni: yes they are ancient
    Archmage Atlantis: Yes, I know

    Paradise Tennant: interesting that something that is a living fossil ..is good for memory .. there is elegance there
    Archmage Atlantis: They are attractive trees also
    Archmage Atlantis: And the diseases have evolved past them, so they are relatively without plant disease
    Lucinda Lavender: thanks for this info...
    Calvino Rabeni: Here's a fossil leaf image http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/c/c5/Ginkgo_biloba_MacAbee_BC.jpg
    Calvino Rabeni: And a living one http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/f/f5/Ginkgo_Biloba_Leaves_-_Black_Background.jpg/400px-Ginkgo_Biloba_Leaves_-_Black_Background.jpg
    Lucinda Lavender: beautiful
    Archmage Atlantis: These are the 2 images that seem closest to how I see them
    Archmage Atlantis: ginkgo_tree1400.jpg
    Archmage Atlantis: http://www.google.com/imgres?imgurl=http:...
    Calvino Rabeni: Chinese people eat it in some recipes ... it is marketed as a memory enhancer, but the results disputed ... the leaves have something in them similar to poison ivy, but in very low concentration
    Calvino Rabeni: I imagine the wind plays the leaves in an interesting way
    Archmage Atlantis: I've only seen 2 living ones.....when I was in the NE US
    Paradise Tennant: did you dream of ginko trees Luci ?
    Lucinda Lavender: hmmm interesting...no it was in someone elses dream...but it seemed to be some sort of problem for a grid...and that made me wonder more about Ginko as a tree...
    Lucinda Lavender: dreams lately anyone?
    Archmage Atlantis: Camellias, Magnolias, Rhododendron, Azaleas......they mark the hills of China.....only one or two species live here in the East US
    Calvino Rabeni is drinking an infusion of camelia
    Paradise Tennant: I dreamt of standing in a hat store .. surrounded by hats .. all different kinds... just the edge of dream really .. wandering around looking at hats :)
    Paradise Tennant: is drinking echinea tea :)
    Lucinda Lavender: but I was just learning from a vieo on Appachia that when there was once a Pangea..the plants were quite diverse and then as the plates moved ...some show up in Appaachia and some China...
    Archmage Atlantis: Funny Cal, Thea sinesis is Camellia sinesis
    Calvino Rabeni: I thought the interesting elements were the grid and the group entity, and the symbol of memory
    Lucinda Lavender: ah! yes!
    Lucinda Lavender: yes a plural entity was in the dream...interesing idea
    Calvino Rabeni: so perhaps the group entity is receiving some ancient memory trace, which threatens the current technology grid, unless it is slowly integrated
    Archmage Atlantis: Once Carolina parakeets were all over the east US.......then ladies wanted them for hats
    Lucinda Lavender: :)
    Archmage Atlantis: Now they are extinct
    Lucinda Lavender: What do you remember about the Hats Paradise?
    Paradise Tennant: hmmm just absorbing the colours .. some were flowered .. some straw .. all manner of hats .. smiles
    Archmage Atlantis: Men will do all they can to obtain things that please ladies
    Paradise Tennant: so seldom remember dreams .. it was .. nice just to wake up with any kind of picture ..
