    The Guardian for this meeting was SophiaSharon Larnia. The comments are by SophiaSharon Larnia.

    This time slot is usually well populated - it is on a Saturday at 1pm SLT, a more-or-less good time for many PaB attendees in Europe and the States. For the first time since I have been a guardian, I sat alone for 15 minutes and listened to the birds in the PaB pavilion mimic the ones out of my windows at home. Then I was joined by Yakuzza and Bertrtam - who were getting ready for the Malta retreat as we spoke - and Magic and Agatha, and later Arabella found time (!!!) to attend after picking up PaB members from the airport in Malta. During this short session, I think people were thinking of the traveling coming up, and less on contemplative topics. I mentioned a couple things that could become topics (but did not try as hard as I could have), but no one bit! Happy Travels, Yakuzza and Bertram! ;)

    SophiaSharon Larnia: didnt realize how many europeans come to the 1pm session!
    Agatha Macbeth: Hello Magic
    Agatha Macbeth: Most of us I think...
    Agatha Macbeth: No tea tonight Yaku?
    SophiaSharon Larnia: I see you switched to beer Yakuzza, instead of tea, getting ready for the trip?
    Bertram Jacobus: yes. here it is 10 pm, quite a nice time ...
    Yakuzza Lethecus: hehe, i visited the pub ealier :)
    Agatha Macbeth: :)
    SophiaSharon Larnia: anybody have anything they want to discuss??

    Agatha Macbeth: (Just going to mention that)
    SophiaSharon Larnia: lol Bert
    SophiaSharon Larnia: in the states its called the head, i dont know what its called there
    Bertram Jacobus: it looks like yaku here only drinks steaming drinks :o)
    Yakuzza Lethecus is entering a non mindfull nervous state of blurry questioning my readyness for the trip :)
    Bertram Jacobus: "the head" ? hot beer ? :-)
    SophiaSharon Larnia understands that
    SophiaSharon Larnia: no bert the frothy part on top
    Agatha Macbeth: Should help Yaku :)
    Agatha Macbeth: We call it that in the UK too Soph
    SophiaSharon Larnia: lol
    SophiaSharon Larnia: about being nervous, youre going to be around like thinkers, it is special just for that reason alone
    Agatha Macbeth: Depends on what they're thinking I guess...
    SophiaSharon Larnia: true, everyone is different, but open to listen... many are not like that
    Agatha Macbeth: At least it will be warm
    SophiaSharon Larnia: yes! and beautiful!
    Agatha Macbeth: Mmm
    Yakuzza Lethecus: food isn´t a good idea for the plane right ?
    Bertram Jacobus: food ? i´ll take two packages with cookies with me lol ... ;-)
    Bertram Jacobus: oh
    SophiaSharon Larnia laughs ... and thinks of eating on the plane during the 90 secs.
    Bertram Jacobus: :o)
    SophiaSharon Larnia: my travel experience is limited but I'm always taken aback by the sense of humanity when I go to the airport etc
    Agatha Macbeth: You mean so many people Soph?
    SophiaSharon Larnia: yes, so many people
    Agatha Macbeth: And all different...
    SophiaSharon Larnia: all with their own particular story
    SophiaSharon Larnia: all those threads
    Agatha Macbeth: I'll bet!
    Agatha Macbeth: So much beaurocracy to deal with though
    SophiaSharon Larnia: yes, sadly, most of it for basic safety
    Agatha Macbeth: Not to mention security
    Agatha Macbeth: Yes
    Agatha Macbeth: It's been so much worse since 9/11 of course
    SophiaSharon Larnia: nods
    Bertram Jacobus: safety ! they don´t know how to get that ! and it´s an illusion moreover (!) - who can do that best may be are the people in israel - THEY have intelligent methods (!) ...
    Agatha Macbeth: Well in Israel, they have had lots of practice, sadly
    Agatha Macbeth: More than us even
    Bertram Jacobus: but not only sadly, also impressive. they go totally diferent ways with their methods
    Agatha Macbeth: Mmm
    SophiaSharon Larnia: what you are speaking of occurs in many places, not just isreal
    Bertram Jacobus: for example the don´t search luggage, they focus on people
    Bertram Jacobus: (i meant investigating luggage can be quite dull) ... ;-)
    Agatha Macbeth: Depends whose luggage it is Bert ;-)
    SophiaSharon Larnia: not to mention your shoes.... Yak, wear shoes easy to take off :)
    SophiaSharon Larnia: lol
    Agatha Macbeth: And hold your nose :)
    SophiaSharon Larnia: changing your location does change you perspective on things
