    Stargate Tone: no we have not met

    Pema Pera: hahaha
    Stim Morane: an interesting effect … I think I’ll stick to the regular zabutans
    Pema Pera: Dakini and I look like your parents now
    Stargate Tone: …didn’t feel well that Stim was behind…
    Stim Morane: yes I appreciate your gesture
    Stargate Tone: well…that’s good or bad thing ?
    Dakini Rhode: seeing regular avs on those tinie cushions is so funny
    Stargate Tone: ok
    Stim Morane: it’s not that I didn’t like sitting next to you. But I just spent the afternoon sitting at the monastery here, and am happy to stretch

    Rowan Masala: and I lost power and had to grab my cord
    Dakini Rhode: lol apparently

    stevenaia Michinaga: in SL
    Stargate Tone: and on the next level is all does not go easy
    Rowan Masala: on the Rezzable sims, if nowhere else
    Dakini Rhode: this is a teahouse, and in the traditional Japanese style, has a little enclosure for flowers and a scroll
    Stargate Tone: also pierre has builded heaven in SL; that’s an office…
    Rowan Masala nods
    Stargate Tone: You all know each other before ?
    Pema Pera: all of us have met here before in this tea house, yes
    stevenaia Michinaga: we have all been here more than once
    Pema Pera: Steve has been here many times, and Mongo too
    Pema Pera: Rowan came recently
    Pema Pera: Stargate has been here a few times too
    Dakini Rhode: and it seems i am just now arriving here…

    Stargate had notice Steve’s group name “Yogi”

    Stargate Tone: U steve have the title Yogi; U create the cool wind ?
    stevenaia Michinaga: no I am a novice yoga student
    Stargate Tone: U sure ?
    stevenaia Michinaga: there is much I can;t do, so yes
    Stargate Tone: well…there’s much to all that one cannot do…
    stevenaia Michinaga: I may be a student for a long time
    Stargate Tone: in case U take Urself to be one
    Stargate Tone: then it is yes
    Stargate Tone: I’ve read ‘few’ books…well…tried to read
    Stargate Tone: thinking they are much wiser than what I know
    Stargate Tone: read few pages and throwed them to wall …
    Stargate Tone: cuz I got so much pain from them…
    stevenaia Michinaga: I take classes , watch the impossible things the instructor does
    Dakini Rhode: hmm only one book i did that with
    Dakini Rhode: it had a lesson i needed to learn
    Stargate Tone: oh
    stevenaia Michinaga: not sure yoga is something you read about and get muchout of
    Stargate Tone: all of them books had that lesson to me….
    Dakini Rhode: :-)
    Stargate Tone: may I tell what was that lesson ?
    Stargate Tone: it was even ‘repeating’ lesson to me…
    Stargate Tone: this;
    Stargate Tone: never read that way
    Dakini Rhode: what way is that?
    Stargate Tone: as I read them books lifiting them against my chest…
    Stargate Tone: had “known” for long time before I tried to read them books
    Stargate Tone: that I must not brake my inner circles knowledge
    Dakini Rhode: why did you want to throw the books?
    Stargate Tone: thionking that some book could hold more *
    Dakini Rhode: so you were angry with yourself then?
    Stargate Tone: they were so black and white or worshipping only one thing
    Stargate Tone: one was warshipping the writer himself
    Stargate Tone: like there’s this Dt.Turi
    Dakini Rhode: are you looking for something to worship?
    Stargate Tone: who tells choct to chost castings things that shall happen
    Stargate Tone: no
    Stargate Tone: I dont worship but Life itself
    Stargate Tone: but…was to say, that for example that Dr. Turi is always right
    Stargate Tone: he always tells the truth
    Stargate Tone: yet
    Stargate Tone: he also do preast that only his ‘method’ is the way to save oneself
    Stargate Tone: and that’s no truth
    Stargate Tone: there’s almost as many ways to live the best life than there’s persons….
    Stargate Tone: cuz each life is unic
    Stargate Tone: but nobody needs to hear me :)****
    Stargate Tone: I’m just one person *
    Stargate Tone: sometimes very talkeable :)*
    Stargate Tone: but…Pema; U’ve never told anything about Urself….
    Stargate Tone: would like to hear….
    Dakini Rhode: are you kidding, Pema tells all about himself
    Pema Pera: hahaha
    Dakini Rhode: in his blog :-)

    Touche! :>)

    Stargate Tone: I’ve never heared
    Stargate Tone: ok
    Stargate Tone: …have not much time to read…
    Dakini Rhode: Lots to read there, but don’t throw it on the wall coputer mighte break
    Pema Pera: I’m an astronomer from Holland, living in New York, but actually now in Tokyo . . . a bit confusing
    Dakini Rhode: sorry about spelling, bad connection
    Pema Pera: Talking about books and reading, Rowan, I like the two quotes in your profile, but I don’t know Suzanne Vega — who is she?
    Pema Pera: I mentioned your Klee quote the other day
    Pema Pera: about the unborn
    Rowan Masala: she’s a musician
    Rowan Masala: the quote is from a song she did in the late 80’s
    Rowan Masala: and I honestly haven’t followed her since then, but that one kept coming to mind in relation to SL
    Pema Pera: The quote reminded me of a song by George Moustaki
    Pema Pera: Greek singer living in France
    Pema Pera: of a song by him in the early seventies “Le Temps de Vivre”
    Stargate Tone: well; that tells huge much of our kind of ppls life…
    Pema Pera: in which he talked about two lovers who are together “sans projets et sans habitudes” — without projects and without habits
    Rowan Masala: ohh–what a lovely image
    Rowan Masala: I wonder if it can be that way
    Rowan Masala: no agendas
    Rowan Masala: just life together
    Pema Pera: “nous pouvons rever notre vie” — we can dream our life, was the next part
    Stargate Tone: many ppl do that ‘agenda’…
    Pema Pera: yes, no agendas
    Rowan Masala: mmm
    Pema Pera: in the song it was possible, yes :-)

    We continued talking about songs and agendas.

    Rowan Masala: will have to look him up
    Stargate Tone: just to live one’s ‘own’ life…
    Stargate Tone: meaning, that all of the ppl do not need to be aware of one’s ‘agenda’…
    Stargate Tone: I believe I’d use the word ‘mission’
    Rowan Masala: Pema, are you in Tokyo for a visit, or living there?
    Stargate Tone: as I’m not still clear of the word ‘agenda’…
    Pema Pera: in between, Rowan
    Pema Pera: repeat visitor :-)
    Rowan Masala smiles
    Pema Pera: agenda means plans to do things
    Pema Pera: projects to carry out
    Stargate Tone: …think I learned now more also of the expression ’smiles’
    Stargate Tone: ok
    Rowan Masala smiles at Stargate
    Stargate Tone: well; is this agenda; to do what one’s heart do call to do ?
    Rowan Masala: no–agenda is typically used in a more negative way
    Stargate Tone: ok
    Rowan Masala: sort of forced, or artificial
    Stargate Tone: that’s why I feel that word to be bad…
    Rowan Masala nods
    Stargate Tone: but …like I learned more of ’smiles’
    Stargate Tone: I also learned much much of the word ‘agenda’
    stevenaia Michinaga: where are you from Stargate?
    Stargate Tone: You here are very good teachers *
    Stargate Tone: Finland
    Pema Pera: Rowan, here is the full text: Nous prendrons le temps de vivre D’être libres mon amour Sans projets et sans habitudes Nous pourrons rêver notre vie R Viens, je suis là, je n’attends que toi Tout est possible, tout est permis 2 Vi ens, écoute, les mots qui vibrent Sur les murs du mois de mai Ils te disent la certitude Que tout peut changer un jour 3 Nous prendrons le temps de vivre D’être libres mon amour…

    Dakini was about to leave.

    Dakini Rhode: Folks, please excuse me

    Rowan Masala smiles
    Pema Pera: thank you Steve, and All, for coming here!
    Stargate Tone: thank You Pema for Ur time again *
    Rowan Masala: thank you–I’ll look up the song
    Pema Pera: yw!
    stevenaia Michinaga: nice meeting you Stargate
    Pema Pera: Do you speak/read French, Rowan, by any chance?
    Rowan Masala: badly
    Rowan Masala: only what I remember from 20 years ago
    Pema Pera: Well, here is the rough translation
    Rowan Masala: but was able to get some sense of the lyrics

    Without any claim for accuracy, I attempted a quick sketch of a translation.

    Pema Pera: We can take our time to live, to be free, my love ; without projects and habits we can dream our lives ;
    Rowan Masala smiles
    Pema Pera: Come, here I am, I am not paying attention to anyone but you ; anything is possible anything is permitted
    stevenaia Michinaga: enjoy your lunch Pema, always a pleasure
    Pema Pera: sorry, lots of lag while typing
    Pema Pera: well, that was the first half — lovely song
    Rowan Masala: yes!
    Rowan Masala: can’t wait to hear it
    Stargate Tone: very lovely yes *
    Pema Pera: okay, take care everyone
    Pema Pera: good seeing y’all!
    Pema Pera: bye * !
    Stargate Tone: Have Good Time Pema
    Rowan Masala: good day, Pema
    stevenaia Michinaga: ouch
    Pema Pera: SL acting up
    Stargate Tone: yes
    Pema Pera: incredible lag oh well
    Pema Pera: c u !
    Stargate Tone: **

    Steve’s exclamation was triggered be me flying prematurely against a beam in the room :-). I then made it out safely, and was on my way.
