    Yakuzza Lethecus: i don't even have lunch at work
    Bleu Oleander: hi Yaku, Eden :)
    Eden Haiku: I'm still blissfull from yesterday: having held my one-month great-niece in my arms for the first time :)))

    Sunshine Vayandar: ;))
    Sunshine Vayandar: oh really
    Sunshine Vayandar: and all is ok with baby and mommy?
    Eden Haiku: Now she's about 6 pounds, she quitted the hospital yesterday at noon and she had her first family party at my place last night! We were 10 adoring adults :)
    Bleu Oleander: how nice Eden :)
    Sunshine Vayandar: ohh i miss being close to babies
    Eden Haiku: She is a pro:) We took turns holding her, she looked into our eyes, smiled. They say it's not "real" smiles but hey, we loved it!
    Yakuzza Lethecus: hey eliza
    Bleu Oleander: hi Eliza
    Eliza Madrigal: Hello Hello!
    Sunshine Vayandar: hi Liz ;))
    Eden Haiku: Have memories of her mother as a baby in my arms and of her grand-father as a baby in my arms also :) My brother is a young grand-dad :)

    Sunshine Vayandar: brb one moment
    Bleu Oleander: hi Susan
    Eliza Madrigal: Hi Susan :)
    Eden Haiku: Hello Susan, nice to see you:)
    iwandertoo Resident: :)


    Direct line to Being


    Eliza Madrigal: yes, I gathered... how blissful
    Eliza Madrigal: you are full of baby joy
    Eden Haiku: I am :)
    Eden Haiku: Felt close to Being :)
    Eden Haiku: Played with Being
    Eliza Madrigal: mmmmm
    Eliza Madrigal stops to remember gazing for days into 'new baby' eyes
    Eden Haiku: Don't you have this feeling that babies are closer than most of us most of the time?
    Eden Haiku: Close to Being I mean...
    Eliza Madrigal: some kind of directness, yes
    Eden Haiku: Direct line :)
    Eliza Madrigal: surely no agendas yet :)
    Eden Haiku: hehe
    Eden Haiku: And how are you doing yourself guys?
    Eden Haiku: Would anyone like to suggest a focus for next 90 seconds?
    Eliza Madrigal: hmmm
    Eliza Madrigal: some kind of freshness, openness... direct connection perhaps
    Bleu Oleander: nice
    Eden Haiku: Yes!
    Eliza Madrigal: inspired by your inspiration :)
    Eden Haiku: Let us focus our awareness onto noticing the freshness, the openness, the direct connection as you suggest Eliza :)


    Eden Haiku: Felt the connection with the baby the moment I closed my eyes when the bell rang.
    Eden Haiku: Felt she was a little Buddha sitting in my heart
    Eden Haiku: Connecting me with my Mom in the netherworld with a direct line
    Bleu Oleander: so poetic!
    Eliza Madrigal: beautiful
    Eden Haiku: and also connecting me with each of you, Yaku in Germany, Bleu in Arizona, Eliza in Miami and Susan...I did not know where, but here, at the fountain.
    iwandertoo Resident: cali
    Eliza Madrigal: :)
    Eden Haiku: Ah, sunny Calfornia :) Picturing you at the beach all the time, surfing Susan :))
    Bleu Oleander: funny to see "Bleu in Arizona" .... breaks the immersiveness in some ways :)
    iwandertoo Resident: hehe...northern...but love the sunshine and seaside
    Eden Haiku: I have a geographic imagination :)
    iwandertoo Resident: :)
    Eden Haiku: Funny I never picture Eliza in the waves, wonder why ?
    Eliza Madrigal: Eliza appreciates Miami a lot, sometimes gives her typist fresh perspectives...
    Eliza Madrigal: Both Eliza and her typist are always searching for tree cover :)
    iwandertoo Resident: :)
    Bleu Oleander: :)
    Bleu Oleander: funny how sense of place changes from sl to rl
    Eden Haiku: Ah! The tree under which you wait for your daughter after school?
    Eliza Madrigal: there are times though... dusk on beaches... the sound stays with one for days...
    Eliza Madrigal: and yes :) that one and I seem to be finding others...
    Eliza Madrigal: funny how it happens
    Eden Haiku: Ah, the sea birds...Seagulls sounds...So evocative...
    Eliza Madrigal: like a baby's eyes can open you to all other eyes


    Living food and April snowstorms

    Eden Haiku: Was at this Living Food workshop up in the hills Saturday.
    Bleu Oleander: what's that Eden?
    Eden Haiku: Been told that if you soak nuts during the night, it multiplies the nutrients by 900!
    Eliza Madrigal: all nuts?
    Eden Haiku: It starts a new life in the nuts. Like germinating seeds but with nuts it's invisible.
    Eliza Madrigal: hmm
    Eden Haiku: Mainly about healthy eating Bleu, fresh foods, lightly steamed. Very interesting.
    Eliza Madrigal: the secret life of nuts...
    Eden Haiku: Felt the baby brimming with that kind of pulsing new life!
    Eliza Madrigal: :))
    Eliza Madrigal: brimming, what a wonderful word
    Eden Haiku: Full blown snowstorm on our way back.
    Eliza Madrigal: wow in mid April no less
    Eden Haiku: My brother had it too, driving from his place far up North.
    Bleu Oleander: amazed to think about snow in april
    Eliza Madrigal: Hi Aph :)
    Bleu Oleander: hi Aph
    Eliza Madrigal: Hi Steve :)
    Yakuzza Lethecus: hi aph
    Bleu Oleander: hey steve
    Yakuzza Lethecus: and steve
    iwandertoo Resident: waves
    Eden Haiku: My boyfriend was caught in ice storm coming from another town :) April in Quebec yes :)
    Aphrodite Macbain: sorry Yaku!
    Eden Haiku: hello Aphrodite, good morning early bird :)
    stevenaia Michinaga: hi, just in for a few minutes
    Eden Haiku: Hello Steve, nice to see you. Holiday?
    Aphrodite Macbain: Hello everyone.

    Fruitful chaos

    Eliza Madrigal: makes me think of my oldest daughter, she came into the world wide-open, huge eyes... couldn't get enough stimulation... she was exhausting :) now at 18 well... she seems to be having a time of this again :) All I can do is hold on
    Aphrodite Macbain smiles
    Eliza Madrigal: and :::breathe:::: :D


    Aphrodite Macbain: and enjoy
    stevenaia Michinaga: holiday tonight
    stevenaia Michinaga: minute is up, must be off :)
    Eden Haiku: That's wonderful Eliza :) She must be so lively...
    Bleu Oleander: bye steve ntsy
    iwandertoo Resident: waves
    Eden Haiku: Bye Steve. Take care!
    Eliza Madrigal: steve sighting
    Eden Haiku: Ah Passover starting tonite on the 19th...
    Eliza Madrigal: Hm, well, wonderful isn't the word right now but I believe that underneath, it is a similar time for her :)
    Eliza Madrigal: very alive
    Eden Haiku: What you do not call wonderful now will seem so in a while I'm sure :))
    Eliza Madrigal: :)))
    iwandertoo Resident: ::)
    Eden Haiku: Did she died her hair purple and painted her nails black?
    Eliza Madrigal: oh that would be far easier :)
    Eden Haiku: is feeling very curious....
    Eliza Madrigal: :)) Actually there is something to see... in times of transition, growth, transformation...maybe there is chaos
    Eden Haiku: but understands you want to respect her privacy :)
    Eliza Madrigal: yes... she's very open like me but I like to talk around the edges
    Eliza Madrigal: :)
    Bleu Oleander: chaos can be good time for creativity and exploration
    Eliza Madrigal: yes!
    Eliza Madrigal: exactly, hard to see at first perhaps, or even during
    Eden Haiku: Yes, I agree. Chaos is fruitful.
    Eliza Madrigal: living food
    Eliza Madrigal: :)
    Eden Haiku: hehe
    Eliza Madrigal: thank you for letting me share; that helped already :)
    Bleu Oleander: isn't that why we're here? :))

    Hugging frenzy

    Eliza Madrigal: :)) (((Bleu))))
    Eden Haiku: :))
    Bleu Oleander: (((Eden, Yaku, Eliza, Susan, Aph, Sun)))
    Eden Haiku: Enjoying the big hug from Bleu. Wow!
    Eliza Madrigal: (((Eden Yaku, Bleu, Susan, Aph))))
    Eliza Madrigal: ((sun)) from afar
    Eden Haiku: (((Yaku, Bleu, Eliza, Susan, Aph and Sunshine)))
    Eliza Madrigal: hehe so nice
    Bleu Oleander: yes!! should hug more often :))
    Eliza Madrigal: agreed! direct!
    Aphrodite Macbain: ((((( everyone)))))
    iwandertoo Resident: :)
    Eden Haiku: Might be afk for a little while, unless my brother would like to see my screen. He's downstairs and my boyfriend overheard him saying he's coming to say goodbye. He's leaving later today for a place called Iles de la Madeleine, for some work.
    Aphrodite Macbain: what is it about hugs that is so wonderful?
    Eden Haiku: Yes, even virtual hugs are wonderful...
    Eliza Madrigal: hmmm yes
    Aphrodite Macbain: Right in the middle of the St Lawrence River?
    Eden Haiku: afk

    My older brother who had been visiting my Dad downstairs for the last two days, came up to say goodbyes. I sat with him in the kitchen for about 20 minutes and I got a wonderful big hug as he came in, and another one as he left: he now lives in Newfoundland where people are well known for their warmth and friendliness. Even my Dad gave us rounds of hugs when he came back from there! But with all this RL shows of affection, I missed the hugging fun around the fountain...

    Bleu Oleander: hugs break boundaries
    Yakuzza Lethecus: does everyone have a tool for hugs in sl ?
    Eliza Madrigal nods maybe they go straight for the heart and neverminding anything else

    Note to Storm: group hug script [please?]

    Bleu Oleander: can you hug more than one at a time?
    Eliza Madrigal: I wonder about finding a group hug, hm
    Aphrodite Macbain: group hug!
    Eliza Madrigal: :))
    Aphrodite Macbain thinks that might be complicated
    Aphrodite Macbain: but fun
    Eliza Madrigal: maybe...
    Eliza Madrigal: yes :)
    Bleu Oleander: I'm imagining someone has invented that somewhere in sl
    Aphrodite Macbain: we'd have to line up like a chorus line then bend
    Bleu Oleander: haha
    Eliza Madrigal: :))
    Aphrodite Macbain: joining into a circle, then get tighter and tighter
    Bleu Oleander: we need a good scripter in our group
    Aphrodite Macbain: yes. who is that do you think? Bleu, Sophia, Storm?
    Bleu Oleander: maybe Sun knows how to do that
    Eliza Madrigal: somehow I have a circular dance picture ... like at weddings...
    Eliza Madrigal: hands around shoulders dancing around the fountain
    Bleu Oleander: note to Storm: group hug
    Eliza Madrigal: :))
    Aphrodite Macbain: was it scripted - I guess it had to be Eliza
    Eliza Madrigal: Oh, prob doesn't exist...
    Eliza Madrigal: yet
    Eliza Madrigal: but people are amazing
    Aphrodite Macbain: a new enterprise of PAB's - bringing the community together
    Eliza Madrigal: sunshine may indeed know where to acquire a group hug
    Aphrodite Macbain: through group hugs
    Eliza Madrigal: :)
    Eliza Madrigal: hehe
    Aphrodite Macbain: happens after onigokko

    Aphrodite Macbain: exploding apart then coming together

    Magic of hugging is working!

    Bleu Oleander: yes!
    Aphrodite Macbain: what will work be today?

    Hugging Yakuzza

    As I came back to my keyboard a few minutes later, Yaku was standing alone by the fountain. I thought he was leaving, but scrolling back through the local chat, I realized he might have been waiting for me so I claimed my virtual hug.

    Eden Haiku: Bye Yaku :)
    Yakuzza Lethecus: take care eden
    Eden Haiku: My brother just left. Got real big hugs:)))
    Yakuzza Lethecus: :)
    Eden Haiku: Sorry I missed the conversation. Waving to others through the log!
    Eden Haiku: Can I get a virtual hug Yaku (just scrolling back)
    Yakuzza Lethecus: !hug eden
    Eden Haiku: Again!
    Yakuzza Lethecus: !hug eden
    Eden Haiku: For the picture :))
    Eden Haiku: Thank you! Felt real good Yaku!
    Yakuzza Lethecus: de nada :)
    Eden Haiku: You hugged each other for the remaining of the session it seemed!
    Eden Haiku: I'm lucky you stayed for me :) Tks!
    Yakuzza Lethecus: yes, partly :) [In fact, Yak explained in IM he was experimenting something with camera moves :)]
    Yakuzza Lethecus: you had the better hugs in rl then :)
    Eden Haiku: Oh yes, my brother from Newfoundland gives the biggest hugs!
    Eden Haiku: He's wonderful.
    Eden Haiku: he's the one who isn't a grand-dad yet. :) It was synchronicity that we all met at my place yesterday :)
    Eden Haiku: hug/ Yakuzza
    Yakuzza Lethecus: !hug eden
    Eden Haiku: I said yes :) [Tricky you have to accept the hug: if you are distracted and fail to click the blue notecard, it doesn't work!]
    Eden Haiku: Doesn't work anymore? You can get addicted to these hugs :)
    Yakuzza Lethecus: i don't know when it will time out
    Eden Haiku: ! yakuzza



    We kept talking both in IM and local chat. Yaku shifted to voice as I read the log and he kept experimenting. I asked for more hugs, as pictures are not quite right. This time, Yak shooted a video. It looks a bit strange but it's completely innocent :)

    Eden Haiku: ! hug yakuzza
    Yakuzza Lethecus: !hug
    Yakuzza Lethecus: in one command
    Eden Haiku: !hug Yakuzza
    Eden Haiku: !hug Yakuzza
    Eden Haiku: !hug yakuzza
    Eden Haiku: Got a good pic this time, thank you :)
    Eden Haiku: Scrolling back to read the log. Are you still experimenting?


    Yakuzza Lethecus: !hug eden
    Yakuzza Lethecus: .
    Yakuzza Lethecus: !hug eden
    Eden Haiku: ! hug Yakuzza
    Eden Haiku: Nice :)))
    Eden Haiku: It looked like you were walking...tho
    Eden Haiku: 82
    Eden Haiku: acht twei [was mimicking him..]
    Eden Haiku: That's fine, we are experimenting :)
    Eden Haiku: ach zwei
    Eden Haiku: around is good, less jumpy then camera...
    Eden Haiku: great! will use the link on the log
    Eden Haiku: no problem
    Yakuzza Lethecus: http://de.xfire.com/video/451dfc/
    Eden Haiku: thru dropbox?
    Eden Haiku: LOL the fact that you are jumping looks a bit lubric, but it's nice :)
    Eden Haiku: Not sure if I will post that one :)
    Eden Haiku: But it's good for you to develop this it would be useful for Art of Being!
    Eden Haiku: You could be our official director!
    Eden Haiku: Yes :)))
    Eden Haiku: Sure, I understand. Have a nice dinner!
    Eden Haiku: BFN
