|This little chap is a guardian of the |
chapel at Exeter College
So imagine Seymour Hoffman looking a lot like Santa Claus but without the red suit. Then you will be able to see in your mind's eye, the figure Hand cuts, strolling across the ancient quad at Exeter College. Short, paunchy with the gait of a sailor; his snowy hair fluffs about in the summer breeze and a stream of acolytes trails after him, each waiting to get a word with the master. He's clearly a generous man, because he dispenses (hard-earned) wisdom with grace and without condescension.
|Exeter from Turl Street|
I watched him look at about eight charts this week at the Faculty of Astrological Studies Summer School, here in Oxford at Exeter College, and it was remarkable to see such a synthesis of knowledge and sensitivity.
