Angelic

Do you believe in angels?

I'm not sure I'm entirely comfortable with the religious connotations that angels bring with them – but there is certainly something intriguing about the idea of some kind of spiritual entity watching over you.

Once at a dinner party, a woman leaned across to me and asked if I had any particularly strong ties with a young man with dark hair – I said I couldn't think of one.

She said she could see a young spirit man standing right behind my chair. I turned around, but there was apparently no one there.

Then again, maybe there had been something in the woman's vichyssoise.

I like the idea of angels not looking how you'd expect – not necessarily serene and lit with an ethereal glow.

After all, they do say, that angels walk among us.
