    Fael, Pia and Adams shared a substitute guardianship and Adams Rubble submitted the log. The comments are mine (Adams)

    When I arrived Fael was already there. We started with a bit of technical talk, with me asking questions. I learned about radars

    Adams Rubble: Hi Fael :)
    Fael Illyar: Hi adams
    Fael Illyar: Oh right, meeting is starting, I should stop trying tp elsewhere :P
    Fael Illyar: It's not working anyhow.
    Adams Rubble: :)
    Adams Rubble: I didn't realize that it was your meeting yesterday
    Faenik: why not?
    Fael Illyar: red mapped a moment ago and when I returned, I was right here :P
    Fael Illyar: and the sim I was in isn't found
    Adams Rubble: Hi Faenik. Yes I should have looked :)
    Adams Rubble: Hmmmm
    Faenik: Hi adams.
    Adams Rubble: I am just learning to use the maps
    Fael Illyar: could be the sim crashed :)
    Fael Illyar: a lot to learn
    Adams Rubble: yes, on all levels
    Dakini Rhode is Online
    Adams Rubble: Could it have been restricted land?
    Fael Illyar: a shop
    Adams Rubble: ahhh
    Pema Pera is Online
    Fael Illyar: heh, my radar picked up Pema before I got notification "Pema Pera is Online" :)
    Adams Rubble: :)
    Adams Rubble: good radar!
    Adams Rubble: I have one of those somewhere
    Fael Illyar: I use Mystitool
    Fael Illyar: I think I took you to the shop at some point
    Fael Illyar: did I?
    Adams Rubble: You used a radar at Bewitched
    Fael Illyar: ah, not that sort of radar :)
    Adams Rubble: didn't think so
    Adams Rubble: I don't remember the shop
    Fael Illyar: Mystical Cookie Designs?
    Adams Rubble: No, don't remember
    Fael Illyar: I guess I didn't take you there then. I might have given you a landmark then
    Adams Rubble: maybe, I have age as an excuse for bad memory :)
    Fael Illyar: when I showed you the sky platform
    Fael Illyar: Hi Pia
    Adams Rubble: Ah, I remember that :)
    Adams Rubble: the sky platform
    Fael Illyar: Mystitool is the device I used to create it
    Adams Rubble: Do you know who is guardiuan this morning?
    Adams Rubble: That is neat
    Fael Illyar: rajah
    Adams Rubble: Powerful tool then
    Fael Illyar: It's got quite a few functions
    Faenik: indeed?
    Fael Illyar: flight assistance, sky platforms, radar, gives a line when someone enters chat range ...
    Adams Rubble: the latter could be very important
    Fael Illyar: can be used to rez a posing stand or non physical vehicle
    Fael Illyar: or to stop all animation
    Adams Rubble: hmmm

    Pia Joined Us

    Adams Rubble: Hi Pia :)
    Faenik is a hairy black ball with eyes and ears.
    Fael Illyar: and when you collide with something, it tells you what it was and who owned it
    Adams Rubble: :)
    Adams Rubble: I usually just fall off bridges
    Fael Illyar: Well that's mostly useful with griefers so you know who it is that's throwing/shooting things at you
    Fael Illyar: and can AR them
    Adams Rubble: Ah, that's useful too
    Adams Rubble: AR?
    Pia Iger just listening
    Fael Illyar: Abuse Report
    Adams Rubble: ahhh, yes
    Adams Rubble: I am learning a bit more, Pia
    Fael Illyar: handy tool overall :)
    Adams Rubble: Yes, I can see

    Pia notices Faels title over her name

    Pia Iger: Fael, do you just make up all kinds of titles for yourself?
    Fael Illyar: no, those are from different groups I'm in

    I put on a title that says "Enlightened One", an embarassing misnomer

    Adams Rubble: This is my most untrue one :)
    Fael Illyar: :)
    Pia Iger: Hi, Doug,
    Adams Rubble: Hi Doug
    doug Sosa: hi, morning

    Fael put on a title that says "I am not". Doug joins us and tells us about his painting class

    Fael Illyar: this is my ... strangest one :)
    Fael Illyar: Hi Doug
    Pia Iger: coolest one, Fael.
    Adams Rubble: :)
    Fael Illyar: Ok, coolest one :)
    Adams Rubble: Zen
    Pia Iger: haven
    Fael Illyar: anyway, if you create a group or have sufficient priviledges in a group, you can create any title you wish
    Pia Iger: Haven't seen you for a while.Doug.
    doug Sosa: been traveling , and this weekend i am in a painting workshop. very good.
    Pia Iger: oil painting, or water color?
    Faenik: �る��^^
    doug Sosa: oil, outside in the forest.
    Pia Iger: real life painting, sounds good!
    doug Sosa: good teacher, one of the best in sonoma.
    doug Sosa: i love things like, don't look at what you paint, it will in secods stimulate the complementary color.
    Faenik: why not?
    Pia Iger: that is what he said?
    doug Sosa: among others.
    Pia Iger: Doug usually has special perspective of SL.
    doug Sosa: uh oh.
    Adams Rubble: :)
    Faenik: indeed?
    Adams Rubble: Have you been in PaB long Doug?
    Pia Iger: I found myself so easily adopted in SL, but at the same time not eager to explore further.
    doug Sosa: since the beginning, but my schedule has made it hard to be here more than once to twice a week.
    doug Sosa: I was wit Piet in the previous qwaq experience.
    Fael Illyar: Ah right, if I remember correctly, you were part of Pema's earlier groups?
    doug Sosa: oops.
    Pia Iger: Doug and Maxine are pre-PaB generation.
    Faenik is a hairy black ball with eyes and ears.
    Adams Rubble: So that is what Pia meant then
    Fael Illyar: is the qwaq group still "there"?
    Pia Iger: I like doug's typo 'I was wit Piet'
    Adams Rubble: :)
    doug Sosa: wit pit, that us.

    Marcoo1 joined us

    Adams Rubble: Hello Marcool1 :)
    Fael Illyar: Hello marcoo1
    marcoo1 Oh: hi
    marcoo1 Oh: hi all
    Fael Illyar: This is a Play as Being meeting. Have you been here before?
    Pia Iger: Hi, Marc
    Adams Rubble: Marcool has decided to join us
    Adams Rubble: today
    marcoo1 Oh: :)
    marcoo1 Oh: special invite :)
    marcoo1 Oh: i hope you don't mind
    doug Sosa: lovely, welcome.
    Fael Illyar: No, not at all :)
    Adams Rubble: Of course no one does :)
    Fael Illyar: so, since it's special invite, are you aware of what PaB is already?
    marcoo1 Oh: no..
    Adams Rubble: I will summarize
    marcoo1 Oh: but carry on.. i don't want to interupt
    marcoo1 Oh: i'll just listen
    Adams Rubble: We stop every 15 minutes and meditate for 9 seconds
    Adams Rubble: then we meet here to discuss our expereinces
    Adams Rubble: There is a website at playasbeing.wordpress.com
    Fael Illyar: (although very often rather offtopic)
    marcoo1 Oh: ok
    Adams Rubble: the group meets at 7, 1, 7, 1 every day
    Fael Illyar: it's better to type links like http://playasbeing.wordpress.com/ so they're clickable :)
    Adams Rubble: Obviously different people meet at different times
    Adams Rubble: thanks fael :)
    Adams Rubble: One other thing, we keep a record of our conversation and the log is at the website
    Adams Rubble: do you have objections to that?
    Adams Rubble: If so, we can delete your name

    We find out that messages do not always reach everyone

    doug Sosa: oh i didn't know that. i should be more...cautious?
    marcoo1 Oh: its fine
    Adams Rubble: :)
    marcoo1 Oh: thank you
    Fael Illyar: Doug, you didn't know there is a log of every meeting on the blog?
    Faenik: indeed?
    doug Sosa: no!
    Fael Illyar: I'm surprised. Pema has been rather insistent on telling every new member of it.
    doug Sosa: when something is said, it fits the moment, but often not otehr moments. I try to be very contextal.
    doug Sosa: Well, I wsn't a new member and just missed it.
    Fael Illyar: there are several hundred sessions on the blog if you're feeling like reading :)
    Fael Illyar: some of them are very interesting :)
    Adams Rubble: Yes, but much reading to them all :)
    Adams Rubble: to read them all
    Adams Rubble: but yes, some are very, very interesting :)
    Pia Iger: I feel Fael can read very fast.
    Adams Rubble: :)
    Fael Illyar: I haven't read too many. I content with just reading the ones I miss and I have been behind on that too :P
    Adams Rubble: It is amazing ow quickly one falls behind :)
    Fael Illyar: yes, very
    Pia Iger: so that is why I try to come as often as I can. don't have to read log

    Doug makes a point about not worrying about things that do not get done

    doug Sosa: but i notice there is never a day that i don't finishe exactly on time.
    Pia Iger: what do mean Doug?
    Pia Iger: do you*
    doug Sosa: what ever i do, each day ends exactly on time.
    Adams Rubble: :)
    Pia Iger: wow.
    doug Sosa: i've releaxed ever since i figured it out.
    Adams Rubble: I must remember that
    Fael Illyar: ends exactly on time means what exactly?
    doug Sosa: just that. just that.
    Fael Illyar: what is the end of your day?
    Pia Iger: hopefully, not ends on 2am everyday?
    Adams Rubble: Some of us go to bed at much the same time
    doug Sosa: today turns in to tomorrow exactly on time, whateve mess I've made.
    Faenik: could be
    Adams Rubble: That goes very well with the sentiment that it is enough to just be alive
    Adams Rubble: just to be alive
    doug Sosa: alive in a world that has its own life, we are together, nothing to be done about it. find the harmony.
    Fael Illyar: Ah, yes, now I understand what you meant :)
    doug Sosa: and the counterpoint.
    Fael Illyar: Yes, whatever happens, things go on.
    Latte : French Vanilla coming up!
    doug Sosa: and, today does, does, turn to tomorrow at midnight, kt is never to early or too late. Just is.
    Adams Rubble: and not good to dwell on past too much
    Pia Iger: also means" you don't carry the things of yesterday to tomorrow"
    doug Sosa: interesting. the past is a good story but can be a wway of avoiding the present and future.
    Latte : Delicious, isn't it?
    Faenik: could be
    Adams Rubble: yes Doug

    Doug Departs and we continue to discuss time

    doug Sosa: I must excuse, got to get ready for my pantshop.
    Fael Illyar: Faenik seems to want Latte :P
    doug Sosa: me too!
    doug Sosa: bye.
    Adams Rubble: Good to see you again, Doug :)
    Adams Rubble: bye :)
    Fael Illyar: Well, at least he knows about the blog now :)
    Adams Rubble was amazed watching Pia drink and type at the same time
    Adams Rubble: ...without spilling a drop
    Adams Rubble: Yes, Fael, that must have been a big shock to him
    Fael Illyar: the wonders of SL :)
    Adams Rubble: :)
    Fael Illyar: Hope he doesn't give Pema too rough of a time.
    Adams Rubble: :)
    Pia Iger: maybe he just forgot. he has time schedule.
    Adams Rubble: Marcoo1...Pema started the group
    Adams Rubble: I would have liked to have heard more about his experiences over the months
    Pia Iger: whose experience?
    Adams Rubble: Doug's
    Pia Iger: yes. I feel quite good in the morning hearing his view of "everyday ends exactly the same time"
    Fael Illyar: You can view that too in two ways :)
    Adams Rubble: Yes, a good thought
    Adams Rubble: yes Fael?
    Faenik: �る��^^
    Fael Illyar: People see that as an example of their own insignificance. Some people are relieved, other's self-image can't handle it.
    Adams Rubble: hmmmm
    Pia Iger: modern culture is more like "I make the day", not "follow the flow"
    Adams Rubble: I can see where some people are excited about exploring things and might not want to end the day
    Adams Rubble: ...but there must be some recognition that we can't get everything done we want to
    Adams Rubble: and maybe shouldn;t worry to much about it
    Adams Rubble: and not let that cramp our excitement about learning
    Faenik: ah :)
    Pia Iger: when I was younger, I always wonder "why we have to sleep everyday", isn't it a waste of time.
    Adams Rubble: :)
    Fael Illyar: :)
    Adams Rubble: sometimes some of the routine gets to me...why do I do this everyday?
    Adams Rubble: not just sleep
    Pia Iger: :). yes, there are rhythems of life we cannot deny or run away from.
    Fael Illyar: you mean things you've taken up as a habit but that aren't really necessary for any specific reason you know of?
    Adams Rubble: no things like eating, showering, dressing, commuting, etc.
    Pia Iger: routine of maintainence, sort of.
    Adams Rubble: yes and I try to remember that I am alive again for another day on this beautiful planet
    Adams Rubble: sort of the other side of Doug's statement
    Adams Rubble: i is a new day again and I am alive for it
    Adams Rubble: sometimes I forget to thinki this though
    Pia Iger: that is a most important part of awareness.
    Adams Rubble: yes, it is awareness, isn;t it Pia
    Pia Iger: that is all we can do actually, to live a life with appreciation.
    Pia Iger: the opposite, as Stim said, is heedlessness.
    Adams Rubble: I guess we need to end this a bit early this morning to go to the Guardian meeting
    Adams Rubble: Do you want me to take care of the log...Fael did such a beautiful job getting the other one on the Wiki :)
    Pia Iger: yes, nice comments, too.
    Adams Rubble: yes :)
    Adams Rubble: Marcoo1, we have a meeting of guardians every Sunday morning so we will have to leave you. It was very good to have you and we hope you will feel welcome to come again
    marcoo1 Oh: thanks
    Pia Iger: see. the bear located weirdly on my shoulder.
    Adams Rubble: :)
    Pia Iger: backwards.
    Faenik loves wells!
    marcoo1 Oh: see you.. thanks

    Marcoo1 leaves and we discuss editing shoulder animals and then the topic turns to Wikis

    Adams Rubble wonders if we all will have to have shoulder animals
    Pia Iger: bye, Marc.
    Adams Rubble: bue Marcoo1
    Pia Iger gave you Coca Cola Bear's Cub.
    Pia Iger: tye it.
    Fael Illyar: :P
    Adams Rubble: haha. Thanks Pia
    Pia Iger: wear it on.
    Fael Illyar: all shoulder animals? why?
    Pia Iger: so it is the bear ,not me.
    Fael Illyar: Yes, you can always move them about yourself :)
    Pia Iger: how did you changed the direction?
    Adams Rubble: right click and then edit
    Adams Rubble: there is a rotate control and a movement control
    Adams Rubble: it takes a bit of practice
    Fael Illyar: I guess I'd prefer leaving the log to you this time :)
    Fael Illyar: Thank you
    Adams Rubble: the bear would be a good start
    Faenik is a hairy black ball with eyes and ears.
    Adams Rubble: I like the noise
    Fael Illyar: Oh, right, Pia, the page you created in the wiki.
    Pia Iger: yes?
    Fael Illyar: it's under your User page and not the main wiki
    Pia Iger: how to move it up?
    Fael Illyar: there is a move functionality.
    Fael Illyar: anyway, when you create a new page, it creates it under the page you're currently viewing
    Adams Rubble: I'm going to try to find my way to the next place :)
    Fael Illyar: that's good to remember
    Fael Illyar: Ok, lets move to the guardian meeting place :)
