    This Guardian meeting was attended by Calvino, Eden, Eliza, Eos, genesis, Lia, Maxine, stevenaia, Riddle, and Zen.  Log posted and commented by Calvino.

    Things got underway - the standout feature was a spectacular party dress and outfit worn by Eden.  It was worth the price of admission :)

    Eliza Madrigal: Morning Cal!
    Calvino Rabeni: Good morning !
    Eliza Madrigal: Hi Maxine! :)
    Maxine Walden: hi, Eliza and Cal
    Eliza Madrigal: All well? Are you relaxed and refreshed after the holidays?
    Maxine Walden: actually, yes, quite refreshed, how about you>
    Eliza Madrigal: yes I feel a bit energized I think...
    Eliza Madrigal: Things don't get back to normal here until tomorrow so we'll see :)
    Maxine Walden: ah, right, back to school and perhaps to work
    Eliza Madrigal nods
    Eliza Madrigal: Hi Eden!
    Maxine Walden: hi Eden
    Eliza Madrigal: great outfit :)
    Maxine Walden: yes, rather spectacular, Eden
    Eden Haiku: Hi. Thanks.
    Eden Haiku: Yesterday's writers party outfit...
    Eliza Madrigal: some wild writers
    Eliza Madrigal giggles
    Eden Haiku: ;-)
    Eliza Madrigal: Hi Eos! :)
    Maxine Walden: hi, Eos
    Eden Haiku: Good morning Eos!
    Zen Arado: Hi All
    Eden Haiku: Hello Zen! Nice colors!
    Eos Amaterasu: Good morning, Eden, Max, Eli, Zen, Cal
    Maxine Walden: hi, Zen
    Zen Arado: thanks
    Lia Rikugun: hello everybody, happy new year!
    Maxine Walden: hi Lia
    Eden Haiku: Happy new Year Lia!
    Eliza Madrigal: Hi Zen, Lia :) Happy New Year!
    Zen Arado: brightened myself up for the new year
    Eos Amaterasu: Hi Lia, HNY!
    Maxine Walden: yes, Happy Yew Year to everyone
    Eden Haiku: Nice Zen ;-)
    Eliza Madrigal: 'always look on the briiight side of life' :::whistles::::
    Eden Haiku: I like the glasses too...
    Eden Haiku: Chnaged your presciption? ;-)
    Eliza Madrigal: :))

    There are ways we affect one another's lives - ideas taken from the group and acted upon at some length.

    Calvino Rabeni: Eden, I did the "100 accomplishments" list - thanks for the instigation
    Eos Amaterasu: In itself your first accomplishment of the New Year?
    Eden Haiku: Oh! Great, Calvino.
    Maxine Walden: sounds like quite a task, Calvino
    Zen Arado: you found 100?
    Calvino Rabeni: Number 100 was "finished this list" :)
    Eliza Madrigal: :)
    Zen Arado: great !
    Eliza Madrigal got to 60, admittedly, but they were an inspiring 60
    Calvino Rabeni: It wasn't hard up to about 85, then I was in the home stretch
    Eliza Madrigal is not attached to results...heheh
    Eden Haiku: ;-)
    Zen Arado: have to try it
    Eden Haiku: And did the New Year resolution came easily to you?
    Calvino Rabeni: :)
    Eliza Madrigal: To me? Yes, thus far definitely
    Calvino Rabeni: Really, I should start doing that one of these years :)
    Zen Arado: it is the exercise of doing it that os good
    Eliza Madrigal: Well it isn't like 1. walk the dog more, 2. buy a dog... it is more a framework... like we go into the 90 seconds with sometimes :)
    Eos Amaterasu wonders about Eliza's sequencing... :-)
    Eliza Madrigal: For me it is 'right time- expansiveness within limitations'....hehe... sounds like a corporate slogan I guess
    Zen Arado: sounds good Eliza :)
    Zen Arado: our new slogan
    Calvino Rabeni: On zen's idea - I will use it with an exercise like the "100 words" homework from stim's workshop - to let the accomplishments soak in
    Eliza Madrigal: hmm
    Calvino Rabeni: That is the 2nd step actually realizing they were done
    Zen Arado: so long as it doesn't boost our egos
    Calvino Rabeni: Objectivity
    Calvino Rabeni: and being alive
    Calvino Rabeni: funny combination?
    Eden Haiku: No the point is to feel good enough about yourself you then dare to make a challenging resolution for the New Year.
    Zen Arado: remember Ozymandias !
    Eden Haiku: Ozymandias?
    Eliza Madrigal: Hi Gen! :)
    Calvino Rabeni: Oprah is often about stoking up self-esteem
    Eos Amaterasu: Hy Gen
    Lia Rikugun: hello gen
    Eden Haiku: Hello Genesis.
    genesis Zhangsun: Hi Everyone!
    Eliza Madrigal: Hi Riddle :)
    Maxine Walden: hi, gen and riddle
    Lia Rikugun: hello riddle
    Riddle Sideways: Hi
    Zen Arado: found on a scrap of paper in the desert - look upon my mighty works and tremble
    Eden Haiku: Good morning Riddle,
    Zen Arado: Hi Gen, Riddle
    Eos Amaterasu: Thing is to note both positive and negative arrogance
    Eliza Madrigal: hm
    Eos Amaterasu: negative arrogance: self-absorption in "how pathetic am I"
    Calvino Rabeni: yes
    Zen Arado: yes
    Eliza Madrigal: yes "I am the *most* pathetic"
    Eos Amaterasu: so more objective, yes

    That "ego" talk often feels a bit heavy - so naturally, levity soon appears.

    Eliza Madrigal giggles
    Zen Arado: eog looking for importance
    Eden Haiku: Eog is a new guest here ;-)
    Zen Arado: either pos or neg will do
    Eden Haiku: I like Eog!
    Maxine Walden: Eog is a mixed up character
    Eos Amaterasu: long lost relative :-)
    Eliza Madrigal smiles
    Eden Haiku: Yes, a confused one. Too much Confucius reading, poor guy.
    Zen Arado: :)
    Maxine Walden: right...scrambled a bit
    Eliza Madrigal: wobbly
    Eden Haiku: Is he male or female? We should ask Archmage!
    Eliza Madrigal: :)
    Maxine Walden: a bit of both, I would imagine, Eden
    Calvino Rabeni: Eog definitely contains rum, during the holidays
    Eos Amaterasu nogs
    Zen Arado: like egg nog ?
    Eliza Madrigal prefers brandy
    Calvino Rabeni: Yes a lot like that
    Eliza Madrigal: okay... lots of silliness

    OK, playtime's over for now, according to two simultaneous remarks.

    Eliza Madrigal: but do we have a guardian topic today?
    Calvino Rabeni: * Business for Guardians *
    Calvino Rabeni: ... hic
    Eliza Madrigal: :)
    Riddle Sideways: o thought that was your topic
    Eos Amaterasu: GoC for Dummies
    Eden Haiku: ;-)
    Eliza Madrigal: usually that's my topic, but hm
    Zen Arado: no I am the expert
    Eliza Madrigal: Thanks Gen, for organizing the party with Tarmel and others. It was great fun

    Eden knows how to play; also when to get down to the business at hand.  A recent previous session discussed the PaB group itself, reflectively. What followed was an active, somewhat chaotic mix of ideas and issues about the PaB group.  As is often the case, the ideas were proposed, touched, tossed around like a mixed vegetable salad, lightly sauteed rather than thoroughly cooked.

    • Whether the PaB Pavilion is being adequately staffed.
    • Whether there should be different expectations about entering and leaving sessions.
    • Focus and themes, often thought of as being in tension with creativity and play.
    • The relevance of spontaneous non-topical talk and casual "chit chat".
    • Being aware of newcomers' impressions, and facilitation.
    • Whether the character of the group has changed over time.
    • The subjective feeling or "energy" of the experience of attending PaB sessions, and whether it indicates anything "objective" about the state of the group.
    • The character of the PaB Pavilion itself.
    • Being (or coming back to) "experience".
    • Whether / how guardians should be directive and/or "push".
    • Whether /how different-seeming perspectives - like political philosophy - can be brought into PaB.

    Eden Haiku: I read the last posted chat log. have you? Doug seems to have concerns.
    genesis Zhangsun: sure!
    Calvino Rabeni: Yes, I was at that session
    genesis Zhangsun: yes could you say more Eden?
    Zen Arado: what about?
    Eden Haiku: yes, the party was such a good idea Genesis!
    Riddle Sideways: was good idea, but I missed it
    Riddle Sideways: need to repeat it
    Eliza Madrigal: http://playasbeing.wik.is/Chat_Logs/2010/01/2010.01.02_19:00_-_Working_with_Solidity
    genesis Zhangsun: nice to hang out and let loose some time and yes maybe we can repeat it
    Eden Haiku: One of the concerns was about people being late for the sessions. Pema answered he liked the idea of a 24 hours coffee place.
    Zen Arado: sounds good
    Zen Arado: place to meet more infromally
    Eden Haiku: I like the ebb and flow of the sessions very much.
    Eliza Madrigal: It seems a good idea in many ways, but does it seem doug is talking about more containment than less...
    Eliza Madrigal: like a definite structure for theme sessions in order to stay on track
    Riddle Sideways: the village has a bar
    Eliza Madrigal: it is difficult
    Eden Haiku: No, I think Pema meant the PaB sessions would become a 24hour open space...
    Eliza Madrigal: Ahh
    Eden Haiku: With all the coming and going it implies...
    Riddle Sideways: some of us remember doing 6+ hour sessions
    Riddle Sideways: very tiring
    genesis Zhangsun: so Pema is for the openness- the dropping in and out and Doug is not?
    Maxine Walden: Steve just dropped in
    Eliza Madrigal: :) Hi Steve
    Zen Arado: Hi teve
    stevenaia Michinaga: I often drop
    Eliza Madrigal: Seems to me Pema is for many options
    Lia Rikugun: hello steve
    Eliza Madrigal: ?
    Maxine Walden: good to see you, Steve
    Eos Amaterasu: Pema Pera: one option is to acquire everybody to come in on time, at the hour; but I like the idea of a neighborhood cafe, where you can drop in at any time
    stevenaia Michinaga: mornign (for me)
    stevenaia Michinaga: morning
    stevenaia Michinaga: and happy New year
    Eos Amaterasu: I think Pema meant didn't mean 24-hour sessions, but like cafe, session where you can drop in
    Eliza Madrigal: Happy New Year, Steve :)
    stevenaia Michinaga: better wait till ppl have rezzed
    genesis Zhangsun: I think Doug was speaking out of some frustration about what happened during our last theme session on PaB and Sustainability
    genesis Zhangsun: it was a large group and the discussion was rather unfocused
    Eos Amaterasu: Can u say more, Gen?
    genesis Zhangsun: I think this is just part of the experience...
    Maxine Walden: yes, please, gen
    Eden Haiku: One night, I was checking if I could access the PaB pavilion through Sparkle so I went there at 11pM SLT , expecting there would be no one.
    genesis Zhangsun: and I feel that the more focused the theme session leaders can become, setting the parameters of the topic the easier it is to have a focused discussion
    genesis Zhangsun: at the moment I think Doug and I are still feeling out a very broad topic
    Eden Haiku: I was surprised Pila rezzed there after a few minutes,. He helped me with my settings. I could disconnect and relogg with him telling me if it worked. It was a very nice experience. And I had the chance to wish him Happy New Year!
    genesis Zhangsun: in my experience "theme sessions" seem to work better when the topic is narrow
    Eos Amaterasu: I think there's two aspects: session focus, and returning to direct, personal experience of PaB both in talking about and doing during the sessions
    Eos Amaterasu: they might be slightly different aspects
    Calvino Rabeni: I think, both open and focused have their place, the question is, when to do them
    Eos Amaterasu: the themes are pretty broad to begin with
    Eliza Madrigal: it can be difficult to do even in a workshop setting rather than PaB, and yes perhaps it Sustainability topic is just beginning to be defined. Sometimes in a workshop a note is prepared saying that "comments/ questions will be welcomed at the half hr, etc..."
    Eliza Madrigal: Would that help?
    Eos Amaterasu: Yes, having clear protocol for theme sessions is good
    genesis Zhangsun: yes ELiza perhaps
    Eos Amaterasu: Dialog for twenty minutes; then multilogue
    genesis Zhangsun: Eos would you like to say more about returning to experience?
    Calvino Rabeni: Some of the PaB sessions consist of nearly 100% chit chat, however, no presence OR theme
    Eden Haiku: I strongly disagree with that.
    Zen Arado: different ppl want different things
    Eos Amaterasu: Well, I think it's a personal responsibility to come back to personal experience - although it may be difficult, especially with big sessions
    Maxine Walden: Agree with a clear protocol; also just thinking of what I also bring as an individual to each session
    Maxine Walden: Just thinking that sometimes when I am rested I can be mor open and appreciate it in others, like several topics being discussed at the same time; at other times, when I am more closed down or fatigued, then such openness seems disturbing, so for me the issue is my state of mind
    Eliza Madrigal nods
    Eden Haiku: I meant the chit chat being 90% of PaB sessions.
    genesis Zhangsun: I completely agree with that Maxine...often when I am "bored" I am impatient, tired or just "bored" with myself :)
    Maxine Walden: yes, gen, know what you mean!
    Calvino Rabeni: Maybe, Eden, but how can you tell - it doesn't seem to reference experience
    Eos Amaterasu: One thread is to see how something said or expressed can be put in experiential terms that can be done right there and then, in the 90 secs, for example
    Eos Amaterasu: 90 secs as micro lab
    Eden Haiku: I know I like PaB a lot, even if you call it 100% chit chat.
    Maxine Walden: yes, Eos
    genesis Zhangsun: I agree! I do notice that at times people forget to observe the 90 seconds
    Eos Amaterasu: Often the people who complain about lack of it :-)
    Eliza Madrigal: :) @ Eden
    Eden Haiku: ;-) Eos
    Eliza Madrigal: I definitely don't think we are 90-100 % chit cat, but there is the occasional session...
    Eos Amaterasu: that quality of rest Maxine mentioned - ideally one rediscovers that in PaB session
    Calvino Rabeni: I didn't mean overall, just certain sessions that seem to "forget"
    Riddle Sideways: please to remember PaB is 33% play :)
    Eden Haiku: Right!
    Eos Amaterasu ponders 33% "as"
    stevenaia Michinaga: Play=creativity
    Eden Haiku: Ad is the most profound of it...
    Eden Haiku: *As
    Eliza Madrigal: yes, play implies a bit of purposeful engagement
    Calvino Rabeni: yes
    Eos Amaterasu: "though he thinks he's in a play, he is anyway" - Beatles - :-)
    Zen Arado: I find it difficult to stop 'old'ways of thinking
    Eden Haiku: tell us more Zen?
    Zen Arado: so I found the theme session so frustratingly unstructured
    Riddle Sideways: yes, stoppingis hard... modifying is easier
    Zen Arado: but I learned to keep quiet
    Eden Haiku: This session is not posted yet I think?
    Calvino Rabeni: Instead of trying to stop something, trying to start something different, is an alternative focus
    Calvino Rabeni: That is the creativity part
    Zen Arado: I have studied a lot of political philosophy and t is such a different outlook
    Zen Arado: methods so different
    Calvino Rabeni: Indeed different - have you been looking for a way to bring it into PaB?
    Zen Arado: and structured
    Zen Arado: no - heven't mentioned it really
    Zen Arado: got a bit disillusioned with logical thought in the end
    Calvino Rabeni: Every philosophy has its awareness component, that at least is compatible with PaB, if not the structures specifically
    Zen Arado: pol phil is so full of -isms though
    Eliza Madrigal: There are *many* times when it all falls into line beautifully... when there is, as Gaya used a phrase, an 'initial push' which then can give a bit of focus and momentum to the rest of the session. In some ways it might just be outining the format more directly/obviously
    Eliza Madrigal: I think we can't forget those occasions when we go through a bit of turbulence here and there :)
    genesis Zhangsun: and for all of us to patient :)
    Eliza Madrigal: yes
    genesis Zhangsun: and to practice on patience out of the sessions :)
    genesis Zhangsun: or just practice in general
    Zen Arado: painful to let go of our precious ways of thinking
    Maxine Walden: staying open, yes patient as gen suggests...can iron out the wrinkles of the 'isms' sometimes
    Eos Amaterasu: paticence is already holding some kind of bigger space
    genesis Zhangsun: I think so Eos!
    Maxine Walden: indeed, Eos.
    Eos Amaterasu: *patience
    Calvino Rabeni: OK, a question - on a feeling level, for the "old timers", has your experience changed over time about the quality of the PaB sessions?
    Eos Amaterasu: old timer = GoC > 1 year?
    Calvino Rabeni: Yes
    Eden Haiku: Went to the window for an intake of RL: it is snowing. It is so beautiful!
    Eos Amaterasu: Ditto snowing here in RL
    stevenaia Michinaga: looks at watch...old time?
    Eden Haiku: ;-)
    genesis Zhangsun: patience can provide the shift from "something needs to happen" to "its all okay the way it is"
    Calvino Rabeni: Yes, but patience can mask objective changes and conditions
    Eos Amaterasu: to "it's bigger than the way it seems to be"
    Zen Arado: amusing to hear ppl hankering for 'the good old days' in Pab :)
    Riddle Sideways: I may be old, but quality of the PaB sessions change every time
    Eliza Madrigal: yes Zen :)
    Eos Amaterasu: 'twas ever thus
    Eden Haiku: yesterday, I poofed out of a session. Too much focus for me ;-)
    genesis Zhangsun: what do you mean Calvino?
    Maxine Walden: Guess I am an old-timer: I find my experience of the PaB sessions really has more to do with my state of mind, perhaps whether i am patient or not than the PaB session itself
    Riddle Sideways: there is little to no sameness
    stevenaia Michinaga: it is nice to think back at some of the topics I remember we discussed, including patience
    Zen Arado: could resurrect some old topics?
    Eliza Madrigal: I'm a bit uncomfortable whenever the discussion is 'that over there and everyone else' isn't like it should be....
    Calvino Rabeni: If the session is a combination of the states of mind of the participants, it may change over time
    stevenaia Michinaga: but to answer Cal's questions, the change in perception is person and varying, and is not necessarilly related to the quality of the sessions.. for me
    Maxine Walden: But when I am goc, I do find that I can get a bit worried, as if I have to 'do' something to make the session 'better' etc.
    Calvino Rabeni: Basically, people don't have same quality of beginners mind, perhaps
    Lia Rikugun: me too maxine ;)
    Zen Arado: me too
    Zen Arado: my need to control :)
    Maxine Walden: But to generally trust that we all are earnest, wishing to share and to grow...that helps in the long run, even when I am a fatigued goc
    Eden Haiku: Our empathy is very important also.
    stevenaia Michinaga: the gemtle puch towards "the subject" sometimes isn;t enough and you may jsut ahve to watch and see
    stevenaia Michinaga: gentle
    stevenaia Michinaga: push
    Maxine Walden: yes, Eden, and yes, Steve
    Eden Haiku: Thought you meant Punch Steve;-)
    Calvino Rabeni: What accounted for the existence of those very long sessions, for instance?
    Calvino Rabeni: Some kind of excitement in the air?
    stevenaia Michinaga: sometimes we are a flock of birds in formation, other times we are herding cats for an hour
    Zen Arado: but sometimes play is good - like what do they call allowing free flow of ideas?
    Calvino Rabeni: And if they don't happen, what does that indicate?
    Eden Haiku: What a beautiful image Steve!
    Riddle Sideways: in our case ... one of the new members
    Riddle Sideways: was just doing the experiment of living in PaB all day
    Riddle Sideways: and we just stayed
    Eden Haiku: Best PaB moments are like a fock of birds in formation yes!
    Riddle Sideways: there was no pre-planning
    Eden Haiku: And whatever the topic or no-topic.
    Eliza Madrigal: a thrill of initial contact in some ways perhaps
    Calvino Rabeni: Yes
    Eden Haiku: In happens in both.
    Maxine Walden: the spontaneity Riddle mush have been wonderful
    Zen Arado: brainstorming
    Eos Amaterasu: spacestorming
    Riddle Sideways: there is much to be said for both planned and spontanious
    Calvino Rabeni: There is a different energetic quality of newness compared to familiarity.
    Eliza Madrigal: yes, finding the balance between too much control or letting time leak away, in a sense...
    Calvino Rabeni: Groups need renewal sometimes
    Riddle Sideways: wwe should have both
    Eden Haiku: One bird leading for a while then another bird for a while than another...alll going in the same direction.
    Eliza Madrigal nods. I thought the party was energizing... nice to change the setting sometimes
    Riddle Sideways: Goc sessions where I had a topic and many that I just let the flow go
    Maxine Walden: we may be seeing the value of inclusiveness right now, and balance
    Zen Arado: maybe we shold encourage quiet pppl more?
    Calvino Rabeni: Can the pavillion design be change occasionally?
    Eden Haiku: Why???
    Eliza Madrigal: and we may be missing some great things going on that a year from now people will be complaining arent there? :)
    Zen Arado: I often see ppl who hardly say anything all meeting
    Eos Amaterasu: pavilion size etc can be changed on the fly
    Calvino Rabeni: Remember the place before the PaB pavilion?
    Calvino Rabeni: Having different environments evokes different feelings
    Calvino Rabeni: a little variety can be stimulating
    Eos Amaterasu: I see the Village as place for that
    Zen Arado: I don't like the cold starkness and snow I admit
    Riddle Sideways: there are at least3 ppl that don't talk if there are more then 3 at a session
    Eos Amaterasu: ?
    Eliza Madrigal: sure, again back to different kinds of sessions and such. I don't think we need to change the pavillion
    Calvino Rabeni: Zen, agree
    Eden Haiku: Variety in the people is quite enough for me.
    Riddle Sideways: but are great chatters individually
    Zen Arado: yes some talk a ot in smaller group
    Eliza Madrigal: different settings at times for different reasons... like this is more what I was thinking of
    Calvino Rabeni: Cozyness of the meeting place is conducive to different qualities
    Riddle Sideways: sorry folks, I have a huge lag today
    Calvino Rabeni: ELiza yes i agree
    Eden Haiku: ;-) Riddle
    Maxine Walden: can be frustrating, Riddle to have such lag
    Eliza Madrigal: This week a few people expressed that when everyone falls silent for a long time it can be very confusing for newcomers... other end of the spectrum from herding cats I guess :)
    Eden Haiku: waving through the lag
    Eliza Madrigal: http://playasbeing.wik.is/Chat_Logs/2009/12/2009.12.31_13%3a00_-_Insides%2c_Outsides%2c_Depths_-_Wild_Things
    Eos Amaterasu: the asynchrony of lag has a bit of that birds flying, or frogs peeping, quality
    Eden Haiku: But these long silences can feel like a matrix where ideas are being born also.
    Eos Amaterasu: as well as play :-)
    Eliza Madrigal: yes I agree
    Riddle Sideways: we have had 100,000 word sessions about silence
    Eliza Madrigal: maybe we might just be sensitive to IMing a newcomer
    Riddle Sideways: and 25 word sessions about all
    Maxine Walden: good idea, Eliza
    Eden Haiku: chcuckles to what Riidle just wrote
    Calvino Rabeni: Let me ask - if you were at that specific session - what was your experience?
    Eliza Madrigal: I was there. We often do that at Stim's sessions... don't know why :)
    Calvino Rabeni: and the quality of your experience ?
    Calvino Rabeni: I was there also
    Eliza Madrigal: It was a nice session, actually, when taken on the whole :)
    Eden Haiku: I like these long silences, very much.
    Calvino Rabeni: I meant about the long pause, was it relaxing or something else?
    Eliza Madrigal: For me it was a meditative exercize of not always intervening :)
    Eden Haiku: I understand Eliza's concern about the newcomers though. IM seems a good solution from the GoC.
    Calvino Rabeni: Ok as an exercise, but the feeling ?
    Eden Haiku: I like these long silences beacuse I feel very much conncted to the real people behind the avatars in RL then.
    Calvino Rabeni: I'm being a little persistent about the difference , I know
    Maxine Walden: It may be, Cal, that if one is feeling quiet and spacious internally, the experience of external silence is one of openness and quiet opportunity; but if one is feeling otherwise inside, or looking to the outside for guidance then the silence could feel disorienting
    Eden Haiku: But then some silences are heavy, others are pregnant with possibilities.
    Eliza Madrigal: yes my feeling is distinctly from the view of someone receptive to appreciate whatever was going on or not
    Calvino Rabeni: My feeling of that particular silence, was heavyness
    Eliza Madrigal: that day especially, so I can't speak objectively really, except that I can understand what a new person might feel
    Calvino Rabeni: It may be the newcomer felt that - or multiple people did
    Zen Arado: silence is very disturbing for ppl who don't meditat I think
    genesis Zhangsun: and even for those who do :)
    genesis Zhangsun: well I have to get going!
    genesis Zhangsun: thanks everyone!
    Maxine Walden: Aware the hour is over; I will have to go. Appreciated the conversation...
    genesis Zhangsun: take care
    Zen Arado: we forget that maybe
    Lia Rikugun: bye gen
    Eden Haiku: Bye Genesis!
    Zen Arado: bye Gen
    Maxine Walden: yes, bye as well
    Calvino Rabeni: I'm just suggesting being discriminating about the experience in the moment and acting on that basie
    stevenaia Michinaga: bye Gen
    Lia Rikugun: bye maxine
    Eliza Madrigal: so good manners are good manners.... if someone is at a party and no one is talking to them, you go and ask... see
    Calvino Rabeni: Bye gen and max!
    Eden Haiku: Bye Maxine!
    Eliza Madrigal: Bye Maxine and Genesis :)
    Eliza Madrigal: if someone new I should say
    Eliza Madrigal: *is
    Zen Arado: yes Eliza
    stevenaia Michinaga: questions... were there newcommers at this session, or are we speaking in general
    Calvino Rabeni: There were
    Eliza Madrigal: well, not absolutely newcomers... newish...

    ((Eliza interrupting her own thoughts here to say that newcomer can obviously be someone who has attended several sessions at times and still may feel disoriented. This is something I learned this week rather than something obvious. Wanted to clarify. :)  ))

    Eden Haiku: Good manners yes, being courteous, isn'it part of our guardian duty in general, and as GoC especially?
    Eliza Madrigal: Yes Eden
    Eliza Madrigal: Sometimes we have blindspots and it is good to be reminded
    Calvino Rabeni: yes
