    The Guardian for this meeting was Calvino Rabeni. The comments are by Calvino Rabeni.

    Rhiannon Dragoone: Hi Cal!
    Rhiannon Dragoone: How are You doing?
    Calvino Rabeni: Good evening, Rhia !
    Calvino Rabeni: Doing well, enjoying the feeling of after a good nature hike
    Calvino Rabeni: And getting back to where smartphones work better than paperweights
    Calvino Rabeni: Although I have used it for that purpose
    Calvino Rabeni: How about yourself ?
    Rhiannon Dragoone: oh, yeah. Always good. I'm taking a break from writing. But it's one of those things that when the spirit moves you, you move. So I may log abruptly.
    Calvino Rabeni: if something that might become a word or sentence comes around, you may abruptly set off in pursuit .. I understand
    Rhiannon Dragoone: Yeah. Just did, as a matter of fact. Not son's I had to light, but That's why I was slow in responding to you.
    Calvino Rabeni wonders what Rhia is writing

    Rhiannon Dragoone: It's a story set against a background that I've used UN many of my stories.
    Rhiannon Dragoone: Right now the queen of New Fairy is tracking its Sheriff, as his wife suspects him of infidelity.
    Calvino Rabeni: The interesting thing to me, is what it is like to create a fictional alternative world that is the setting for a variety of coherent stories. How it develops over time.
    Calvino Rabeni: Good evening, Cinda !
    Lucinda Lavender: good evening cal and Rhi...
    Lucinda Lavender: Yoga starts later during summer so It finishes at 7:30...

    Lucinda Lavender: That is pretty great say the folk who live where you do not see deer regularly...or ever. Except when you see a peacock or a coyote walkdown it.
    Calvino Rabeni: Do you have racoon squabbles in your back yard sometimes? It's pretty woodsy
    Lucinda Lavender: down the street actually is what I meant to say.
    Lucinda Lavender: have not seen them of late.

    Lucinda Lavender: listens...tho:)
    Lucinda Lavender: smiling
    Lucinda Lavender: the dreams are rich tonight
    Paradise Tennant: smiles was standing in a kitchen not my kitchen a different kitchen in my pjs making coffee see a helicopter crash into a building burst into flames just outside
    Calvino Rabeni: They are ... :) unfortunately I have to go to dinner about now at a friend's house, but glad to see you all

    Calvino Rabeni: Thanks .. :)
    Calvino Rabeni: Take care, be well.. Bye :)
    stevenaia Michinaga: bye Cal
    Paradise Tennant: run outside with them both in my hands
    Paradise Tennant: find the helicopter upside down on my lawn
    Paradise Tennant: a man and his sone crawling out but no flames

    Paradise Tennant: he is annoyed with me rushing up as though there is trouble acts like it is normal to land a helicopter upside down I look back and instead of a lawn and porch I ran off of it looks like I came down a very steep rocky face of a cliff
    Paradise Tennant: I look down at myself and I am scratch and scraped as though I tumbled the whole way
    Paradise Tennant: he and his 9 year old son .. nod and walk off
    Paradise Tennant: I stand there holding my fire extinguisher and feel perplexed
    Paradise Tennant: like the world is shifting around me and I cannot keep it straight :)
    Lucinda Lavender: 9 is the principle of Awareness. The Pardoxical Realms and the pancreas...the color yellow to peridot...
    stevenaia Michinaga: 9?
    Lucinda Lavender: Steve I have a way of looking at the dreams and when certain things show up in the dream I can see where it shows up in a grand scheme of things:)
    stevenaia Michinaga: :)
    Lucinda Lavender: I was looking at the number 9 since it showed up
    Lucinda Lavender: number
    Paradise Tennant: yes strange how I knew he was nine years old looking at him
    stevenaia Michinaga: I missed that
    stevenaia Michinaga: thanks
    Lucinda Lavender: interesting too that you were perplexed and 9 is about Paradoxical realms
    Lucinda Lavender: Luci looks into a book:)
    Paradise Tennant: well I ran out barefoot over grass toward a flame engulfed helicopter but when i go there no flames .. and it looks like a slid down a 200 foot cliff
    Lucinda Lavender: Paradise there are 3of planets in Taurus an earth sign today...Mercury at 10.. Venus at 8 and Mars at 8... mars
    Lucinda Lavender: Mercury the mental body, Venus the emotional body, and Mars the physical body

    Lucinda Lavender: sliding down a cliff sounds related
    Lucinda Lavender: to the earth
    Lucinda Lavender: where the three bodies...each personal are conjunct
    Lucinda Lavender: this I realize is perhaps esoteric sounding...
    Lucinda Lavender: but it happens that certain dream themes come about...and when they seem unexpected and intense I look to the personal planets...
    Lucinda Lavender: please feel free to pass right by my noticings:)
    Paradise Tennant: smiles :)
    Paradise Tennant: thank you
    Malinson Bloobury: hi all
    Paradise Tennant: hello malinson ..sorry I did not see you come in :)
    Malinson Bloobury: hi
    Lucinda Lavender: smetimes one might dream in to someone elses world...
    Paradise Tennant: a shared dream
    stevenaia Michinaga: hmmm,

    Lucinda Lavender: When there is a hollywood feel then sometimes it could apply to a broad expanse of the culture
    stevenaia Michinaga: like Arnold's affair in the news
    Lucinda Lavender: oh right!
    Lucinda Lavender: the theme of bridging might be present too...
    Lucinda Lavender: you could remove the word need...and just say they can see...:)
    Paradise Tennant: amazing how easy and confortable it can feel in dreams to be in situations which in rl would cause consternation
    stevenaia Michinaga: :)
    stevenaia Michinaga: perhaps because there are few outside influences in dreams
    Lucinda Lavender: or like there is no obstacle ...yes
    Lucinda Lavender: lots of potential available
    stevenaia Michinaga: Bed time for me
    stevenaia Michinaga: thanks lucinda
