while the visits to play are often fun
there's a peace in progress

trusted to others
and shared

I will not get your messages here or anywhere else, except perhaps Twitter. No computers, no email, no beeps every few seconds from IMs.

Love you wonderful people.....see you in December!

It's because of many underhanded activities, including some questionable and illegal practices captured in this video:

What a fun day! It doesn't feel like a time to celebrate, and yet I am more proud of my country than ever before. I feel patriotic and happy to be an American for the first time in....decades?

16:02 @greengurus has a new website, thanks to @jediwright for building the renewable economy and taking care of @toyshoppe to build Coachella. #

16:08 Vegan cheese challenge: SoySation brand melted the best, mixed with the Cheezy cheddar-like cashew nut vegan spread. Willow Run margarine. #

16:14 The total taste winner was the #vegan Cheezy Cheeze by Playfood four varieties! #

18:51 Working on the Justice book today, sorting out what text needs to be there. Loving Booksmart! #

07:49 Grrr. Willow Run soy margarine not available in Los Angeles. Health food store trips today, where to go for best vegan nondairies? #

08:35 Headed to #nonprofitcommons meeting, sorry so late but slow on the upload today. Built a beautiful stage for Women in the Arts though! #

08:52 Sky and Dallas hide under bed, also flickr pics of Huntington Gardens, Chicago and TN. #

From our recent clip:

Luv putz up wiht all teh stuffz, beelivez all teh stuffz, hoepz for all

teh stuffz. Luv putz up wiht all teh stuffz... i sed that areddy?

These are our new cats hiding under our bed last night. Dallas and Sky....Sky is pictured here. Around 3AM they decided to be social IMG_4682.JPGand meow a lot for their lost owner, and now they're hiding in the bottom of the closet near the towels. Poor fuzzes were traumatized as youngins and are very scaredycat right now. That won't last forever I'm sure!

Thankfully Scorch found a new love in NYC, so there's no jelusniss or stuffz.

07:28 Very much torn....interviewing two new cats who need a new home tonight, enjoying the sweet feline already here. Furflyin worth the upset? #

07:35 Beagley: How does it feel to want? It feels very frustrating at times to want; like your skin will crawl out of you from the inside out. #

07:36 Learning that wanting and the expectation are poor practice, prefer clear intention, focus, appreciation with attention, care, nonattachment #

07:42 @mikeprasad, @sloane, @greengurus, @keltraine Let's gather genii for worldchangers dinner @sugarshack, lowkey meetup for <20 any Thu ... #

08:15 @nunblogger We've had community days @sugarshack where no one was able to be there but a handful of residents. Some days its just work. #

10:46 @helenprejean That's shocking, how many of us approve of torture. My guess is that would change quickly if we were ever thrown in prison. #

10:55 Life behind the gun, am I a torturer? #

12:57 Awesome. LED Light Artistry. I want to do this citywide. #

15:30 really nailed the gluten free dinner rolls. culver city vegan options too. #

16:35 @seanbonner We could definitely use 20 web servers, and pass them onto other good groups through nonprofit communities and pilot projects. #

22:29 Just adopted the two boy siamese kitties, still hiding under my bed. Dallas and Sky, beautiful and very smart but quite abused in the past. #

09:46 Would love your thoughts on Jean Houston. Considering who will be my major advisor for my PhD....three amazing choices. #

11:25 The hawtest: girls (and guys) who read Eckhart Tolle, Thich Nhat Hanh and Frances Vaughan. Ken Wilber too, you're rock my world. #

11:27 @missrogue HeroCamp sounds fun! Sounds like the perfect time of year to see Vancouver. #

11:35 Thanks to everyone, especially Air and MykeSciPark for sharing #

10:33 @veganbits and others, please send me your favorite vegan cheez alternatives, smooth and meltable for sandwiches. Free sandwich will rise! #

12:55 @HiroPen we call the Nonprofit Commons NPC, does that count? we've got many dozen organizations and offices there ;-) #

13:04 @HiroPen SL developing *was* the side business. ;-) Need a long term inworld solution to make AMO Island viable. #

13:13 Nonprofit Commons is far less AI than a NonPlayer Character...a bot? ManorMeta has a few NPCs. #

14:15 @ugotrade I've sent your blogpost on Open Source Virtual Worlds from #vw2008 to a dozen friends, at least. Now a few more dozen. #

14:22 Damnation is not something that avatars can truly comprehend. We just log in again. #

True, present, deeply engaged.  Aware of everyone in collaboration, their roles....strengths.....weaknesses.

Circles of trust built around flexible systems that allow for people to grow and change over time.

Diversity, creativity, user-created worlds with room to build onto "the game" or whatever challenge is set out in a day.

These games are our lives: little interactive diversions are the way we have learned to interact and touch our world.  For some of us this is full immersion in some digital form, while others dabble with cell phone photos and social networks.  The result is similar....over time, new patterns emerge in the game players who have learned to type their thoughts most clearly, as if QWERTY was the universal language.

I still contend that love = energy in every brilliant game.  There's endless ways to design a strategic playspace but no play feels like play without love.  We need that passion in order to enjoy the playful experiences of our lives.

Tools are endless, available from anyone with enough creativity to build a better bridge.

In this world my flights are as long as I want them to be, not dictated by oil poured into a plastic and metal machine.  My mobility is endless too and soaring never gets tiring.

"The Game" is vast, our board the streets and homes within homes.  Perhaps you live on Baltic or St. Charles, or maybe Ventnor?  Pacific?  I've seen the boardwalk homes and they need work too.

Find what you love and do it.  Happiness in life really seems to be a constant process loop on this basic love pursuit.  The game then, at any stage, is really about where your heart is at.

I met one of my favorite filmmakers while on the road, at the OnLocation: Memphis Int'l Film Festival.

Beyond the Call is playing this coming week in Los Angeles! Come see it with me and meet Adrian Belic at a Q&A with the filmmaker!

I'm looking at the Friday evening shows, but let me know if you're in LA and would like to join in for this. Adrian made the amazing Genghis Blues quite a few years ago and this movie about international aid workers totally rocked my world. I left before the ending so that I could see it again and be surprised.

Why my friends are like mirrors

February 8, 2008
Evonne! You have always made me feel welcome, comfortable and loved. You are sweet, smart, kind and beautiful! I look forward to learning much more about you because I know i have only begun to scratch the surface. I just wanted to say a big THANK YOU, and tell you that I love seeing your smiling face at any gathering. Can't wait till next time we get to hang out!
July 6, 2007
Just thinking of Evonne brings warmth, hope, Love and smile....

Love and light
June 6, 2007
I could go on and on, but I'll keep it simple:
Evonne = Love
November 14, 2006
So often, we forget that we are ever on the precipice of entering an entirely new phase in our lives. Every so often, we are fortunate enough to meet someone who helps us remember this. I feel blessed whenever I meet someone like Evonne who makes me want to take a flying leap. I guess opening IS the beginning!
September 28, 2006
Evonne is cool, quiet, colected, and more else than anything CREATIVE!

I admire this girl, and glad to be her friend.
October 13, 2005
Miss Jennifer Evonne Heyning is certainly a most unique individual. Waking up to feel the glow of her smile, amused and surprised by her sharp wit and insight, and all the little things that make me fall in love with her over and over again are but some of the reasons that I am lucky enough to name her a friend, a partner, a coconspirator, cosingularity and wife.

Sometimes the reasons for saying "thank you" are simple, sometimes not. The fact that it is said and meant transcends the actual utterance.
July 18, 2005
She is such a beautiful person inside and out, she makes the world a better place just being there! She also inspires me to be a better person.
June 28, 2005
she does not just talk about love, compasion, etc., she practices it.
August 19, 2004
Jen is a divine spark, a little bolt of violet lightning, housed in an extremeley intelligent, playfully sexy, deeply compassionate, and lucidly awake human being.

She gives me electro-shakti treatment!!!!!!
