Celtic Knots

Love does not remain within the heart, it flows out to build secret tabernacles in a landscape.
~John O'Donohue, Anam Cara: A Book of Celtic Wisdom

Celtic knots are cool...and it's quite interesting that a knot has become symbolic of all things Celtic.

Really liked the Celtic Circle Shirt (though still trying to figure out how one would wear it. ;-)
