Catching up with the plot


NOTE TO FOLLOWERS OF THIS SERIAL STORY — Thank you for following. If you are human, and lose track of the story from time to time, the “catching up with the story line” is posted monthly on the home page. This month begins a whole new century skipping a few years. So it is a new start for all.

The February Chapter (and before) concludes the 6th century part of this saga and sets the scene for Ana and Lazarus to enter a new era. The magical wonders of tribal Paganism and the Celtic influence on Christianity continue to exist into the 7th century and even today, but are less evolving having been etched in stone as tradition. Symbols of Christmas, popular adherence to Creed, liturgical practices and structure have become the foundation stones of a religion.

         The March Chapter “Passing Time” begins twelve years after the February chapter ended, and now it is 602 C.E., with Laz and Ana’s boys, Gabriel and Gregory, twelve-year-olds, nearly adults in that time. Now there are seven children in all. Going forward this family of farmers picks a pathway through new power structures rising from the dank tunnels and dungeons called, by some, the ‘dark ages.’
