*Wol Euler was guardian for this session.*

Wol Euler: good morning, Cal

Wol Euler: you are up early, or very late

Calvino Rabeni: Good morning .. yes late-ish

Wol Euler smiles.

Wol Euler: ah, coffee is finally ready. brb

Calvino Rabeni: I'm only here for a brief visit I think

Wol Euler: nice to see you, however briefly

--BELL--

Calvino Rabeni: :)

Calvino Rabeni: The biggest religion in Switzerland?

Wol Euler: I believe the majority are protestant

Wol Euler: but couldn't tell you with certainty

Calvino Rabeni: According to a recent survey it is ...

Calvino Rabeni: Tibetan Buddhism

Wol Euler: O.O

Wol Euler: okaaaaaay

Wol Euler: I'd want to know a little about sample size and methodology :)

Calvino Rabeni: That seems like it would be self-reported, rather than by cultural background

Wol Euler: but even so ...

Wol Euler: there are a lot of Swiss ...

Calvino Rabeni: Yes, it would be good to have a credible source referring to these statistical reports

Calvino Rabeni: giving their methodologies

Wol Euler nods.

Wol Euler: a kind of clearing-house for reliability

Wol Euler: perhaps unworkable :) because that too would be self-reported :)

Calvino Rabeni: Yes ... well a meta collection of research seems feasible

Wol Euler: it would almost be a solution if the poll presenters would give footnotes about size and methods

Wol Euler: that would give us a measure of confidence (or justified skepticism) in the results

Wol Euler: I am reminded of a similar poll in England a few years ago, which gave Pastafarian as the fourth-largest religiion there :)

Wol Euler: I found that result improbable

Wol Euler smiles.

Calvino Rabeni: http://www.amazon.com/Gods-Diseases-...dp/0415520630/

Calvino Rabeni: Is about the movement of psychiatry and other mental health professions back towards treating religion and spirituality as a legitimate human concern

Calvino Rabeni: "The Fish will be the last to know ...

Calvino Rabeni: .. Water" :)

Wol Euler: interesting

Calvino Rabeni: ooh sorry, my brief visit must end :)

Calvino Rabeni: Thanks, take care, WOL :)

Wol Euler: bye cal, sleep well

Calvino Rabeni: TY, Bye

*A brief pause, during which I thought quiet thoughts.*

Alfred Kelberry: wee!

Alfred Kelberry: mmm, woly :)

Alfred Kelberry: *hugs*

Wol Euler: good morning, boxy

Alfred Kelberry: hi :)

Wol Euler rubs your corners

Alfred Kelberry: cute girl :)

Alfred Kelberry: how are you? relaxing before work?

Wol Euler: something like that

Alfred Kelberry: good plan

Alfred Kelberry: read pema's email?

Wol Euler: not yet

Alfred Kelberry: on retreat

Alfred Kelberry: i think he's right. there is less interest now than before.

Wol Euler is sad.

Alfred Kelberry: no, don't be :) *perks your nose*

Wol Euler laughs.

Alfred Kelberry: things change

--BELL--

Alfred Kelberry: evolve

Alfred Kelberry: :

Alfred Kelberry: i think it's important to not label it as good or bad (as pema said)

Wol Euler is still sad.

Alfred Kelberry: yet i think i can sense sadness in his narrative

Wol Euler: mmhmm

Alfred Kelberry: which is something we all sense and it's normal

Alfred Kelberry: yet we have to keep playing and enjoy the present :)

Alfred Kelberry: you never know what awaits around the corner

Wol Euler: of course

Wol Euler: but just on a general note: when the buddha said "don't be attached to your emotions", I do not think he meant "do not HAVE emotions"

Alfred Kelberry: also, 3-4 years period is when often times change happens in the dynamics of married couples :)

Wol Euler: heh

Alfred Kelberry: *nods to emotions*

Alfred Kelberry: i think the gist was to not let those emotions drag you down

Wol Euler: mmhmm

Wol Euler: so, how is Spring in Venice looking?

Wol Euler: oh, I should have sent you my dates and that residence info

Alfred Kelberry: um, can't say just yet

Alfred Kelberry: aph is willing to go in the fall

Wol Euler: well, fall is nice too

Wol Euler: end of september, say: tourists are gone but it's still warm enough to eat outdoors every evening

Alfred Kelberry: yes! :)

Alfred Kelberry: i hope a meetup will pop up in the u.s./canada as well

Wol Euler nods.

Alfred Kelberry: what do you think about the empty slots? should we just drop those unfortunate hours?

Wol Euler sighs.

Wol Euler tries not to have Attachments.

Alfred Kelberry: :)

Wol Euler: which slots are empty?

Alfred Kelberry: 7

Wol Euler: good god.

Alfred Kelberry: look up the eliza's last email

Wol Euler: that's a quarter of the week!

Wol Euler: I had no idea it was so bad

Alfred Kelberry: wait, are you on the wg list?

Alfred Kelberry: ah, you're not

Wol Euler: possibly not

Alfred Kelberry: yes, we discuss this at the moment

Alfred Kelberry: things change and i think we have to adapt and go along rather than try to bring back the past

Alfred Kelberry: that's what pemayana says as well :)

Alfred Kelberry: oh, there's an exciting rumor that i'm not going to tell :)

Alfred Kelberry: something that popped up unexpectedly and also connects the past with the present :)

Wol Euler: ah :)

Wol Euler: teaser

Alfred Kelberry: yep :)

Wol Euler: heheheh

--BELL--

Alfred Kelberry: xiri girl is on

Alfred Kelberry: she wants us in spain :)

Wol Euler: that is fine by me; the issue remains "how many are we?"

Wol Euler: three in spain is not different to three in ireland

Alfred Kelberry: no idea

Alfred Kelberry: 3 is fine by me :)

Wol Euler: I do not believe that we were more than three for spain

Wol Euler: hello xir!

Wol Euler: yay for new computers

Alfred Kelberry: ah, congrats! fresh computer for the friday mayhem :)

Xirana Oximoxi: are you talking about coming to Spain?

Alfred Kelberry: yes, in common terms

Wol Euler: we are talking about how sad it is that only 3 people wanted to go on retreat this summer

Xirana Oximoxi: yes...coming to SL with no good computer is not fun :)

Xirana Oximoxi: ah yes.. it's sad

Xirana Oximoxi: but I also understand that it's quite expensive coming from the other side of the world

Wol Euler: sure

Wol Euler: but it is no cheaper for us to go there!

Xirana Oximoxi: yes..the same:)

Alfred Kelberry: what's the closest big city from you, xiri?

Xirana Oximoxi: well...Barcelona is 100 km. :)... and then the most next to me is Vic

Xirana Oximoxi: it's a small city, but nice and quick to visit

Alfred Kelberry: barcelona is sure worth a visit :)

Xirana Oximoxi: yes...in Barcelona there are a lot of things to do, to visit, restaurants..activities...

Wol Euler nods.
