'We are reaching into the silence.
Are we the music, whilst the music plays?
Between the un-being and the being,
sounds a hollow rumbling of wings...
Am I here, or there, or elsewhere?'
(With My apologies to T.S. Eliot)

Thomas Pettigrew, in 1844 claimed that the ringing and rattling of silver bells has been esteemed inimical to witches and scorcerers.
