    Aphrodite Macbain: I found the same thing at Vashon- people really looked like their avi
    Aphrodite Macbain: and behaved like it too
    Aphrodite Macbain: except for the flying
    Alfred Kelberry: it was very interesting how seemingly stranger appearance can become so close and familiar in a matter of minutes :)
    Eliza Madrigal: :)
    Xirana Oximoxi: :)
    Aphrodite Macbain: nods
    SophiaSharon Larnia: :)
    Alfred Kelberry: oh, and... lots of hugs! i loved it :)

    Bertram Jacobus: hehe. yes. a lot of free hugs ;-)
    Mickorod Renard: the hugs were great, and at this time of the year they have carried on in rl too
    Aphrodite Macbain: are you going to plan another one?
    Alfred Kelberry: i'd like to really thank all of you who came. some went through quite a few loops to get there and may share their story later. thank you.
    SophiaSharon Larnia: what kind of group exercises did you do?
    Wol Euler: ideally there should be many of them, aph, in every city.
    Aphrodite Macbain: thanks boxy
    Alfred Kelberry: yes, aph. we started talking about it while in berlin :)
    Aphrodite Macbain: yes? where's the next one?

    Wol Euler: these are free-range meetups! no "permission from the boss" is needed, just do it
    Eliza Madrigal leans in
    Agatha Macbeth: Don't fall in the pool Liz :p
    Wol Euler: regina would work next week, aph :)
    Alfred Kelberry: we had absolutely wonderful 2 meditations. well, the first one was extra special due to guess being the first and it was getting dark and... a few other subtleties :)
    Eliza Madrigal laughs @ Aggers
    Aphrodite Macbain: smiles at wol
    Xirana Oximoxi: ahhh I am curious about the subtilities:))
    Alfred Kelberry: :)
    SophiaSharon Larnia: me too
    Eliza Madrigal: :))
    Aphrodite Macbain: did someone lead the meditations?
    Yakuzza Lethecus: not to forget the improvised candles in the middle during the meditation :)
    Alfred Kelberry: berty was the time keeper for the first. and i think he was the one who actually offered it.
    Alfred Kelberry: yes, yaku!
    Yakuzza Lethecus: i liked that improvised invironment in berts and paradise room :)
    Aphrodite Macbain: lovely
    Wol Euler nods.
    SophiaSharon Larnia: timekeeper, what a funny ring that has for me
    Alfred Kelberry: oh! i should emphasize that paradise was our local eliza for the meetup. she took great care of everyone.
    Bertram Jacobus: yes. and wol had brought up the idea of meditations in advance as well
    Aphrodite Macbain: notices that San has a frog on her head
    SophiaSharon Larnia: haha yay :P
    Archmage Atlantis: This line struck me
    Archmage Atlantis: Aph (aphrodite.macbain): did someone lead the meditations?
    Archmage Atlantis: In Quaker tradition
    Alfred Kelberry: :)
    Eliza Madrigal was wondering if it is the topic frog (very cute) but was thinking to ask after
    Eliza Madrigal: ;-)
    Archmage Atlantis: the meetinig is led by simple being
    Bertram Jacobus: i liked all the improvisation as well. although boxy had organized some necessairy things ...
    Archmage Atlantis: simple being = just being present
    Aphrodite Macbain: like food and drink?
    Bertram Jacobus: we found agreements so fast for everything we did
    Archmage Atlantis: aware
    Alfred Kelberry: yes, berty
    Wol Euler nods.
    Eliza Madrigal: food tastes?
    Xirana Oximoxi: wonderful!
    Bertram Jacobus: food came, gatherings happend, we visited museums, talked, were on xmas market ... :-)
    Wol Euler: and yes, aph, very much like that. She went out to buy "some milk and bread" and came back with six bags of delicatessen and groceries"!

    Alfred Kelberry: haha
    Alfred Kelberry: so true :)
    Aphrodite Macbain: wow!
    Agatha Macbeth: Does Berlin have good museums?
    Aphrodite Macbain: very and many
    Alfred Kelberry: yep
    Agatha Macbeth: Ah good
    Bertram Jacobus: "sure" aggers - it´s the biggest town of germany ...
    Yakuzza Lethecus: well we´ve been at a dali exhibit and at the ethnology museum
    Yakuzza Lethecus: too little time :(
    Agatha Macbeth smiles @ Bert
    Wol Euler: mmhmm, that definitely, I wish we could have stayed a few more days
    Mickorod Renard: even less time for us :(
    Yakuzza Lethecus: glad you came at all!
    Mickorod Renard: so are we
    Aphrodite Macbain: will want to go back now to see more
    oO0Oo Resident: :)
    Yakuzza Lethecus: as well as para who really used a lot of energy to make it

    Aphrodite Macbain: yes, I met her in Toronto in October. She's a warm soul
    Archmage Atlantis: Berlin is the soul of The german speaking ppls, imho
    oO0Oo Resident appreciates the appreciations
    Alfred Kelberry: oh! we went to the museum of entomology and berty found an authentic beduin tent somewhere deep under cover :)
    Wol Euler: gods forbid, arch
    Bertram Jacobus: some came late, some left early, but most of us met each other ... and except of s a t i a we all were together at least once (she visited her brothers after years at that special time and day)
    Archmage Atlantis: Wotin to you w Wol.......o Odin
    Archmage Atlantis: forget which
    Archmage Atlantis: forget the spelling also
    Mickorod Renard: it was special for me in that my wife saw that I conversed with real people when on sl
    Aphrodite Macbain: wonders what "deep undercover" means
    Bertram Jacobus: perhaps we could ask yaku, evelyn and mick - who didn´t tell a lot so far - how their impressions were ? oh - and woly as well ? :-)
    Wol Euler: hehehe
    Agatha Macbeth: Odin/Woden/Wotan
    Alfred Kelberry: mick :)
    Mickorod Renard: ... and that she thought they were all really great too, warm and friendly
    Eliza Madrigal: :)) Mick... so true

    Eliza Madrigal: :)
    Archmage Atlantis: Did anyone tell me if a wall used to be there, in Berlin I mean
    Aphrodite Macbain: watch out, Riddle has a snowball
    Riddle Sideways: got an email that Berlin was Being talked about
    Eos Amaterasu: moi aussi
    Eliza Madrigal: :))
    Wol Euler looks at Eliza
    Wol Euler: thank you! :)
    Eliza Madrigal smiles
    Eos Amaterasu: mum's the word
    Agatha Macbeth: Think they pulled it down Arch :)
    Archmage Atlantis: Tkd Sggir
    Mickorod Renard: I loved the way Morgano and I parted with you folks at the einstein cafe, funny choice

    Aphrodite Macbain: smart

    The Berlin wall

    Archmage Atlantis: oopd
    Alfred Kelberry: hehe
    Alfred Kelberry: yep
    Wol Euler: the wall is long gone, arch, exept for a few ceremonial bits
    Archmage Atlantis: Thanks Aggie
    Alfred Kelberry: and you did it right on time, too!
    Agatha Macbeth smiles
    Wol Euler: which IMHO was a mistake, though I understand why they took it down
    Aphrodite Macbain: a mistake?
    Wol Euler: mmhmm
    Bertram Jacobus: and once again, after the malta and odenwald retreat, i could feel a great appreciation of our group (in berlin, as well as here) ! ... :-)
    Eliza Madrigal: to sell lots of small pieces?
    Wol Euler: in terms of history and city development
    Aphrodite Macbain: how so? It created conflict and economic probblems?
    Alfred Kelberry: berty :)
    Agatha Macbeth: I have a piece of it
    Xirana Oximoxi: I've read that now the small pieces are made in China:)
    Wol Euler: yes, eliza, there are as many genuine bits of the Wall on sale as there are genuine bits of The Cross
    Eliza Madrigal: :)
    Alfred Kelberry: xiri, yep :)
    Xirana Oximoxi: :)
    Agatha Macbeth: All in all it's just another bit of the wall...
    Eliza Madrigal: heheh
    Alfred Kelberry: agreed, aga
    Agatha Macbeth: :p
    Wol Euler: aph, I find it sad that there is now very little record "on the ground" in Berlin of what was after all two generations of history
    Aphrodite Macbain: Humans are a funny lot,
    Wol Euler: that's all
    Eos Amaterasu: I have a skull of Jesus from when he was a child
    Archmage Atlantis: The you person from Nebraska USA who saw the wall come down, who has a piece of it, ......she has a daughter and, after many years of love a divorce
    Eliza Madrigal: @@
    Wol Euler grins.
    Eos Amaterasu: I also have a piece of the wall (somewhere)
    Mickorod Renard: he he he
    Aphrodite Macbain: yes- they should have left a remnant to remind people- like an historic site
    Eos Amaterasu: There is a piece left standing
    Aphrodite Macbain: oh..
    Archmage Atlantis: Um.....she was a child when this happened
    Mickorod Renard: isn't it covered in graffiti now?
    Alfred Kelberry: and bubblegums
    Aphrodite Macbain: smiles at Arch
    Wol Euler: it always was, mick, at least on the west side
    Archmage Atlantis: We move forward
    Archmage Atlantis: agree
    Mickorod Renard: indeed :)

    Aphrodite macbain: progress...?

    Eliza Madrigal: did you find any spontaneous theme of discussion while together?
    Mickorod Renard: erm
    Agatha Macbeth: Mm, good question
    Archmage Atlantis: I thought before this time that stories were fables
    Wol Euler: hmmmm
    Archmage Atlantis: now I see
    Wol Euler: we were talking all the time, but was that "discussion"?
    Archmage Atlantis: some are memories


    Where are we?

    Eliza Madrigal: :)

    Agatha Macbeth: 'And now a word from our sponsors' :P
    Alfred Kelberry: :)

    Bertram Jacobus: i think, one of our not planned topics was community, sharing, knowing each other - can i say that ?
    Eos Amaterasu: /waits to listen to accounts of Berlin meetup
    Archmage Atlantis: The time of ending for this meeting is close
    Wol Euler: yep
    Alfred Kelberry: yes, berty. there were many.
