The Question of Angels: Ruth Farmer’s New Column

Ruth Farmer, director of the Individualized MA program, just launched her column in The Magazine of Yoga with an angelic bang: writing about angels. She writes:

Imaginary, right? Yes, until one shows up –

You are probably thinking: But aren’t Angels figments of humans’ imaginations, just as clowns and dolls are? Yes and no and it’s irrelevant. What is relevant is that Angels have a façade that is just human enough to be acceptable. At first. This façade gives them the brief seconds needed for them to open their mouths and say something completely unreasonable to the stunned human beings they appear before.
