Quintessential poetry. I see the thousand-year cycle mix of mythology and archaeology, the more things change, the more things stay the same, Ian...a pleasure to be in your den tonight...Be well. Blessed Be.

An old world, not quite dead, but almost... Where has the soul gone?
Intriguing traces of Life and History.
