Ah, you bring paganism into everything. That being said, I do happen
to regret the loss or
decline of Gaelic pagan beliefs that have lasted into our time: water
horses, second sight,
forerunners etc. Of course there's still a certain amount of this stuff
kicking around in Cape
Breton and Scotland and Ireland, but you wonder how long it can last.
