An odyssey of our own.

Last weekend, Wal and I played host to some old friends who we have not seen for some time. While we have kept in touch on and off for the last 20 years or so, they have not been up to Woodlands View since Wal and I took on the project.

Our guests, Florence and Kenneth Wood, were amongst the first people to attend the astronomy courses that were run by Linda Simonian in the 1990s. As it turns out they were putting their astronomical learning to amazing use and even invited Linda to work closely with them on a very exciting venture.

Florence and Kenneth are the authors of Homer’s Secret Iliad and Homer’s Secret Odyssey. These books are based on years of research undertaken by Edna Leigh, Florence’s mother, and by Florence and Kenneth themselves in order to unlock the astronomical knowledge that has been hidden within the epics for millennia.

"Homer’s epics ‘represent an ancient people’s thoughts related to the science of astronomy and expressed in the form of elaborate narrative poetry'."

It was wonderful to be able to show them around Woodlands View and we can modestly report that they had a splendid visit and were very impressed with everything that we have achieved.

We would just like to express our gratitude to a couple of generous and well respected friends for sharing their stories with us.

Hours of Fun.
