    Storm Nordwind briefly had the image of Steve cooking paper
    stevenaia Michinaga: piles here and piles there, it;s a monthy ritual
    Paradise Tennant: smiles yes knows that ritual well :)
    Storm Nordwind: A monthly ritual to let it build up? ;)
    Paradise Tennant: sticky stuff paper sometimes
    stevenaia Michinaga: yes, easier to organize on a monthly bases, you get a nice perspective on things
    Paradise Tennant: yes
    stevenaia Michinaga: wonders why there are 12 parts to a year
    Paradise Tennant: blinks
    Storm Nordwind: I think that depends where you come from
    stevenaia Michinaga: was thinking about "one's perspective" and how it relates to "appearence"
    stevenaia Michinaga: I haven;t read pems email yet, but will find the time shortly, once the paper relocates itself
    stevenaia Michinaga: *Pema's
    stevenaia Michinaga: but ti touched on a re-centering moment for me with PaB
    Storm Nordwind: What do you think so far about perspective and how it relates to appearance?
    Paradise Tennant: the moon rotates around the earth 12 times in the year ..it is the lunar calender :)
    stevenaia Michinaga: nods
    Storm Nordwind: Ah no - the moon goes around closer to 13 times, not 12.
    Paradise Tennant: smiles
    stevenaia Michinaga: didn;t the Roman have 10 months originally?
    Storm Nordwind: They did - then they added ones named after Julius and Augustus Caesars
    stevenaia Michinaga: having developed a multi faceted approach to seeing here, it offers a great variety of ways to see
    stevenaia Michinaga: no matter what it is one sees
    Bleu Oleander: hi all
    stevenaia Michinaga: hello Bleu
    Storm Nordwind: Hi Bleu
    Paradise Tennant: smiles hiya bleu gtsy :)
    stevenaia Michinaga: one is like walking around a box, everything changes as you move, like that little spinny "domb bell sculpture" in the art's park, when you sit on that, all seeing changes as it moves
    Paradise Tennant: seeing being .. being seeing :)
    stevenaia Michinaga: cat arrives between me an keyboard, typing gets dificult
    Bleu Oleander: :)
    Storm Nordwind: You may have to paws
    stevenaia Michinaga: lol
    Bleu Oleander: ha!
    Storm Nordwind notes that paws, pause, pours, pores and poors all sound exactly the same in his dialect
    stevenaia Michinaga: I have purrs at the moment
    Storm Nordwind laughs
    stevenaia Michinaga: can you give us a glimps of what you did on your retreat, storm?
    Storm Nordwind: Hmm... I can, except that I also did so at the session 12 hours ago! (Not wanting to dominate the chat logs :)
    stevenaia Michinaga: nods
    stevenaia Michinaga: will read that session
    Paradise Tennant: what was the best part?
    Storm Nordwind: The best part was the bit between the start and the end ;)
    Paradise Tennant: smiles
    stevenaia Michinaga: laughs
    Storm Nordwind: All really good :)
    Paradise Tennant: well you are not missing anything that way :)
    Storm Nordwind: Lots of effects, not least the fact that I redid my guardian plot as a result of the retreat
    Bleu Oleander: nice addition to the guardian plots Storm!
    stevenaia Michinaga: I was once asked by someone who could not fathon how there could be a test (to become a licensed architect that would last 12 continuous hours and what it could possible consist of
    Storm Nordwind: Thank you Bleu!
    stevenaia Michinaga: he thought it must have been like those envelope drawigns, ... draw this without crossing lines or lifting pencil
    Storm Nordwind: I would have said "ONLY 12 hours?"
    stevenaia Michinaga: yes, it;s never enough time, like meditation
    Storm Nordwind nods and smiles
    stevenaia Michinaga: always room to do more
    Storm Nordwind: Do you ever model RL work in SL. SL as a tool for RL?
    stevenaia Michinaga: I've done very little modeling here, the tools are not very efficient as they are in RL modeling...like "Google Sketchup" for eample
    stevenaia Michinaga: which is extremely fast
    Bleu Oleander: DB Bailey does that
    Bleu Oleander: have you seen his work?
    stevenaia Michinaga: no, bt I ahve seen amazing architedctural models here
    stevenaia Michinaga: there is a Frank Lloyd Wright sim here too
    Bleu Oleander: yes, the FLW Museum
    Paradise Tennant: yes that was fabulous
    Paradise Tennant: also a replica of "falling waters" ?
    stevenaia Michinaga: yes
    stevenaia Michinaga: and the guggenheim
    Storm Nordwind: SL does have its plusses I find. For example, I'm often frustrated with the Google Earth interface. Quite hard to navigate quickly with. I often wish it would follow SL camera manipulation techniques for getting around buildings and landscapes.
    stevenaia Michinaga: yes, it also depends on how much time you practive with any "tool"
    stevenaia Michinaga: it always improves with time
    Storm Nordwind: Sure. Unfortunately however, some user interface designers confuse "easy to learn" with "easy to use", and the two are often very different
    stevenaia Michinaga: be it a pencil, a modeling workflow or meditation
    stevenaia Michinaga: and there is still no easy way to brings RL models into SL, which would be helpful in some instances
    Storm Nordwind nods
    Paradise Tennant: loves google earth it is like a secret litle doorway to the large bits of the globe sitting on your desk
    stevenaia Michinaga: probably has to do with those pesky pims
    stevenaia Michinaga: Prims
    Storm Nordwind was going to ask "No.1 cup?"
    stevenaia Michinaga: ?
    Storm Nordwind: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pimm
