Paying Attention

For those who are participating live and for friends who want to pay attention (and for us to follow what you are doing) = Para los que están participando en vivo y para los amigos que quieren estar atentos (y para que nosotros sigamos lo que estáis haciendo)

Marlene has requested an email with instructions (tarea), so I am doing just that and posting the notes on Planeta.com.

These chats are a year-long test mastering Zoom with friends I would like to stay in contact. People’s experiences are so varied. This month we shaping the conversation as a virtual tour, a show-and-tell. A far different experience from jumping on a plane and visiting in-person!

In addition to the live chat, we are hosting a watch party the following Wednesday. Ron is updating timestamps (times when friends are introduced and when special comments are made) and various pages on this website.

Requests (Tareas) for On Camera Participants
Let Ron know if you would like to participate on camera via Zoom. If so, we’ll start the private chat at 10am Mexico, 8am Pacific to test things out.

On the wish list – participants using headphones and muting themselves when not speaking.

Try to do 3 of the following:

Requests for Viewers

  • Ask questions.
  • Please positive encouragement to the participants.
  • Let us know if there are other online resources, documents, webinars, events of interest to Planeta.com readers/viewers.

Greetings and Saludos from Las Vegas

Estos chats son una prueba de un año de Zoom con amigos con los que me gustaría estar en contacto. Jennifer y Marlene me han enseñado mucho sobre México, la meditación, el patrimonio mundial y el yoga, además de otras cien conexiones aleatorias. Estas son las conversaciones que quiero cocrear y compartir a través de Planeta.com. Si bien visitar el Templo Mayor en la Ciudad de México o River Walk en San Antonio es una gran cosa que hacer, ir con un amigo o ser querido profundiza la experiencia. Entonces, en lugar de saltar en un avión y visitar en persona, configuraremos nuestras conversaciones de los viernes como recorridos virtuales (exploraciones y reminiscencias) de caminar o andar en bicicleta o comer juntos.

El viernes comenzaremos el chat privado a las 10 a.m., hora de México, para probar las cosas.

Tareas: Por favor, hágales saber a los demás sobre la próxima conversación. Intente hacer 3 de los siguientes:

Interactúa (suscríbete / me gusta / favorito / corazón / lo que sea) a través de nuestras cuentas:

Por favor, aliente positivamente a los demás.

¿Hay alguna pregunta que le gustaría hacer?
