    Eden Haiku: Lots of rain all night.

    Adams Rubble: we had an eenzie teensie bit of rain last night

    Eden Haiku: Yes back in town now. Moved in last Monday.

    Eden Haiku: Something happened as I was greeting Riddle, a few minutes ago.

    Riddle Sideways: ?

    Eden Haiku: Heard a thump in the window

    Eden Haiku: Thought it might be a bird (but it never happened)

    Riddle Sideways: birds hit this office window often

    Eden Haiku: It's a small bird, lying face up on the balcony

    Adams Rubble: :(

    Riddle Sideways: oh dear

    Eden Haiku: Took a piece of paper towel to turn it back

    Eden Haiku: It didn't move

    Eden Haiku: Is it only stunned maybe?

    Adams Rubble: might be

    Riddle Sideways: might be

    Adams Rubble: but prognosis not good for birds who hit windows

    Riddle Sideways: give it some time

    Eden Haiku: That's a bad omen isn’it? Even if I'm not superstitious, it’s sad...

    Adams Rubble: not a bad omen, just a sad event

    Eden Haiku: Yes. I will let it be. It's a small grey bird with a yellow belly...

    Adams Rubble: it means your window was reflecting at that time

    Eden Haiku: Thanks Adams. But the sun isn't out and I had no time to clean the windows last week...

    Adams Rubble: of course

    Eden Haiku: Will keep you posted about the bird situation as we go. Hope he's only stunned....

    Eden Haiku: Was reading the yellow jackets situation of last week...

    Riddle Sideways: yes, need constant updates on this breaking story

    Riddle Sideways: oh, the Internet and WWWeb is so amazing. Who knew there were so many superstition meaning sites

    Adams Rubble: after cats and vaccines, it is what the internet does best

    Eden Haiku: Oh... better not read that, I will start being afraid...

    Riddle Sideways: yes, get away from Those pages

    Riddle Sideways: reading those sites may be harmful to mental health

    Adams Rubble: :)

    Riddle Sideways: take 3 funny cat vids and get away from the computer




    Adams Rubble: I have enough superstitions my mother taught me


    A proper funeral


    Eden Haiku: I see I'm not the only one confused about the Abraham-Isaac/Ishmael story...

    Riddle Sideways: ah, the don't step on a crack

    Eden Haiku: Awwwgrw!

    Adams Rubble: my mother did not teach me that one

    Riddle Sideways: good

    Riddle Sideways: amazing to read that story yearly and get more different things out of one story

    Eden Haiku: The Museum Annex created by Dubrovna looks great, with Shiva, Rama etc...

    Riddle Sideways: yes, stayed and read many of the notes

    Eden Haiku: Would you have a link for it Rubble?

    Riddle Sideways: relogged there and read some more

    Riddle Sideways: still not done

    Eden Haiku: Wow, that's a lot of info to take in Riddle, should we quizz you :)

    Riddle Sideways: OH NO

    Eden Haiku: mischievously smiles

    Riddle Sideways: did not know there would be a test

    Adams Rubble raises hand "Call on me. Call on me"

    Adams Rubble: just kidding

    Riddle Sideways: not ready for the Monday snap quiz

    Riddle Sideways: D-g ate the notecards

    Eden Haiku: Ok, quizzing the brilliant kid of the class: how many arms sports the dancing Shiva Nataraj?

    Adams Rubble: that isn’t in the exhibit :)

    Adams Rubble: this reminds me of a role playing routine I saw this week (it is an old one)

    Eden Haiku: Ah! ... Nataraj has four arms so you know. Would love to visit later or some other day.

    Eden Haiku: Playing role routine?

    Adams Rubble: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XMOKMS1MURk

    Eden Haiku: Ah, not visible from here :(

    Adams Rubble: sorry it is 6 minutes

    Adams Rubble: it is a Gary Gulman routine that he did on Conan (I don' have a date)

    Eden Haiku: Bird still stunned or dead.Starting to wonder what kind of proper funeral I can provide for the poor bird…

    Adams Rubble: love your hair Eden, it is very different for you

    Eden Haiku: Thanks Adams,

    Eden Haiku: Closer to my RL hair :)

    Adams Rubble: :)


    [A big chunk of next section has been edited as we talked about our RL typists ]


    Eden Haiku: What would you suggest for a bird funeral ceremony?

    Eden Haiku: An AI interactive game/device downtown gave me 7 years of age last Saturday :)

    Eden Haiku: That's the inner child you meet I guess :)

    Riddle Sideways: have heard of that app

    Eden Haiku: The poor bird is still inert

    Eden Haiku: I guess its time had come...

    Adams Rubble: very sorry the bird incident has darkened your morning. Would those bird stickers for windows be in order or is this a one time issue?

    Eden Haiku: First time ever....

    Riddle Sideways: probably will not happen again the

    Riddle Sideways: n

    Eden Haiku: Maybe I can bury the bird under autumn leaves in the park? And sing a little song? [did that!]

    Adams Rubble: yes

    Riddle Sideways: that would be nice

    Eden Haiku: I feel so sad for the bird..,

    Eden Haiku: I didn't even know it...

    Eden Haiku: But he chose to thump on my window this morning, right at the beginning of the session

    Eden Haiku: And died

    Eden Haiku: Days of Awe indeed....

    Adams Rubble: many birds die flying into windows

    Eden Haiku: Heard of it, never experienced it...

    Adams Rubble nods

    Adams Rubble: same here




    Eden Haiku: And your yellow jackets, what happened?

    Adams Rubble: the yellow jackets are history. I swept up the bodies so the birds would not eat the poison

    Riddle Sideways: sorry, but have to run out to put back some cables and stuff moved around yesterday, before the Monday people need them

    Eden Haiku: History: it's a nice way to put it :)

    Riddle Sideways: thank you and am very sorry the bird happened

    Adams Rubble: will you be here tomorrow Riddle?

    Eden Haiku: Thanks Riddle! Have a great Monday of Awe :)

    Adams Rubble: whoops




    Adams Rubble: I am sorry the bird hit your window too eden but you must not feel guilty

    Eden Haiku: No no, I don't feel guilty... Just wondering what is the significance of it...

    Adams Rubble: light reflected in your window in a way that made the bird think it was an opening

    Adams Rubble: it may have been the time of the year or the cloudy day or whatever

    Adams Rubble: or a bird on a crazy path

    Eden Haiku: Probably none. Just interpreting reality as we do all the time don't we?

    Adams Rubble:yes, trying to make sense of appearances

    Eden Haiku: A bird crazy path :)

    Adams Rubble: we can always revert to APAPB :)

    Adams Rubble: a presentation of Being

    Adams Rubble: or presence

    Adams Rubble: I get those two mixed up

    Eden Haiku: Appearances presenting appearances playing as being is that it?

    Adams Rubble: Appreciate the presentation of Appearance as the presence of Being

    Adams Rubble: in this case life and death

    Adams Rubble: the bird was

    Eden Haiku: Ah, yes! Never memorized it as you see...

    Eden Haiku: This is a Day of Awe, really...

    Adams Rubble: When I had my visions, Pema always cautioned me not to over interpret them

    Adams Rubble: to appreciate them and then move on

    Eden Haiku: You had visions?

    Adams Rubble: They did not make me a Joan of Arc (my words not his)

    Adams Rubble: yes, they are recounted in my blog and in the logs

    Eden Haiku: Joan was more into voices :)

    Adams Rubble: I had voices too but I had to work to get rid of them

    Eden Haiku: Will go explore the deep logs :)

    Adams Rubble: not to get too puffed up but the avatar Adams Rubble helped in those :)

    Eden Haiku: Appreciate and move on, nice way to go...

    Eden Haiku: I see what you mean Adams and it's a part of you I was completely unaware of...

    Eden Haiku: I appreciate the presentation of appearance of this as the presence of Being and I am in awe :)

    Eden Haiku: Thank you

    Adams Rubble: :)




    Eden Haiku: I'm also dealing with visions and voices and I feel less alone :)

    Adams Rubble: :)

    Adams Rubble: whoops. interruption. brb - understand if you have to go

    Eden Haiku: ok

    Adams Rubble: back

    Eden Haiku: Chatting on Twitter as I wait to say goodbye to you and wish you a Monday of Awe!

    Adams Rubble: :)

    Adams Rubble: Thank you for hosting and I hope you have a wonderful day :)

    Adams Rubble: It was a good session :)

    Eden Haiku: Nice to follow you on FB. I joined a few days ago only and was surprised you found me. So mysterious this world.

    Adams Rubble: :)

    Adams Rubble: I had looked at your twitter but I am rarely on twitter

    Adams Rubble: Nice to see your deer too

    Adams Rubble: hard to keep more than one social media going

    Adams Rubble: I don't know how you will be able to do it :)

    Eden Haiku: Enjoy the presentation of appearances and thanks for the link to the Museum Annex :) I miss the deer. Nice cats in my neighborhood though :)

    Eden Haiku: FB will

    Eden Haiku: Will downsize a lot with FB, keep it to a minimum. Otherwise, I won't have time for LIFE!!!

    Adams Rubble: OK, off to my many projects....

    Adams Rubble: yes, FB can be time consuming.

    Eden Haiku: Bye bye, thanks for being here!

    Adams Rubble: lots of angry people complaining

    Adams Rubble: :)

    Adams Rubble: whoops

    Adams Rubble: how did that happen? [Adams found herself in the pool]

    Adams Rubble: bye
