    "The Guardian for this meeting was stevenaia Michinaga. The comments are stevenaia's

    The night's session was sparse in people and comments tonight and ended shortly after the 1/2 hour. Only Rowan Masala was there.

    stevenaia Michingana: hello, I'm having rezzing issues..who's there?
    Rowan Masala: me
    stevenaia Michingana: oh hi, I can;t see any pillows
    stevenaia Michingana: they are beginning to appear
    Rowan Masala: you're wearing your shoe base but no shoes
    No room to sit here, try another spot.
    Rowan Masala: how did you make it switch to sitting indian style?
    Rowan Masala: ah, got it
    stevenaia Michingana: nice of you to notice my feet
    Rowan Masala: never mind
    stevenaia Michingana: got what?
    Rowan Masala: never mind

    Gong sounds... I take a breath and focus for the next nine seconds

    stevenaia Michingana: breath
    stevenaia Michingana: hmm, I need to start opening my eyes
    stevenaia Michingana: when I do the nines, I;m getting mostly darkess theses days
    Rowan Masala: you're getting darkness during your nine second meditations?
    stevenaia Michingana: oh look I fianlly see your shirt, we match
    Tousled Gift Box: Right click this gift box and select OPEN.
    stevenaia Michingana: I'm telling you these shirts may be the key to PaB and it;s funding issues
    stevenaia Michingana: then we can have PaB fest in tahiti, all expenses paidfor by PaB ware
    Rowan Masala laughs
    Rowan Masala: we're not recording yet, are we?
    stevenaia Michingana: yes...smile
    stevenaia Michingana: so do you ever take time during your day to do the secs?

    Neela Blaisdale arrives...

    Neela Blaisdale: Hi Rowan and Steve
    Rowan Masala: hi Neela
    stevenaia Michingana: hi neela
    Neela Blaisdale: Can only stay for a few minutes unfortunately, work tomorrow
    stevenaia Michingana: did you find out what that building was?
    Neela Blaisdale: No, I'll ask Storm sometime, he might know.
    stevenaia Michingana: do you have the oppurtunity to take your 9 second moments during thr day Neela?
    stevenaia Michingana: the only person I know of that has put a good label on "it" the "Nines" was adelene
    Rowan Masala smiles
    Rowan Masala: it is a good label
    stevenaia Michingana: unless there's a shorter terms anyone else can think of
    Rowan Masala: 9s
    Neela Blaisdale: Sorry, phone call. Yes sometimes but not every hour
    stevenaia Michingana: not many of us (yet) tonight anyone have a focused topic to bring to the table
    stevenaia Michingana: hmmm, I like that
    stevenaia Michingana: 9s
    stevenaia Michingana: 9z
    Rowan Masala laughs
    Neela Blaisdale: But somehow the whole process has helped to make me more mindful in general. In other words I do try to stay in the moment much more than I used to before PaB
    Rowan Masala: that's great Neela
    Rowan Masala: how long have you been with PaB?
    stevenaia Michingana: I noticed that it does not necessarilly give "now" to me as it puts me somewhere else
    Rowan Masala: where do you think it puts you, Steven?
    Neela Blaisdale: Where?
    Neela Blaisdale: Somewhere around 9 weeks I think

    I wonder about "Now-ness" and being present..... if you change your thinking of "the moment", it is, after all the same thing, it's "the moment".  Whether it's called  "9 second moment",  Nines, 9s, 9z, it's the next 9 seconds, whatever you call it...


    stevenaia Michingana: I'm usually pretty present with the moment, so the 9s give me a new perspective on the moment
    Neela Blaisdale: Interesting
    Rowan Masala: what sort of perspective?
    stevenaia Michingana: if that makes sence, but them I do it only now and then, like at these meetings
    Neela Blaisdale: Sorry I have to go to sleep, see you soon,goodnight
    stevenaia Michingana: an external perspective
    stevenaia Michingana: night neela
    Rowan Masala: goodnight, Neela
    stevenaia Michingana: like being sees the moment
    Rowan Masala nods
    stevenaia Michingana: never had a quiet wednesday , glad you joined me
    Rowan Masala: happy to be here
    stevenaia Michingana: bye Rowan


    Rowan Masala departs and I sit a few more minutes alone in the pavillian
