    Hotaru was the Guardian, the comments are Pema's.


    This morning in Rieul I had asked Hotaru to take my place, to which she had gracefully agreed. She met Maxine near the tea house.

    Maxine Walden: hi, Hotaru
    Hotaru Myoo: Hi Maxine!
    Hotaru Myoo: How are you this morning?
    Maxine Walden: nice to see you; love your Kimono
    Maxine Walden: I am fine and your?
    Hotaru Myoo: I am manning the fort for Pema this round
    Maxine Walden: I see
    Hotaru Myoo: Not sure I know what I’m doing..
    Hotaru Myoo: haha
    Maxine Walden: I know what you mean, have had that feeling as well when being the guardian
    Hotaru Myoo: I work at a tea house in Kyoto
    Hotaru Myoo: the GION project
    Hotaru Myoo: run by 里春さんねーさん Nakamura
    Maxine Walden: do you, how interesting…please tell me what the GION project is;
    Maxine Walden: I do not know Japanese
    Hotaru Myoo: I can give you a website
    Maxine Walden: very nice, thank you
    Hotaru Myoo: that is her name 里春さんねーさん
    Maxine Walden: is that the name of the website?
    Hotaru Myoo: GION Project

    Hotaru explained more about the GION project tea house.

    Hotaru Myoo: I will find the URL soon
    Maxine Walden: oh, yes, thank you.
    Maxine Walden: while it is lovely out here, I might like to go inside the teahouse, a little more meditative for me
    Hotaru Myoo: sorry
    Hotaru Myoo: I cant send it this moment
    Hotaru Myoo: sl
    Hotaru Myoo: I think this card has it on it
    Maxine Walden: ah, yes, thanks, an apprentice Geisha in Kyoto…interesting, what does that mean that you do?
    Maxine Walden: guess I am having trouble getting comfortable sitting on this cushion, but I think that I am settled
    Maxine Walden: the natural sounds amidst this soothing atmosphere are so nice
    Hotaru Myoo: yes it really is
    Hotaru Myoo: is
    Maxine Walden: thank you
    Hotaru Myoo: it is open every day 7-8:30 sl
    Hotaru Myoo: open to all
    Hotaru Myoo: good conversation
    Maxine Walden: very nice…very nice
    Maxine Walden accepted your inventory offer.
    Maxine Walden: oh, from the landmark picture the teahouse looks very nice, large too
    Hotaru Myoo: the best in sl
    Maxine Walden: oh, the best! Have you been in sl for a long time? Sounds as if you have
    Hotaru Myoo: not really
    Hotaru Myoo: since october
    Hotaru Myoo: you since march?

    The conversation switched to the PaB explorations.

    Hotaru Myoo: how did you get involved with the playing as being project?
    Hotaru Myoo: how is it strange for you?
    Maxine Walden: Time ceases to have the sense as in RL, for instance I find that time seems to have very little meaning in sl, during these playasbeing times
    Maxine Walden: the experiences seems to be beyond my RL sense of time
    Maxine Walden: your interest in playasbeing?
    Hotaru Myoo: sorry Maxine
    Hotaru Myoo: I am in class with students
    Maxine Walden: This has been a lovely, gentle time here, and lovely to talk with you; I will be leaving in a moment
    Hotaru Myoo: you are welcome to come to the tea house
    Hotaru Myoo: I will be going there in a few minutes myself
    Hotaru Myoo: If you are interested
    Maxine Walden: oh, you must be very busy to try to do both these things at once.yes, I will come to the tea house but perhaps not just now. Thanks for asking me
    Hotaru Myoo: I’ll send you a tp
    Hotaru Myoo: sure
    Maxine Walden: thanks, maybe another time
    Hotaru Myoo: we were talkingabout PaB
    Hotaru Myoo: I have a very philosophical outlook on life
    Hotaru Myoo: but is is based in a spiritual context
    Hotaru Myoo: so this is an exciting way for me to sift through intellectually what I am doing/thinking/praying
    Hotaru Myoo: at any given moment
    Hotaru Myoo: have you engaged in any of the practice?
    Maxine Walden: yes, I can see that this sl experience might aid in that. Oh, yes, I am actively practicing the PaB, since I met Pema in March
    Hotaru Myoo: it is a great reality check
    Maxine Walden: yes, it is
    Hotaru Myoo: kewl
    Hotaru Myoo: tell me about your experience
    Maxine Walden: I have found that since i began the practice that my sense of being is wider, calmer, more gently focused, and that it carries on for me in RL beyond the 9 sec/15 min experience
    Maxine Walden: Hotaru, think I need to go. Will see you again soon, I hope
    Maxine Walden: bye for now.
    Hotaru Myoo: k
    Hotaru Myoo: thanks Maxine!
    Hotaru Myoo: I appreciate you coming
    Hotaru Myoo: I know Pema does too!
    Hotaru Myoo: cu!
    Hotaru Myoo: take care
