Now my research has taken me down many strange paths of late - Orphic mythology, Kali cults, theosophy just to name a few - but now I'm feeling drawn to investigating the broader spiritual consciousness of Victorian and Edwardian England (you never know, a book may come out of it!). I just ordered a book entitled "Strange and Secret Peoples, Fairies and Victorian Consciousness" by Carole G. Silver. Seeing as it's from Oxford University Press it appears to be fairly erudite, if a little obscure. I'm intrigued and eager to read it. This kind of book research will at least take my mind off the fact that my flight to London on Monday was cancelled and thus, for the moment at least, a much anticipated on-site research visit has had to be postponed:(.
