    Yakuzza Lethecus: hey eden
    Eden Haiku: Hey Yaku!
    Yakuzza Lethecus: hiya arch
    Yakuzza Lethecus: good morning cal
    Caledonia Heron: hi :) good morning :)
    Archmage Atlantis: Morning
    Eden Haiku: Hello Archmage, Caledonia!
    Caledonia Heron: mmm, think that is Yakuzza?
    Eden Haiku: Ys, he is here. Afk now I think...
    Caledonia Heron: have you been to this discussion before Eden?
    Caledonia Heron: are you familiar with how it's set-up and it's purpose?
    Eden Haiku: Yes, I have been here a few times. I like it very much.
    Gaya Ethaniel: Hello everyone :)
    Eden Haiku: Hello Gaya!
    Archmage Atlantis: Hello Gya
    Archmage Atlantis: Gaya
    Caledonia Heron: great :) you know that we record the sessions as "logs" that appear online - are you ok to include your comments?
    Caledonia Heron: hi Gaya :)
    Eden Haiku: Yes, I do, thank you.
    Caledonia Heron: k, thanks - had to get that bit of business done since we haven't met before :)


    Eden Haiku: Sure, I noticed you claimed the session Cal.
    Caledonia Heron: yes I did, this session is my responsibility :)
    Gaya Ethaniel: :)
    Eden Haiku: It means you are one of the PaB guardians doesn'it?
    Caledonia Heron: yes, I'm a guardian :)
    Eden Haiku: Nice to meet you ;-)
    Caledonia Heron: nice to meet you too :)
    Gaya Ethaniel: :)


    Caledonia Heron: have you tried out the 9 second practice - the micro-meditation the group engages in ?
    Eden Haiku: Yes, in fact, I have been experimenting with it through the last week. I forget very often but then when I remember to do it, I always experience something interesting.
    Caledonia Heron: we would love to hear about it :)
    Gaya Ethaniel: :)
    Eden Haiku: It reminds me of Gurdjieff «being aware».« État de veille», in French...
    Archmage Atlantis: Yes :)
    Eden Haiku: Well, for in instance, I was in the subway, bored. And I noticed this young girl standing. I wrote an haiku about her. Let me see if I remember. Cause I just took a mental note and it was a few days ago.
    Gaya Ethaniel: :)
    Caledonia Heron: great!


    Gaya Ethaniel guesses how Eden came to choose her last name ... :)
    Caledonia Heron: lol, I was thinking that too
    Eden Haiku: I was counting the syllables on my hands in the subway, someone noticed, now I am trying to remember the first verse...
    Gaya Ethaniel: :D
    Caledonia Heron: no worries, it will come
    Gaya Ethaniel nods.
    Eden Haiku: Yes, here I am I think. «A young Chinese girl/With long strawberry blond hair/Riding the subway.»;-)
    Archmage Atlantis: Haiku are an interesting art form
    Gaya Ethaniel reads and counts ... folding her fingers.
    Caledonia Heron: nice :) being aware - it's interesting it has a phrase in other languages :)
    Eden Haiku: I heard yesterday that on Twitter people are writing 140 characters short stories...
    Gaya Ethaniel nods ... Googles 'Gurdjieff'
    Eden Haiku: I am not sure if «being aware» is the good translation though. I read Gurdjieff in French so...
    Gaya Ethaniel: On wikipedia, it says 'self-awareness' http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/G._I._Gurdjieff -- is this the right person Eden?
    Eden Haiku: It meant something like stopping to act like machines and remembering we are beings. Same as PaB, in essence I guess. But the play part here is important. I have been enjoying a lot the «onigokko» running meditations...
    Gaya Ethaniel: :)
    Eden Haiku: Yes, thaT,s him.
    Caledonia Heron: stop and notice - that's great :)
    Archmage Atlantis: Thank you for the link Gaya
    Gaya Ethaniel: Welcome :)


    Caledonia Heron: hi Archmage :) I did not greet you as I don't see your avatar.
    Gaya Ethaniel: re-bake Arch? I see you ok.
    Archmage Atlantis: re-bake means?
    Eden Haiku: Me too, I see you. Cal is sitting in a blind spot maybe ;-)
    Caledonia Heron: ah! there you are :)
    Gaya Ethaniel: :)
    Gaya Ethaniel: It's amazing how much there is to discover, see, know ... I've never heard of this author.
    Caledonia Heron: thank you - kind of weird to not see you, no reference point :)
    Archmage Atlantis: Just some SL glitch, I suppose
    Eden Haiku: He was quite a character. A friend once lent me about 30 books related to this author. I got informed! I ddi not read the whole lot but I got an idea...
    Gaya Ethaniel: :)
    Caledonia Heron: your haiku is a nice way to express what you see in the moment you stop to notice
    Archmage Atlantis: I agree Cal
    Eden Haiku: Yes, thanks


    Gaya Ethaniel: Do you often write poems in this way?
    Eden Haiku: I staretd the haikus when I satarted PaB about a week ago. And I have been being Eden for a month and a half now ;-)
    Caledonia Heron: wow - fast!
    Eden Haiku: I wrote a few haikus before but it is an art I developped her in PaB. I chose the name on an impulse when I joined SL.
    Gaya Ethaniel: ah ... :)
    Archmage Atlantis: I think it was an excellent choice .... a worth trying myself
    Eden Haiku: You might want to try it: three verses, 5 syllabes/7 syllabes/5 syllabes...
    Caledonia Heron: over time you will have a great collection to document your pab experiences :)
    Eden Haiku: tell us about the little dog on your shoulder Archmage?
    Eden Haiku: ‘Oh,it is a cat ...
    Archmage Atlantis: a baby snow tiger
    Eden Haiku: Wow! Does he have a name?
    Eden Haiku: And what about the purple one?
    Archmage Atlantis: Koya M
    Caledonia Heron: very cute :)
    Gaya Ethaniel: :)
    Eden Haiku: Oh, I'M seeing the names now. How funny!
    Archmage Atlantis: Just my familiars :)
    Eden Haiku: Yes, I'M seeing Koya very well now. I still have trouble with the camera...
    Caledonia Heron: camera skills take a while
    Gaya Ethaniel nods.
    Archmage Atlantis: Camera skills still elude me - as does typing and spelling :)
    Caledonia Heron: lol, well you're logged in and here, so that's a big plus :)


    Caledonia Heron: do you have a 9sec experience to share Archmage?
    Eden Haiku: Is there a trick not to type ∑∑∑∑∑∑ or ßßßßßß on chat when you move the camera?
    Archmage Atlantis: Agree, this is a special experience
    Caledonia Heron: since we have not met before I'm interested on your perspective of the activity
    Archmage Atlantis: Mine also is a poem
    Caledonia Heron: great, let's hear your poem!
    Archmage Atlantis: Not skilled however
    Archmage Atlantis: ok
    Caledonia Heron: no worries, a friendly place :)
    Gaya Ethaniel: :)
    Archmage Atlantis: Children of the White Frogs The white frogs no longer sing I took a picture of the last one More beige than white he was Old, Dying Their tadpoles grew up in the rain It is dry now There are tiny white frogs on the walls They have found us unworthy
    Archmage Atlantis: I live in SW FL on the edge of the Everglades
    Eden Haiku: How interesting Arch mage!
    Gaya Ethaniel: Writing poem is a meditative practice for you too Arch?
    Caledonia Heron: ahhh, I get it better now .... I have this ache when I consider the destruction of our ecosystem, the eco-circles we are devastating
    Eden Haiku: «More beige than white he was/Old, dying» is very moving. Simple.
    Gaya Ethaniel: :)


    Archmage Atlantis: I started writing poetry again when I began coming to PaB :)
    Eden Haiku: Poetry is a nice way to record time.
    Caledonia Heron: perhaps we should collect those pieces people are willing to contribute and place on the wiki :)
    Gaya Ethaniel nods :)
    Archmage Atlantis: I would like that :)
    Eden Haiku: I like the fact that you are recording the devastation through what you observe in the Everglades.
    Caledonia Heron: such an important eco-system
    Archmage Atlantis: A lot of interesting people with interesting thought come here
    Caledonia Heron: have you lived there long? I'm sure the changes over time are marked
    Eden Haiku: My friend Aztlan who was here suggested a kind of game:« It would be could if...»
    Archmage Atlantis: to hear from them in that fashion would be wonderful
    Archmage Atlantis: Off and on since conception, 58 years
    Archmage Atlantis: And yes much has changed
    Archmage Atlantis: Now we have pythons breeding in the glades
    Caledonia Heron: I read about that
    Archmage Atlantis: They fight with the alligators
    Archmage Atlantis: Trying to eat each other
    Caledonia Heron: goodness
    Caledonia Heron: mortal combat
    Gaya Ethaniel nods. What a sight ...
    Archmage Atlantis: Good way to put it
    Archmage Atlantis: There are pictures in the papers
    Archmage Atlantis: Probably on the net also


    Eden Haiku: It would be could if/Pythons breeding in the glades/Would shake us awake
    Gaya Ethaniel: Whenever I think about environmental issues, I feel pretty pesimistic ... I think it's likely that humans will self-destruct.
    Archmage Atlantis: Nice Eden
    Eden Haiku: Here, in the Laurentians , we had bears. We saw one on our lawn at our country house.
    Caledonia Heron: distinct possibility Gaya
    Gaya Ethaniel: Humans are interesting creatures ...
    Archmage Atlantis: Actually a black bear walked through our backyard last week :)
    Eden Haiku: The fisrt time it ever happens. The bears were looking for food. Too much rain during the summer months. No berries in the woods.
    Gaya Ethaniel: Hope you didn't engage in a mortal comabit in y our backyard Arch :P
    Eden Haiku: I guess it is unusaul to have bears in your backyard Arch?
    Archmage Atlantis: No, but the cats were freaked
    Gaya Ethaniel: Sorry a bad joke ... I just had a funny image in my head when you said it.
    Eden Haiku: The coyotes and dogs were howling here.


    Caledonia Heron: it's like everything is disrupted
    Gaya Ethaniel nods.
    Caledonia Heron: which disrupts me
    Gaya Ethaniel nods nods.
    Eden Haiku: And we are pretending nothing is going on aren't we?
    Caledonia Heron: it feels like it
    Eden Haiku: You are a scientist Cal?
    Caledonia Heron: interested in science :)
    Caledonia Heron: view things from science
    Gaya Ethaniel: oh, thought you were a scientist too Cal :)
    Gaya Ethaniel: or a spacewalker :P
    Caledonia Heron: lol, trying not to wear a label :)
    Gaya Ethaniel: :D
    Eden Haiku: I see. Scientist may find solutions but the eco problem is everybody's problem isn'it?
    Caledonia Heron: indeed Eden
    Archmage Atlantis: Nothing wrong with labels as long as they are one's own choosing, imho :)
    Eden Haiku: Yes, labels. I hate them too. But they are like badges we can wear in SL aren't they?
    Caledonia Heron: sure, labels are fine, useful for sorting, and ways to meet and affiliate in SL - I was kind of teasing with you a bit :)
    Gaya Ethaniel: :)
    Archmage Atlantis: grins


    Gaya Ethaniel: I'm afraid I have to run. Have a good day!
    Eden Haiku: ;)

    Eden Haiku: Or he is teasing us....
    Archmage Atlantis: He was here when I got here, RL must have called
    Caledonia Heron: lol, perhaps
    Eden Haiku: Making a sort of pyschological test on us...
    Caledonia Heron: psyching us out :)
