    The Guardian for this meeting was Storm Nordwind. The comments are by Storm Nordwind.

    A pleasant surprise for all as Eden joins us fully once again!

    Storm Nordwind: Good morning Cal
    Calvino Rabeni: Good morning
    Calvino Rabeni: Hi Eden
    Storm Nordwind: Good morning Eden!
    Eden Haiku: Good morning Storm!
    Eden Haiku: Hi Calvino.

    The system I installed in the pavilion that allowed Eden to materialize during her wanderings in India (she had just a text-only Second Life 'viewer') is no longer required.
    Storm Nordwind: Time to remove Eden's shadow!
    Eden Haiku: Thank you so much for this device which enabled me to come to the pavilion Storm!
    Storm Nordwind: My pleasure... it seemed to work - mostly!

    Eden is wearing a sign that says she is back home bit jet-lagged.
    Storm Nordwind: Should we type quieter than usual this morning because of your jet lag? ;)
    Eden Haiku: No, I,m just a bit lagged in my responses...;-)
    Eden Haiku: jet-lag always makes me think of all our bodies according to the Hindu tradition: the physical, the astral, the causal and the supracausal. The fiorts one is already home but it seems the three others are somewhere up in the air...
    Storm Nordwind: Are appearances different for you now you're back from your travels... or just blurry at the moment? ;)
    Eden Haiku: Montreal is very sunny and Spring like, our homne is so colorful and full of light. Everything seems sharp!
    Storm Nordwind: perhaps part of you is still over Europe somewhere and moving out over the ocean slowly!
    Eden Haiku: Typos, typos.,..
    Eden Haiku: Seems Calvino is multitasking...
    Storm Nordwind: Ah... you're still over Greece, over the island of Typos ;)
    Calvino Rabeni: I thought that was "Topos"
    Eden Haiku: Yes, I suppose so...;-)
    Eden Haiku: No more hair Calvino? A new style?
    Calvino Rabeni: Maybe not the ultimate - a phase however

    Catching up with the logs, something has caught Eden's eye.
    Eden Haiku: Have been reading the theme session about the Scribes, what a session!
    Calvino Rabeni: What stands out interesting with the scrbing session, Eden?
    Storm Nordwind stops typing the same question as Cal!
    Eden Haiku: The flying onigokko was a highlight!
    Eden Haiku: I liked the seriousness and the lightness combination.
    Calvino Rabeni: Hmm, I am working on a scribe session today - I wonder how I can work that flying in...
    Eden Haiku: I rarely read the scribes in fact.
    Calvino Rabeni: A picture I suppose
    Eden Haiku: But maybe I will now. Yes, pictures are helpful Calvino.

    A little wiki editing problem hopefully resolved.
    Calvino Rabeni: Lately I have a "resistance" to doing it - when I press Enter to delete text while editing, all the rest of the text disappears
    Eden Haiku: Hey Yakuzza!
    Yakuzza Lethecus: hey everyone
    Yakuzza Lethecus: EDEN!
    Yakuzza Lethecus: :)
    Calvino Rabeni: Storm do you know how to edit effectively?
    Storm Nordwind: Hi Yaku!
    Yakuzza Lethecus: back to western civilization ? :)
    Calvino Rabeni: Boring but true :)
    Calvino Rabeni: Not you, Yaku :)
    Storm Nordwind: There are some things I have learnt not to press while editing Cal!
    Calvino Rabeni: Like backspace, delete, and enter?
    Storm Nordwind: Never enter. Only Shift-enter.
    Calvino Rabeni: (ahh .. glimmer of editing hope)

    A pendant that seems to serve as an effective advertisment!
    Eden Haiku: Yes Yaku, what is is this beautiful design you have on your plexus?
    Yakuzza Lethecus: the thothica pendant ?
    Eden Haiku: A thohtica pendant? What is it?
    Yakuzza Lethecus: i just attached it because i kind of wantend to show that i like the place
    Eden Haiku: Yes, good luck with the wiki Calvino. I wonder if I will remember how to post a log...
    Eden Haiku: Thothica is a place in SL?
    Storm Nordwind: Beware Eden - the log police are vigilant ;)
    Yakuzza Lethecus: you might check these places later, they are really interesting :)
    Eden Haiku: Thanks Yaku, I will check it out!
    Yakuzza Lethecus: storm,cal you guys know thothica,phil island and the philosophyclass ?
    Eden Haiku: New palces to explore in Second Life, yesss!
    Storm Nordwind: I still have a landmark but I have rarely visited
    Calvino Rabeni: Yes, I checked it out a few times Yaku

    Eden heard an extra bell before.
    Eden Haiku: The sounbd of the bell seemed different? Is it?
    Storm Nordwind: I think one of us is wearing another bell
    Eden Haiku: ?
    Calvino Rabeni: I have one yes - but didn't know it was audible to others
    Calvino Rabeni: It is the play as being watch
    Calvino Rabeni: could that be something heard here?
    Yakuzza Lethecus: hehe, did you created it ?
    Yakuzza Lethecus: create
    Storm Nordwind: It's VERY audible Cal :)
    Calvino Rabeni: Ah,,, live and learn :)

    I remember that some people had missed the rain... and so it starts raining.
    Yakuzza Lethecus loves thunderstorms and sunshine
    Eden Haiku: Looking for an umbrella...
    Eden Haiku: Storm seems to like to play with rain now...
    Calvino Rabeni: Interesting to observe the relaxing effect of listening to a sound from nature
    Eden Haiku: Did not find an umbrella but a lei and a cup of tea!
    Storm Nordwind chuckles
    Calvino Rabeni: which made the storm a monsoon

    Much silence... but general mayhem follows, at least for a short while
    Storm Nordwind: It seems we are sharing your lagginess Eden, and just relaxing :)
    Eden Haiku: good!
    Eden Haiku: Maybe we could do some flying onigokko?
    Eden Haiku: onigooko
    Storm Nordwind: All things are possible, only believe!
    Eden Haiku: onigokko
    Calvino Rabeni: We know what to do, encountering the buddha on the road, but what is appropriate upon discovering a naiad in a pool?
    Storm Nordwind: stop
    Storm Nordwind: onigokko
    Eden Haiku: yaku!
    Yakuzza Lethecus: :)
    Eden Haiku: Storm is walking up in the air!
    Eden Haiku: stop
    Eden Haiku: No one has the flying onigokko device?
    Storm Nordwind thwacks Eden with a hammer
    Eden Haiku: Thery used it in the scribe session!
    Eden Haiku: Ouch!!!
    Eden Haiku: Now Calvino is floating around!
    Storm Nordwind: Do we get extra points for shooting him while airborne?
    Calvino Rabeni: Eden, it is just a bigger way of being "grounded"
    Eden Haiku: Typing with a pink hammer in your hand makes you look weird Storm...
    Storm Nordwind: Plus ça change, plus c'est la même chose
    Eden Haiku: Shoot hiom with lemmings Yaku!

    There seems to be a craving for something more profound!
    Eden Haiku: Forgot how profound our discussions here can be...;-)
    Yakuzza Lethecus: actually i the hard thing is to really get deep into topics
    Calvino Rabeni: I recommend making the pool here quite a bit deeper
    Eden Haiku: Let us pick one Yakuzza!
    Calvino Rabeni: Dive in, Yaku-san
    Eden Haiku: hey Storm, who are you shooting now?
    Yakuzza Lethecus: :)
    Storm Nordwind: oops ;)
    Eden Haiku: This place has become quite virile!

    Yakuzza helps us focus on appearances.
    Yakuzza Lethecus: even today at work! i was thinking about my personal definitions of "beeing seeing" and appreaciate the presense of appearances as representation of being
    Eden Haiku: Oh thatn is deep for my jet-lagged self Yaku...
    Yakuzza Lethecus: i was amazed that i remembered the whole phrase :)
    Calvino Rabeni: I was doing the same earlier today
    Eden Haiku: ;-)
    Storm Nordwind is impressed
    Yakuzza Lethecus: my personal definitions is ,,enjoy every moment"
    Calvino Rabeni: Who is the "author" of the appearances?
    Eden Haiku: Carpe diem yes.
    Storm Nordwind: Does there have to be one?
    Calvino Rabeni: Just asking
    Yakuzza Lethecus: but the problem is that we can get a phrase like ,,carpe diem,enjoy every moment easily"
    Calvino Rabeni: Is there one?
    Yakuzza Lethecus: but the main issue is how to get the semantics
    Yakuzza Lethecus: how to really activate the positive emotions every moment
    Calvino Rabeni: Yes, maybe the thing is to "see through" the semantics
    Yakuzza Lethecus: when your boss tells you that you´ve done crap or something :)

    Calvino asks an interesting question.
    Calvino Rabeni: Who is the author of the appearance of a diety, or the appearance of a cardboard cut-out representing one?
    Storm Nordwind: Why not ask them and find out? :)
    Calvino Rabeni: Good idea, provided I first drop "I am the author"
    Storm Nordwind: Yes. That's probably a good starting point

    Eden starts to talk about another impression from India...
    Eden Haiku: Was very impressed by a statue of Shani, (our Saturn) in South India. Wearing a black sari and with a raven. Time showing up as a deity.
    Calvino Rabeni: Secondly, perhaps drop - the meaninglessness of appearances idea
    Eden Haiku: I'm levitating!
    Storm Nordwind: Eden needs to drop in another way!
    Calvino Rabeni: THis happens for unknown (to me) reasons
    Storm Nordwind: What were your impressions of Shani, Eden?

    ...but is interrupted before she can answer questions on it.
    Eden Haiku: Skype with friends in india...will be back
    Storm Nordwind: ok!
    Yakuzza Lethecus: remember your friend that he wanted to join us :)
    Storm Nordwind is still amazed by these things, even as a hardened professional
    Calvino Rabeni: Storm is "as if" hardened :)
    Yakuzza Lethecus: i got a tp from a friend i am going to join
    Yakuzza Lethecus: take care everyone
    Storm Nordwind: My sense of childlike wonder seems not to have left me ever
    Storm Nordwind: Bye Yak!
    Calvino Rabeni: It's time for me to catch the bus to the office
    Calvino Rabeni: Thanks all, see you later
    Storm Nordwind: Oh - safe journey!
    Eden Haiku: I,m still here talking my friend Ajith, he can"t acess Second Life.
    Storm Nordwind: Please pass him my best regards. And my apologies that I have to leave now
    Eden Haiku: Bye Storm see you soon!
