Soliloquy in an International Cloister

Watch your step as Brother Lawrence takes you inside the monastery walls of a five hundred year-old international order. You'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll wish you had ignored your hormones and joined the monastery.

I can't believe the news today

Two articles in the local newspaper caught the brothers' attention today. One was an interview with some local witches.

Reporter: Is it true most covens do rituals naked?
Witch: "Ah - you mean sky-clad," said [the 52-year-old] Merovingia briskly. Many do, but since she and Cornelius founded the coven in 1992, "we just do not go there," she said.

Good decision. I do like the term "sky-clad", however.

The second article reported on research that suggests that some migraine headaches can be cured by sex. Hmm. We have been trying to lower our aspirin bill. I may have to further research this matter. In the interest of the brothers, of course.

I like skyclad too, but I don't think I'd go there either.

I have it on good authority that sex can give you migraines. So I've heard.

I understand, Heather. The jealous looks from the other women would bother you.

Aha! Conflicting information. This calls for even more investigation, Pog.

Uh BroLo, I have never known you to get migraines. I am wondering if their sudden occurance might be a direct result of this research study.

Ah, but maybe I was already doing research before you knew me. I'm a very inquisitive guy, you know.

Do let me know the results of your ... umm .. fieldwork, BroLo.

The Australians have discovered taht migraine is caused by sending electrivc pulses into the brain which suggests that either the sex-cure theory is nonsense or else the Wicca engage in some pretty bizzare practices.
