    Xirana Oximoxi: yes... they are so creative!! I'm sure it will be a wonderful party!
    Xirana Oximoxi: yes... interesting experience.. to do a retreat here, in sl
    Eliza Madrigal: very new for us, and surely for me, but surprising in many ways
    Xirana Oximoxi: you stay all together in silence for a long time? a day? some hours?
    Eliza Madrigal: well, this one will be the most structured so far...
    Eliza Madrigal: and we'll pause generally for 10 - 15 minutes at a time I think...
    Eliza Madrigal: then share one - at - a - time
    Xirana Oximoxi: what's 'one - at- a- time- ?..
    Bleu Oleander: hi Eliza, Xirana
    Eliza Madrigal: What we'll share about will depend on many things I suppose... perhaps the theme settled on in the next few days...

    Bleu Oleander: how are you both?
    Xirana Oximoxi: I would like to hear about your expeience... after

    Eliza Madrigal: very timely for participating in the Art as Being exhibit if you like, too!

                              Xirana has been reading the:   Chronicles

    Xirana Oximoxi: I haven't had time Eliza... I've read a little of the Croniques.. ad that seemed to me that I must read slow
    Eliza Madrigal: mmm, nods
    Bleu Oleander: back
    Xirana Oximoxi: like a nice book... it is very well written
    Eliza Madrigal: wb Bleu :)
    Xirana Oximoxi: wb Bleu

    Eliza Madrigal: Yaku, you are a jet-setter now
    Yakuzza Lethecus: well, once a month :P
    Eliza Madrigal: you're becoming like Pema... we'll never know where you are....
    Bleu Oleander: tried to have a spam free conversation in your honor
    Eliza Madrigal: hahah Bleu, I loved the title of your log :)
    Bleu Oleander: came from Wol
    Yakuzza Lethecus: no i´ll guess i never become like that, but it´s even more convinient to have secondlife, travelling from sim to sim is more stressfull :)
    Eliza Madrigal: cute
    Eliza Madrigal: :) bi-locating is becoming stressful for you Ya?
    Yakuzza Lethecus: hehe, i like being there, but i don´t like the travelling in itself, the driving on the highway and alike


    Eliza Madrigal: oh wow Bleu... seeing your shirt! How wonderful
    Bleu Oleander: ty Eliza :))
    Yakuzza Lethecus: hey sun and stormbleu 3-23_001.jpg

    Eliza Madrigal: We're having a lovely time... discussing parties and retreats and art projects... and the details of Bleu's shirt :D
    Bleu Oleander: ha!
    Sunshine Vayandar: sounds funnn ;)
    Eliza Madrigal: so much to celebrate
    Sunshine Vayandar: hmm bleu is a cloud ;(
    Bleu Oleander: feels like I'm wearing PaB close to my heart :)
    Sunshine Vayandar: I wait a bit - may be you appear
    Storm Nordwind smiles
    Sunshine Vayandar: I did see your shirt Bleu ;)
    Xirana Oximoxi: I see her well.. Sun.. and sure, her shirt is very nice!
    Sunshine Vayandar: yes it's amazing
    Eliza Madrigal: if you have seen some of the time session chat logs , Bleu's shirt looks like the pictures she's been posting...
    Bleu Oleander: ty all :)
    Bleu Oleander: yes, actually used one of them to make the shirt
    Eliza Madrigal: little extra details make such a big difference :)

    Bleu Oleander: art helps me to "see"

    Sunshine Vayandar: yesterday I was talking to a friend here in SA
    Sunshine Vayandar: she is an artist - that came all the time to the cafe for years
    Sunshine Vayandar: and everytime she arrived she walked in with some amazing things she found on the road
    Sunshine Vayandar: seeds, leaves
    Sunshine Vayandar: and things people consider garbage
    Eliza Madrigal: :))
    Sunshine Vayandar: I told her that she taught me to see ;)
    Bleu Oleander: :))

    Eliza Madrigal: that's beautiful
    Sunshine Vayandar: yes she is great
    Xirana Oximoxi: yes, there's a book aso, tiltid.. the importance of small things.
    Eliza Madrigal: art sometimes causes that 'stop' moment... like 'before' there is a question, there is a space...
    Sunshine Vayandar: ;)
    Bleu Oleander: exactly Eliza
    Eliza Madrigal: guess that is the 'kire'
    Xirana Oximoxi: art also helps others to see.. at least for me:)

    Bleu Oleander: btw, Storm, Aph, Sun and Bruce are putting together a great weekend party .... had a "sneak" preview yesterday :)
    Sunshine Vayandar: ;)
    Eliza Madrigal: I've never been able to produce something that helped someone else see...
    Sunshine Vayandar: yes I just realised that I need a fireworks crew ;)
    Storm Nordwind has tentatively added a couple of new things this morning too.
    Eliza Madrigal: a whole crew? yikes... lots of fireworks :) hope they don't affect the balloon ride...
    Sunshine Vayandar: Storms thanks for all the hard work with the balloon and hud
    Bleu Oleander: so much talent and enthusiasm
    Xirana Oximoxi: when I see some works of art.. I like to get how the artist have 'seen'
    Xirana Oximoxi: brr.. so bad expresing it (me)
    Eliza Madrigal: not at all Xirana
    Eliza Madrigal: think that's 'it'
    Xirana Oximoxi: ty Eliza:)

    Storm Nordwind: I've added a laser just beyond the balloon this morning - out of the way - and a ... ahem ... surfboard ride (!) - but I can remove them if people don't want them there!
    Eliza Madrigal: like Sun says... a way of translating one's experience directly
    Eliza Madrigal: a laser?
    Bleu Oleander: surfboard ride?? sounds fun!
    Sunshine Vayandar: yay ;)
    Eliza Madrigal: can we shoot lasers from the balloon?
    Eliza Madrigal giggles
    Storm Nordwind: Remember the laser that used to be in BaikUn next to the molecule?
    Bleu Oleander: oh yes
    Eliza Madrigal: oooohhh
    Bleu Oleander: nice touch
    Eliza Madrigal nods
    Sunshine Vayandar: ;)
    Eliza Madrigal: :)))
    Storm Nordwind smacks Eliza over the head with a cushion
    Bleu Oleander: haha
    Xirana Oximoxi: hehe
    Eliza Madrigal: ack.... grabs and tosses...
    Eliza Madrigal: oops sorry Bleu
    Storm Nordwind: Ouch!
    Bleu Oleander: ducks
    Eliza Madrigal: you shouldn't have hit storm for it though

    Sunshine Vayandar: I like the way Storm says "and a ... ahem ... surfboard ride (!) "
    Bleu Oleander: do I need a new outfit for that?
    Eliza Madrigal: pab bikini?
    Bleu Oleander: hehe
    Xirana Oximoxi: :)
    Sunshine Vayandar: ;p
    Bleu Oleander: was thinking ....
    Storm Nordwind: Oh yes - something very "flowing" is best for the surfboard :)
    Bleu Oleander: PaB wetsuit
    Bleu Oleander: flowing I can do
    Eliza Madrigal: Bruce would look great in one of those... with Blub circling....
    Storm Nordwind chuckles
    Sunshine Vayandar: ;)
    Eliza Madrigal: really looking forward to all this... it takes all my resistence not to ride the balloon yet


    Storm Nordwind: I recommend getting the HUD early though.
    Bleu Oleander: ride is wonderful!
    Xirana Oximoxi: oh! I have done.. and it's a wonderful trip
    Sunshine Vayandar: I will have to do it again I think
    Sunshine Vayandar: may be with an elder ;)
    Bleu Oleander looks around for an elder :)
    Eliza Madrigal: :))
    Xirana Oximoxi: :))
    Sunshine Vayandar: oh sorry ;)
    Storm Nordwind just looks round
    Bleu Oleander: :)
    Eliza Madrigal giggles... Storm is a 'founder' which outranks elder...
    Storm Nordwind blushes
    Sunshine Vayandar: ;))
    Storm Nordwind: No ranks here
    Eliza Madrigal: 'person of no rank'
    Sunshine Vayandar: ;) hehe
    Yakuzza Lethecus: :)

    Eliza Madrigal: Hm, what about a foundational figure/contributor?
    Storm Nordwind: Except Mr. YOU_CANT_LEAVE_THAT_HERE! Storm ;)
    Sunshine Vayandar: :D
    Eliza Madrigal laughs and thanks Goodness for that
    Bleu Oleander: haha
    Storm Nordwind: (Boxy's box's days are numbered)
    Bleu Oleander: hehe
    Eliza Madrigal: :)
    Eliza Madrigal: Nice to have a 'whole' village
    Storm Nordwind nods
    Eliza Madrigal: room for so many things...
    Storm Nordwind: Still a few spaces left
    Eliza Madrigal: My meme's mantra: a place for everything and everything in its place

    Eliza Madrigal: Xirana, I'm not sure if you have taken a walk in the village... there are spots for each guardian....
    Bleu Oleander: aspires to that
    Xirana Oximoxi: I've begun to visit today.. with the baloon tour:)
    Xirana Oximoxi: I would love to visit all the place ..sure..
    Storm Nordwind: Ah - that was just the short hop over to the party site
    Storm Nordwind: Unless you did both
    Sunshine Vayandar: I have an African hut there - easy to see ;)
    Xirana Oximoxi: I've seen (don't remember where) that there is also a Museum!!!
    Sunshine Vayandar: hope u will come and drum ;)
    Bleu Oleander: some wonderful spaces in the village
    Eliza Madrigal: :) well I tell you because if you'd like to build or display or have a play place...
    Eliza Madrigal: Oh, yes... definitely wander the amazing museum
    Xirana Oximoxi: it was a short ride.. yes
    Eliza Madrigal: I live right next door and get there too seldom
    Eliza Madrigal: :)
    Xirana Oximoxi: :)

    Storm Nordwind: There's also a long ride around the village as a tour, and from the party site a long ride past the previous PaB session venues
    Bleu Oleander: walked back from the previous PaB venues .... very fun
    Xirana Oximoxi: at the moment I don't have time to learn to build :(.. sure it's fantastic to create your own things here
    Bleu Oleander: SL changed for me when I started building

    Eliza Madrigal: When Storm and Adams were working on the museum, the neatest thing was the model they made to play with in SL... something I'd not thought of before, but wow... virtual nesting :)
    Storm Nordwind chuckles
    Sunshine Vayandar: ;))
    Storm Nordwind: And Bleu became an addict for SL art!
    Bleu Oleander: yes!!
    Sunshine Vayandar: ã‹¡
    Eliza Madrigal smiles
    Xirana Oximoxi: welll now I'm an addict to visiting SL art:)
    Sunshine Vayandar: There is sooo much to see
    Eliza Madrigal: yes, I'm a professional appreciator of others' building... but once in a while I get an itch
    Eliza Madrigal: like now, to make a cave...
    Xirana Oximoxi: yes.. amazing how much things to see
    Sunshine Vayandar: ;p
    Eliza Madrigal: :))
    bleu 3-23_004.jpg
    Bleu Oleander: had to "drop" some of my household chores to make room for my sl art :)
    Storm Nordwind: Is the model of the museum still in the Museum's Great Hall?
    Sunshine Vayandar: what chores
    Eliza Madrigal: The last time I was there I don't remember seeing it, but that may have been due to an upcoming exhibit
    Storm Nordwind drags his camera through the museum
    Storm Nordwind: I think it has gone for now

    Eliza Madrigal: I actually love that about SL... that it helps one ask questions like 'just because it sounds wrong to drop something in RL for SL, does that make it true?"
    Bleu Oleander: :)
    Eliza Madrigal: sometimes one thing helps you drop something you should have already... like me asking the kids for more help
    Yakuzza Lethecus: that´s a deep philosophical question eliza :)
    Eliza Madrigal: Is it? :)
    Sunshine Vayandar: Liz ;))
    Eliza Madrigal can't tell anymore... giggles
    Eliza Madrigal: Hi Brian!
    Sunshine Vayandar: I have given up too hmm

    Bleu Oleander: hi Brian
    Yakuzza Lethecus: hey brian

    Brian Roop: ah shoot, I missed the deep philosophical question

    Sunshine Vayandar: hi Brian ;)
    Brian Roop: hi everyone
    Eliza Madrigal: did you bring one Brian?
    Xirana Oximoxi: hi Brian:)
    Brian Roop: no something was described as such just as I arrived

    Eliza Madrigal: our deep philosophical question was, that we questioned who would arrive next to bring the deep philosophical question...
    Xirana Oximoxi: ehehee
    Brian Roop: hmmmm
    Eliza Madrigal: :))
    Sunshine Vayandar: hehe
    Eliza Madrigal: not to put you on the spot or anything.... :::rolling:::

    Brian Roop: Am I because I think, or do i think at all?
    Bleu Oleander: thoughtful question
    Eliza Madrigal: hmm... question as art
    Sunshine Vayandar: ;)
    Xirana Oximoxi: descartes?
    Brian Roop: decartes in the mirror
    Xirana Oximoxi: :)
    Brian Roop: thoughts while he shaved


    Brian Roop wipes spray from t'shirt
    Eliza Madrigal: :) thanks everyone... nice timing for the pause....
    Eliza Madrigal: another way to phrase the question might be 'are we something other than the sum of our thoughts?'
    Eliza Madrigal: or is that a different question...

    Storm Nordwind: What happens when you have no thought? Do you no longer exist?

    Brian Roop: maybe that's what happens when people poof out
    Brian Roop: they stopped thinking
    Eliza Madrigal: or again... that place right '
    Xirana Oximoxi: maybe then you exixt... but you are not aware of it
    Brian Roop: but how would we know
    Brian Roop: they poofed out
    Eliza Madrigal: before the question... before the thought...
    Eliza Madrigal: there is liveliness there... seems....

    Storm Nordwind: Because it is possible to be aware without linear rational thought, or even thinking that you're thinking :)

    Bleu Oleander: how would you know you are aware without thinking?

    Sunshine Vayandar: Hmm I just looked down and saw the puppy sleeping hmm - how about animals ...
    Storm Nordwind: because awareness is what you are, not the thought
    Eliza Madrigal: hmm... in fact a 'thought' can seem to weigh or pull on the liveliness in some ways...
    Brian Roop: hmmmm
    Storm Nordwind: When you 'drop thought', what is left?
    Sunshine Vayandar: animals and everything else around us
    Bleu Oleander: how can you access awareness then?
    Xirana Oximoxi: when people do meditation, they try to keep the mind 'quiet' in silence'.. maybe then they are not thinking... but are aware of being anyway
    Storm Nordwind: In meditation Xirana - you can still be aware of thoughts that arise and pass away, but you can watch them go in and not get involved or identify with them
    Brian Roop: it's clear that dogs dream, they vocalize and move paws as if running
    Eliza Madrigal: definitely a difference between aware in an awake way, and just 'zoned' without thoughts, too...
    Brian Roop: what's their awareness?
    Xirana Oximoxi: I don't know... because my mind is always 'working' :)
    Eliza Madrigal: :))
    Sunshine Vayandar: yes Brian - he is sleeping now and waggling his tail ;)
    Brian Roop: hears serene friendly voices
    Xirana Oximoxi: interesting Storm
    Storm Nordwind: You become the 'silent watcher' of all these things that pass by :)

    Eliza Madrigal: yesterday I was in an office and on the cd player there was this wonderful classical piece of music (should have looked to see what it was) and I attended to listen without being 'directed' by it in a linear way... was fascinating

    Xirana Oximoxi: but.. to recognise these things that pass by'.. you must think, or not?

    Brian Roop: I think photography can be an interesting exercise in silent awareness
    Brian Roop: waiting for the moment to capture
    Eliza Madrigal: the music didn't go anywhere... in a way...
    Sunshine Vayandar: ;)
    Eliza Madrigal: oh, interesting Brian, yes...

    Storm Nordwind: No Xirana. You can of course, but then you generate new thought. You can watch them, be aware, let them arise and pass, with awareness not new thought

    Sunshine Vayandar remembers that the music session is in 5 minutes ;)
    Eliza Madrigal: :))
    Bleu Oleander looks for my drum
    Brian Roop: from experience i think it's zenlike
    Sunshine Vayandar: ;))
    Eliza Madrigal: I love a photo that surprises ... that you looked to capture one thing and it shows another seemingly of its own will... :D
    Xirana Oximoxi: ty for explanations Storm..I must 'think' about it... I won't let it 'pass by' !! :))
    Storm Nordwind chuckles
    Eliza Madrigal smiles
    Sunshine Vayandar: ;))
    Bleu Oleander: :)

    Sunshine Vayandar: Just to imagine that thoughts are clouds passing by - taught me to be much calmer ...
    Storm Nordwind: The sky is an amazing teacher :)
    Eliza Madrigal: :) mm
    Bleu Oleander: yes :)
    Xirana Oximoxi: it can be stormy too :))
    Bleu Oleander: and bleu
    Sunshine Vayandar: :))
    Eliza Madrigal: and make you clean up things...
    Eliza Madrigal giggles
    Xirana Oximoxi: yes! Bleu!!
    Storm Nordwind facepalms
    Bleu Oleander: sorry
    Storm Nordwind: hehe
    Bleu Oleander: :)


    Sunshine Vayandar: ;)
    Xirana Oximoxi: I must go now... thanks for this nice time and see you soon:)

    Bleu Oleander: just by reducing particles?
    Sunshine Vayandar: yes
    Sunshine Vayandar: brb I try again
    Bleu Oleander: nice
    Eliza Madrigal: back to the beginnings
    Eliza Madrigal laughs
    Bleu Oleander: hehe

    Eliza Madrigal: the egg is a good picture of the time puzzle... once cracked, cracked... or is it...
    Bleu Oleander: music is great in sl
    Eliza Madrigal: I seem to be preoccupied...
    Eliza Madrigal: maybe need to write my time report soon

    Eliza Madrigal: :)
    Sunshine Vayandar: yay I see you both!
    Bleu Oleander: oh me too
    Eliza Madrigal: woo hoo

    Eliza Madrigal: great, eh?
    Bleu Oleander: :)

    Eliza Madrigal: pavillion patterns proliferating
    Bleu Oleander: wearing all my friends :)
    Sunshine Vayandar: yes I never would have thought it was the Pavilion
    Eliza Madrigal smiles
    Eliza Madrigal: wearing us lightly
    Bleu Oleander: look close ... you're there
    Sunshine Vayandar: ;)
    Bleu Oleander: actually from a time session
    Eliza Madrigal is terrible with cam...haha...


    Sunshine Vayandar: There is a jazz musician here - who says - I am a sum total of all my influences
    Bleu Oleander: I like that
    Eliza Madrigal: oh wow yes I see! fantastic
    Bleu Oleander: part of my party outfit :)
    Sunshine Vayandar: ;))
    Sunshine Vayandar: so let me explain why I need a crew
    Sunshine Vayandar: for the fireworks
    Sunshine Vayandar: ohh bell hmm
    Eliza Madrigal ponders influences... how one can never get to bottom....
    Eliza Madrigal: give credit one place without not in another
    Sunshine Vayandar: I think I am a hollow bamboo
    Sunshine Vayandar: and all the influences pass through
    Eliza Madrigal: :)) open ended...?
    Eliza Madrigal: mmm
    Sunshine Vayandar: well not sure
    Bleu Oleander: more like a sponge sometimes

    Sunshine Vayandar: but imagine how it would be if we never met anyone
    Sunshine Vayandar: never experienced anything new
    Sunshine Vayandar: hmm yes a sponge ;)
    Eliza Madrigal: interesting...

    Eliza Madrigal: guess the closing comes when not able to see how fathomless the factors are... thinks 'i did this'
    Bleu Oleander: yes
    Sunshine Vayandar: hm?
    Eliza Madrigal: just me
    Eliza Madrigal: not much fun
    Sunshine Vayandar: yes one can't really say that
    Bleu Oleander: no "self" made beings
    Eliza Madrigal nods nods
    Eliza Madrigal: like music... far more fluid
    Sunshine Vayandar: so it is not easy to say - mine mine mine
    Bleu Oleander: so dynamic and interdependent
    Sunshine Vayandar: yes
    Eliza Madrigal: mmm, nods dynamic seems the word!
    Sunshine Vayandar: like a raga - never ending
    Sunshine Vayandar: or the river
    Sunshine Vayandar: or not?
    Eliza Madrigal: rolling...

    Sunshine Vayandar: I imagine it as if there is a universal knowledge
    Sunshine Vayandar: which includes everything
    Sunshine Vayandar: and each person has a bit of the same knowledge hmm
    Sunshine Vayandar: hmm how to say ...

    Bleu Oleander: everything made of the same elements in different configurations
