    The Guardian for this meeting was Eliza Madrigal, passing Sunshine the baton for music session following. Comments are by Eliza Madrigal, joined by Xirana, Yakuzza, Riddle, Aphrodite, Zen, SophiaSharon, Alfred, and Nameless Cat. Eventually, we end up like this:

    But before that, we we take many detours on horseback, in cars and buses, on yoshis and pretty ponies, and good ol' fashioned walking. We also have a nice discussion in which we consider commitments, choicing, "stopping even more", dog walking and devotion, and words that only make sense in SL.

    For those wondering whether to read the session I can only quote Shakepeare: "Though this be madness, yet there is method in it."

    [or that's my story anyway]

    Eliza Madrigal: ::::::neigh:::::::::
    Eliza Madrigal: ::::neigh:::::::
    Sunshine Vayandar: yohooooo ;)
    Eliza Madrigal: Hi Xirana :) we're a bit horsey today
    Eliza Madrigal: Hi Riddle :)
    Riddle Sideways: wow, beautiful horses
    Sunshine Vayandar: hi Riddle
    Sunshine Vayandar: hi Xiri
    Eliza Madrigal: Not sure the horse can sit... will have to put him away for now :)

    Riddle Sideways: where are you riding today

    Eliza Madrigal: he may need a rest anyway, as he has been in the desert and on the beaches at Paradise
    Riddle Sideways: Hi Xir
    Sunshine Vayandar: how is everyone
    Riddle Sideways: oh, horses go away
    Eliza Madrigal: AH, Xirana :))
    Sunshine Vayandar: ahh look!
    Riddle Sideways: they appear
    Riddle Sideways: then disappear
    Sunshine Vayandar: ;)
    Eliza Madrigal: galloping in and out of existence
    Sunshine Vayandar: hmm yes
    Eliza Madrigal: like those paper animations
    Sunshine Vayandar: [here Sun made 'waving' animations but they wouldn't show up on wiki]


    Riddle Sideways: oh, another one
    Eliza Madrigal: Very nice to see you all
    Sunshine Vayandar: wow Xiri
    Eliza Madrigal: oooooooohhhhhhhhhh
    Eliza Madrigal: beautiful
    Sunshine Vayandar: yes ;)
    Xirana Oximoxi: Pegasus :)
    Sunshine Vayandar: beautiful ;)
    Sunshine Vayandar: yay thanks!
    Eliza Madrigal: thanks much!
    Eliza Madrigal: Morning Sharon :)
    SophiaSharon Larnia: hi Eliza, Riddle, Sun and Xirana :)
    Sunshine Vayandar: hi Sharon ;)
    Xirana Oximoxi: Hi Sophia:)
    Eliza Madrigal: Is this intrusive? hehe
    Xirana Oximoxi: :)
    SophiaSharon Larnia: wow those are really neat
    Sunshine Vayandar: that was fun ;)
    Eliza Madrigal: uh oh, lost riddle
    SophiaSharon Larnia: oh wow thank you!
    Xirana Oximoxi: yw:)
    Eliza Madrigal: It is quite an exhilarating day in SL so far! :)
    Eliza Madrigal: and they fly??
    SophiaSharon Larnia: giggles
    Eliza Madrigal: hmm
    Xirana Oximoxi: maybe not well:)
    SophiaSharon Larnia: sits down to behave :)
    Eliza Madrigal: hehe
    Xirana Oximoxi: :)
    Eliza Madrigal: not too much I hope
    SophiaSharon Larnia: :D

    Eliza Madrigal: So what shall we consider today?
    Eliza Madrigal: How is everyone doing with their pause practice and suchlike?
    Sunshine Vayandar: still needs lots of practise
    Xirana Oximoxi: hmmm... not doing it :(
    Eliza Madrigal: Is that due to the season of the year, or?
    Xirana Oximoxi: for me it's because I haven't proposed seriously, and also because I don't know exactly how to be aware of pausing every 15 minutes.. I hate clocks
    Eliza Madrigal nods nods
    Eliza Madrigal: so setting a timer doesn't feel natural?

    SophiaSharon Larnia: 9 seconds = about 2-3 breaths

    Sunshine Vayandar: Kodo told me about Thich Nhat Hanh - and his monastery in France ...
    Sunshine Vayandar: he visited there ... and says that they stop every 15 minutes
    Eliza Madrigal: yes Sharon, nice point
    Eliza Madrigal: Do they?
    SophiaSharon Larnia: interesting Sun
    Sunshine Vayandar: yes that is what he said
    Eliza Madrigal: do they have a cue, like a bell?
    Sunshine Vayandar: yes I think there is a bell
    Xirana Oximoxi: yes! I don't think I haven't time to do it.. it's only that if I am concetrate doing something I forget the time
    Sunshine Vayandar: yes Xiri
    Eliza Madrigal: before SL and PaB I used stoplights as a cue
    SophiaSharon Larnia: ha :)
    Eliza Madrigal: because I seemed to be driving a lot
    Sunshine Vayandar: the way I understand it is ... just to have breaks regularly
    Eliza Madrigal: but that doesn't work at home, hehe
    Eliza Madrigal nods Sun
    Xirana Oximoxi: maybe it's better for me, to try to pause every hour 5 minutes:)
    Eliza Madrigal: Pema used to say something like 'poking holes in our routine'

    Sunshine Vayandar: whatever feels natural Xiri ...


    Xirana Oximoxi: wb Riddle:)
    SophiaSharon Larnia: welcome back Riddle :)
    Sunshine Vayandar: I think one has the need to relax sometimes ...from the busy things we do
    Sunshine Vayandar: wb Riddle ;)
    Riddle Sideways: ty, crashed badly
    Eliza Madrigal: :( Riddle, but glad you made it back
    Sunshine Vayandar: oh sorry bell
    Sunshine Vayandar: ;)
    SophiaSharon Larnia: hi Yakuzza
    Sunshine Vayandar: hi Yaku ;)
    Eliza Madrigal: Hi Yaku :)
    Yakuzza Lethecus: hey everyone
    Riddle Sideways: Hi Yak

    Xirana Oximoxi: I agree Sun, I usually stop and go for a walk with doges 4 times a day... and I live in a absolutely quiet place..maybe that's why I feel strange stopping even more:)
    Xirana Oximoxi: hi Yaku:)
    SophiaSharon Larnia: 4 times a day! wow :P
    Eliza Madrigal: I love that phrase.... 'stopping even more'
    Sunshine Vayandar: 4 times a day ;)
    Eliza Madrigal smiles
    Sunshine Vayandar looks at puppy sleeping on my bed ....
    Sunshine Vayandar: he would love that ;)
    SophiaSharon Larnia: i bet those are some healthy dogs :)
    Eliza Madrigal considers that doggies are good practice
    Xirana Oximoxi: yes... morning and afternoon 40 minutes walk... the other two times maybe 15 minutes
    Xirana Oximoxi: yes! dogs are iike my clock :)

    Riddle Sideways: cats are not good practice
    SophiaSharon Larnia: <3
    Sunshine Vayandar: ;)
    Xirana Oximoxi: hehe... no...miauuu :)))
    Eliza Madrigal: definitely not, Riddle... well, or they are good practice only when they wish to be
    Sunshine Vayandar: it's good to have the 90 sec breaks here

    Riddle Sideways: however, cats see things the others (don't, can't or aren't there)
    Eliza Madrigal: heheh
    SophiaSharon Larnia: smiles
    SophiaSharon Larnia: yes, it freaks me out when my cat suddenly swivels its head and I cant see anything there
    Eliza Madrigal: :))
    Sunshine Vayandar: ;)
    Eliza Madrigal: another thing you said, Xirana...
    Eliza Madrigal: Xirana (xirana.oximoxi): for me it's because I haven't proposed seriously, and also because I don't know exactly how to be aware of pausing every 15 minutes.. I hate clocks

    Eliza Madrigal: 'for me it is because I haven't proposed seriously'
    Eliza Madrigal: that's interesting too
    Xirana Oximoxi: yes, that's true...
    Xirana Oximoxi: and I've thought that it can be a good practice to me...I will have to propose it seriously
    Riddle Sideways: sounds like it has to come up in committee
    Eliza Madrigal: :)
    SophiaSharon Larnia: smiles at Xirana
    Xirana Oximoxi: :)
    Sunshine Vayandar: ;)
    Eliza Madrigal: lots of thoughts about this... there are things that I do for a while before I ever commit in any formal way
    Eliza Madrigal: like, consider for a long while... ponder why I would be making a 'decision'
    Eliza Madrigal: like preparing ground for planting
    Eliza Madrigal: and sometimes in the end I (still) don't come any clearer about 'why'
    Sunshine Vayandar: u mean in RL Liz?
    Eliza Madrigal: yes... noticing processes.... I think pausing/meditation was like this
    Sunshine Vayandar: hmm yes

    SophiaSharon Larnia: we make decisions every second
    Eliza Madrigal: yes, astounding
    SophiaSharon Larnia: at some level
    Sunshine Vayandar: true Sharon
    Xirana Oximoxi: Eliza... that's a very good exercise for the body, and also you enjoi seeing the plants grow, and at the end maybe you can eat too and its taste is always better than buying in supermarket:)
    Eliza Madrigal: but making a mindful decision... sometimes seems it can change the experience of the whole world?

    SophiaSharon Larnia: but the momentous ones have a feeling of being locked into them, if not literally, then at least in the sense of being true to your word
    Eliza Madrigal: :)) X
    Eliza Madrigal: yes, Sharon... hmm
    SophiaSharon Larnia: even if the word is *only* to yourself lol
    Eliza Madrigal: definitely!!
    Eliza Madrigal: decisiveness and devotion are coming together for me... hadn't really seen them as similar until recently
    Sunshine Vayandar ponders about Liz's words
    Eliza Madrigal: anyway... maybe rambling... still considering 'stopping even more' too
    Eliza Madrigal: :)))

    Riddle Sideways: the actions happen (or not), but the attitudes of choicing, being ordered, acciedental, of the moment, etc. matter
    Riddle Sideways: how we look at what we are doing


    Eliza Madrigal smiles at *choicing*
    SophiaSharon Larnia: true Riddle! :)
    SophiaSharon Larnia: hi Zen
    Eliza Madrigal: Hi Zen :)
    Yakuzza Lethecus: hey zen
    Eliza Madrigal: sometimes we talk about the pauses as stopping to notice what we're doing

    Riddle Sideways: do we walk the dog out of devotion

    Sunshine Vayandar: hi Zen ;)
    Riddle Sideways: Hi Zen
    Xirana Oximoxi: if I understand 'devotion' as an special attirance to something, then 'decisveness' may be easy
    Zen Arado: Hi all
    Xirana Oximoxi: hi Zen
    Riddle Sideways: we walk the dog anyway, but in/out of what attitude do we see it
    Eliza Madrigal: Hm... yes...
    Eliza Madrigal: would seem so, Xirana.... like, some things become more obvious? Walk the dog for love and/or connection? or just because that's what you do when you have a dog?
    Zen Arado: or because the dog needs it
    Riddle Sideways: we eat the cracker. Is it the scared cracker, the only food we have or because we must
    Xirana Oximoxi: attirence = atraction (sorry, I have looked it up now :)
    Eliza Madrigal: sometimes I imagine that you do it just because you have a dog

    SophiaSharon Larnia: hi Boxy
    Eliza Madrigal: Hi Boxy :)
    Xirana Oximoxi: hi Boxy:)
    Zen Arado: Hi Boxy :)
    Eliza Madrigal: great timing Alfred :)

    Zen Arado: some get dogs so they have to walk

    Eliza Madrigal: it is a commitment that comes with a lot of walks built inside
    Eliza Madrigal: heheh
    Alfred Kelberry: hi :)
    Alfred Kelberry: why is it? :)
    Zen Arado: maye boxy needs a walk
    Alfred Kelberry: wuff!
    Eliza Madrigal smiles
    Sunshine Vayandar: hi Boxy ;)
    SophiaSharon Larnia: aww :)
    Alfred Kelberry: yes, would be nice
    Alfred Kelberry: in fact, i'm going in a bit :)
    SophiaSharon Larnia: yay

    Zen Arado: I can walk from my place to here I just discovered
    Zen Arado: and there is a road !
    Eliza Madrigal: all the way through?
    Sunshine Vayandar: really Zen?
    Alfred Kelberry: mm, new folk dress eliza :)

    SophiaSharon Larnia: thats been my practice lately, non meditation while going to the park a lot :)

    Zen Arado: you have to fly over one place though
    Eliza Madrigal: :) blame the sunshine, Alfred ... isn't it lovely :D

    Sunshine Vayandar: What about walking to Zen's place as part of the music session
    Eliza Madrigal: oooo
    Alfred Kelberry: i prefer to teleport - much faster
    Sunshine Vayandar: ;)
    Eliza Madrigal: playing harp along the way?
    Eliza Madrigal: or flute, like the pied piper?
    Sunshine Vayandar: hmm yes Liz ;)
    SophiaSharon Larnia: thinks of pied pipers :)
    Eliza Madrigal: hehehe
    Zen Arado: I've only done it once
    Zen Arado: might get lost
    Eliza Madrigal: oh even better
    Alfred Kelberry: i like sticks in your hair, eliza :)
    Zen Arado: and someone showed me the way
    Sunshine Vayandar: getting lost sounds fun
    Eliza Madrigal: Thanks Alfred :)

    Eliza Madrigal: aimless wandering
    Zen Arado: am I ruthed today?
    SophiaSharon Larnia: i didnt know you could walk to mugungwa from here
    Sunshine Vayandar: "going nowere slowly"
    Eliza Madrigal: and even more slowly
    Zen Arado: cos we all TP so much
    Sunshine Vayandar: yes Zen - ruthed
    Sunshine Vayandar: hmm
    Eliza Madrigal: Oh, I see you clearly today Zen
    Zen Arado: am I ?
    Riddle Sideways: back, Hi boxy alf
    Eliza Madrigal: the other day all men were ruthed
    Sunshine Vayandar: and Riddle also - in my viewer
    Alfred Kelberry: :)
    SophiaSharon Larnia: i see now
    Eliza Madrigal: yes, Riddle

    Sunshine Vayandar: what causes that to happen?
    Alfred Kelberry: i've updated to v2.6.6 and the font got bigger in the chat window
    Zen Arado: yes noticed that
    Eliza Madrigal: not sure Sun
    Zen Arado: like that
    Alfred Kelberry: ok, not a glitch then :)
    Zen Arado: Phoenix is so small
    Alfred Kelberry: but the rest is the same - not consistent
    Riddle Sideways: I ruthed?
    Zen Arado: but what to do about ruthing?
    Sunshine Vayandar: yes Riddle - in my viewer
    Alfred Kelberry: what about ruthing?
    Eliza Madrigal: yes Riddle, as many have been lately
    Alfred Kelberry: oh
    Riddle Sideways: hmmmm, and why does rebake textures do nothing
    Zen Arado: it's happening to me lately
    Alfred Kelberry: must be new server code
    Alfred Kelberry: riddle, it never does for me
    Riddle Sideways: new viewer code today
    SophiaSharon Larnia: hmm
    Alfred Kelberry: well, ruthing is related to server
    Eliza Madrigal: here we must accept that others may see us quite differently than we see ourselves :)

    Sunshine Vayandar: can it be caused by slower connection?
    Riddle Sideways: should be a command to make rebake work
    Xirana Oximoxi: what does 'ruthed' mean? I find that in dictionnary http://www.thefreedictionary.com/Ruthed
    Sunshine Vayandar: yes Liz
    Sunshine Vayandar: Xiri - it means that in SL - sometimes guys have a female shape when they rez
    Riddle Sideways: does not mean the Ruth of Bible
    Alfred Kelberry: eliza, i've prepared to that several days ago *hint: read my profile* :)
    Zen Arado: it is a default av female shape
    Xirana Oximoxi: :) yes Rid! I suppose so:)

    Eliza Madrigal: James Franco worked ith film teacher friend, to let a bunch of students use footage of him in any way they liked, to tell whatever story they wanted
    Eliza Madrigal: ok Boxy, looking....
    Alfred Kelberry: ruth is a default av in sl, xir
    Eliza Madrigal: cute :)

    Xirana Oximoxi: oh! thanks! SL has some special words just for in world
    Alfred Kelberry: :)
    Alfred Kelberry: xir, such words form in any social group
    Alfred Kelberry: i'm sure you have some :)
    Eliza Madrigal: SL speak
    Xirana Oximoxi: yes, I agree... but one must learn them too:)

    Riddle Sideways: e.g. pab

    Eliza Madrigal: I consider 'math' one of those
    Eliza Madrigal: heheh


    Eliza Madrigal: true, some things we say in pab sound ridiculous other places
    Riddle Sideways: apapb
    SophiaSharon Larnia: haha'
    Eliza Madrigal: :))
    Eliza Madrigal: definitely that one

    Alfred Kelberry: let's name all the sl words we know :)
    Eliza Madrigal: peculiar
    Alfred Kelberry: sl, rl, rez
    Alfred Kelberry: tp
    SophiaSharon Larnia: tp
    Alfred Kelberry: lm
    Riddle Sideways: how do I turn translate english to (english) off?
    SophiaSharon Larnia: lol
    Xirana Oximoxi: fl

    Sunshine Vayandar: ah yes
    Alfred Kelberry: right
    SophiaSharon Larnia: "drop on me"
    Alfred Kelberry: haha
    Sunshine Vayandar: ;p
    Eliza Madrigal: and some things we bring to pab from other places begin to sound squidgy here as well
    Alfred Kelberry: i still don't know what gtsy is
    Eliza Madrigal: 'beliefs'
    SophiaSharon Larnia: good to see you
    Alfred Kelberry: ah
    SophiaSharon Larnia: :)
    Alfred Kelberry: ty
    Alfred Kelberry: :)
    Sunshine Vayandar: ;)
    Xirana Oximoxi: :)
    Eliza Madrigal: it took me forever to figure out Wol's ymmv
    Xirana Oximoxi: ?
    Eliza Madrigal: your mileage may vary
    Alfred Kelberry: rez is from the tron actually
    Xirana Oximoxi: :) ty:)
    Eliza Madrigal: :)

    Alfred Kelberry: "Taken from the movie Tron's term "de-rezz", which roughly means to dissolve in a certain way. "

    Eliza Madrigal: how interesting!
    Xirana Oximoxi: xoxoxo
    Xirana Oximoxi: = hugs and kisses
    Alfred Kelberry: undissolve this box :)
    Zen Arado: xoxox to everyone
    SophiaSharon Larnia: _/!\_
    Alfred Kelberry: :)
    Xirana Oximoxi: :))
    Riddle Sideways: (((((all)))))
    Eliza Madrigal: fwiw((((((((((((((((((((( __________ )))))))))))))))))))
    Eliza Madrigal: heheh
    SophiaSharon Larnia: giggles
    SophiaSharon Larnia: what is fwiw?
    Eliza Madrigal: for what its worth
    Eliza Madrigal: :)
    Alfred Kelberry: :)
    SophiaSharon Larnia: oh! :)
    Alfred Kelberry: but those are not sl related
    Zen Arado: fyi

    Alfred Kelberry: eliza :)
    SophiaSharon Larnia: laughs
    Xirana Oximoxi: hehe
    Alfred Kelberry: yes, indeed
    SophiaSharon Larnia: grief? or is that everywhere?
    SophiaSharon Larnia: i think everywhere
    Eliza Madrigal: yes good question
    Eliza Madrigal: trolling is everywhere
    Alfred Kelberry: :)
    SophiaSharon Larnia: ;p
    Eliza Madrigal: set environment
    Zen Arado: what is trolling?
    Eliza Madrigal: I'm not totally clear Zen, think that has different contexts

    Zen Arado: using someones elses av?
    Eliza Madrigal: but is a kind of griefing
    Eliza Madrigal: usually
    Eliza Madrigal: that would be 'being zen arado'
    Eliza Madrigal: (using someone else's av)
    Eliza Madrigal: :D
    Riddle Sideways: is that a movie?
    Eliza Madrigal: Being John Malcovich

    Alfred Kelberry: oh, a long definition: "a troll is someone who posts inflammatory, extraneous, or off-topic messages in an online community, such as an online discussion forum, chat room, or blog, with the primary intent of provoking readers into an emotional response[2] or of otherwise disrupting normal on-topic discussion."
    Xirana Oximoxi: I use Urban dictionnary for non 'standat' English http://www.urbandictionary.com/defin...?term=trolling
    Alfred Kelberry: thanks wikipedia
    Zen Arado: there is a website for ruthing
    Zen Arado: http://ruthed.com/
    Alfred Kelberry: eliza, awesome movie!
    SophiaSharon Larnia: oh http://cyfishy.com/slexicon.html
    Eliza Madrigal: quite an idea
    Eliza Madrigal: there is an office between floors and they have to crawl through to get into someone's view... but they still have their own mind, seemingly
    Eliza Madrigal: after a while they are spit out on the side of the road
    Eliza Madrigal: heheh
    Alfred Kelberry: zen, looks like a troll site :)
    Zen Arado: ah yes
    Zen Arado: nothing to do with ruthing..just ugly truths

    Eliza Madrigal: OK... best way I know of dissolving (boundaries) is music.....
    Sunshine Vayandar smiles
    Eliza Madrigal: :)
    Alfred Kelberry: sophia, ah nice :)
    Eliza Madrigal: I sounded like a news anchor just then, huh?
    Eliza Madrigal: Over to Sun...
    Eliza Madrigal: hehehe

    Sunshine Vayandar: after the break - as part of the music session - we are going for a hike ...

    Alfred Kelberry: "Neko: An otherwise human-shaped avatar wearing cat ears and a tail." *looks at sophia* :)
