    Eliza Madrigal: :::opens floor for top of the head thoughts from everyone:::::
    Eliza Madrigal: :)

    Eos Amaterasu: centers or venues
    Eos Amaterasu: "center?"
    Eliza Madrigal: ah, yes either...
    Eos Amaterasu: fringes

    Susan Sorensson (iwandertoo): someone mentioned that they were traveling for business...for shorter retreats - this might be the doorway to small get togethers
    Eliza Madrigal: as long as the accomodation is for average 11 and nice food choices... space...
    Susan Sorensson (iwandertoo): where the expenses for some wouldnt be so high
    Susan Sorensson (iwandertoo): (eek sorry...)
    Eliza Madrigal: Oh, no, please go on Susan
    Susan Sorensson (iwandertoo): if individuals know they will have trips - perhaps this info could be shared and others could decide
    Susan Sorensson (iwandertoo): if they would be able to meet-up

    Eos Amaterasu: #occupybeing
    Susan Sorensson (iwandertoo): hi Yaku

    Eliza Madrigal: flash gatherings

    Korel Laloix: Would anyone be interested in one at a National Grassland?... in Tents? Or under the stars?
    Susan Sorensson (iwandertoo): yes
    Eliza Madrigal: mmm always interested in stars
    Wol Euler: cool
    Aggers (agatha.macbeth): Me too :)
    Samúð (oo0oo): wow!
    Susan Sorensson (iwandertoo): stars rock
    Eliza Madrigal: :))
    Samúð (oo0oo): Korel :)
    Aggers (agatha.macbeth): Rock stars
    Eliza Madrigal: though, I would not recommend the Fla Everglades....
    Korel Laloix: Just a thought.
    Eliza Madrigal: mosquite practice to whole new level :)
    Susan Sorensson (iwandertoo): lol
    Wol Euler: hehehe
    Maxine Walden: :)
    Samúð (oo0oo): lol
    Korel Laloix: More thinking of Kiowa or Black Kettle NGL.
    Aggers (agatha.macbeth): Not to mention alligators

    Samúð (oo0oo): is one allowed to scratch an alligator bite?

    Eliza Madrigal: yes well they are afraid of the mosquitos too
    Maxine Walden: alligator mosquitoes?
    Eos Amaterasu: Or those places in the US, Korel?
    Korel Laloix: Both in Oklahoma/Kansas.
    Eliza Madrigal: :)) Sam
    Eliza Madrigal: Last week Druth (think druth?) mentioned that it might be nice to have a map of PaB avatars' general areas
    Eliza Madrigal: pin points like stars in the sky....
    Eos Amaterasu: might break SL/RL boundaries for some

    Eos Amaterasu: but we're talking RL
    Eliza Madrigal: Hello Arch :)
    Santoshima: hey Arch
    Aggers (agatha.macbeth): Archie!
    Samúð (oo0oo): :: thinks of how wonderful it would be to see live dances such as Korel has shared::
    Wol Euler: wb arch
    Eliza Madrigal: yes, which is okay... that was item 3 (smaller RL gatherings) and seems great to move up
    Xirana (xirana.oximoxi): hi Arch:)
    Samúð (oo0oo): Arch :)
    Yaku (yakuzza.lethecus): hi arch
    Eliza Madrigal: (brb, apologies, phone)
    Arch (archmage.atlantis): Yes
    Zen (zen.arado): Hi Arch
    Arch (archmage.atlantis): The devil in the detais
    Eos Amaterasu: For example, any cities where there's more than one guardian or PaBer?
    Eos Amaterasu: NY/NJ area
    Wol Euler: yep
    Wol Euler: seattle/vancouver has a few too
    Maxine Walden: yes
    Arch (archmage.atlantis): The Everglades
    Korel Laloix: NY sounds cold.
    Wol Euler: mmhmm
    Eos Amaterasu: sounds like a happy place, Arch
    Arch (archmage.atlantis): The coice where filf gegins

    Wol Euler: O.O you're proposing ND and you think NY might be cold? :)
    Korel Laloix: No, I am thinking Oklahoma.
    Korel Laloix: ND is way out of the way.
    Wol Euler: ah, I misread, sorry
    Korel Laloix: I won't even go up there to dance.... smiles

    Santoshima: my thought is that if someone is going to recommend a location that is near them, they would be willing (and able) to help in being liason to make arrangements in that area. does this seem reasonable?

    Arch (archmage.atlantis): Ttis one planet
    Wol Euler: agreed, santo
    Arch (archmage.atlantis): I cannot rea what I type
    Arch (archmage.atlantis): Yet I believe
    Aggers (agatha.macbeth): Oh dear

    Maxine Walden: seems to have been the custom, Santo
    Santoshima: ok
    Santoshima: not accustomed to the customs

    Korel Laloix: yes, I can get a few tents...... smiles
    Eos Amaterasu: cf http://wiki.playasbeing.org/Retreats/About_Retreats
    Santoshima: :) korel
    Eliza Madrigal: Thanks Santo... Eos has been expert coordinator for last year +.... generally the workings, Eos?
    Eos Amaterasu: may need to be human full-duplex for Arch
    Korel Laloix: What does tha tmean?

    Eos Amaterasu: Yes, a local coordinating person is necessary, to get all the ground details worked out
    Xirana (xirana.oximoxi): hi steve :)

    stevenaia Michinaga: waves

    Eos Amaterasu: San Francisco bay area has several people, I think
    Korel Laloix: Woudl love to go there.
    Eliza Madrigal: :)

    Korel Laloix: My idea would be to have you over at Kiowa, then drag you all to a powwow and make you all get up at open dance time.... smiles

    Wol Euler smiles.
    Eos Amaterasu: PaBers did one RL retreat near Santa Cruz, and another at Hotel Kabuki in San Francisco
    Korel Laloix: Lessons in advance though during the retreat.
    Santoshima: :)***
    Samúð (oo0oo): :)

    stevenaia Michinaga: I have many relatives in the Bay Area, makes it dificult to travel there and be on retreat
    Wol Euler: go incognito

    Aggers (agatha.macbeth): Don't tell them
    Eliza Madrigal giggles
    Wol Euler: send an alt

    Samúð (oo0oo): Korel will make us jump through hoops to meet the local dieties ;)
    stevenaia Michinaga: there is no incognito in my family, they ahve eyes everywhere
    Arch (archmage.atlantis): yes, korel sees
    stevenaia Michinaga: hmmm, Bieup completely dissappeared from my view here brb
    Aggers (agatha.macbeth): OMG

    Santoshima: ok, thanks
    Eliza Madrigal: Thanks Santoshima, feel free to send notes to the group as well... reminding
    Zen (zen.arado): I could recommend a local place but not sure about being able to manage it myself..so hesitate
    Santoshima: you wouldn't necessarily need to organize it, just be a contact

    Eos Amaterasu: The retreat pages http://wiki.playasbeing.org/Retreats) have details about previous retreat venues
    Santoshima: ty

    Maxine Walden: :))
    Eliza Madrigal: that DOES sound fun
    Santoshima: eah
    Santoshima: yeah
    stevenaia Michinaga: a flash retreat!
    Wol Euler: !

    Eliza Madrigal: ah, sounds nice stevie
    Eos Amaterasu: http://www.macleods.com/beachvillage.html, where the sense fields are limitless, with a touch of desolation
    Aphrodite Macbain: nice steve
    Eos Amaterasu: (in Cape Breton, Nova Scotia)
    Aggers (agatha.macbeth) ponders a 'recently created megalithic site'
    Samúð (oo0oo): ::imagines circle forming spontaneously in grand central... Zabutons, a little fountain... recording of birds and owls and water, and a gong or bell::
    stevenaia Michinaga: will look into it , I was there once for a Tai Chi day retreat, quite lovely
    Aphrodite Macbain grins
    Eos Amaterasu remembers the Grand Central Yip-In
    stevenaia Michinaga: someone with rocks and to much time on their hands

    Aphrodite Macbain: Has Maxine mentioned that we came up some recommendations at the retreat?

    Maxine Walden: not yet, aph, had not mentioned the recommendations
    stevenaia Michinaga: http://www.columcille.org/
    Eos Amaterasu: Take off the comma, San (sorry, s/b http://www.macleods.com/beachvillage.html )
    Santoshima: ok, ty
    stevenaia Michinaga: not on the retreat site but nearby

    Aphrodite Macbain: spent some time talking about PaB and coming up with ideas that might help the organzation run smoothly. They are located in the wiki on retreats.
    We hope to address them one by one at the Guardian meetings and at the Working Group.
    The are currently listed here: http://wiki.playasbeing.org/Retreats/2011-09_Seattle_USA
    Aphrodite Macbain: I'll mention them at the 1pm meeting too

    Coffee Mug whispers: Ahh! Fresh Hot Coffee
    Samúð (oo0oo): yess ty for that Aph
    Samúð (oo0oo): helpful
    Santoshima: thanks, stevenaia, suggestion noted
    Aphrodite Macbain: scroll down to the bottom of he page. They are all there

    Eos Amaterasu: Those recommendations are not so much about retreats but _from_ the Vachon Island retreaters
    Aphrodite Macbain: exactly Eos
    Aphrodite Macbain: general recommendatons we had discussed
    Eos Amaterasu: #occupypavilion :-)
    Aphrodite Macbain: Right Maxine?
    Eliza Madrigal: :))
    Eos Amaterasu: how to occupy pavilion
    Aphrodite Macbain: ?
    Eos Amaterasu: those recommendation, Aph

    Xirana (xirana.oximoxi): I will miss the 'hi' 'hellos' 'waves'... 'byes, tcs... :)
    Eliza Madrigal: :) X
    Xirana (xirana.oximoxi): :)
    Aphrodite Macbain: These are only recommendations that came up as a result of concerns raised
    Eos Amaterasu: we need a smart Javascript person to turn all the hellos and goodbyes in the log into a wave
    Eliza Madrigal: possibly middle ways to be found
    Aphrodite Macbain smiles
    Eliza Madrigal: re hello/goodbye dualities
    Eliza Madrigal: hehe
    Maxine Walden: yes, good recommendations, maybe we can speak to them after the topic of retreats which began earlier this meeting, aph :)
    Aphrodite Macbain: It is suggested as a way of making it a but easier for whomever is posting the logs

    Santoshima: could people possible send any recommendations by email to me within the next couple days?
    Santoshima: i'm happy to do the gathering of any additional information
    Santoshima: about placess
    Aphrodite Macbain: regarding retreats San?
    Santoshima: jut need to get going on it while i have time
    Santoshima: yes
    Santoshima: location suggestions
    Santoshima: said i'd compile a list
    Santoshima: cople = couplce
    Santoshima: couple
    Aphrodite Macbain: are there any restrictions to what can be recommended?
    Santoshima: (yikes)
    Santoshima: well, suggest, and then we can determine
    Santoshima: 10-14 people

    Wol Euler: I think we leave that to the discretion of the person who recommends
    Wol Euler: if you think it's appropriate, recommend it

    Santoshima: accessible to international airport
    Santoshima: good ground transportation
    Santoshima: good food and restful setting

    Aphrodite Macbain: I dont want to propose anything impossible
    Eos Amaterasu: btw, over the last two year average number of people at a retreat has been more like 6 or 7 at most

    Santoshima: affordable

    Aggers (agatha.macbeth): Don't do the undoable Aph :)
    Santoshima: pema at last meeting suggested this higher number
    Eliza Madrigal: the expectation would be that fewer retreats = larger groups
    Wol Euler nods.
    Santoshima: to account for a reduced number of retreats per year
    Aphrodite Macbain grins at Aggers.

    Eos Amaterasu: reasonable upper bound, yes, but make sure the finances work with a lower number
    Santoshima: yes
    Eliza Madrigal nods

    Aphrodite Macbain: These are useful suggestions
    Santoshima: ther is possible funding in place for those ho might need it?
    Santoshima: is there?

    Eos Amaterasu: we've had some generous donors who made that possible, and they are still making that possible
    Eliza Madrigal: yes
    Aphrodite Macbain: I gather. But it's not well publicized
    Santoshima: that's great
    Eliza Madrigal: **********Applause!!**********
    Eliza Madrigal: **********Applause!!**********
    Eliza Madrigal: :)
    Aggers (agatha.macbeth) claps
    Maxine Walden: :)
    Eliza Madrigal: much appreciated... each adding to according, etc
    stevenaia Michinaga: Working on winning the lottery to endow PaB
    Eliza Madrigal: (hehe @ Wol)
    Maxine Walden: :)
    Wol Euler: ?
    Eos Amaterasu also wonders
    Eliza Madrigal: (each according, etc) is a classic Wol phrase
    Wol Euler: oh, I see :)
    Eos Amaterasu groks
    Wol Euler: ty :)
    Eliza Madrigal: :)
    Eliza Madrigal: in SL one can't hear my vocal imitation...
    Wol Euler smiles.
    Zen (zen.arado): a Marxian phrase?
    Aphrodite Macbain raises one eyebrow
    Eliza Madrigal: :)
    Zen (zen.arado): (seems to remember)
    Eliza Madrigal: o.O
    Aggers (agatha.macbeth): Illogical captain
    Eos Amaterasu: (how does aph do that?)
    Santoshima: it's genetic
    Wol Euler has a clockwork eyebrow-raising device
    Santoshima: :
    Santoshima: )
    Aphrodite Macbain: practice
    Aggers (agatha.macbeth) winds it up
    Aphrodite Macbain: ouch

    Eos Amaterasu is still wondering if there is a single city where there is more than one guardian
    Aggers (agatha.macbeth): Have I crashed?
    Aggers (agatha.macbeth): Oh
    Santoshima: yes
    Wol Euler pinches you experimentally

    stevenaia Michinaga: there are 4 of us within 90 minutes of Princeton
    Eos Amaterasu: where Pema is now
    Zen (zen.arado): the flying Dutchman
    Zen Arado: (en->de) der fliegende Holländer
    Santoshima: good enough, stev
    Santoshima: that counts
    Aggers (agatha.macbeth): Echt
    Eos Amaterasu: stevenaia, Pema, Adams, and... SophiaSharon?
    Eliza Madrigal: yes Princeton is a good location... whole area
    Wol Euler: didn't Lia just move there too?
    stevenaia Michinaga: iand some a little father (thining SSL)

    Eliza Madrigal: Some of you may be interested in the Art History workshop next week. In the 17th century, a number of Dutch artists began painting images of the local churches and cathedrals. The paintings almost always contain a few figures, some in conversation, and sometimes dogs too, in great, soaring spaces. If you have ever wondered about these paintings, you are in luck.
