Amidst all the confusion about building walls and assigning tariffs, amidst threats of violence and continuous upheaval, Michael Meade turns his attention to the old imagination of a guarding and guiding angel of the soul. Following the subtle trail of angels found in cultures throughout the world, Meade examines the role of inspiration in modern life and the need for intermediaries that connect us to nature and to the divine. In contrast to the modern notion of a world made of subjects separated from objects, the presence of angels adds more presence to the world and can help keep us aligned with beauty, wonder and life purpose.
