    Ezlia joined me soon after Fefonz left. It was nice to meet Eliza in person finally.


    Gaya Ethaniel: Hi Eliza
    Eliza Madrigal: Gaya, hello. :)
    Gaya Ethaniel: How are you?
    Eliza Madrigal: Another quiet setting...
    Gaya Ethaniel smiles.
    Eliza Madrigal: I' m well...waiting for a friend to take me to lunch today..so, happy :)
    Eliza Madrigal: You?
    Gaya Ethaniel smiles. "I'm well, thanks."
    Eliza Madrigal: This is actually nice...you and I have not spoken much :)
    Gaya Ethaniel: That is true. I saw your emails but we haven't met in-world until now.
    Eliza Madrigal: yes
    Gaya Ethaniel: How are you finding PaB?
    Eliza Madrigal: Enjoying it very much
    Gaya Ethaniel smiles.
    Gaya Ethaniel: I can't quite remember but you found PaB via Kira?
    Eliza Madrigal: No actually. I sit at zen retreat in the evenings, and first learned of PaB there I believe
    Gaya Ethaniel: ah I see.
    Eliza Madrigal: I had wandered around over here...but people hadn't been sitting
    Eliza Madrigal: Then buddha nirvana and I came together one day as I recall..
    Gaya Ethaniel nods. "It's not so busy in early sessions."
    Eliza Madrigal: How did you find PaB originally?
    Eliza Madrigal: (my typing is worse than usual today because I soehow had the impulse to attach fake nails...heh)
    Gaya Ethaniel: Accidentally by a tp from Zen Retreat when we had the pavilion nearby.
    Gaya Ethaniel giggles.
    Eliza Madrigal: Ah! :)
    Eliza Madrigal: The nails might be a good tool....maybe I'll type less...seem to want to jump into everything lately :)
    Gaya Ethaniel: I haven't noticed you jumping in... :)
    Eliza Madrigal: :)
    Gaya Ethaniel smiles.
    Eliza Madrigal: I've been here nearly every day at some point...sometimes twice. Maybe our timing is unmatched. the 1PM is tough to make, as are some weekends. :)
    Gaya Ethaniel: I was doing much the same initially :)
    Eliza Madrigal: Yes?
    Gaya Ethaniel: I was here more or less everyday initially I meant. Well I had more free time too then :)
    Eliza Madrigal: Yes...our schedules change. I'm certainly in a window that faciliates this right now...and am aware it is a window. :)
    Gaya Ethaniel smiles.
    Eliza Madrigal: It seems like the window was carved out, in a way.
    Gaya Ethaniel pauses... and ponders.
    Gaya Ethaniel: And perhaps I was fortunate enough to seize it.
    Eliza Madrigal: :) yes...taking hold of moments when they present themselves :)
    Gaya Ethaniel smiles.
    Eliza Madrigal: The other day I attended an event at these gardens...and wandered around among sculptures....
    Eliza Madrigal: One was a swing.
    Gaya Ethaniel listens.
    Eliza Madrigal: I was fine to play on...but of course no one was doing so....
    Eliza Madrigal: It wasn't a children's event ...BUT...
    Eliza Madrigal: I still got on the swing.
    Eliza Madrigal: I don't think I would have done that 3 months ago
    Gaya Ethaniel smiles.
    Gaya Ethaniel: Would you tell me why not 3 months ago?
    Eliza Madrigal: I'm not sure "play" was a priority then
    Eliza Madrigal: My faciliating my children's play, yes, but not allowing myself to play i the big playground of life :)
    Eliza Madrigal: *in
    Gaya Ethaniel ponders.
    Eliza Madrigal: I'd become inward and grown up...unflexible I think.: ) PaB has reminded me to play...not just think about a time when I might get to
    Eliza Madrigal: :)
    Gaya Ethaniel smiles.
    Eliza Madrigal: What was your experience when you first were here?
    Gaya Ethaniel: Well... even laughing too much is frowned upon when one is 'grown up'.
    Eliza Madrigal: yes...or too loudly
    Eliza Madrigal can be quite "dignified" =P~
    Gaya Ethaniel: ah... I was interviewed about it for PaB Chronicle if you care to read later. But essentially the spirit of the group remains more or less same I think.
    Gaya Ethaniel smiles.
    Eliza Madrigal: Okay :)
    Gaya Ethaniel: It's nice to see the group growing though.
    Gaya Ethaniel: I must get back to RL I'm afraid. Hope you enjoy your lunch and outing Eliza :)
    Eliza Madrigal: Ah, time for me to hit the town. Thank you Gaya, and I'm glad we got to meet.
    Gaya Ethaniel smiles and waves.
    Eliza Madrigal: Thanks, Gaya :) Enjoy your day
