    As we get older, many of us return to youthful memories of poems once significant to us. Outside their association with our youth, we may wonder what significance they have to us now.

Before The Da Vinci Code there lies a two-thousand year history of myth and symbolism, an attempt by Man to distill in a few figures the nature of himself and God. For those who desire to crack this code, the journey is long and arduous, but the reward may be...read more
