    doug Sosa: oops hi, went asleep there.
    Eos Amaterasu: Just woke up myself :-)
    doug Sosa: are you home?
    Eos Amaterasu: Am in Hotel room, catching plane shortly back to home and tropical storm (so may not actually make it today)
    doug Sosa: ah yes. saw that. Sory I had to leave yesteday, friday traffic up the coast friday afternoon is terrible and after 2 every minute later takes five more in travel time.
    Eos Amaterasu: Yes, was very slow at times for us.
    doug Sosa: I had a six oclock meeting and was afrid i'd miss it.
    Eos Amaterasu: Looking forward to SL sessions here & AVs
    doug Sosa: Hm, retreat did not improve my typing :)
    Eos Amaterasu: Hi Gaya
    Gaya Ethaniel: Hello doug and Eos :)
    Gaya Ethaniel: May I lower the fountain?
    doug Sosa: morning.
    Eos Amaterasu: Sure!
    doug Sosa: yes, please.
    Gaya Ethaniel: This cushion has a better sit pose for me :)
    doug Sosa: see you better too.
    Gaya Ethaniel: ?
    doug Sosa: hm, better line of sight?
    Gaya Ethaniel: ah ok
    Eos Amaterasu: Doug and I are both back from RL retreat
    Gaya Ethaniel: Yes :) How was it?
    doug Sosa: being here after the retreat i feel like i've had a very extensive massage. my body feels that loosness and my mind slightly mushy.
    Eos Amaterasu: which was beatiful, and I thought a powerful experience
    Gaya Ethaniel: ah :)
    Eos Amaterasu: Relaxed, lots of free time open space (for being!) and some intensive sessions discussions
    doug Sosa: Wondeful friendliness, not in a big deal way, just comfortable and toleerant. People listen more than talk.
    Gaya Ethaniel: Sounds wonderful :)
    Gaya Ethaniel: What kind of activities did you do together you enjoyed?
    Eos Amaterasu: Suggestion is to have these every 4 months
    doug Sosa: sat just like here.
    doug Sosa: easy food, in the redwoods..
    Gaya Ethaniel: wow ... every 4 months? Is that fixed?
    doug Sosa: rather rustic and shockingly bright blue skies.
    Wol Euler: hello gaya, doug, eos
    Eos Amaterasu: We'll see - likely start with Europe in late Jan or Feb
    Gaya Ethaniel: Hello Wol :)
    Eos Amaterasu: Hi Wol!
    doug Sosa: (hi).
    Wol Euler: how was the retreat, Doug?
    Gaya Ethaniel: I will copy/paste what's been said about the retreat for you Wol in IM.
    Wol Euler: sure, no need to dupliccate :)
    doug Sosa: Eos was allso there. It was tme out of time in some ways. little overhead for maintenence so we really got to be together.
    Eos Amaterasu: Food was great :-)
    Gaya Ethaniel: What did you get? :)
    Eos Amaterasu: More sessions, often several practices for sessions, meant it could go a bit deeper
    doug Sosa: fish, shripm, scallops, soups and salads. Healthy, tasty.
    Gaya Ethaniel: Hello Yakuzza :) [in 90 sec stop atm]
    Wol Euler: hello yakuzza
    doug Sosa: hi ya.
    Yakuzza Lethecus: hey everyone
    Eos Amaterasu: Hi Yak
    Eos Amaterasu: Pema will write up some of the exercise details, which were a bit more specific
    Gaya Ethaniel: Sounds delicious!
    Wol Euler: great.
    Wol Euler: how was the day of silence?
    Gaya Ethaniel: ah that'd be nice :)
    Eos Amaterasu: Really good to do the silent day -was surprisingly easy fo most
    Eos Amaterasu: *for
    doug Sosa: instead of, for me, being the most different day, itn was the most like my normal life.
    Wol Euler: ((I may need to go to work for an hour soon, could somebody else take the session please?))
    doug Sosa: I spend more time in my own river house than with people so..
    Gaya Ethaniel: Is this yours Wol?
    Eos Amaterasu: (I also need to leave soon, for plane)
    Wol Euler: that's interesting, doug
    Wol Euler: nope
    doug Sosa: planes are still important.
    Gaya Ethaniel: Just finished Scribe ... so will post this without comments.
    doug Sosa: Scribe?
    Gaya Ethaniel: http://playasbeing.wik.is/PaB_Scribe_Project
    Gaya Ethaniel: doug any suprises about people in terms of their RL avatars vs. SL avatars?
    doug Sosa: yes, of course, given my weird sensitivities. The texture of the space in terms of body presence is so diffeent, sitting in this group and that.
    Eos Amaterasu: I myself felt that the RL body quickly went to background, and that the self I had met in SL was still there
    Wol Euler smiles and nods.
    doug Sosa: In the retreat the modesty and muted colors were obvious.
    Eos Amaterasu: although expressed in richer ways
    doug Sosa: Piet had a Paul Klee shirt and it seemed to me a wonderful expression f play and econstruction. I suggested we take Klee as a mascot and actually use the paintings. He was a sophisticated buy.
    doug Sosa: of play and deconstruction..
    Eos Amaterasu: Turns out Pema is a t-shirt aficionado
    Wol Euler grins
    Eos Amaterasu: BTW let's design a PaB t-shirt
    Gaya Ethaniel nods :) He is a bit known for that I heard.
    Gaya Ethaniel: There is one already ... let me see.
    Eos Amaterasu: Very good taste :-)
    doug Sosa: It is easier to sit here than at the retreat. Something about gravity
    Wol Euler: :)
    Gaya Ethaniel: I think doug has them already ... let me know if you don't.
    Eos Amaterasu: thnx G
    Gaya Ethaniel: yw :)
    doug Sosa: And of course me and my avatar are the same peson but everyone else...
    Wol Euler: what, aren't they?
    Eos Amaterasu: (Doug gets metaphysical :-)
    doug Sosa: t-shirt? Don't think so, but then we played with letting go of the past so..
    doug Sosa: ah, it just arrived.
    Gaya Ethaniel: :)
    Gaya Ethaniel: Why was it difficult doug? I didn't quite understand that.
    doug Sosa: difficult?
    Gaya Ethaniel: [7:25] doug Sosa: It is easier to sit here than at the retreat. Something about gravity
    doug Sosa: ah, well in the retreat sitting mean you have to think through posture and keep quiet and look like you are deep and gone. Here the avatar just floats in pixels and i can be floating in my hot tub.
    doug Sosa: (though i don't have one.)
    Wol Euler: oh, that's an old shirt, it has the old URL on it.
    Gaya Ethaniel: ah ... ok
    Wol Euler blows bubbles
    Eos Amaterasu switches to the white t-shirt
    doug Sosa: I am going to have to leave... bye for now..
    Gaya Ethaniel: Enjoy your day doug :)
    Wol Euler: bye doug, welcome home
    doug Sosa: :)
    Eos Amaterasu: Met too, taking off (literally)
    Gaya Ethaniel: Have a good trip Eos :)
    Eos Amaterasu: *me
    Wol Euler: bye eos, bon voyage
    Eos Amaterasu: Thnkx, chiao all
    Gaya Ethaniel: Well I should get back to RL too. Enjoy your weekend Wol and Yakuzza :)
    Wol Euler: bye gaya!
    Yakuzza Lethecus: it´s over pretty early today
    Wol Euler nods.
    Yakuzza Lethecus: skype ?
    Wol Euler: I haven't got that working yet. Still no phone
    Wol Euler: I was in Gravis today, couldn't see one.
    Yakuzza Lethecus: but you got a headset :D
    Wol Euler: yes, I suppose so. heh.
    Yakuzza Lethecus: i did not even know gravis
    Yakuzza Lethecus: it´s more an apple and designerstore
    Wol Euler: mmhmm
    Wol Euler <- apple user
    Yakuzza Lethecus: i never used an apple
    Yakuzza Lethecus: ok exept my ipod touch maybe :P
    Wol Euler: :)
    Wol Euler: well, you are infected now, heheheheh. The cunning plan worked.
    Wol Euler: you will soon find yourself annoyed wiht Windows, and buy a Mac
    Yakuzza Lethecus: but they are not on the ibm processors anymore and there are even workarounds to use the software on every pc, ok but that wouldn´t be allowed i guess
    Yakuzza Lethecus: hmm, i guess you can cut that out :P
    Wol Euler: :)
    Wol Euler: shall we sto the sssion?
    Wol Euler: *stop the session
    Yakuzza Lethecus: yeah
