    The Guardian for this meeting was Adams Rubble. The comments are by Adams Rubble.

    Lots of little snippets of our lives today; it was tough to choose from all the title possibilities.

    Adams Rubble: I am sitting in on a course, filling in a weak area for me
    Eliza Madrigal: does it feel funny to be back in student role in a classroom?
    Adams Rubble: just finding it hard to keep up with the reading
    Adams Rubble: who is Longchenpa?
    Eliza Madrigal: Oh! Longchenpa is a wonderful contemplative...
    Eliza Madrigal: His writings are 'two lines at a time' writings
    Adams Rubble: The name sounds Tibertan
    Adams Rubble: like poetry?
    Eliza Madrigal: Here's an example:
    Adams Rubble: or tweets?
    Adams Rubble listens
    Eliza Madrigal: Due to the way in which the distinct, myriad displa arises, emanations occur naturally-the amazng magic of what has ultimate meaning.
    Adams Rubble: Good morning Stevenaia :)
    Eliza Madrigal: They never stray from the wholly positive state in which nothing need be done.
    Eliza Madrigal: :)
    Eliza Madrigal: Hi Stevie :)
    stevenaia Michinaga: morning
    stevenaia Michinaga: h Adams
    Adams Rubble: displa?

    Eliza Madrigal: apologies :)
    Adams Rubble: ahh, thought it was a new concept. hehe
    Eliza Madrigal: :) well, timelessly new
    Eliza Madrigal: But I tend to read L as a kind of 'devotional'
    Adams Rubble: Stevenaia is a new emanation arising this morning :)
    stevenaia Michinaga: i yam?
    stevenaia Michinaga: just here for a bit, wondering if battery will die before friends arrive, today is 5th anniversary of a good friend's death, so we drive two hours to have a picnic on her grave every year, drink champange and eat caviar in her good memoriy, sounds like the way I want to be remembered
    Eliza Madrigal: What a beautiful gesture
    Eliza Madrigal: she must have been lovely... still bringing you all together
    Adams Rubble: Nice to remember Steve. The Victorians did that
    stevenaia Michinaga: and we bury the bottle so she can have some too
    Adams Rubble: :)
    Eliza Madrigal: :)
    stevenaia Michinaga: it does not hurt that she brought us 80 degree weather
    Adams Rubble: Noce weather for a picnic with friends

    Eliza Madrigal: also a devotional practice... intended memory
    Eliza Madrigal: actually had a pab dream last night, with avies laying around on blankets and against trees in a thick grove :)
    Eliza Madrigal: picnic I guess, though I don't remember food but conversations
    Eliza Madrigal: :)
    Adams Rubble: It sounds as if part of your mind is relaxed :)
    Adams Rubble: The people in my dreams are rushing around trying to catch up. hehe
    Eliza Madrigal: hehehe
    Eliza Madrigal: actually this was a part when I tried to follow behind Storm and scrambled a bit to keep up
    Eliza Madrigal giggles
    Eliza Madrigal: *there = this
    Eliza Madrigal: emanations of busyness while not straying from relaxed space? :)
    Adams Rubble: appearances of busyness
    Eliza Madrigal: nods!
    Adams Rubble: I had a ride on a little steamboat yesterday
    Eliza Madrigal: oohhh
    Adams Rubble: for a whole hour the little boat struggled upstream. It's maximum speed was sox knots and the river was rushing down at 4 knots. When we got to a bridge about 1/8 a mile upstream, the current was six knots. When you looked at the water it was racing by. When you looked at the land, we actually had lost ground. After an hour and a quarter of this, we turned around and were back in ten minutes
    Adams Rubble: Life can be like that :)
    Adams Rubble: Good morning Susan :)
    iwandertoo Resident: waves
