the graces

Dear Sappho,

I enjoyed your piece on The Social Graces. You explained what you taught and why you taught it but you did not detail how you taught the Graces. The importance of the social graces is obvious, how one accomplishes it is not as obvious.

Sappho on the Social Graces

art poetry music

 

Dear Sappho,

Would you go into detail regarding the arts and subjects taught in your school for women and girls on Lesbos? Were there structured classes and standard subjects? Were there personal lesson plans for each student at each level of comprehension? What were considered the most important courses?

Invoking Aphrodite

 

Dear Sappho,

Who was Aphrodite and how much power did she have in the ancient world? I understand that Sappho invokes Aphrodite in some of her poem fragments. Can you tell me more?

Breaking Through Limitations

gender spectrum



Dear Sappho,

I don’t understand why so many GLBTQ people feel limited by their sexual identity. It seems like heterosexuals are really the ones limited to duality and strict gender conformity, whereas GLBTQ people are free to reinvent themselves in new genders and genres.  How about a pep talk for the homo team?

Setting Boundaries

clock

 

Dear Sappho,

My girlfriend is almost always late. For important events she runs 15-20 minutes late, for events she considers unimportant she could be as much as 1-2 hours late. I tell her that it shows lack of consideration and respect, she replies that’s their problem and that she is running her life on her schedule not theirs. Frankly I’m embarrassed by her behavior, what can I do to get her be on time? I’ve tried everything I can think of.

Same Sex Marriage Rights

Wedding rings

Dear Sappho,

My lover wants to get married and I don’t, she thinks marriage makes sense and that it is the most practical solution to meeting our needs both financially and emotionally I see that it has all the responsibilities without all of the privileges. She has been married before and I have not. I am happy to arrange our financial assets in other ways as joint ownership or as a trust but I am uneasy about the whole archetype of marriage. I’m afraid my lover will leave me if I don’t marry her...

Dear Sappho,

Were you influenced and limited by homophobia during your lifetime and if so how did it affect your writing, and your love life?

Girls Out Night

lesbian-party

Dear Sappho,

I am a lesbian in my thirties who has been is in a committed relationship for about three years now. My girl friend and I live together, we are very much in love, and we spend most of our time together, but - I’m missing time alone with my old friends. I miss just hanging out with the girls.

My girlfriend is a little insecure about me going out without her. I have tried to tell her it’s healthy for lesbians to hang out with other lesbians, but she believes it could lead to extra curricular sexual or romantic activities. I think it will lead to less co-dependency and more freedom to have, make, and keep friends. Can you help me try to convince her that a Girls Out Night is good for both of us?

Romance is Intangible

romantic lesbians

Dear Sappho,

Just want you to know that some of us are more romantic at heart in like others, and romance is intangible. My lover flirts with me using sexual and nonsexual nuances through out the day. In her loving way she intellectually and emotional teases me, and I love every minute of it. She doesn’t need to buy me expensive gifts or bring me flowers or jewelry often. I like that she doesn’t take her eyes off me when I talk to her.

She is interested in everything I say and do. She actively listens and participates in everyday conversation and daily activities. She makes me feel special, she does not judge me or put me down. I think you are right that you get the love you give, because I love her the same way in return.
