    The Guardian for this meeting was Riddle Sideways. The comments are by Riddle Sideways joined by Raffila, Ewan and Alfred.

    A short and sweet.


    Raffila Millgrove: hi Riddle
    Riddle Sideways: Welcome Raffila

    Riddle Sideways: was just settling in
    Raffila Millgrove: i came by and wait the 1/2 hr at 1 am but no one came.. but at least session was covered.
    Riddle Sideways: what's new today?
    Riddle Sideways: yep, that is what we do
    Raffila Millgrove: oh... i am busy finishing my medical center. I got an invite to rebuilt it at another sim.. so I am very happy.... that chance came along.
    Riddle Sideways: umm, medical center for sick avatars?
    Raffila Millgrove: you know Pab.. they comfort me when I lost everything 1000s of item medical that i had collected over five years.. and I rebuilt it all on my land.. so i could feel it was my choice to put it all away. you know?
    Raffila Millgrove: so now i suddenly have opportunity to build again.. where there is lots of traffic and ... people who are interested.
    Riddle Sideways: great
    Raffila Millgrove: if i had not spent all that time.. replacing and looking for new item..well i couldn't have said yes to the invite.

    Raffila Millgrove: what's new with you?
    Raffila Millgrove: hi ewan
    Riddle Sideways: (ha, do not always assume cursor is in correct window and just start typing)
    Riddle Sideways: Hi Ewan
    Ewan Bonham: hi Folks..

    Riddle Sideways: well, the topic is missing
    Riddle Sideways: hard to find
    Alfred Kelberry: hi there :)
    Riddle Sideways: Hi boxy puppie
    Riddle Sideways: opps, ... Hi Mighty Pirate

    Alfred Kelberry: i bring you the topic - the olympics! :)
    Riddle Sideways: ok
    Riddle Sideways: that sure has preoccupied a lot of time this week
    Alfred Kelberry: riddle, any sport you like in particular?
    Riddle Sideways: imagine the mental attitude control that atheletes possess
    Raffila Millgrove: hi boxy
    Alfred Kelberry: ms raffi :)

    Ewan Bonham: We need to exercise some of that in our daily lives..
    Alfred Kelberry: riddle, yes. it may be half of the win.

    Riddle Sideways: and hope you saw the Wired mag articles on how tech and sci. have helped olympians
    Alfred Kelberry: no, haven't read

    Riddle Sideways: mentally should 'park' all those little defeats we get each day
    Alfred Kelberry: ewan, what is your recipe? :)
    Riddle Sideways listens, always likes new recipes

    Ewan Bonham: I think I need to watch my thought and then all oew myself the willingness to come back in focus to the moment.
    Alfred Kelberry: ewan, can you give an example?

    Ewan Bonham: During a time when I feel sidtracted by worry thoughts or dobts..
    Ewan Bonham: And then come back to loving conversation..

    Riddle Sideways: sidetracked maybe equals out of the game (attitude) for a while
    Alfred Kelberry: ewan, is it similar to having a positive attitude? i.e. seeing a glass half full
    Riddle Sideways: or maybe more like what a goalie has to do
    Riddle Sideways: to 'park' that last goal against and get back in the game
    Riddle Sideways: park those neg. thoughts until later?
    Alfred Kelberry: what do you mean by parking? ignore the negative, or maybe escape to "positive"?
    Ewan Bonham: I mean to give them credence, but then to consciously switch to the positive moment..
    Ewan Bonham: This is not an easy thing to do.
    Ewan Bonham: But I do it to maintain my sanity..
    Raffila Millgrove nods. Wishing you all a good day!
    Riddle Sideways: bye Raff

    Alfred Kelberry: ewan, give credence. i like it.
    Ewan Bonham: I must go as well..- thank you..
    Alfred Kelberry: bye, ewan
    Riddle Sideways: bye ewan
    Alfred Kelberry: ok, i'm off as well

    Riddle Sideways: mind does not like to be ignored, denied, etc. or forced away/toward
    Alfred Kelberry: be good :)
    Riddle Sideways: ok bye
    Riddle Sideways: be !


          Everybody else exits.  The commentator gives a soliloquy.  And the play ends early.
                 which sounds better than continuing to talk to oneself.

    Riddle Sideways: a recipe would be to not go dualistic of pos/neg at all.
    Riddle Sideways: Just inform self that those are very interesting thoughts that will be came back to, later = park them
    Riddle Sideways: However, make sure they are came back to (really).
    Riddle Sideways: an I knows when I is fooling I
