    The guardian at this meeting was Pema Pera and the comments are his.  

    At 1 am SL time, I visited the tea house. During the half hour I was there, nobody else showed up. This was not suprising, since until today we only had three sessions each day, at 7 am, 1 pm, and 7 pm SLT. However, since I had now arrived in Japan, it was easy for me to take up the night shift, and be present at 1 am as well. It also meant that I would be asleep at 1 pm SLT, but fortunately our new group of seven guardians had volunteered to be present in a rotating shift at 1 pm.

    This night was the first time I came at 1 am. Being by myself, I had some quite time to reflect on the fact that every six hours something will be happening at the tea house from now on. I was happy and grateful for this development. My central thrust with the Play as Being initiative had been to promote continuity and integration, and having a place to meet friends whenever one wants, within six hours, was a beautiful implementation of that idea.

    I was also dreaming about the future. One day, hopefully not too far into the future, I could see a permanent presence here, like in a neighborhood cafe in a city neighborhood that doesn’t sleep, where you can drop by and always find food and friends. Wouldn’t that be nice! Perhaps we can realize that within a few months? Let’s see how it all develops.
