'But the thirteenth child is hidden, for that child holds many secrets of magick, and is one by itself.
This unknown child can be found only with the joyful union of astrology and astronomy.'

'How Short a While'
How short a while - eternities gone by -
It is since book and candle, half the night,
Consumed the hours..................
Love flows around me with its calm and blessing;
I can but let it take me, and be still,
And know that you beloved, though far from me,
All night are with me - comforting, carressing.'
"There is a power that bound her and a power that will release her. Very soon I will wield that power myself."
Isolde Balliol 'The Magician's Nephew'
