It is not a lack of love, but a lack of friendship that makes unhappy marriages. Nietzsche “I sometimes think that love is a dirty word and much dirtier than pussy, for example. All we need is love. I don’t think as much anymore. All we need is the silence of a kind breeze, the shade of a happy tree, the sight of a blue sky, the knowledge that the Sun is still there at night, sending its rays of life and death. Love is already in the fabric of these moments and there’s no need to extract it and give it even more meaning when it simply doesn’t merit it.”
Eléni’s First Visit - Part 11
This is the eleventh part of the tale. There will be twelve parts unless Goddess Athena necessitates more. All ten previous parts, linked at the bottom through Part 10, are necessary to fully follow this ongoing romance between the real and the possibly real. Each part requires around five minutes of your time. 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 to speak to Goddess Athena and find the missing Patrick. The story spans her two-week visit to blue-sky-and-seas and white-independence Greece. Alcohol makes other people less tedious, and food less bland, and can help provide what the Greeks called entheos, or the slight buzz of inspiration when reading or writing. Christopher Hitchens (I still miss him to no end)
Somewhere between love and death lies my life There was much strife before and the worst death Now, since November there is only love
I finally found my soulmate after an obscene sum of years Unfortunately she’s married and she has a beautiful kid How else would she be, this offspring
To All of Them
To all my failures, my misses, The roads that traversed me downright, The planes following the hisses, All those who disciplined my might.
Eléni’s First Visit - Part 10
This is the tenth part of the tale. There will be twelve parts or perhaps more. It seems to depend on Goddess Athena, after all. The first, second, third, fourth, fifth, sixth, seventh, eighth and ninth parts are all necessary to fully follow this ongoing saga, with each part only requiring around five minutes of your time. Anthi Psomiadou and R Tsambounieri Talarantas had both graciously agreed to appear as fictional characters in this first visit of Eléni to Greece, where she had hoped to speak to Goddess Athena and find the missing Patrick. The story spans her two-week visit to blue-heaven-and-white-texture Greece. Let there be light! said Liberty, and like the sunrise from the sea, Athens arose! Percy Bysshe Shelley
No true image exists for this true story. When a poet decides to take a step, and walk, poetry pops out much later, and the direction is often of no consequence. Left may be a dead-end, right may be some other kind of hell, forward may look like death, and backward is almost impossible. There are no wings to fly up, but if there are some stairs, it is something. The same applies to going down, but nobody wants to go to the basement where the possibilities are darker like a moonless night, even if there is some artificial light. There are six possibilities to choose from at most.
I just got into bed about a day ago Took a look at the sheets to see if they were blue or red Where she used to lay her head and the rest of her anatomy
