One of my favorite books; I knew some of the references but not all. And, Calimac, thanks for the musical explanation--I love listening to music but know almost nothing of theory.

Nancy, you didn't say anything about "break a twig of holly." Possibly a Solstice/Christmas reference? (Holly, I mean. I've never come across the idea of breaking a twig as magical ritual; does anybody else here know about it?)

Oh, that "turning lightward" sentence is a delight!

I hadn't even thought about Sylvie's name and the wood references. With regard to Ariane's, I'm remembering Dave Carter's song "Mother, I Climbed" (terrible title, great song)...he addresses the Mother Goddess as Marianna, and the very last time we spoke, he was musing on some form of that name as representing the Goddess in many cultures he knew of.

Thank you for doing this, and for pointing me to the discussion.
