    The Guardian for this meeting was Eliza Madrigal. The comments are by Eliza, joined by Sharon, Lucinda, Eos, Steve, and Wol!

    :) This morning's session topic spilled a little into this one, yet it was very much a space of its own.

    Eliza Madrigal waves to Sharon :)
    Eliza Madrigal yells :::Ahoy there:::::
    Eliza Madrigal: :)

    Eliza Madrigal smiles
    Eos Amaterasu: Feeling better, Eliza!
    Eos Amaterasu: *?
    Eliza Madrigal: Thank you, yes... much stronger today!
    Eliza Madrigal: just a little bit of sludge left ;-D
    Eliza Madrigal: And you Eos, are you caught up with things at home?
    Eliza Madrigal: (OH, wow... dress is really pretty when you stand Sharon :)
    Eos Amaterasu: Yes, the 10,000 things
    Eliza Madrigal: hehehe
    Eos Amaterasu: but they all happen within Being, don't they
    SophiaSharon Larnia: thanks have to relog brb
    Eliza Madrigal smiles
    Eliza Madrigal considers all the happenings
    Eos Amaterasu: wb, SS
    Eliza Madrigal: WB Sharon, still the same issues from this morning?
    SophiaSharon Larnia: im not sure, it looks better, lots of lag from where i was before i came here, i guess
    Eliza Madrigal: Ah


    Eos Amaterasu hasn't been the same since he started upgrading viewers
    Lucinda Lavender: same for me..
    Eliza Madrigal: Your av is aging backwards, Eos
    SophiaSharon Larnia: :)
    Eos Amaterasu: ahem.... need to pay some attention to that
    Eos Amaterasu: I'm trying to find myself :-)
    Eliza Madrigal: :)
    SophiaSharon Larnia: doesnt think the appearance of an avi here means anything, really
    Eliza Madrigal: :) yes, just some fun
    Eos Amaterasu: "the country music station plays soft but there's nothing really nothing to turn off"
    Eliza Madrigal: I think for some it can... can be a way of displaying an inner quality, etc
    SophiaSharon Larnia: yes, the interests of the typist
    Eliza Madrigal: :)
    Lucinda Lavender: I am curious ...do you hear music?
    Eos Amaterasu: yes.... people can grow from their inside out
    Eliza Madrigal: I don't think we have streaming here... perhaps at some of the village spots
    Eos Amaterasu: I hear birds

    Sharon brings up the morning's session, in which we talked about dreams and patterns and reflections ...

    SophiaSharon Larnia: what we talked about this morning really stayed with me today
    Eos Amaterasu: maybe crickets
    Lucinda Lavender: yes!
    Eliza Madrigal: Oh, Sharon? the shared dreaming, or?
    Eliza Madrigal: It was indeed an inspiring session
    SophiaSharon Larnia: well, your comment about Narcissus in the log :)
    Eliza Madrigal: :)
    Lucinda Lavender: Yes so fitting
    SophiaSharon Larnia: of course I knew the story but for some reason, re-hearing something can inspire you in different ways

    Eliza Madrigal: Hey, Steve :)
    stevenaia Michinaga: hello
    SophiaSharon Larnia: hi Steve

    Eos Amaterasu: http://playasbeing.wik.is/Chat_Logs/2010/04/2010.04.30_07%3a00_-_Sky_Diamonds

    Eliza Madrigal grins @ Eos
    Eos Amaterasu: Eliza in the Sky with Diamonds?
    SophiaSharon Larnia: smiles
    Eliza Madrigal: Sometimes its just timely.... speaks to something you're in right then...

    Eos Amaterasu: I like the idea of sharing dreaming which loosens the finding of I everywhere

    Eliza Madrigal: or right on the edge of?
    Eliza Madrigal: Ah, nice phrasing Eos, yes... loosening the I
    Eliza Madrigal thinks of 'hot potato' for some reason
    SophiaSharon Larnia: my life is very loose right now, I find myself looking for something to hold on to
    SophiaSharon Larnia: and it came into my awareness from the realization
    Eos Amaterasu: a hot potato?
    Eliza Madrigal: :) yes, its a game Eos
    Eos Amaterasu: (whups, sorry, go on SophiaSharon...)
    Eliza Madrigal: (am listening Sharon)
    SophiaSharon Larnia: no no was picturing a hot potato lol
    Eliza Madrigal: haha, sorry
    SophiaSharon Larnia: laughs
    Eos Amaterasu: was picturing SS looking for hot potato to hold on to :-)
    Eliza Madrigal: its a game where everyone tries not to be the one left holding the potato
    SophiaSharon Larnia: yes
    Eliza Madrigal: hahaha
    SophiaSharon Larnia: but thats trying :)

    Eliza Madrigal: I'm sure it will take a while to find your footing Sharon, having cleared out space in your life?
    SophiaSharon Larnia: too much :)
    Eliza Madrigal: :)
    Lucinda Lavender: I find it harder to collect my thoughts tonight but I am aware that when things are loose there are many possibilities and I thing of a loosely woven fabric.

    SophiaSharon Larnia: yes!
    Lucinda Lavender: think...
    Eliza Madrigal: hm, yes
    Eliza Madrigal: its tempting to fill in all the space right away... to go back to what might seem familiar perhaps
    Lucinda Lavender: If one were climbing through that fabric as a tiny thing...there might be many places to visit...direction to go
    SophiaSharon Larnia: i dont feel real, Ive ID myself with my situation, obviously
    Eos Amaterasu: "without you I am nothing"
    Lucinda Lavender: sounds so familiar to me...
    Eliza Madrigal shrinks down to walk through the strings
    Eos Amaterasu crawls the strands of the net
    Lucinda Lavender: from a time long ago before husband and children
    SophiaSharon Larnia wonders what the string is
    Lucinda Lavender: what some call the dream weave


    Lucinda Lavender: just possibilty,
    Eos Amaterasu: weave of appearance
    Eliza Madrigal: Aaahhh
    Lucinda Lavender: hints of "reality"

    Eos Amaterasu: no need to force the weaving
    Eos Amaterasu: or pull the strings of coincidence

    Wol?! At a 7M session? Nice surprise...

    Eliza Madrigal: Hi Wol!
    Wol Euler: hello everyone, sorry I'm late
    SophiaSharon Larnia: hi Wol
    stevenaia Michinaga: hello Wol
    stevenaia Michinaga: up late?
    Eliza Madrigal: Amazing to see you at a night session :)
    Eos Amaterasu: really late for you!
    Eos Amaterasu: or early!
    SophiaSharon Larnia: :)
    stevenaia Michinaga: like tomarrow?
    Eliza Madrigal: :)
    Wol Euler: yeah, it is. I don't really know why I am still up
    Wol Euler: 4:34 am right now

    Lucinda Lavender: and rather than memorizing the things that unfold perhaps we are resonating with and giving what ever gifts we have there.

    Eliza Madrigal: Goodness
    stevenaia Michinaga: aww, almost tomorrow
    Eos Amaterasu: we have woven you into here....
    SophiaSharon Larnia: you're as bad as me Wol :)
    Wol Euler: :)
    Eos Amaterasu: did you feel a strange attraction, Wol?
    Lucinda Lavender: hi Wol!
    Eliza Madrigal: We were talking about dream fabrics... seems hah, yes that we pulled you
    Wol Euler: I must have heard the call
    SophiaSharon Larnia: must've
    Eliza Madrigal: does this look like something you could have dreamt up?
    Eliza Madrigal: :)
    Wol Euler: heheheh
    Wol Euler: I have dreamed about PaB actually
    Eos Amaterasu: our consensual dream
    stevenaia Michinaga: what great gloves!
    Wol Euler: and I often dream of/in SL
    Eos Amaterasu: Wol was the first SL person I dreamt
    Eliza Madrigal: Well then it fits, me too.... must be overlapping
    Wol Euler: O.O
    Eliza Madrigal: Really Eos?
    Wol Euler: wow :)
    Eos Amaterasu: :-)
    SophiaSharon Larnia: listens :)
    Lucinda Lavender: do you remember it?
    Wol Euler: may I enquire ... ?
    Eliza Madrigal: (not that I dreamt Wol first but that I dream SL a lot)
    Eliza Madrigal listens
    Eos Amaterasu: hmm....
    Eos Amaterasu: it was my first mixed SL/RL dream
    Lucinda Lavender: :)
    Eos Amaterasu: just remember noticing that
    Eliza Madrigal: Neat
    Eos Amaterasu: not sure if I noticed in the dream or out - seemed pretty normal at the time

    Wol Euler: dream logic is warped but very logical in its own time and space

    Wol Euler: I dreamed once that my sister's dog was simultaneously a black lab, and a red-haired green-eyed girl
    Lucinda Lavender: a shapeshifter...
    Eliza Madrigal: such detail
    Eliza Madrigal: almost like there were two dreamers
    Eos Amaterasu: look into her eyes, and you see all that
    Eliza Madrigal: I bet Eos dreams about almonds
    Eliza Madrigal: hehehe
    Eos Amaterasu: heh heh
    Lucinda Lavender: perhaps gifts of that person
    Eos Amaterasu: I did once after the Malta retreat
    Eliza Madrigal: Ah, yes true!

    Eliza Madrigal: Wol, did you dream as vividly before SL?
    Wol Euler: oh yes
    Wol Euler: I've alwys had very intricate dreams
    Wol Euler: what was new after SL is that I started dreaming in different bodies
    Wol Euler: differently gendered bodies:)
    Eliza Madrigal: how wonderful
    Lucinda Lavender: understandable
    Wol Euler: that was a pleasant surprise ;)
    Eliza Madrigal: yes, hm, guess that was a shift for me too... but diff species...
    Lucinda Lavender: the possibilities for imagining
    Eliza Madrigal: virtual weaving
    SophiaSharon Larnia: :)

    Eos Amaterasu: Wol also weaves the weaver

    Lucinda Lavender: do you write yours down?
    Wol Euler: very seldom, mostly I trust to my extraordinarily good memory :)
    Eliza Madrigal: oooo, weaving the weaver..... gosh what fun to choose a title tonight :)

    Lucinda Lavender: then you can go back and look for the themes that may develop as it may still be on the loom

    SophiaSharon Larnia: wow yes Lucinda
    Eos Amaterasu: I get the impression that we're pretty constantly dreaming
    Eliza Madrigal: so its funny to choose what to write


    Steve slumps over...

    Eliza Madrigal: we lulled Steve :)
    stevenaia Michinaga: grins
    Eos Amaterasu: (dreaming)
    Eliza Madrigal: :)
    Eliza Madrigal: it was his turn to dream this

    And the title goes to :::drum role::::

    Eos Amaterasu: thank you steve for keeping us alive in your imaginarium

    Eliza Madrigal: hehehe
    stevenaia Michinaga: enhancing my mentoring page, but you can't edit in a dream
    Wol Euler: :)
    Eliza Madrigal has heard this, but has indeed seemed to read things
    Lucinda Lavender: you just think you have woken up?
    SophiaSharon Larnia: I wonder how much of that is real, Eos
    Eos Amaterasu: we do kind of weave the story and being of ourselves....
    Eos Amaterasu: collaboratively
    Eos Amaterasu: with listeners, other weavers
    Eos Amaterasu: here it's like a spontaneously co-created play
    SophiaSharon Larnia: :)
    Lucinda Lavender: yes:)

    SophiaSharon Larnia: night all, falling asleep at the keyboard ^^
    Wol Euler: ((I'm finally feeling tired enough to sleep. Thank you, my dears, goodnight and gods bless))
    SophiaSharon Larnia: smiles
    Eliza Madrigal: Night Sharon and Wol :) Sweet dreams both
    Eos Amaterasu: 'night Wol, SophiaSharon
    Wol Euler: enjoy your weekends
    Lucinda Lavender: sweet dream to you both
    Eliza Madrigal: You too Wol :)
    stevenaia Michinaga: night, enjoy your dreams
    Eos Amaterasu: Will also leave after the ding (which follows the deeper dong)
    Eliza Madrigal: so its like we have keys to the doors of others' imaginariums... heh
    stevenaia Michinaga: how does one leave with a dong?
    Eos Amaterasu: the dong starts things (like the 90 secs).....
    Eliza Madrigal smiles at Eos, knowing that it must be difficult not to be the dinger
    Eos Amaterasu: :-)
    Eliza Madrigal: (people often depend on Eos's phone for meditations)
    Eos Amaterasu: ("sonar" sound on the iPhone)
    Lucinda Lavender: does it ring and wake them?
    stevenaia Michinaga: every 15 minutes?
    Eos Amaterasu: who knows?
    Eos Amaterasu: in San Francisco we ended up doing 15 minute sessions
    Eliza Madrigal: yes, liked that
    Lucinda Lavender: using the phone as a bell?
    Eliza Madrigal nods
    Lucinda Lavender: ah
    Eos Amaterasu: set a timer on the iPhone
    Lucinda Lavender: nice
    Eos Amaterasu is hoping for more PaBeing furniture, accoutrements, jewellery....
    Eos Amaterasu: earings that dong and ding
    Eliza Madrigal laughs

    Lucinda Lavender: what special ear rings...
    stevenaia Michinaga: time for Wol to write a PaB app
    Eos Amaterasu: Eliza's bells on her shoes

    Wheels turning...

    Eliza Madrigal: Lucinda, have you and your group ever done a kind of dream-themed retreat? I think that might be interesting
    Lucinda Lavender: yes quite a few
    Eliza Madrigal jingles and jangles
    Eliza Madrigal: Oh!
    Eliza Madrigal: I know its getting late, but I'd love to hear more about that some time too
    Lucinda Lavender: and once was in the back woods or Arkansas on top of a swath of crystal
    Eliza Madrigal: oh my
    Eos Amaterasu: ?
    Lucinda Lavender: I drove through a rainstorm where frogs jumped on to the road and off it! in the dark
    Eos Amaterasu: (urk)
    Lucinda Lavender: A sort of meeting of the dreamers...
    Lucinda Lavender: laughed hysterically as it seemed like out of a myth
    Eliza Madrigal: seems a bit of wildness :))
    Eliza Madrigal: letting the dreamers run free...
    Lucinda Lavender: the frogs I mean...two night , several dream circles andess
    Lucinda Lavender: sorry, we spent quiet time listening
    Eliza Madrigal: Sounds wonderful Lucinda
    Lucinda Lavender: I had never been there before. quite a different world.
    stevenaia Michinaga: I must be off
    stevenaia Michinaga: see you soon

    Eliza Madrigal: do you feel you take on a bit of the surroundings ? dream into the place?
    Eliza Madrigal: Night Steve and Eos :)
    Lucinda Lavender: yes sometimes
    Lucinda Lavender: bye Steve and eos
    Eos Amaterasu: good night Steve, Eliza,Lucinda
    Eliza Madrigal: :) Sweet dreams
    Eos Amaterasu: thanx for sharing this dream :-)
    Lucinda Lavender: I had been in an online class for some time with the other dreamers
    Eliza Madrigal: Its been an oddly paced session.... but interesting in its way... its own context
    Eliza Madrigal: Oh, a class?
    Lucinda Lavender: meeting was wonderful
    Eliza Madrigal: wow you've really focused ...
    Lucinda Lavender: tell me.. about the pacing
    Lucinda Lavender: yes
    Eliza Madrigal: just something I felt I guess... like the kind of music playing...
    Lucinda Lavender: yes
    Eliza Madrigal: this morning we kind of crackled
    Eliza Madrigal: and tonight we swayed a bit
    Lucinda Lavender: ah
    Eliza Madrigal: same topic, in a way, but very different too
    Eliza Madrigal: different tune
    Lucinda Lavender: yes
    Eliza Madrigal: :)

    Eliza Madrigal: how does an online dreaming class work?
    Eliza Madrigal hopes you don't mind all her questions :)
    Lucinda Lavender: It was offered by the teacher and one would have an email a week, and a thread to post on.
    Eliza Madrigal: Ah, so parameters
    Eliza Madrigal: then writing and sharing
    Lucinda Lavender: at the end we each took a kind of dreaming and wrote about it.
    Eliza Madrigal: hm, 'kind' of dreaming?
    Lucinda Lavender: That class was called dreams are letters from the soul.
    Lucinda Lavender: I wrote about telepathic dreaming
    Eliza Madrigal: oh, lovely
    Lucinda Lavender: it was a kind that I had been curious about
    Eliza Madrigal: indeed, a fascinating topic

    Lucinda Lavender: The big answer I got was that because of love the doors open

    Eliza Madrigal: MMMMM
    Eliza Madrigal: That resonates for me too
    Lucinda Lavender: that is why I needed that class.
    Eliza Madrigal: many doors open and wondered what to do?
    Lucinda Lavender: to help me accept some gifts in that department.
    Lucinda Lavender: children, animals, stories of falling buildings etc.
    Eliza Madrigal: Ah, yes I see
    Lucinda Lavender: trauma as a child can open the doors too.
    Lucinda Lavender: like having a little light inside for information
    Eliza Madrigal: maybe because it can be potential for empathy
    Lucinda Lavender: yes!!!!
    Eliza Madrigal: :)

    Lucinda Lavender: so then rather than being afraid one can move with it...surf it so to speak
    Lucinda Lavender: allow transformation as it unfolds
    Eliza Madrigal smiles
    Eliza Madrigal: healing dreams
    Lucinda Lavender: yes, personal, collective, transformational, philanthropic.
    Lucinda Lavender: healing falls in the transformational
    Eliza Madrigal: Wonderful scope... including others
    Eliza Madrigal: 'my gain is the gain of everyong endlessly' is one of my favorite lines from a buddhist song...

    Lucinda Lavender: yes that is where the universe is being created I suppose
    Eliza Madrigal: /smiles
    Lucinda Lavender: where we are feeding and regenerating others
    Eliza Madrigal: so inspiring Lucinda! Its hard to sign off, but I'd better...
    Eliza Madrigal: early day tomorrow :)
    Eliza Madrigal: Nice to see you again :)
    Lucinda Lavender: me too! thanks I look forward io it...
    Eliza Madrigal: Bye for now :) Sweet dreams to you
    Lucinda Lavender: bye for now
    Lucinda Lavender: same for you
    Eliza Madrigal: :)
