Alms for Oblivion

A very interesting philosophical blog, see below for a taster:

Fair Helen
Helen of Troy, shining from Priam's porch,
her absent-minded gray gaze telling all
the dying, striving warriors below
that she suffices, the glorious cause
for Hector's and Achilles' men to die for,
held coiled within her a yard or two of shit,
of fecal matter waiting for its truth
to find the Turkish air and disappear.

The purplish blue of her well-hidden bowels
was not the sea-mist tint with which her gaze
accepted Menelaus and the horde
of men adoring her for giving them
the rage to die. The shit below, the shit
within are incidents; she turns and shines.

Green amethyst

Just added this nice relaxing blog on green amethyst:
From Olja

I am a crystal lover from Belgrade and green amethyst is one of my favorite stones. Apart from appreciating their stunning visual appeal, I like exploring the metaphysical meaning of stones and crystals. In this regards amethyst is one of the most powerful stones.
