    Bertram Jacobus: hello xirana :-)
    Xirana Oximoxi: I was reading emails and I've seen nobody has claimed this log ... or maybe you did?
    Bertram Jacobus: no. i didn´t - why do you ask ? :-)
    Xirana Oximoxi: because if you want to take care of it It's ok for me... I have claimed:))
    Xirana Oximoxi: second time I do, I think
    Xirana Oximoxi: I think it's the time usually Arch was doing
    Bertram Jacobus: nooo - i´m happy when you do it, help with it ! very kind of you ! :-)
    Bertram Jacobus: we can see it on the wiki site whose slot it is - you know where ?
    Xirana Oximoxi: he always said he was alone... I'm glad you've come :))
    Bertram Jacobus: hehe. i´m happy to see you too :-)
    Xirana Oximoxi: ty:)
    Bertram Jacobus: ty2 :-)
    Xirana Oximoxi: it's a strange sensation to be here alone... it's like the 9 seconds but for 30 minutes:)
    Bertram Jacobus: yeah !
    Bertram Jacobus: can be a nice experience i find
    Bertram Jacobus: like meditation
    Xirana Oximoxi: yes... I agree:)

    Bertram Jacobus: good ... :-9

    Bertram Jacobus: bah : the ugly nine again ;o)
    Xirana Oximoxi: lol..I also do this mistake when typing
    Xirana Oximoxi: I hope it does not mean anything strange... 
    Bertram Jacobus: hehe. so many mistakes ... i do ... ;-)
    Xirana Oximoxi: me too, I will have to see if this emoticon means something
    Bertram Jacobus: no no no - i wouldn´t appreciate it, if it would mean something strange and so - i don´t think so ... ;o)
    Xirana Oximoxi: :)
    Xirana Oximoxi: there are a lot of emoticons I don't know... I only use the more common ones, but it can be like a complet language too
    Xirana Oximoxi: well... maybe not complet:)
    Bertram Jacobus: agree :-)
    Xirana Oximoxi: what I have a lot of difficulties is to understand English when people 'eat' letters...
    Bertram Jacobus: hehe - really !? - okayyyy
    Bertram Jacobus: so i will make a few moooore - okay ? ;-)
    Xirana Oximoxi: for exemple cu
    Xirana Oximoxi: h r u?
    Xirana Oximoxi: me2
    Bertram Jacobus: ah ! - but that are abbreviations, chat abbreviations ... and there are no limits of learning such and whatever ...
    Xirana Oximoxi: :)
    Xirana Oximoxi: it's a way to write short messages on chat phones... in Spanish they also do, but then is easier to guess for me:)

    Xirana Oximoxi: do you usually practice meditation, if I may ask?
    Bertram Jacobus: i c *lol* (means : i see) ... ;-)
    Xirana Oximoxi: ahhh thanks ..ty:)
    Bertram Jacobus: yes i do. but not regulary enough , sadly - bad bert ! ...
    Xirana Oximoxi: lol... not 'bad' bert:)
    Bertram Jacobus: but he (me) could be better ! - do you also - meditate ?
    Bertram Jacobus: hey eggsalad
    Xirana Oximoxi: hello eggsalad
    eggsalad Ormstein: hi bert
    Xirana Oximoxi: have you been here before?
    eggsalad Ormstein: well, in fact I have. Many many times
    Xirana Oximoxi: ahhh ok... then no need to explain
    Xirana Oximoxi: sorry, I think we haven't met before:)
    Bertram Jacobus: hi rhia
    eggsalad Ormstein: thank you for considering it, though
    eggsalad Ormstein: rhia! darling!
    Xirana Oximoxi: hi Rhia:)
    Rhiannon Dragoone: Hi egg; hi Bertram, hi Xirana
    Rhiannon Dragoone: Xirana, you're a cloud
    Xirana Oximoxi: oh, really? I see myself well
    Xirana Oximoxi: moment, I try to change clothes, sometimes it works
    Rhiannon Dragoone: That worked.
    Xirana Oximoxi: ok:)
    Rhiannon Dragoone: Sometimes, I hae to change my bald pate; that works
    Bertram Jacobus: i saw you correctly all the time xirana ...
    Rhiannon Dragoone: Sounds like love, Bert
    Xirana Oximoxi: yes... it may be also to let sl download, it goes slowly
    Bertram Jacobus: interesting - why is that, why do you think so rhia ? ah - may be a joke ... ;-)
    Rhiannon Dragoone: heh, I was just thinking how nice it was to be around people who apprecaite it when I'm joking.
    Rhiannon Dragoone sighs gustily
    Xirana Oximoxi: in English it's not correct to say 'hear', isn't it?..it may be 'listen in this case?
    Bertram Jacobus: and i´m not sure in such words questions as well xirana, sry ... ;-)
    Xirana Oximoxi: do you have a topic to talk about? something you would like to discuss?
    Bertram Jacobus: not me. i mostly appreciate what comes up, even when it´s silence
    Xirana Oximoxi: usually when I come and we ask about a topic it never comes... and when we let conversation flow spontanously it is easy to find :))
    Bertram Jacobus: yes ! :-)
    Bertram Jacobus: but / and we were talking about meditation : does anybody do that here in this circle ? i answered already that i do, but not regulary enough ...
    Xirana Oximoxi: I don't do in any way... but I go walking regularly with my dogs... and somehow it can be a way to meditate too
    Rhiannon Dragoone: I do katas, which are a form of moving meditation

    Bertram Jacobus: ah - that is a thing which one can hear so often : that so many things would be (like) meditation. but in a way i would disagree : meditation has also a very special own character ... although there are many forms of it
    Xirana Oximoxi: also, I'm learning a lot of things since I come here...for exemple, 'katas' I think it's the first time I hear about it

    Bertram Jacobus: i don´t know what katas is either but may be something with sword and art of fighting ?

    Xirana Oximoxi: yes Bert... you're right, meditation must be something you must be aware of doing... and when I go walking I'm not

    Rhiannon Dragoone: Bert, a kata is a kind of encyclopaedia of movements, which wire in self defense motions, but when you do them, you are in extended awareness, or Hakulau, and focused on the moment.
    Rhiannon Dragoone: In fact I didn't really understand how you could livve in the moment and move through time until I started doing them

    Bertram Jacobus: yes. and it´s going TOTALLY inside of us , without doing anthing (else) ...
    Rhiannon Dragoone: Well, that's different ,as in a kata, you hae to develop your proprioceptics
    Bertram Jacobus: okay. thanx for the explanation rhia !
    Rhiannon Dragoone: ur welcome, Bert
    Bertram Jacobus: there are even many meditation sessions held up in sl
    Xirana Oximoxi: I suppose that it's an interesting way to share it...
    Rhiannon Dragoone: I find that a little strange, but I guess it is a way to share.
    Xirana Oximoxi: Eliza and Zen have also made sl retreats
    eggsalad Ormstein: sorry, gtg
    Rhiannon Dragoone: Yeah, I go to the one at OSHO island sometimes
    Rhiannon Dragoone: wow, that was abrupt.
    Bertram Jacobus: in the beginning i found that strange either, but meanwhile i see and experience that that is possible to do ...
    Xirana Oximoxi: bye eggsalat, nice day
    Rhiannon Dragoone: Hope he wasn't arrested or something.
    Rhiannon Dragoone: lol
    Xirana Oximoxi: :)) I hope so:)
    Bertram Jacobus: *giggle*
    Rhiannon Dragoone: "Officer, could you give me a moment while I day good bye to my SL friends."
    Xirana Oximoxi: :)
    Bertram Jacobus: sometimes i find myself not very skilled in having phantasies ...
    Xirana Oximoxi: why do you say that Bert, related to what?
    Bertram Jacobus: related to rhias funny thoughts here
    Rhiannon Dragoone: And why are you looking at me, when you say that, Bert? lol
    Xirana Oximoxi: ahhh ok:))
    Rhiannon Dragoone: I thought so.
    Rhiannon Dragoone: SL should help that, Bert
    Bertram Jacobus: hehe. my avatar looks ... ehm ... far away - doesn´t he ?
    Bertram Jacobus: in german there is a saying "looking wholes into the air" ...
    Bertram Jacobus: holes
    Rhiannon Dragoone: Well, that kind of relates to martial rts and meditation--filling oids
    Rhiannon Dragoone: *voids
    Bertram Jacobus: oops - rhia disappeared
    Xirana Oximoxi: yes:)
    Rhiannon Dragoone: oh, I'm on Firestorm
    Bertram Jacobus: and there she is again !
    Rhiannon Dragoone: And clicked a button to see what what happen; took me to my last location
    Bertram Jacobus: you can make yourself invisible rhia ? ;-)
    Rhiannon Dragoone: Which was unexpected by cool, as I always wanted a way to do that
    Rhiannon Dragoone: I can, but that wasn't it.
    Bertram Jacobus: nice feature
    Rhiannon Dragoone: Oh, and Xir is a red cloud again.
    Rhiannon Dragoone: yeah, it is.
    Xirana Oximoxi: oh now I'm red???
    Rhiannon Dragoone: There have been a lot of times I wanted to do that; just go back to the last location
    Xirana Oximoxi: usually it is white
    Rhiannon Dragoone: In Firestorm, the clouds are red
    Xirana Oximoxi: ahhh ok:)... yes... fire
    Rhiannon Dragoone: yeah, and intresting; I have this one alt that never rezzed properly; sometimes she's invisible on f
    Rhiannon Dragoone: iFirestorm
    Rhiannon Dragoone: You're coming back, Xia; now you're gray
    Xirana Oximoxi: Firestorm is a special 'mode' in SL?
    Rhiannon Dragoone: And now, you're whole again
    Rhiannon Dragoone: Oh, it's a new viewer; Phoenix on steroids
    Rhiannon Dragoone: Made by the same people, although it's in beta atm
    Xirana Oximoxi: lol... I love colours:)) all colours even grey:)
    Rhiannon Dragoone: You'll love my friend Jamie; lately she's been wearing rainbow clothes and hair
    Xirana Oximoxi: I've seen a rain dress that was so well done... not seen rainbow, sure I would like it:)
    Rhiannon Dragoone: Yeah, I'll have to introduce you to her; maybe she can tell you where she got the clothes and avatar
    Xirana Oximoxi: sometimes grey is considered a 'sad' colour... but a 'grey' day can be soo full of interesting thoughts or feelings
    Xirana Oximoxi: oh! thank you..I would love to see her:)
    Bertram Jacobus: nice view of grey that is ... :-)
    Xirana Oximoxi: somehow can be more intimate and calm feelings
    Rhiannon Dragoone: She usually hangs at PH or PI, if you just want to look for her; her name is ____
    Rhiannon Dragoone: Not spelled right, sorry
    Xirana Oximoxi: and it's good to enjoi all diverse moments and appreciate it..
    Bertram Jacobus: yes. i can understand that ... and agree . and share ... i mean the intimate and calm feelings ...
    Xirana Oximoxi: with their colours
    Xirana Oximoxi: thanks Rhia, I think I'll have to delete her name of the chat log anyway... I've been to PI time ago..I'll go again
    Rhiannon Dragoone: It's really not worth it--PI--but you might find her there
    Xirana Oximoxi: ok:)
