    Appearing, disappearing...

    2010.06.28 07:00 - A Soft Susurration of Conversation

    Yakuzza Lethecus: hey zen, huhu corvie :)
    Corvuscorva Nightfire grins at Yak.
    Eden Haiku: Like is Yaku saluting Corvi with huhu imitating a bird intentionnaly? Or not?
    Corvuscorva Nightfire guffaws.
    Yakuzza Lethecus: i haven't seen corvi in a while
    Corvuscorva Nightfire: it's nice to be here.
    Eden Haiku: Yes, it is a joy seeing you again :)


    Eden Haiku: We were talking about puzzles and synchronicities Storm, and birds :)
    Storm Nordwind: That seems a set of fascinating topics
    Eden Haiku: By the way, would anyone here would know the English name for birds flying together in a pattern?
    Corvuscorva Nightfire: like blackbirds do? or like geese do?
    Eden Haiku: Yes, Cor
    Storm Nordwind: squadron?
    Yakuzza Lethecus: you mean bird migration ?
    Zen Arado: not sure we have one
    Storm Nordwind: I think means a collective noun
    Eden Haiku: Been looking for the word for a while. In French we use "vollier'
    Zen Arado: usually just 'flock'
    Eden Haiku: Yes, I have seen squadron Storm, is that the right one you think?
    Eden Haiku: Ah yes, flock...
    Storm Nordwind: Flock is disorganized though. I think Eden means holding to a pattern
    Corvuscorva Nightfire: nods..I don't think there's a name for the things that groups of birds do  really?
    Zen Arado: thinks of planes with squadron
    Corvuscorva Nightfire: because "flying in patterns" is different from being "a group of birds?"
    Storm Nordwind: There are plenty of collective nouns for different sorts of birds, but not specially as a flying formation
    Eden Haiku: I have seen a very spetacular example in Delhi, in a strange setting. On rooftops.
    druth Vlodovic: geese, vs crows
    Storm Nordwind: gaggle of geese, murder of crows, storm of sparrows etc
    Corvuscorva Nightfire: blackbirds vs crows.
    Corvuscorva Nightfire smiles..but those are words for "groups of birds"
    Corvuscorva Nightfire: not "patterns of birds."
    Storm Nordwind: yes.
    Storm Nordwind: exactly
    Eden Haiku: Carrier-pigeons were let out from many different roofs by some piegonman and were flying, circling in patterns on rooftops.
    Storm Nordwind: "a wedge of geese" for geese flying in formation
    Corvuscorva Nightfire: yes!@
    Corvuscorva Nightfire: nods...
    Storm Nordwind: also for swans
    Corvuscorva Nightfire: but what blackbirds do for patterns is different than "a wedge"
    Eden Haiku: It lasted for 3 hours, it was amazing. So beautiful to watch the birds catching the light, each group merging into the other and then separating again..

    2010.06.28 13:00 - Clothe your Personality

    Wol Euler: some clothes require you to be in a strong mood to wear them
    Wol Euler: there are others that enable you to be strong when you wear them
    Wol Euler: I had an overcoat in RL many years ago that was like that
    Bleu Oleander: and some no matter how strong you feel don't feel good
    Calvino Rabeni: Hmmm, I don't see the pajama sleep outfit in that collection :)
    Wol Euler: I loved wearing it, it made me feel like royalty or some kind of warrior aristocrat
    Wol Euler: and I realized eventually that it was because it enforced a particular posture
    Bleu Oleander: over basic clothing needs, attitude pulls off fashion
    Wol Euler: the weight and balance of it pulled my shoulders back, made me stand straighter :)

    2010.06.28 19:00 - Restful at the Pavilion

    SophiaSharon Larnia: Ive taken the pictures from the exhibit and put them together in one picture
    however ive scaled, beveled, and shadowed it a bit, so i hope no one minds, i want to put it in the chronicle
    Paradise Tennant: nice idea
    SophiaSharon Larnia: I just hope no one minds it, i wouldnt want to interfere with someones sense of artist integrity
    Paradise Tennant: I doubt there will be worries on that score
    SophiaSharon Larnia: I like to play with things like that while resting in the evenings
    its sort of like a meditation
    SophiaSharon Larnia: the fun thing i noticed about the picture i made
    Paradise Tennant: smiles
    SophiaSharon Larnia: is the photos are in alphabetical order
    Paradise Tennant: ah :)
    SophiaSharon Larnia: by guardian first name
    Paradise Tennant: nice !
    SophiaSharon Larnia: and they all seem to fit with very little rearranging needed for composition
    Paradise Tennant: hmm
    SophiaSharon Larnia: color. shape etc
    Paradise Tennant: we are threads in a picture :) called life
    Paradise Tennant: smiles at you :)
    SophiaSharon nods :D
    SophiaSharon smiles back


    2010.06.29 07:00 - silence and dropping the kids

    Gaya Ethaniel: Is the school on a summer break now Lucinda?
    Lucinda Lavender: My regular one is...but as of last week I have started working in a drop in program 10-2.
    Gaya Ethaniel: ah
    Lucinda Lavender: some days we have 35 children in one room
    Lucinda Lavender: this is very challenging...
    Lucinda Lavender: they do well tho
    Gaya Ethaniel: ack ... what age group?
    Lucinda Lavender: 2-5
    Gaya Ethaniel: :)
    Gaya Ethaniel thinks Lucinda is a super woman ... :)
    Lucinda Lavender: I guess I need a cape
    Gaya Ethaniel: lol
    Lucinda Lavender: my sense of what is hard changes
    Lucinda Lavender: sometimes this and sometimes that
    Gaya Ethaniel: Do you mean depending on children or ... ?
    Lucinda Lavender: yes some have a harder time..
    Lucinda Lavender: we travel to large motor play on a rope...one very long rope
    Lucinda Lavender: and sing the same song each time
    Lucinda Lavender: this is hard for me
    Lucinda Lavender: as I am more spontaneous
    Gaya Ethaniel: It's an activity?
    Lucinda Lavender: it is just how you distract children from misbehavior in part
    Lucinda Lavender: and keep them focussed
    Gaya Ethaniel: ah ... even dealing with distractions are such a fun activity :)
    Gaya Ethaniel: I hope no one falls off the rope.
    Lucinda Lavender: structure is useful
    Lucinda Lavender: not too many:)
    Gaya Ethaniel: :)
    Corvuscorva Nightfire: nods..more children, more structure?
    Lucinda Lavender: if I keep a sense of flow I do not shut down as much
    Lucinda Lavender: yes Corvuscorva
    Lucinda Lavender: it can seem overwhelming
    Corvuscorva Nightfire: nods.
    Lucinda Lavender: it makes 90 sec of silence like medicine


    2010.06.29 13:00 - 'Life's a Bowl of Cherries'

    Calvino Rabeni: So even the World Cup has the same degree of philosophical interest as Logging, I'd say
    Qt Core: never took color as a simmetry parameter, but as most knows as a male i'm almost colorblind ;-)
    Wol Euler makes the sign of the cross.
    Agatha Macbeth heads the cross into the net
    Agatha Macbeth: :)
    Wol Euler: heh
    Agatha Macbeth: Jesus was not amused...
    Qt Core: the day after we got out of the world cup was a funny and angering day
    Agatha Macbeth: Same here!
    Qt Core: funny seeing all those people going around with a broken heart about 22 people in shorts and angering as there are much more serious things to feel like that about

    (Italy had 22 players??  Offensive and Defensive unit maybe :p)

    Wol Euler nods.
    Agatha Macbeth: Saves them going on about your PM anyway
    Qt Core: i obviously would have liked another result, but to be honest we knew since many months we would be bad (maybe not so bad)
    Calvino Rabeni: Some people are interested in sports and philosophy - probably a very small population, I might guess
    Agatha Macbeth: Much the same with our lot
    Calvino Rabeni: since they are regarded as non-overlapping subjects
    Wol Euler: wasn't Freddie Ayer a great football fan?
    Agatha Macbeth: Well you often need to be philosophical where England are concerned ;-)
    Wol Euler: and Albert Camus was goalkeeper for the Oran team
    Agatha Macbeth: He was?
    Wol Euler: mmhmm
    Agatha Macbeth: Must have missed that

    2010.06.29 19:00 - Joy and Pain

    stevenaia Michinaga: are you clear of the demonstrations Paradise?
    Paradise Tennant: thankfully yes
    Paradise Tennant: was a very unpleasant weekend
    stevenaia Michinaga: so it appeared
    Paradise Tennant: dog would not go more than 50 feet outside the front door.. he could smell crazy in the air/ we stayed in .. ate canned soup and crackers :) read .. :) meditated on peaceful themes :)
    stevenaia Michinaga: you and dog?
    Paradise Tennant: but awful to hear the shouting .. the sirens running all night so many tense police everywhere
    Paradise Tennant: smiles yes, apparently paned glass was very big in crowd disfavour there is very little left of it ... up and down bay street/ was unsettling to see even my corner store 's window's boarded up for seige
    Stevenaia Michinaga: wonders what the point of it all was?
    Paradise Tennant: hmm does violence have a real point
    Eos Amaterasu: those who feel they do not have a voice use their arms and legs
    stevenaia Michinaga: against glass
    Eos Amaterasu : kind of like a baby
    Paradise Tennant: smiles a very cranky one :)
    Eos Amaterasu: it takes a kind of genius to mobilize effective (especially, non-violent) action (not so much "peace" as truth-force: satyagraha)
    Paradise Tennant: smiles at eos
    Eos Amaterasu: patient action as a potent weapon: rare
    Paradise Tennant: like that term truth force ..satyagraha :) if pila were here the link woudl be up already
    Eos Amaterasu: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Satyagraha
    Eos Amaterasu: meeting the pain of things as they are with some steady connection with your deep pain

    2010.06.30 13:00 - Aspect of Self Through Avatar

    Calvino Rabeni: sartre, I know you and yaku have attended many philosophy discussions in SL
    Fefonz Quan: ok good to see youy then :)
    Calvino Rabeni: I wonder if you can help me appreciate their value a bit more than I do
    Sartre Placebo: the value of the discussions ?
    Calvino Rabeni: as the ones I have attended - I'm not really sure why I would go to them
    Calvino Rabeni: Yes, the discussions are not very easy to learn from, for me
    Calvino Rabeni: and I think, mainly arguments, if you know what I mean
    Sartre Placebo: actually, you see the ppl whom are able to discuss the topics and you see those who can´t
    Calvino Rabeni: and not too good at sticking to the topic :)
    Sartre Placebo: i consider myself not able to discuss those philosophical topics well
    Calvino Rabeni: - enough said I hope, since I don't like to criticize
    Fefonz Quan: argument can be useful, if done with good manners

    You know, I've read the following before but somehow today read it more slowly and was struck 'anew.'

    Thank you Steve!   

     2010.06.30 19:00 - Topics Arising

    stevenaia Michinaga: has anyone explained to you about our 90 second pauses?
    Dream Wrexan: yes, I'm familiar with them
    Dream Wrexan: sometimes in mid-thought I don't realize the time has started and still "send"
    stevenaia Michinaga: I veiw them are as a sort of mental rince cycle
    Dream Wrexan: yes, time to think is so precious
    stevenaia Michinaga: nice to see what shines through after
    Dream Wrexan: the environment is so visually stimulating
    stevenaia Michinaga: see what comes out in the wash

    stevenaia Michinaga: the time that was most profound was with another friend here Adams, who
    interviewed me for the "Chronicles" on the Wiki, so it was convenient to find....

    stevenaia Michinaga: I will copy/paste, it was from July 2008

    Adams Rubble: when we were discussing Being and you told about a dream (I think) about
    coming out of the water and seeing clearly...do you remember that?
    stevenaia Michinaga: in this moment I was underwater which represented Self to me
    stevenaia Michinaga: the I emerged above the surface , springing out of the water straight up which represented Being
    stevenaia Michinaga: not flying, just head above water
    stevenaia Michinaga: an interested contrast
    Pia Iger: then how do you feel, in each case, under and above the water?
    stevenaia Michinaga: stevenaia Michinaga: fresh air, clear sight of distance
    Adams Rubble: :)
    stevenaia Michinaga: under water was self reflective and somewhat contained.. defining self as somewhat introspective and contained
    stevenaia Michinaga: but head above water was externally focused
    stevenaia Michinaga: refreshing
