Right now I am in a coffee shop in Lazona, and about to go to SCC lessons for 3 hours, and then GG lesson for 1 hour.

18:02 Thursday 22 March 2018 JST

Tears were apparently shed by one of the students at SCC; she is scheduled to present tomorrow and found out today that her presentation is going to be different than what she expected/practiced for. Yikes stripes I wish I could help more, but I suggested some simplifications that will hopefully make it easier.

court of support

13:23 Thursday 22 March 2018 JST

The court of support meetings are being held for seven weeks after the LT1 I attended in Portland on March 9th weekend. Each man will take the role of a different archetype, King, Warrior, Magician, Lover, as described in many places, including King, Warrior, Magician, Lover: Rediscovering the Archetypes of the Mature Masculine, and bite sized Four Archetypes of the Mature Masculine on Art of Manliness.

I was in the role of Magician this morning. I will be the Man in the Middle next week, presenting my situation and getting guidance from the archetypes around me.

no bare feet

13:10 Thursday 22 March 2018 JST

Lazona has a new green faux grass field in the middle of the open air area, featuring firm inflatable plastic chairs, a geodesic dome tent, a sakura tree in full bloom, and a sign saying no playing ball, no music, no work(?), no events, and no bare feet.

lazona no bare feet

Wait, what? No work? Maybe it doesn’t say that.

Wait, what? No bare feet? Maybe they haven’t ever tried walking barefoot on the surface. It feels really nice to me! I am glad I walked on it before seeing the sign. When I saw it, I was like, HA! They have no clue what they are talking about.

It snowed today

00:34 Thursday 22 March 2018 JST

It snowed “today” and was 2 degrees C all day long. It’s apparently going up to 16 or 18 degrees C tomorrow.

I chatted with Delayna who I’ve known since our mutual YRUU days back in late 1980s, culminating with ConCon 1988. Looking forward to seeing her herb business grow!

Yesterday I studied during co-gender group; no one else came.

Today I broadcast for two hours on Youtube for Marble Track 3.

Today before the men’s group, I met Rohini in Hiroo at Aloha Today restaurant. Told her about my experiences in Portland. She bought me dinner (yay + yum) and then I went to men’s circle. 4 men (including myself) attended the men’s group.

mt3: hmm is the stage slowing down?

15:22 Tuesday 20 March 2018 JST

(written 09:25 Wednesday 21 March 2018 JST)

In a single day, I can take maybe 20 or 30 frames, which adds a couple of seconds to the final movie.

Yesterday, I worked 2 hours on Marble Track 3, including adding a new dimension of planning to the project:

2018 mar 21 new dimension 1 2018 mar 21 new dimension 2 2018 mar 21 new dimension 3

I wrote notes to script out the next 5 weeks (or so) for the Reversable Guy (character whose head looks largely the same when facing forward or backward) as he debugs why the stage is slowing down. For what I have sketched out so far, in final movie time, it will be like (323-183) / 12 = approx 12 seconds of video.

The end of this video includes 2 seconds of footage which I sketched out in this way.

Excuse me, I noticed a mosquito biting
I may be wrong but
in this environment, business meetings may go pear shaped
Catching the mozzy would be good I think

These cats are keeping me from getting ready.

Long ago, my colleage used to work at a far away factory.

uh oh - gotta change the baby's diaper

bullying is terrible

A burglar stole my homework

japanese 2018 mar 20 2

oops I made a mistake.  I hadn't written it yet.

To save money I don't change clothes.

At my part time job at police station I caught a criminal

Better wrap food before microwaving

Better wrap food before baking

I give my lil brother rain water not soda maybe
anyway, we gotta save monies
but fried mosquito is going a bit too far

I want to continue this gum so during dinner
I will stick it in my navel.

I typed the difficult-to-read text.  Oops I wrote "I think" as "I thnk" many times.
