    Birthday Celebrations:

    Pema attended every session in the week preceding April 1, the first anniversary of Play as Being. In the four sessions of April 1, the most common sentiment felt was he appreciation for Play as Being, its founder and the fellow participants.

    In the 01:00 am, the first of four sessions of the second year the following avatars listened to Pema discuss the early days: Pema, Adelene,Tarmel, Wol, Gaya, Fael, Susi and Stargate.

    The second session of the day, the 07:00 session was exactly one year from the first ever sesssion. Attending were Wol, Susi, Fefonz, Riddle, Pema, SophiaSharon, Stargate, Maxine, Storm, Adams, Caledonia, Eliza, Genesis and Dakini. The Chronicles was presented to the group at this session. Storm broke out the virtual champaign and the onigokko was run a few times. There was recognition of contributions of various members. I wondered if there had ever been a session where so little was said but so much was felt.

    The third session of the day included, Myna, Genesis, Pema, Scathach, Pila, Wol, Arabella, Chiaiu, Shilv, Tarmel, Rain, Storm and Beevee. The first PaB retreat was introduced to the group in this session.

    The fourth session turned into a wild affair with simultaneous drinking of virtual absinth, onigokko and fireworks.

    Theme Sessions:

    There were a number of theme sessions in April. Stim and Pema contined to talk anout "appreciate the presence of appearance"; Eliza and Pema has a session on "faith, doubt, devotion, love". Pila and Corvi: moderated "a RL PaB retreat in Hawaii?". Fefonz and Pema led a session on "Being Seeing".

    "Pax et Bonum" ("Peace and the Good") was a seesion by Geo and Pema.

    Geo Netizen: The second part of the greeting -and good- reminds us of the source of all good.
    Geo Netizen: It is a wish for good things:
    Geo Netizen: that you experience the joy of a baby’s giggle,
    Geo Netizen: the beauty of a vibrant landscape,
    Geo Netizen: the warmth of a caring touch,
    Geo Netizen: the delights of breaking bread with friends.
    Geo Netizen: But more than just good things,
    Geo Netizen: good means a state of well-being,
    Geo Netizen: circling back to the beginning …
    Geo Netizen: a deep, clear, undisturbed lake.

    New Guardians:

    Aurel Miles, Eos Amaterasu, Gina Broono and Strannik Zipper! became guardians in April. Korii Tiger left the group. At the end of the month there were 61 guardians.


    For First Time, Guardians on Call (GOC) for Every Session:

    The original role of the guardians was to be present for one of the sessions to make sure someone was there to greet any newcomers. Orignally the duty was to stay a half hour but it soon became expected the sessions would last an hour (or more). Dakini Rhodes resumed a session beginning in late April and for the first time there was a guardian for each of the 28 sessions. Before that there had been people covering more than one session.

    Scribes: http://playasbeing.wik.is/PaB_Scribe_Project/2009/04

    Caledonia Heron, Solobill Laville, Storm Nordwind, Genesis Zhangsun, Wester Kiranov, Arisia Vita, Maxine Walden, Fefonz Quan, Corvuscorva Nightfire and Wol Euler were the scribes for April.
