In the second century AD there lived in Alexandria a woman named Hypatia who traveled to Athens and Italy to study mathematics and philosophy. She became the head of the Platonist school in Alexandria around the year 400 AD and taught the ideas of Plato and Aristotle. She lived during the time of the great Library when every ship that docked at Alexandria’s port had to give up their books to be copied for the libraries collection.
I see Hypatia as the spirit keeper of the holy books, those filled with the myths and traditions of ancient cultures, but also the books of the greater library of the cosmic mind. Each of us in our own way can be a keeper as we remember and share our stories both written and oral with the world.
