Around his house, here and there,
women’s clothes she did not wear.
Did former lovers leave them here
“Probably,” he said, “my dear.”
“Should I be jealous, now?”
she asked, crinkling her lovely brow.
“Oh, jealousy is such a pain,”
he answered, casually, again,
“Monogamy is not my thing,
so don’t go bringing anger in,
or we shall quarrel - what’s the point?
Putting each other out of joint!”
“I used to think,” she archly said,
“I’d let none share my dear man’s bed.”
“Oh, fiddle sticks,” he gaily cried,
“You’re just working up your pride

I don’t mind if you date men
and have experience worth discussing
in the lulls when we’re not kissing.”
“You are an extraordinary man
to tell his woman that she can
go out with other people too
and say it does not bother you.”
“If we were twenty still and fecund
I’d not want you having a second,
but as we’re older, wiser, free

I sometimes find a little treasure
with whom to have some carnal pleasure.
It pleases me - does you no harm -
if I enjoy another’s charm.”
“We seem now to have crossed a line,”
she said, “with me it’s fine.
I’d like to tell you, if you will,
about my friend, his name is Bill…”

My children, Floor and I have been at Eleusis for a week visiting Dharmavidya. He had had another attack of new embolisms in his lungs a few weeks ago, and had gone to see a specialist at the hospital who then kept him in the hospital for just under a week and was back home the day before we arrived.

When we arrived, he told us of another serious blockage problem. He lives in the countryside, quite remote, and is on…

SUCCESSFUL FIRST ELEUSIS SEMINAR

We have just had our first Eleusis Seminar on the theme of the Philosophy of Taoism.

Sixteen people took part and from immediate feedback it seems to have been a great success.
