    The Guardian for this meeting was Eos Amaterasu. The comments are by Eos Amaterasu.


    Eliza Madrigal: 's current display-name is "Eliza".
    Eos Amaterasu: The pavilion switches tomorrow?
    Eliza Madrigal: yes
    Eliza Madrigal: Bleu was checking out a few things since she'll remove this one
    Eliza Madrigal: which I've really liked
    Eos Amaterasu: yes
    Eos Amaterasu: only thing I'd fiddle with would be the pool, or shape around it
    Eliza Madrigal nods... that's what I feel too
    Eos Amaterasu: thinking of circle in the middle
    Eos Amaterasu: even if with square around it
    Eliza Madrigal: that might be interesting
    Eliza Madrigal: it is hard for me to choose between favorite domes so far though
    Eos Amaterasu: yes
    Eos Amaterasu: maybe each session could choose its pavilion :-)
    Eliza Madrigal: but I'm really impressed with the maturity of designers to receive feedback
    Eliza Madrigal: hah
    Eos Amaterasu: hall of mirrors
    Eos Amaterasu: or selfies
    Eliza Madrigal: only if they wanted to rebuild and take it down each time
    Eliza Madrigal: :))

    Eliza Madrigal: what is interesting in your world these days Eos?
    Eos Amaterasu: hmm
    Eos Amaterasu: different lifestyle in urban apartment
    Eos Amaterasu: with harbour view and close to water (saw the Queen Mary 2 the other day), and people
    Eliza Madrigal: that sounds lovely actually
    Eos Amaterasu: my meditative walks were in the woods
    Eos Amaterasu: now more often among people
    Eos Amaterasu: in the market with wondering eyes
    Eos Amaterasu: (maybe wandering :-)
    Eliza Madrigal: :))
    Eliza Madrigal: equanimity
    Eos Amaterasu: A friend I was close with in college just died
    Eliza Madrigal: oh dear, I'm sorry :(
    Eos Amaterasu: equanimity :-( :-)
    Eliza Madrigal: ((( ))) hard
    Eos Amaterasu: another leaf node of awareness
    Eliza Madrigal: mmmm, nods

    Eos Amaterasu: how's Eliza?
    Eliza Madrigal thinks....
    Eliza Madrigal: happy with puppy
    Eos Amaterasu: :-)
    Eliza Madrigal: you mention appreciating urban setting...
    Eliza Madrigal: today I was watching U-Haul trucks..
    Eos Amaterasu: "there goes a truck"
    Eliza Madrigal: which is a regular pass time of mine now, because this apartment complex seems to be for transitioners like me
    Eliza Madrigal: so I keep watching people move in and out
    Eos Amaterasu: the lifetime hotel
    Eliza Madrigal nods
    Eliza Madrigal: in almost 2 years that I've been here
    Eliza Madrigal: I've met so few people
    Eliza Madrigal: and know maybe 3 by name
    Eliza Madrigal: until the dog :)
    Eos Amaterasu thinks
    Eos Amaterasu: maybe I know 5 by name in this apt
    Eos Amaterasu: building
    Eliza Madrigal: that's positive
    Eliza Madrigal: being situated by the water doesn't sound as transient
    Eliza Madrigal: think you'll like it there for a while?
    Eos Amaterasu: lots of positives, especially the view (I'm on south-east corner, can see harbour as well as South-End Hfx)
    Eos Amaterasu: sense of light
    Eos Amaterasu: very small
    Eos Amaterasu: perhaps too small
    Eliza Madrigal: marvelous view, qualities
    Eliza Madrigal: perhaps the size pushes you out for walks
    Eos Amaterasu: :-)
    Eliza Madrigal: :)
    Eos Amaterasu: I had a bunch of people here the other night (maybe 5)


    Eos Amaterasu: maxed out the seating
    Eliza Madrigal: :)) intimate friends
    Eos Amaterasu: (watching live streaming of last Grateful Dead concert...)
    Eliza Madrigal: oooh, Chicago
    Eos Amaterasu: kind of an event... the tweets were very funny to follow... made it more global....
    Eliza Madrigal suddenly realizes she missed out :)
    Eos Amaterasu: ohhh :-(
    Eliza Madrigal: I remember a friend renting an enormous tv for a concert many moons ago... lots of people filling up his back yard, good experience. Still can feel the feeling
    Eos Amaterasu: #couchtour was the hashtag :-)
    Eliza Madrigal: :)
    Eos Amaterasu: btw, fyi, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MHo1fNnXFVU
    Eliza Madrigal clicks
    Eliza Madrigal: I'll have to open on other computer later... not sure why but sound isn't working
    Eliza Madrigal: maybe due to pulling puppy out of wires :)
    Eos Amaterasu: :-)
    Eliza Madrigal: like having a toddler again
    Eos Amaterasu: puppy has some unconditional quality
    Eliza Madrigal: total openness
    Eliza Madrigal: instant love
    Eliza Madrigal: sharp teeth
    Eliza Madrigal: :)
    Eos Amaterasu: hah

    Eos Amaterasu: how'z yr health?
    Eliza Madrigal: mmm...
    Eliza Madrigal: right this second I'm doing very well
    Eos Amaterasu: hmmm
    Eliza Madrigal: I believe I'm on an upswing
    Eliza Madrigal: but have had some difficulties
    Eliza Madrigal: especially the last month, with various ear and teeth issues
    Eos Amaterasu: walking narrow steps of the path...
    Eliza Madrigal: I've been spending so much time in hospitals and doc offices both with friends, family of friends, myself
    Eliza Madrigal: I never thought of them as friendly places but I feel really comfortable
    Eos Amaterasu: external membranes of care
    Eliza Madrigal: when visiting, there enough to become part of the culture
    Eliza Madrigal: yes
    Eliza Madrigal: another in between sort of space
    Eos Amaterasu: bardo
    Eliza Madrigal: mhm
    Eos Amaterasu: moment by moment
    Eos Amaterasu: we be being
    Eliza Madrigal: and knowledge of that sustained

    Eliza Madrigal: hm, that's something that I keep thinking about lately, in terms of practice
    Eliza Madrigal: though it is a strange thing to articulate..
    Eos Amaterasu perks ears
    Eliza Madrigal: sustained notes
    Eliza Madrigal: as in, memory and attention is brought to places
    Eliza Madrigal: intentionally, for periods of time, blinking in and out or contextual
    Eliza Madrigal: but then there are times when it doesn't fall
    Eliza Madrigal: just keeps going in a more sustained sort of way
    Eliza Madrigal: no real question but seems good to sketch edges sometimes
    Eos Amaterasu: sketching edges.... yes.... better than filling spaces
    Eliza Madrigal smiles
    Eos Amaterasu: a good pavilion sketches edges :-)
    Eliza Madrigal: true
    Eliza Madrigal: and sustains openness in conversation
    Eliza Madrigal: and you, health wise? all well?


    Eliza Madrigal: taking good care?
    Eos Amaterasu: walking my own ever narrower path, ok now
    Eliza Madrigal: didn't realize... glad to hear "ok now"
    Eliza Madrigal: (one sec... barking...)
    Eliza Madrigal: I'm concerned that I will be fined if he loses favor with my neighbors :)))
    Eos Amaterasu: need a big yard
    Eliza Madrigal: well, that can't happen :)
    Eliza Madrigal: I take him out every day, and will more when he has next vaccinations
    Eliza Madrigal: good for both of us, but I think he is having "happy hour" like the kids used to at a certain time of night
    Eliza Madrigal: suddenly energetic
    Eliza Madrigal: burst of alive
    Eos Amaterasu: yes
    Eos Amaterasu: used to feel that when taking my dog for a walk: her awareness lively-ing up
    Eliza Madrigal: a nice feeling, like surfing
    Eliza Madrigal: I remember your dog.... photo in livingroom
    Eliza Madrigal: beautiful, memorable
    Eos Amaterasu: White Tara
    Eliza Madrigal: :)

    Eliza Madrigal: ah, I know what I'd like to ask you...
    Eliza Madrigal: any thoughts on the little retreat and do you think you can make it?
    Eos Amaterasu: oh yes, I definitely want to make it
    Eliza Madrigal: I was thrown off by the infection and now am stirring the plans again
    Eliza Madrigal: any ideas about general themes? not to stick with but to hold lightly?
    Eos Amaterasu: I like idea of framing SL retreat time within some days of 99-days style reporting
    Eliza Madrigal: me too....
    Eos Amaterasu: pavilion in everyday life
    Eliza Madrigal: but do receive feedback not to be too definite on suggestions
    Eos Amaterasu: maybe that continuity note you were mentioning
    Eliza Madrigal listens
    Eliza Madrigal: (and yes! that's the word :))
    Eos Amaterasu: listening to echo of ((( )))
    Eos Amaterasu: maybe finding that in other people
    Eliza Madrigal: that rings so nicely, but can you describe what you mean?
    Eos Amaterasu: maybe that's a light form of "recollection"
    Eos Amaterasu: catching whiff of echo of the space in the middle
    Eos Amaterasu: middle of me, middle of we
    Eliza Madrigal: hmmm yes I see
    Eliza Madrigal: that's a very helpful pointer I think
    Eliza Madrigal: for all of us


    Eliza Madrigal: I'm very glad you will make it
    Eliza Madrigal: still have to pin down times
    Eos Amaterasu: As in what Mickey Hart, drummer, said at end of final concert:

    The feeling we have here — remember it, take it home and do some good with it.
    I’ll leave you with this: Please, be kind.

    Eliza Madrigal: Perfect
    Eliza Madrigal: that's incredible
    Eliza Madrigal: almost as good as Oh Wow Oh Wow Oh Wow :))
    Eliza Madrigal: I'd like to peek upstairs before taking puppy out before bed....
    Eliza Madrigal: but appreciate your wonderful company as always
    Eliza Madrigal: and nice to catch up a bit
    Eos Amaterasu: nice to spend some time with you, thnx
    Eos Amaterasu: be ((( :-) )))
    Eliza Madrigal: (((( and thee )))
    Eliza Madrigal: night ^^
    Eos Amaterasu: Ciao, Eliza
