My Life in Ancient Greece
I wonder whose fault it is that I am in love with Goddess Athena from Ancient Greece. I only mean it in a good way, of course. I love Athena to death. It cannot be because of my ex-muse. She was jealous at times but my poem about jealousy (linked at the bottom) may have put an end to that. She obviously did not inspire the words to that one. Another reason that I am quite suddenly in love with a goddess from over 3,000 years ago is her impeccable character which towered over any man’s or other god’s. The key reason, however, can only be related to my reading of someone’s poems and or stories that simply contained allusions to Ancient Greece and some of its source words, which more and more seems like the only culprit.
Eléni’s First Visit - Part 13
This is the lucky-thirteen part of the tale. Goddess Athena asked me to write a final one given that the twelfth may have been too misleading. Some things were mentioned that should have been omitted, such as the declaration that Patrick, M, and Eléni were one and the same, which is somewhat false. Patrick and M may be two halves of one man, but Eléni is someone else altogether. So, why did I, Patrick, insinuate and then state that she was part of us and thus a third? You may need to read all twelve parts again which I linked at the bottom as Part 12 since it also links within it to all the others. But the gist of it is simple. I wanted to “see” the reaction of two of the characters. Athena played along because it seemed harmless. I was only going to test a hypothesis. Nothing scientific, mind you, but something ironic. It seems to have worked, but I am still not sure to what degree. It is the real reason why I suggest that you read the other twelve parts again, so you can help me understand if my final game worked out as I had planned. What are you talking about? I can almost hear a few of you think. It is hard to explain. There are too many parts to cover. I am sorry but I am finally laughing for a change. You are not trees as far I know. Remember that each of those twelve parts requires around six minutes of your time on average, so you need to schedule about eighty minutes in total, which includes this thirteenth and last part. By the way, the image above looks a little like Eléni, without the stars, of course. I counted eight and she is surely a ten.
I was never jealous of anyone or anything like a yellow Corvette Jealous of Elon Musk? never ever Jeff Bezos? no way in a million years
Eléni’s First Visit - Part 12
This is the twelfth and last part of the tale, unless Goddess Athena asks me to write more. But she will not given the freedom that she affords me in all matters both literary and real. All eleven previous parts, linked at the bottom through Part 11, are a must to fully follow and comprehend this love affair between the real ((giggles)) and the unreal ((giggles)). Each other part requires around five minutes of your time, but this one will require more. More, I tell you, more! Anthi Psomiadou and R Tsambounieri Talarantas had graciously agreed to appear as fictional characters in this first visit of Eléni to Athens, where she had hoped beyond scientific reason to speak to Goddess Athena and find the missing Patrick. The story spans her two-week visit to ‘tis-blue and ‘tis-white Greece. Athena mia! At the touch of love everyone becomes a poet. Plato
