Lesbian Vampire Killers

J: Zach asked me what a lesbian was yesterday?
D: really? What made him ask that?
J: he'd seen a poster for the film Lesbian Vampire Killers. Oddly enough at 8 years old he didn't need any explanation as to what a Vampire Killer was!

Rumi - Guest House

This being human is a guest house
Every morning a new arrival.
A joy, a depression, a meanness,
some momentary awareness comes
as an unexpected visitor.
Welcome and entertain them all!
Even if they are a crowd of sorrows,
who violently sweep your house
empty of its furniture,
still treat each guest honorably.
He may be clearing you out for some new delight.
The dark thought, the shame, the malice,
meet them at the door laughing,
and invite them in.
Be grateful for whoever comes,
because each has been sent
as a guide from beyond.
