    Adams stood in as the replacement guardian for the afternoon session. She later sent me the following log with her comments. The title is hers too.

    When I arrived Dolma was already there.

    Adams Rubble: hello Dolma
    Adams Rubble: Are you here for the meeting?

    Dolma, she said nothing. I tried moving from cushion to cushion. But she said nothing.
    I tried a dance routine. But she said nothing. So I sat for awhile. After about five minutes I tried singing.

    Adams Rubble: Oh When the Saints
    Adams Rubble: Come marching in
    Adams Rubble: Oh when the saints come marching in
    Adams Rubble: Oh I want to be in their number
    Adams Rubble: When the Saints come marching in
    Adams Rubble: ta da de da
    Adams Rubble: toodle de do de da
    Adams Rubble: bop bop bu bop

    Still she said nothing and I continued to get sillier

    Adams Rubble: P-a-B-ing…..
    Adams Rubble: On a Wednesday afterno-o-on
    Adams Rubble: P-a-B-ing….
    Adams Rubble: Late in the month of Ju-u-ne

    Adams Rubble: to do some serious play-ay-ing
    Adams Rubble: Thinkin ’bout Be-eee-ing
    Adams Rubble: and meetin real good peeee-ople toooooo

    Still she said nothing.

    Adams Rubble: bop bop be bop
    Adams Rubble: When you walk through a storm
    Adams Rubble: Keep your head up high
    Adams Rubble: and don’t be afraid of the dark
    Adams Rubble: at the end of the storrrrrrm
    Adams Rubble: is a golden sky
    Adams Rubble: and the sweet silver song of the lark
    Adams Rubble: hmmmmm forgot the rest
    Adams Rubble: ta da daaaaaaaaa. Oh yes
    Adams Rubble: Walk on, walk on
    Adams Rubble: with hope in your heart
    Adams Rubble: and you’ll never walk alonnnnnnne
    Adams Rubble: you’ll ne-ver walk alonnnnnnnne
    Adams Rubble is wondering where everyone is and whether Dolma is meditating

    More silence…….until Fael and Neela arrive

    Adams Rubble: Ah, Hi Fael
    Fael Illyar is Offline
    Adams Rubble: Whooops
    Fael Illyar is Online
    Adams Rubble: Ahhhhh, Hi Fael
    Fael Illyar: Hi :)
    Adams Rubble is glad Fael has reappeared
    Fael Illyar: looks like I crashed
    Adams Rubble: yes
    Adams Rubble: Dolma must be meditating; hasn’t said a word
    Adams Rubble: Hi Neela
    Fael Illyar: Hello Neela
    Neela Blaisdale: Hello Adam and Fael
    Neela Blaisdale: Hello
    Adams Rubble: Good to see you both
    Adams Rubble: I’ve run out of songs to sing

    Neela’s AV does a slight jerk to the left and then shoots off to the right, right off the pavilion….

    Adams Rubble: Whoa
    Adams Rubble: Did Neela fall in the moat?
    Fael Illyar: I’ve somehow been noticing the meetings around 10 minutes after the start today
    Neela Blaisdale: Yes hating computer lag,hard to walk
    Adams Rubble: I know that feeling well Neela
    Adams Rubble: I’m always falling off of bridges
    Adams Rubble: :)
    Neela Blaisdale: I falll all the time
    Faenik: なるほど^^
    Adams Rubble: A little lag at the wrong time…and SPLASH!!!
    Fael Illyar: how bad performance does it take to fall off?
    Fael Illyar: ah, unexpected lag
    Adams Rubble: overcompensating
    Neela Blaisdale: Yup. Interestingly I’m having computer trouble in RL as well
    Fael Illyar: since we have no roof, I prefer landing in here instead of next to :)
    Fael Illyar: Well, suits my AV better too :)
    Neela Blaisdale: Makes sense
    Adams Rubble: We should set a landmark on the table
    Neela Blaisdale: Great idea
    Adams Rubble: haha

    We all jump up on the table and set landmarks…

    Neela Blaisdale: I have to back towork in RL see you later
    Adams Rubble: OK neela :)
    Fael Illyar: ok, see you Neela :)
    Adams Rubble: bye

    Neela departs and Fael and I begin to discuss time

    Fael Illyar: This weeks meetings have mostly been quite small for some reason
    Adams Rubble: Yes, I’ve been noticing that
    Adams Rubble: This is going to be a strange log today…anyway so far
    Fael Illyar: Did anything happen before I came?
    Adams Rubble: Just me singing
    Fael Illyar should’ve set an alarm.

    I am not sure whether Fael is referring to my behavior or an alarm clock but I assume the latter

    Adams Rubble: Brnnnnnnnnnnnnnnng
    Fael Illyar: Well, I have those but … hmmh, maybe I’m not doing them properly today
    Adams Rubble: You mean the stops?
    Fael Illyar: yes
    Adams Rubble: I think I did three
    Adams Rubble: I’m way off everything today
    Fael Illyar: I usually notice the meeting start at the stop at the latest
    Fael Illyar: today I’ve been noticing 10 minutes after one :)
    Adams Rubble: :)
    Fael Illyar: strange :)
    Fael Illyar: even stranger that you’re having similar problems
    Adams Rubble: When I get off my schedule, sometimes I have difficulty catching up
    Adams Rubble: It has been happending since I started PaB
    Fael Illyar: ah, not just today then
    Adams Rubble: No a few times
    Adams Rubble: There isn’t enough time in the day anymore
    Fael Illyar: not so weird then :)
    Adams Rubble: No
    Adams Rubble: I have to go in a few minutes
    Fael Illyar: I was expecting that :)
    Faenik: ah :)
    Adams Rubble: We ought to say something PaBish
    Fael Illyar: oh yes, I could mention the first several lines long piece of text I got during a PaB today
    Adams Rubble: oh?
    Fael Illyar: I had a bit of trouble putting it to words though :)
    Adams Rubble: :)
    Adams Rubble just choked on the water she was drinking
    Fael Illyar: a dream from which Being is awakening. Us puppets are discovering we’re just parts of the dream and that’s the process with which the dream ends. Until everyone reaches “nirvana”, Being is not fully awake.
    Adams Rubble: Oh Fael, now the meeting is official
    Adams Rubble: Very nice!
    Fael Illyar: First time I remembered to write something down
    Adams Rubble: It sometimes comes in handy
    Adams Rubble: :)
    Adams Rubble: I like your tag “I am not”

    Fael’s tag said “I am not Fael Illyar”

    Fael Illyar: :)
    Adams Rubble: That could have been a topic for discussion
    Adams Rubble: Are you Fael Illyar or not
    Fael Illyar: no time for that anymore :)
    Adams Rubble: ?
    Adams Rubble: haha
    Adams Rubble: yes I better go
    Fael Illyar: It’s a seeming paradox so I like to use it sometimes :)
    Fael Illyar: Ok, See you later :)
    Adams Rubble: bye Fael :)
    Adams Rubble: I’ll send the log
    Fael Illyar: Yes, no point staying here anymore I guess.
    Adams Rubble: No, I don’t think so. Dolma is doing something else
    Fael Illyar: Bye Dolma
    Adams Rubble: bye Dolma
