    The Guardian for this meeting was Yaku.

    Yakuzza Lethecus: hey eliza
    Eliza Madrigal: Hi Yaku :)
    Eliza Madrigal: Will you do me a small favor?
    Yakuzza Lethecus: whcih ?
    Eliza Madrigal: I need to make sure I can hear SL sound
    Eliza Madrigal: Would you try talking? If you can
    Eliza Madrigal: I think I can hear but so lightly
    Eliza Madrigal: try once more? I've adjusted volume
    Yakuzza Lethecus: and it might be interrupted, it´s a bad connection here i can look for a headset ,we brought one
    Eliza Madrigal: it is storming here too
    Eliza Madrigal: I think it should be OK because I heard a little something
    Eliza Madrigal: but Darren will lead a meditation in voice during retreat session today
    Eliza Madrigal: aha!
    Eliza Madrigal: perfectly clear now
    Eliza Madrigal: thanks so much
    Yakuzza Lethecus: yw
    Eliza Madrigal: (I have no mic on this computer so can't respond in kind)

    Eliza Madrigal: we have about 6 computers now - 3 people -, all for diff things
    Yakuzza Lethecus: plus mobile devices i guess
    Eliza Madrigal: oh yes, those too
    Yakuzza Lethecus: it´s the perfect way to have a full flat ,,i might use this again"
    Yakuzza Lethecus: my old laptop is quiet unused for month in a corner as a ,,backup"
    Eliza Madrigal nods...a net
    Eliza Madrigal: SL was too tough on the laptop I use for everything else
    Eliza Madrigal: so it was best to keep it on a separate computer that has few jobs
    Eliza Madrigal: then my son has gaming and school, and it is best to keep those separated for concentration purposes


    Yakuzza Lethecus: are you having a fixed working position somewhere ?
    Eliza Madrigal: until recently, yes. now I am considering a big move and have only a few small jobs
    Yakuzza Lethecus: i hope that recently wasn´t the reason why you moved out of the house
    Eliza Madrigal: I think I want to work in some kind of active environment since I keep gaining weight
    Eliza Madrigal: Oh no, thank you.
    Eliza Madrigal: I like living smaller
    Eliza Madrigal: but this place is so noisy and I'd like to be closer to the water
    Yakuzza Lethecus: just thinking since i finally got a job in sweden
    Yakuzza Lethecus: and actually we also moved but to a little bit bigger place, but it´s also much louder there
    Eliza Madrigal: Congratulations!
    Eliza Madrigal: oh :( nice to have a larger place with family though... home is the center of so much
    Eliza Madrigal: and you both have relatives to bring over
    Yakuzza Lethecus: yes, we have a spare room for that now
    Eliza Madrigal: times and seasons for different things
    Eliza Madrigal: I think the main thing is, to listen to one another and be flexible if and when change is needed
    Eliza Madrigal: must feel really nice though
    Yakuzza Lethecus: at the moment, well right now i am in my old apartment
    Eliza Madrigal: ohh
    Yakuzza Lethecus: not as much furniture any longer
    Yakuzza Lethecus: we are on vacation
    Eliza Madrigal: oh that's right
    Eliza Madrigal: thanks for being here even so!
    Yakuzza Lethecus: it´s still not rented out again
    Yakuzza Lethecus: so we can still use it
    Eliza Madrigal: :)

    Eliza Madrigal: there has been so much change for you, in the time we've known one another
    Eliza Madrigal: suppose that's true of me too, but less on the surface ;-)
    Yakuzza Lethecus: yes, but actually i think i get less time to reflect on things on explore
    Yakuzza Lethecus: a lot less freedom with all positive sides and negative sometimes
    Eliza Madrigal nods
    Eliza Madrigal: always miss the other side of the coin
    Eliza Madrigal: but again, time and seasons
    Eliza Madrigal: I will be 45 in a few weeks, and my three children are grown... went by so quickly although because I was lonely in marriage there were times it was very hard
    Yakuzza Lethecus: in the states you really don´t have freedom of choice with schools ?
    Eliza Madrigal: mmm, not too much. we have charter schools and magnets, private and public....
    Eliza Madrigal: but really there are all kinds of filters and games you have to play
    Eliza Madrigal: unless you have a lot of money
    Eliza Madrigal: what sorts of choices do you have there?
    Yakuzza Lethecus: well you can apply for all schools, they don´t have to take the kids but there are some limits, a local school in where we live in sweden had to close because there weren´t enough students since they all drive 15 miles further since the quality was so much better there
    Yakuzza Lethecus: now there isn´t a highschool locally any longer
    Eliza Madrigal: wow
    Yakuzza Lethecus: just a few middleschools


    Eliza Madrigal: but as long as you can get to the one a bit farther I guess the system is changing according to needs/wants
    Yakuzza Lethecus: well ask me in 14 years about that :)
    Eliza Madrigal laughs
    Eliza Madrigal: nice that you are thinking about these things now
    Yakuzza Lethecus: preschool system is better then in germany
    Eliza Madrigal: you'll be ready ^^
    Yakuzza Lethecus: no good daycare where i lived
    Eliza Madrigal: I've thought of Sweden as having high standards all around
    Eliza Madrigal: like a buddha land of earth
    Eliza Madrigal: :))
    Yakuzza Lethecus: if you see the buddha on the road
    Eliza Madrigal looks outside at an amazing storm
    Eliza Madrigal: :P

    Eliza Madrigal: apologies
    Yakuzza Lethecus: wb
    Eliza Madrigal: thank you
    Eliza Madrigal: we have big storms, but it wasn't the storm but dog that unplugged me
    Yakuzza Lethecus: :)
    Eliza Madrigal: although, his restlessness has to do with the storm so it is all connected
    Yakuzza Lethecus: actually i had an internet device in sweden that was stuck and needed to be resettet, today we read that there was a poweroutage yesterday, and now i was able to connect to it again :P
    Eliza Madrigal: :))
    Yakuzza Lethecus: was a bit funny first time i was hoping for such a thing to happen
    Eliza Madrigal: "phenomenal world playing with us"
    Eliza Madrigal: a phrase Eos used yesterday during retreat ^^
    Eliza Madrigal: excuse me for another minute please - apologies
    Eliza Madrigal: I need to get things settled here


    Eliza Madrigal: :) back, thanks
    Eliza Madrigal: I think I should go to the retreat space and sort of settle in/condition the environment. Enjoy your vaca, yaku - hugs to family
    Yakuzza Lethecus: take care eliza
    Eliza Madrigal waves
    Yakuzza Lethecus: bye for now
