    The Guardian for this meeting was Riddle Sideways. The very few comments are by Riddle Sideways.  But, Riddle is finally getting it posted.  It has been a busy week (or 3) around my circle.

    Yakuzza Lethecus: hey qt
    Qt Core: Hi Yakuzza
    Yakuzza Lethecus: hey storm
    Qt Core: hi Storm
    Yakuzza Lethecus: ice scating on the gras ? :)
    Storm Nordwind: Greetings both :)
    Storm Nordwind: permafrost Yak!
    Yakuzza Lethecus: oh, i should remember that for summer :)
    Yakuzza Lethecus: good morning riddle
    Qt Core: hi Riddle
    Riddle Sideways: good morning all
    Storm Nordwind waves
    Riddle Sideways: had small problems getting this morning moving on time
    Yakuzza Lethecus: oh, quints quantum economics is now on thothica ?
    Riddle Sideways: ah icey, like my daugthers car today
    Yakuzza Lethecus: so cold in california ?
    Riddle Sideways: snow down to 800 feet
    Riddle Sideways: snow falling here too
    Storm Nordwind: And here
    Riddle Sideways: is beautiful to visit
    Qt Core: snow only amove 1000 meters, here, i'm much lower
    Riddle Sideways: those are patches of snow across the landscape?
    Storm Nordwind: Yes they are
    Riddle Sideways: there has been a "Storm" here
    Storm Nordwind: And there is an ice rink available to all Play as Being practitioners
    That explains the ice skating entrances
    Riddle Sideways: ooo, I remember trying to skate last year at Kira
    Riddle Sideways: think I still have skates in inventory
    Riddle Sideways: hard to fall in SL
    Riddle Sideways: does not hard as much
    Storm Nordwind: There's a skate dispenser at the entrance to the rink for aeveryone
    Riddle Sideways: *hurt
    Yakuzza Lethecus: hmm, aren´t we a bit biased about the northern hemisphere ?
    Riddle Sideways: hopefully no ice rink musak
    Yakuzza Lethecus: what tamel might say :P
    Riddle Sideways: sorry, Yak
    Yakuzza Lethecus: hehe, no for me it´s fine :)
    Storm Nordwind: Yes we are Yak. That's just tough luck! ;-P
    Storm Nordwind: But at least we are not imposing any religious tradition on anyone!
    Qt Core: this image of buddhist monks ice skating just popped up in my mind ;-)
    Riddle Sideways: this weekend the bloodmobile outside our temple was playing xmas carols :)
    Storm Nordwind: I should change my outfit perhaps back to what it used to be - I've been meaning to for some time
    Riddle Sideways: yes, storm you always looks so monkish
    Qt Core: not that the idea of bishps or archbishops in "high-uniform" ice skating is bad ;-)
    Storm Nordwind: Excuse me - just going to try something with the pool that I forgot when I installed the ice
    Storm Nordwind: Good - that seems to work!
    Riddle Sideways watches storm majic
    Storm Nordwind: I realized in the middle of the night that if someone wanted the pool to disappear, the ice would still stay!
    Riddle Sideways: Funny thing to realize in the middle of night
    Riddle Sideways: image what that sentence sounds like out of context
    Storm Nordwind: I have to rely on my subconscious to do most of my thinking work for me!
    Riddle Sideways: many people at a party this weekend were doing a simular experiment
    Storm Nordwind: Oh yes? Please continue :)
    Riddle Sideways: the liquid in their glasses went away and the ice cubes remained :)
    Riddle Sideways: Parties are great places to people watch/study
    Riddle Sideways: there was very little (but beautiful) food
    Riddle Sideways: little trays were carried through the crowd
    Riddle Sideways: ppl lined up outside kitchen door
    Riddle Sideways: to attack the next platter
    Riddle Sideways: but pretend not to be doing so
    Riddle Sideways: they pretended to talk of things that matter
    Riddle Sideways: but watched those servers
    Storm Nordwind: Perhaps they couldn't be political hawks, so they were gastronomic hawks instead! ;)
    Riddle Sideways: at least birds of some feather
    Storm Nordwind chuckles
    Storm Nordwind: Such basic desires drive us
    Riddle Sideways: yes, but how some try to cover it
    Riddle Sideways: the illusion that we don't need
    Storm Nordwind: The subtle art of being disingenuous carries over, sadly, into many parts of their life
    Riddle Sideways: the desire to solve world hunger, health, peace, etc. but just want to watch the snow fall
    Storm Nordwind: Oh I think we are allowed to do several of these at the same time. Because we have lofty ideals and actions, it doesn't mean we shoulg forsake fun in the process! Just be honest about it, that's all! :)
    Storm Nordwind: *should
    Riddle Sideways: ah, thatz what I meant "to be honest about it"
    Riddle Sideways: so many are not being honest
    Storm Nordwind: Many cultures, American culture in particular it seems to me, seem to discourage such honesty, or at least not reward it
    Riddle Sideways: In a profit/competition society, what value has honesty?
    Qt Core: even here in old europe there are p;eople believing that having fun, even while doing your work/duty is almost a sin
    Riddle Sideways: Honest Abe's car dealership?
    Riddle Sideways: QT, my boss feels the same way :)
    Storm Nordwind: Those kinds of bosses didn't last long with me around! >;->
    Riddle Sideways: I might not last long around that boss
    Riddle Sideways: but, was thinking about state changes
    Riddle Sideways: like the water to/from ice
    Riddle Sideways: teh state change takes much energy
    Riddle Sideways: then poof
    Riddle Sideways: those elegent people took a lot of energy to change
    Riddle Sideways: then poof, fashioinable lady pulled gown above knees and danced with wuch abandon
    Riddle Sideways: *such
    Riddle Sideways: we are stuck in our track
    Riddle Sideways: then some 15 min gong goes off
    Riddle Sideways: state change
    Storm Nordwind: Keeps us from getting overinvested in worthless things!
    Riddle Sideways: a super saturated solution... then one more molecule... poof
    Riddle Sideways: ... I love my worthless things :D
    Storm Nordwind: Then perhaps they are not worthless!
    Riddle Sideways: ah yes,
    Riddle Sideways: these grey socks are worthless and priceless
    Storm Nordwind: But could you give them away to someone today?
    Riddle Sideways: of course
    Storm Nordwind smiles
    Storm Nordwind: Then you carry them lightly! :))
    Riddle Sideways: what was the last thing you gave away ?
    Storm Nordwind: Materially? All my furniture and my musical equipment...
    Storm Nordwind: Conceptually? My close-mindedness to different ways of looking at reality
    Riddle Sideways wonders what "give away" means spiritally / mentally
    Riddle Sideways: oops, you answered before I could type
    Storm Nordwind smiles
    Storm Nordwind: Emotionally? My ties to my family and country and friends
    Storm Nordwind: Spiritually? My link to one guide so that another could take over
    Riddle Sideways: no fair Storm, you are way too good at this :)
    Storm Nordwind: I am an ordinary person. I simply do extraordinary things. As can we all at some time. :)
    Riddle Sideways: Have been watching my children both do extroordinary things
    Qt Core: (hiding away with mine ideas and things lile linus and his blanket)
    Qt Core: forgot (in ahsme)
    Riddle Sideways: they are still my babies, but they are doing the most amazing things to/in the world
    Yakuzza Lethecus sneaks away, bye everyone
    Qt Core: bye Yak
    Riddle Sideways: funny, how you see yourslef hiding. when the rest of us don't
    Qt Core: hiding in plain sight, the best way
    Riddle Sideways: or keeping your left foot on solid ground while skating away
    Qt Core: (going back to the beginning about people not admitting their real needs/desire claming others needs and desires)
    Riddle Sideways: the golden teather
    Riddle Sideways: the keeping of the facade
    Riddle Sideways: until the joy of the new state overwelms the holding on
    Riddle Sideways: the hoping that the ice rink has hand rails to hold to?
    Storm Nordwind chuckles
    Qt Core: or coshioned ice
    Qt Core: cushioned
    Storm Nordwind: There is a central bandstand and walls around the edges. I may throw snowballs at you though!
    Riddle Sideways: the fear of flying
    Qt Core: throwing snowballs... i love to throw things ;-)
    Riddle Sideways: the fear of being hit with snow balls
    Riddle Sideways: the fear of starting a sentence and getting ADS in the ..
    Storm Nordwind chuckles
    Qt Core: being able to evade them is much more important that throwing them.... especially if you grew up in a neighborough where some nasty kids used to put stones inside the snowballs.,..
    Riddle Sideways: "Adult Distraction Sin...
    Riddle Sideways: or ice balls
    Storm Nordwind: We played a game called "ball tag" at school. That was perfect for practising avoiding or fending off balls with a fist
    Riddle Sideways: I play Aiki dodge ball with the kids class
    Storm Nordwind: Off course there's he instant wrathful karma technique - of catching the snowball with minimal damage and hurling it back again. Has the element of surprise too. They tend not to include many stones after that! :)
    Qt Core: good reflexes
    Storm Nordwind: Yes - still much faster than most people :)
    Qt Core: and a nice touch in grabbing the thing
    Riddle Sideways: sorry folks, but I must go
    Riddle Sideways: please continue
    Storm Nordwind: OK Riddle. So must I
    Qt Core: same here
    Qt Core: so no snoball fight ;-)
    Storm Nordwind: Follow me if you want one!
    Qt Core: no, things to do in rl
