The comet, the mysterious wanderer between heaven and earth whom the ancients called the hair star, promises to all of us
that wondrous ability of the seasons and plants and of the souls of men to come back to meet again in some preordained way. In later times man developed a superstitious fear of comets: perhaps he had discovered that they were always announcing the beginning of a new age. The comet brings news and gifts from strange heavens and
and invites its children to travel, to seek the holy grail, to go on an everlasting
like the three wise men of old and actually or figuratively to arrive at their secret goal, the birth of some new inner sun.
