    Greetings Earthlings.  I have come to observe your planet.  This is what I heard today. - CH



    Lovely to see Adelene and Umbriel on arrival ...

    Adelene Dawner: Hi, Cal.
    Faenik is a hairy black ball with eyes and ears.
    Umbriel Levenque: Peace and Love
    Caledonia Heron: morning :)
    Caledonia Heron: how are you guys?
    Caledonia Heron: [rezzing]
    Caledonia Heron: [sloooowly]
    Umbriel Levenque: well thank you. yourself?
    Faenik is a hairy black ball with eyes and ears.
    Caledonia Heron: good :) seriously scheduled today but trying to relax within it ... it's early on :)
    Umbriel Levenque: ah one of those busy days
    Caledonia Heron: yes :)
    Caledonia Heron: days end for you Umbriel?
    Caledonia Heron: or midday?
    Umbriel Levenque: mid-afternoon here Cal. stuff mostly done :-)
    Caledonia Heron: nice, ... the exhale portion of the day :)
    Umbriel Levenque: :-)

    Adelene needs to leave ...

    Caledonia Heron: how have your 9secs been going?
    Adelene Dawner: hm... I find I know that I have nothing to say today, and I really *do* need to go pack up for the trip. If you don't mind, I'll take my leave.
    Caledonia Heron: ok, no problem
    Caledonia Heron: bye
    Umbriel Levenque: enjoy your trip Adelene
    Adelene Dawner: ^.^
    Adelene Dawner: see you around, folks :)
    Caledonia Heron: that was quick :)

    A little bit about an experience the evening before... on the bravery of artists, how sharing their art creates a circuit of being; passionate, empowering, melancholy, pain all at once  ...

    Umbriel Levenque: 9 sec... a mixed bag recently. often nothing as before otherwise um... 'fuzzy'
    Umbriel Levenque: 'nothing'*
    Caledonia Heron: fuzzy like no clear impressions?
    Umbriel Levenque: um... it's not an impression just jumbled feelings possibly?
    Caledonia Heron: sure, I think I understand .... feelings floating around all mixed up sometimes, I can relate to that :)
    Umbriel Levenque: :-)
    Caledonia Heron: I was at a performance last night of a very good friend with exceptional talent
    Faenik: ????^^
    Caledonia Heron: I was very moved by it
    Umbriel Levenque: :-)
    Caledonia Heron: and thought that the feeling or experience I was having while it was occuring was an appearance by being
    Usucha whispers: Hmm!
    Caledonia Heron: and what a remarkable thing it is for somone to stand on a stage before everyone and express something so heartfelt
    Caledonia Heron: to share something so deeply held and felt on an emotional level with friends and many strangers
    Umbriel Levenque: you must have been open enough to communicate well with the performance :-)
    Umbriel Levenque: Peace and Love
    Solobill Laville: Heya!
    Caledonia Heron: open enough to receive it and appreciate it for sure

    Time management but if there is no time how can we manage it; the dog chases his tail while reading his day planner ...

    Caledonia Heron: hi Solobill :)
    Solobill Laville: Hi, Cal!
    Caledonia Heron: how are you today?
    Solobill Laville: Good, getting very busy lately, and you??
    Caledonia Heron: yes, same here ... the pace is increasing for some reason ... maybe the push before holiday season :)
    Solobill Laville: could be
    Solobill Laville: You seem to more involved in "admin" type stuff of late, e.g. Kira...
    Caledonia Heron: there is a big push there for sure ... we have a deadline for a grant proposal so many tasks to be managed just now
    Faenik: ????^^
    Solobill Laville nods
    Solobill Laville: Good luck
    Caledonia Heron: it is possibly a trend that will continue for me
    Caledonia Heron: I have started to look for a replacement for one of my goc slots, one that I took temporarily several months ago
    Solobill Laville: hehe, "temporarily"
    Caledonia Heron: if either of you are interested please let me know .... Thurs at 7am slt or this slot could work also ... Thurs was the temp slot but releasing either one would work
    Solobill Laville: OK, I will let you know... :)
    Umbriel Levenque: yes
    Caledonia Heron: thank you for considering it :)
    Solobill Laville: It is nice of you to have taken two for so long
    Solobill Laville: btw - didn't mean to interrupt...
    Caledonia Heron: it seems small in comparison to Pema who still has 4 slots I think
    Caledonia Heron: and his daily calendar from what I can tell is NUTS!!
    Solobill Laville: I bet

    Wol joins us and the label above her name says I'm 2 sexy 4 my shirt! ...

    Umbriel Levenque: Peace and Love
    Wol Euler: hello my dears
    Caledonia Heron: maybe I should be lobbying to release one of his slots :)
    Solobill Laville: Hi, Wol!
    Caledonia Heron: hey there Wol :)
    Solobill Laville: I've been moving some May logs to the new wiki
    Caledonia Heron: you are indeed 2 sexy 4 your shirt :)
    Umbriel Levenque: :-)
    Solobill Laville: and it is amazing to notice that almost every session back then was still hiis
    Harper Beresford is Online
    Caledonia Heron: yes, he went to every one back then .... to get it rolling and because I think it's very important to him :)
    Solobill Laville: It is really fun to go back and read those too
    Faenik: ????^^
    Caledonia Heron: we didn't start the guardian thing until he went to Japan for the first time and we had to figure out timezones, coverage, etc
    Solobill Laville: yup
    Solobill Laville: In retrospect, in reading my own comments
    Solobill Laville: It is interesting to see how I engaged at the beginning
    Solobill Laville: As I tried to figure things out :)
    Caledonia Heron: probably true for near all of us :)
    Umbriel Levenque: :-)
    Solobill Laville: Oh, yes, I think that's true
    Caledonia Heron: trying to understand and speak in a way to be understood
    Solobill Laville: yep
    Caledonia Heron: a lot of vocabulary, how do you say/express it stuff
    Solobill Laville: And actually, in my case, trying a wee bit too hard...
    Wol Euler: ah :)
    Caledonia Heron: perhaps we are more free to relax with one another now

    Friends, friends and what's that about? ...

    Umbriel Levenque: will go read those later Solo
    Solobill Laville: There are some real nice ones that I had missed
    Solobill Laville: Pema and Stim talking just the two of them
    Solobill Laville: Cal and Gen, that one is wonderful!
    Caledonia Heron: yes, they have a nice established style and flow between them, they have been friends for many years
    Caledonia Heron: yes, a very special friendship gained there for me :)
    Solobill Laville: http://playasbeing.wik.is/Chat_Logs/2008/05/2008.05.23_19%3a00_-_The_Suchness_Dimension
    Caledonia Heron: I don't make friends particularly easily so it stays with me :)
    Solobill Laville: http://playasbeing.wik.is/Chat_Logs/2008/05/2008.05.21_Jamming_around_to-don%E2%80%99t
    Umbriel Levenque: reading
    Solobill Laville: That is the link to those two
    Solobill Laville: I wouldn't have thought that, Cal
    Caledonia Heron: well, there's friends and then there's Friends :)
    Caledonia Heron: does that make sense?
    Solobill Laville: oh yeah
    Wol Euler: oh yes
    Caledonia Heron: I have lots of friends, little "f"
    Caledonia Heron: not many Friends, big "f"
    Caledonia Heron: by choice
    Umbriel Levenque: um... what's the difference may I ask?
    Caledonia Heron: personal connection, getting and being gotten, being able to count on and be accountable to, things like that

    corry comes to visit ...

    corry Scarmon: hi there
    Caledonia Heron: hi corry :)
    Wol Euler: hello corry
    Umbriel Levenque: would you liken those Friends to a 'family'?
    Solobill Laville: Really, by choice?
    Umbriel Levenque: Peace and Love
    Solobill Laville: Hi, Corry!
    corry Scarmon: what's up guys?
    PaB Listener Master: This unit automatically logs 'Play as Being' sessions.
    PaB Listener Master: Recording starts when at least one Guardian is present,  and will continue until all Guardians leave.
    PaB Listener Master: Guardians may stop a session (and optionally begin the next) by touching the unit.
    PaB Listener Master: Please do not be concerned about the way I look, I am just a prototype! Feel free to build something that looks better.
    Caledonia Heron: we are having a discussion group corry, called play as being :)
    Caledonia Heron: we have a meditation practice which we do and come together to discuss what that's like for us
    Caledonia Heron: we are recording this discussion , may we record your comments?
    corry Scarmon: yeah why not
    Caledonia Heron: ok, thanks
    Solobill Laville: Here
    Solobill Laville: is a NOtecard about it Corry
    Faenik: ????^^
    Caledonia Heron: ty Solobill :)
    Caledonia Heron: may I have a copy of that please?
    corry Scarmon: of what?
    Caledonia Heron: I was asking Solobill for a copy of the notecard
    corry Scarmon: oh sorry
    Solobill Laville gave you playasbeing.
    Solobill Laville: THere you go, Cal
    Solobill Laville: Sorry, RL convo
    Caledonia Heron: thank you very much - that will save me some typing :)

    Solo follows up on being selective about friendships, something I think everyone does, you are friends with people who you connect with on a particular level ...

    Solobill Laville: So, Cal, getting back to my last comment
    Solobill Laville: That is a choice you have made?
    Caledonia Heron: yes, sorry got on a sidestreet :)
    Caledonia Heron: a choice , you mean about being selective of friendships?
    Solobill Laville: Yes
    Caledonia Heron: for certain kinds of friendships, yes
    Solobill Laville: Is that different from really what anyone would do, if you know what I mean...
    Caledonia Heron: bye corry :)
    Solobill Laville: bye corry
    Caledonia Heron: I don't know
    Wol Euler: bye corry
    Umbriel Levenque: Peace and Love
    corry Scarmon: i'm not going
    Solobill Laville: oh, good!
    Wol Euler: hehehehehhe. sorry, but it did look that way.
    corry Scarmon: i just want to look around
    Wol Euler is annoyed and puzzled to note that the autologger is not logging, and hasn't logged anyhting since 1 a.m. yesterday.
    Umbriel Levenque: ah...
    Solobill Laville: Cal, I was thinking that maybe it was personal "bandwidth" or somesuch, or if you really only want a small select group of "capital Fs" :)
    Solobill Laville: Friends vs friends
    Caledonia Heron: I prefer a select group ... I go back to your inquiry as to the discussion with Gen and making friends .... merely observations about how it is for me :)
    Faenik: indeed?

    A giant jolt of sound when corry touched the Pab sign ...

    Caledonia Heron: what is that noise????
    Umbriel Levenque: looks like corry started the siren
    Solobill Laville nods
    Wol Euler: ah
    Caledonia Heron: omgosh, make it stop please
    corry Scarmon: what did i start?
    Wol Euler: I think we can ask moon to deactivate that :-)
    Caledonia Heron: yes, yesterday
    Solobill Laville has his computer muted and is in silence bliss :)
    Umbriel Levenque: :-)
    Caledonia Heron: where is the control?
    Wol Euler: touching the PaB-logo poster starts off that siren.
    Wol Euler: there is no "off", alas. touching it again just makes it go longer.
    Solobill Laville: True, that
    Caledonia Heron: I took the script out
    Wol Euler: :-)
    Solobill Laville: Like a ruptured appendix
    Caledonia Heron: yes, surgical strike :)
    Solobill Laville: Good work, Cal
    Umbriel Levenque: :-)
    Faenik: could be
    Caledonia Heron: I am derailed after that
    Solobill Laville reads back in the chat
    Umbriel Levenque: yes I can empathize with that Cal

    Two threads start up, how we communicate with others and on corry's boredom with sl, really disjointed ...

    Solobill Laville: Oh, here was where I was going...
    Solobill Laville: I noted my behavior at the onset of PaB
    corry Scarmon: it is a boring game
    Wol Euler shrugs. There are other games in other places.
    corry Scarmon: no
    corry Scarmon: i mean SL
    Wol Euler: look in the "search" under "events", perhaps you'll find something more suitable.
    corry Scarmon: is boiring
    corry Scarmon: boring
    Solobill Laville: And it is interesting to see how newer folks go through many of the same motions
    Caledonia Heron: corry is 3 days old, perhaps he is in "traveling" mode :)
    Solobill Laville: as they figure things out, and let things happen more naturally
    Umbriel Levenque: yes
    Solobill Laville: Corry, think of SL as a platform, for one, perhaps
    corry Scarmon: what do you mean by traveling?
    Caledonia Heron: sure Solobill, it's interesting to note that we are all able to communicate on some level even though we join the pab continuum at different times
    Solobill Laville: I think Cal means "looking around", yes Cal?
    Solobill Laville: Exploring
    Caledonia Heron: yes, typically new avs spend a great deal of time traveling around, exploring, finding "their" places
    Solobill Laville: Oh, yes, I sure did
    Caledonia Heron: me too, many many places :)
    corry Scarmon: offcourse i'm exploring i don't have anything else to do
    Solobill Laville: But spent a lot of it in Reiul too...
    Caledonia Heron: another thing you can do is join groups and attend events corry, that is a way to more deeply engage in sl
    corry Scarmon: what are those places?
    Wol Euler: thy might be more fun than sitting here :-) clubs and entertainment mostly.
    Solobill Laville: Folks, i must be off, have a wonderful day/evening/morning!
    Caledonia Heron: a way to make personal connections
    Caledonia Heron: bye Solobill :)
    Wol Euler: bye solo, see you this evening?
    Umbriel Levenque: Good day Solo. see you soon again
    Umbriel Levenque: Peace and Love
    corry Scarmon: bye mate
    Solobill Laville: What's this evening, Wol? (did I forget something?)
    Wol Euler: no, I'm covering for Quilty again :-)
    Solobill Laville: AH!
    Wol Euler: 1pm = evening for me
    Solobill Laville: Perhaps!
    Umbriel Levenque: :-)
    Wol Euler: take care
    Umbriel Levenque: must get going here too. enjoy your day
    Umbriel Levenque: Peace and Love
    Caledonia Heron: bye Umbriel :)
    corry Scarmon: bye

    Teaching corry some ways to get the power of sl ...

    corry Scarmon: tell me plz ,what is the point of this game?
    Wol Euler: back, and missed Umbriel. ah well
    Wol Euler: it's not really a "game" corry.
    Wol Euler: there is no winnning, no losing, no points, no score, no "end"
    corry Scarmon: i don't understand
    Wol Euler: many poeple just use it to talk to each other.
    Caledonia Heron: it's a discussion group corry :)
    corry Scarmon: so what am i suposed to do here
    Caledonia Heron: we are talking with on another about the topics contained in the notecard you were given
    Caledonia Heron: *one
    Wol Euler: well, a lot of the things you can do in RL. make friends, hang out wiht them, make stuff and sell it, use the money to buy stuff
    Wol Euler: but also things yqou can hardlöy do in RL.
    Drake Goldschein is Online
    Wol Euler: like being a woman, or a tiger or a parrot, or a sofa.
    Caledonia Heron: lol
    Wol Euler: and ther are also parts of SL that are classical games.
    Wol Euler: xyou can play first-person shooter here too :-) or swordfighting
    corry Scarmon: ok that is the part i am looking for
    Wol Euler: ok, hat is known as "RP" or role playing within SL.
    Caledonia Heron: bring up the search tab at the bottom of the screen and search for the topics that interest you
    Wol Euler: yep
    Caledonia Heron: then you can start tp'ing around to those places and checking them out
    Wol Euler: three areas to try: look in "groups" to find people interested in what interests you.
    Wol Euler: look in "events" to find special one-offs, like an introduction weekend for newborns etc
    Wol Euler: and look in "all" for generall goodness :-)
    Caledonia Heron: :)
    corry Scarmon: thanx
    Wol Euler: yw
    Wol Euler: start wth the groups is my advice, find people who do what you want to do, and ask them where to start.
    Wol Euler: they will be able to tell you more than we can.
    Caledonia Heron: yes, good pointers Wol
    corry Scarmon: where i can find some people like you mentioned
    corry Scarmon: ?
    Wol Euler: search for them, in the Groups tab of the Search window.
    corry Scarmon: so all this game is about searching
    corry Scarmon: and exploring
    Wol Euler: type in "gunfight" or whatever, adn look for groups that include that in their description.
    Wol Euler: yeah, you might say that.
    Wol Euler: like RL, there is a lot in it, you have to look around.
    Caledonia Heron: sl is not a game really, it's a platform, a place to do and create what you want :)
    Wol Euler: it's possible to be bored in New York too, if you don't know hwere to go. This is no different.
    corry Scarmon: yes you probably right
    Caledonia Heron: I have to go you guys, nice to see you Wol anad nice to meet you corry , good luck finding your "crowd" :)
    Wol Euler: :-)
    Wol Euler: bye cal, take care.
    corry Scarmon: 10x
