    No headers
    This week's guardian session was attended by Xirana, Agatha, Bleu, Yakuzza, Aphrodite, and Eliza.


    When you reread what you wrote a few days later you probably get a
    different perspective, but the main idea is to poke holes in our ideas
    of reality.

    Agatha Macbeth: What were we going to discuss again?

    Bleu (bleu.oleander): from one end to other
    Bleu (bleu.oleander): with quotes from wiki
    Agatha Macbeth: Ah
    Bleu (bleu.oleander): everyone choose one
    Bleu (bleu.oleander): just one of the party ideas :)
    Eliza (eliza.madrigal): the anniversary of PaB on April 1... there are some ideas being developed and one of them is the gates...

    Agatha Macbeth: Orange shoes? Wow, very dutch :p
    Bleu (bleu.oleander): :)
    Eliza (eliza.madrigal): yes :)

    Eliza (eliza.madrigal): Sunshine is looking forward to helping with that
    Bleu (bleu.oleander): a group of Buddhist monks led a walk through the gates in central park

    Aphrodite Macbain: me too Xirana!!
    Xirana (xirana.oximoxi): wb Agg :)
    Agatha Macbeth: ty :)
    Eliza (eliza.madrigal): it is such a simple yet hugely meaningful thing to choose a quote...
    Eliza (eliza.madrigal): for me, the wiki is such a treasure trove
    Aphrodite Macbain: nods
    Bleu (bleu.oleander): so people could email me and I'll make the textures with the quotes
    Agatha Macbeth: Indeed
    Aphrodite Macbain: It's a great quote you used Bleu smiles
    Eliza (eliza.madrigal): :)))
    Bleu (bleu.oleander): yes, I like that one too :)
    Xirana (xirana.oximoxi): we choose a quote in the wiki?
    Bleu (bleu.oleander): yes
    Xirana (xirana.oximoxi): ok :)
    Bleu (bleu.oleander): would you like me to leave up this sample?
    Aphrodite Macbain: Sad to see Bruce didn't make it today. Hope he's ok. He was unable to take his session yesterday b/c he was feeling woozy
    Eliza (eliza.madrigal): We have not yet discussed the "tree" part of the vision, but this is just the beginning of things... ideas are so welcome
    Aphrodite Macbain: nods
    Agatha Macbeth: Aww
    Eliza (eliza.madrigal): Ohhh... sorry to hear that Aphrodite... he was feeling perky and strong before
    Bleu (bleu.oleander): can you summarize the other ideas so far?
    Aphrodite Macbain: I imagined the tree filled with leaf shaped images of all its members
    Aphrodite Macbain: standing in the centre of the pavilion
    Bleu (bleu.oleander): I'm sorry, but I have to leave
    Eliza (eliza.madrigal): pavilion or dome?
    Eliza (eliza.madrigal): OK Bleu
    Agatha Macbeth: Bye Bleu
    Bleu (bleu.oleander): but hope to see everyone for happiness later at noon
    Eliza (eliza.madrigal): See you later when I"M SURE the sim will let us in
    Eliza (eliza.madrigal): :)))
    Agatha Macbeth: Hopefully, yes
    Xirana (xirana.oximoxi): bye bye Bleu!! have a nice time and see you later!!
    Bleu (bleu.oleander): bye for now
    Aphrodite Macbain: 1. The Gates
     Christo's or torii style gates connecting the Dome with the pavilion.
     Maybe other places too.
     2. The Anniversary Tree
     A big tree in the center of the Dome or the pavilion. Each paber
     creates an object - a leaf, or resembling one, for the tree. The theme
     is "What PaB is / has been for me?"
     3. 8 years from now
     The theme: What PaB will be like in 8 years? No details yet. Maybe
     each paber creates an exhibit or some other collective project. Maybe
     a short written notecard. Location unknown.
    Yaku (yakuzza.lethecus): bye
    Aphrodite Macbain: This is what Alfred summarized
    Aphrodite Macbain: Looks like few are here to discuss this
    Aphrodite Macbain: or I was too late
    Eliza (eliza.madrigal): yes, I'd say this is a pre discussion discussion
    Eliza (eliza.madrigal): :)
    Xirana (xirana.oximoxi): yes...interesting ideas
    Agatha Macbeth: 8 years...good grief
    Eliza (eliza.madrigal): the tree in particular hasn't been fully formed yet as an idea...
    Aphrodite Macbain: perhaps I'll raisie it at my discussion at 1 today
    Eliza (eliza.madrigal): oh, that's a good idea, though your session spills over from happiness so that may be the pervasive mood :)
    Aphrodite Macbain: Is it approriate to do so if there are non guardians there?
    Eliza (eliza.madrigal): sure, to some extent...
    Eliza (eliza.madrigal): actually it is a nice way for people to feel the energy of the group
    Eliza (eliza.madrigal): Luci came to PaB during the first sculpture exhibit and party
    Aphrodite Macbain: I feel the fiends of PAB should be involved in the celebrations to some extent
    Agatha Macbeth: Plenty of that :)
    Eliza (eliza.madrigal): :)))
    Eliza (eliza.madrigal): anyway, we don't have to figure it all out today
    Aphrodite Macbain: not just guardians
    Agatha Macbeth: Yep, still a month to play with
    Eliza (eliza.madrigal): yes
    Eliza (eliza.madrigal): So for today we can begin with the gates...
    Eliza (eliza.madrigal): asking for everyone to send quotes to Bleu
    Aphrodite Macbain: Ok I'll get the non guardian members to be involved in the discussions too
    Eliza (eliza.madrigal): if it seems natural Aph
    Aphrodite Macbain: and get them to explore the wiki too
    Aphrodite Macbain: of course
    Eliza (eliza.madrigal): they may like to come to the party... but guardians will be the ones drawing from the wiki I think?
    Aphrodite Macbain: hmm
    Agatha Macbeth: Probably
    Aphrodite Macbain: we need new guardians
    Eliza (eliza.madrigal): or we may have 10 000 gates
    Aphrodite Macbain: what better way to get friends involved than being part of the process?
    Agatha Macbeth: Oh noez...the lag!!
    Eliza (eliza.madrigal): yes true
    Aphrodite Macbain: I doubt that!!
    Xirana (xirana.oximoxi): exactly!! it's nice to be open to all to participate
    Eliza (eliza.madrigal): anyone who likes us that much to have a favorite quote , we should know about :))
    Aphrodite Macbain: nods. of the friends, perhaps 5 will want to participate further
    Aphrodite Macbain: our challenge is to get more people interested and not just the smaller few
    Aphrodite Macbain: yes Eliza!
    Aphrodite Macbain wants Agger's tights
    Agatha Macbeth: I'll be cold then :(
    Eliza (eliza.madrigal): :))
    Aphrodite Macbain: I'll give u my jeans
    Xirana (xirana.oximoxi): me too :))
    Eliza (eliza.madrigal): Xirana I've been getting so many complements on your dress the last few days :)

    Aphrodite Macbain: rats!

    Agatha Macbeth: Tryin to remember where I got them
    Aphrodite Macbain: The dress you're wearing Eliza?
    Eliza (eliza.madrigal): this dress if made of one of Xiri's paintings
    Eliza (eliza.madrigal): may recognize now that I've said that...
    Aphrodite Macbain: Oh how fabulous!
    Eliza (eliza.madrigal): :))
    Agatha Macbeth: It's beautiful
    Aphrodite Macbain: great idea
    Eliza (eliza.madrigal): oO0Oo wears it better but yes it is really beautiful
    Aphrodite Macbain: How do you feel about your painting being turned into a dress Xirana?
    Xirana (xirana.oximoxi): they do a dress of every artist that exhibits there...today is a new opening...and a new dress as a gift :)
    Aphrodite Macbain: awww.
    Agatha Macbeth: I think it's agreat idea
    Eliza (eliza.madrigal): it is a wonderful idea because they actually do a nicely shaped dress
    Aphrodite Macbain: I found some dresses that were made from modernist paintings
    Aphrodite Macbain: both Paradise and I raided the place
    Xirana (xirana.oximoxi): I like it... and it has given me the idea to decorate furniture with my paintings too:)) but no business:)
    Eliza (eliza.madrigal): ah, I've seen a few of those Aph
    Eliza (eliza.madrigal): :)) Xiri
    Xirana (xirana.oximoxi): :))
    Agatha Macbeth: heheh
    Aphrodite Macbain: let me know when you do Xir!
    Xirana (xirana.oximoxi): I have no patience to learn how to work with the scrips to make the people sit correctly :)
    Eliza (eliza.madrigal): :))
    Aphrodite Macbain: They are so easily bought for few L$
    Eliza (eliza.madrigal): It may take me a day, but when I notify everyone of the posted guardian session, I'll highlight the gates idea and say that a follow-up email will come from the WG clarifying the other ideas.
    Eliza (eliza.madrigal): oh my Xiri
    Eliza (eliza.madrigal): heheh
