    jackisback Darkfold: an alt jack?
    Susi Alcott: even if anybody asks anything :)))))
    Caledonia Heron: play as being is centered around a practice where every 15 min we stop, drop and see for 9 sec or more
    Caledonia Heron: a type of meditation where we exchange frequency for duration :)

    Susi Alcott: back
    Caledonia Heron: :)
    Caledonia Heron: hey Adams :)
    Adams Rubble: Hello Cal and Susi :)
    Susi Alcott: hi Adams
    Caledonia Heron: how are you? another cute 'do :)
    Adams Rubble: thanks. I am OK. How about you?
    Caledonia Heron: I'm good. :)
    Adams Rubble: We are in the last stages of readying the exhibition
    Caledonia Heron: We just had a new person stop by so we're just getting started :)
    Adams Rubble: ah
    Caledonia Heron: ah, do you have an lm?
    Adams Rubble: It will open at the Hall of Appearance on February 6
    Caledonia Heron: lol, that means I have an lm :)
    Adams Rubble: :)
    Caledonia Heron: trying to remember the title ... art and the sacred? Am I close?
    Adams Rubble: Sacred Art in a Virtual World
    Adams Rubble: pretty close :)
    Caledonia Heron: mmm, sort of :)
    Adams Rubble: We just had an artist come through and criticize what we were doing as detracting from the building
    Caledonia Heron: ha!
    Adams Rubble: It was something that had not occurred to me at all
    Adams Rubble: So we have made some big changes in our rpesentation
    Adams Rubble: set us back two days
    Caledonia Heron: I guess you were in agreement with that comment?
    Adams Rubble: I have great respect for the person who made it
    Adams Rubble: I am learning as I go on :)
    Adams Rubble doesn;t want to ruin Storm's building :)
    Adams Rubble: hehe
    Caledonia Heron: I don't think that's possible
    Adams Rubble: Storm has been very understanding as we go along :)
    Adams Rubble: actually I knocked out a series of walls and replaced it will numerous copies of an 18c engraving
    Adams Rubble: Storm had to come and fix it
    Adams Rubble: and lock it down so I couldn't do it again :)
    Caledonia Heron: goodness :)
    Caledonia Heron: (now I'm really curious) :)
    Adams Rubble: :)



    Adams Rubble: Storm made two other Halls of Appearance...two in the sky
    Caledonia Heron: stacked one above the other?
    Adams Rubble working on stiorring curiosity :)
    Adams Rubble: Yes but way up
    Caledonia Heron: lol
    Adams Rubble: one is in the clouds and the clouds drift by in the interior rooms
    Adams Rubble: People will tp between the levels
    Caledonia Heron: cool ... I like it
    Caledonia Heron: who said floors of the same building had to be sandwiched together? :)
    Adams Rubble: right!
    Caledonia Heron: which level is your exhibit on?
    Adams Rubble: all 3
    Caledonia Heron: wowza
    Adams Rubble: That was more advice from the artists. We were cramming it all in one
    Adams Rubble: Then 2
    Adams Rubble: now all 3
    Caledonia Heron: ah, need some space to takeit all in
    Adams Rubble: Paying attention to the building which is full of textures
    Adams Rubble: not to clash with the textures
    Caledonia Heron: yeah, it's making more sense to me now
    Adams Rubble: we'll see how we do in the end. there is much to be done yet
    Caledonia Heron: I'm sure it will be great!
    Adams Rubble: well, we'll settle for not a distaster :)
    Adams Rubble: disaster
    Caledonia Heron: Lol, come on .... raise the bar! :)
    Adams Rubble: distaster too
    Caledonia Heron: :) ... I'm sure it will taste fine too
    Adams Rubble: :)



    Adams Rubble: I haven't done much PaBing this week
    Adams Rubble wondering if Susi is OK...seems to have a board through his chest
    Caledonia Heron: I can tell you've been engaged in your project:)
    Adams Rubble: Yes, I am grateful for the opportunity to do something like this
    Caledonia Heron: I think Susi is ok :)
    Drake Goldschein is Online
    Caledonia Heron: The pab is ... not sure, I guess taking different forms sometimes ... it certainly isn't the same as when I started
    Caledonia Heron: is that true for you?
    Adams Rubble: Nor even from one I did :)
    Adams Rubble: Yes, there are so many of us going in different directions
    Caledonia Heron: I agree
    Adams Rubble: It is good to try to get back in touch with what we seemed to feel was the essence for each of us
    Caledonia Heron: yes ... I think that essence is still there
    Caledonia Heron: we have tried different variations, started other complex threads, with a constantly shifting group of people
    Susi Alcott: sry got some IM's
    Adams Rubble: yes..and it is hard to get to know all the new people and for them to know us
    Caledonia Heron: there is of course a core group of people who those who have stayed around a long time can connect with
    Susi Alcott: rolling back the lines
    Adams Rubble: and we all have grown during that time too
    Caledonia Heron: yes, I probably know 1/4 to 1/3 of the people
    Caledonia Heron: so when having a discussion with say, newish people and pioneers, it's a challenge to strike a balance
    Adams Rubble: yes
    Susi Alcott: done
    Caledonia Heron: and still have it be personally meaningful



    Caledonia Heron: I sometimes would rather just talk with people I've had the most discussions with
    Adams Rubble: yes, we have shared things over the months and it we don't know whether to go over that ground again
    Adams Rubble: but it is fun to see enthusiasm in new people :)
    Caledonia Heron: not people I agree with but people that I have an inkling of where they're coming from
    Adams Rubble: hehe. yes :)
    Caledonia Heron: exactly Adams, don't know what to go over again
    Caledonia Heron: yes! love the nethusiasm
    Caledonia Heron: *enthusiasm
    Adams Rubble: We are coining new words today :)
    Caledonia Heron: lol, yes admas :)
    Adams Rubble: newnthusiasm
    Adams Rubble: admas?
    Adams Rubble: :)
    Caledonia Heron: coining new word :)
    Susi Alcott: _/!\_



    Caledonia Heron: anyway, ... I guess sharing is sharing, so maybe it's a non-issue ... still feels like something though :)
    Adams Rubble just thinking it is harder to offend those with whom we have shared so much over the months
    Adams Rubble: the conversation is easier
    Caledonia Heron: to be sure
    Caledonia Heron: and there's less backtracking
    Caledonia Heron: re-synching
    Adams Rubble: When I say something stupid, people are less likely to take it as what I think. hehe
    Caledonia Heron: maybe that's a potential morph ... to meet with different kinds of discussion groups ... probably antithetical to the pab premise
    Adams Rubble: It's probably important for us to raise these issues for discussion. It is on many of our minds
    Caledonia Heron: I don't find you to make stupid comments Adams :)
    Adams Rubble makes many :)
    Caledonia Heron: you are humble, it's one of your endearing qualities :)
    Caledonia Heron: this is on other people's minds also?
    Adams Rubble: Yes, many people talk about it especially away from PaB
    Adams Rubble: comments here and there
    Caledonia Heron: hmmm, interesting
    Caledonia Heron: It's been on my mind for a while but have not shared it until now
    Caledonia Heron: lol, I should get out more :)
    Adams Rubble: :)
    Caledonia Heron: this continuity of shared experience is one of the reasons I liked the original Sun guardian meeting
    Adams Rubble: yes
    Caledonia Heron: however a lot of housekeeping helped it cave-in maybe
    Adams Rubble: :)



    Adams Rubble: I used to feel more continuity when I could go to three sessions a day too :)
    Adams Rubble: now its three times a week or less
    Caledonia Heron: yeah, for sure ... a luxury of time I wish I could generate
    Adams Rubble: only for short bursts
    Susi Alcott: _/!\_
    Caledonia Heron: yes, short bursts of sharing but the pab is there, working, happening even when not at repeated discussions, for me anyway :)
    Adams Rubble: yes
    Adams Rubble hasn't been reading the last couple of weeks either
    Caledonia Heron: I'm not sure where we are on it as a group anymore, from what I can see we have gone our individual ways .... maybe that is a function of the short burst thing



    Susi Alcott: maybe I can then repeat what was the topic here just few whiles ago
    Caledonia Heron: sure Susi
    Adams Rubble: yes Susi :)
    Susi Alcott: that was how Pema is missed
    Adams Rubble: yes
    Adams Rubble: he was a link to us all
    Susi Alcott: that can be with Adams too
    Caledonia Heron: does he come around? I don't know
    Caledonia Heron: I know he is very busy professionally :)
    Adams Rubble: yes
    Adams Rubble: and with Kira
    Caledonia Heron: yes, Kira for sure
    Caledonia Heron: I think this group is self-sustaining without dependence on any one person, however I agree that Pema is likely a common link between us all :)
    Adams Rubble: yes, I agree
    Susi Alcott: _/!\_
    Adams Rubble: But we have devloped links with each other too over the months
    Caledonia Heron: yes! that is in part how we have become self-sustaining :)
    Adams Rubble: :)
    Adams Rubble: But it has hurt a bit too as some of our friends have dropped away
    Caledonia Heron: since people are discussing these issues apart and away from pab I wonder if it's warranted to meet at large to discuss ???
    Caledonia Heron: yes, people are dropping away
    Adams Rubble has talked about this with Pema a bit
    Caledonia Heron: and?
    Susi Alcott: usually that is natural what comes to free groups
    Caledonia Heron: agreed Susi :)
    Adams Rubble: We just talked liked we are doing here
    Adams Rubble: and yes Susi
    Caledonia Heron: mmm, k



    Adams Rubble: It is good to bring this up in a session where it can get more general consideration
    Caledonia Heron: I appreciate your comments Adams and knowing I'm not the Lone Ranger on this
    Adams Rubble: :)
    Adams Rubble glad she is not the Tonto in this
    Caledonia Heron: lol, we are neither :)
    Adams Rubble: or silver
    Adams Rubble: Silver
    Adams Rubble: Neeeeighhh!
    Caledonia Heron: Frau Blucher!!!!
    Adams Rubble: who?
    Caledonia Heron: lol
    Caledonia Heron: it's a running joke in the movie Young Frankenstein
    Caledonia Heron: whenever the horses whinney, somehow they work in creepy Frau Blucher reference (a character who lives at the castle)
    Adams Rubble: :)
    Adams Rubble goes back to chewing on oats
    Caledonia Heron: chomp chomp



    Caledonia Heron: I'm gonna scoot along ...
    Caledonia Heron: thanks for the discussion
    Susi Alcott: _/!\_
    Caledonia Heron: a little light on the capital P A B ... yet good :)
    Susi Alcott: thank you Cal
    Caledonia Heron: see you soon Susi :)
    Adams Rubble: sorry interruption
    Adams Rubble: bye Cal :)
    Caledonia Heron: bye Adams :)
    Susi Alcott: _/!\_
