I observed the lighting that have been those angels, flying right here and there, in streaks of impossible to resist brilliance . . . I felt love round me during this monstrous and seamless realm of sound and lightweight . . .

Example text

Farmers had to feed them other things. People are likely to have been worshipping the Sun for thousands of years in some way. When people first walked the Earth 200,000 years ago, they would have looked up at the sky and would have had to have noticed the Sun, Moon and stars. The Sun, being visible in daylight, would have been associated with lighter skies, clear visibility and feeling warmer in some way. However in Neolithic times (between 4,000 and 6,000 years ago), people have been able to forge a link between themselves and the celestial bodies seen in the sky.

Dragons themselves are solar creatures, as fire comes out of their nostrils. By Christian times, however, the mythical creature was seen in the West as a representation of Satan, often being associated with the dark (as opposed to the light of God). These dragons tend to have serpent-like tails, which, when tied into a knot, indicate that the creature has been vanquished, as seen in many artists’ representations of the Saint George and dragon story. Saint George is often linked to Michael, the Archangel protector in the Bible, and is often depicted as slaying a dragon.

Wreaths are still used for decoration in homes at Christmas. The winter solstice was when the Sun reached its furthest point south, the shortest day. The Celts thought that the Sun stood still for 12 days at the time of the solstice, around December 21. The yule log was burned to provide light on the darkest of winter days. Celts also celebrate the spring equinox (March 21–22), the first day of spring, which is when day and night are of equal length. This division of the year includes Oestre, or Easter.
