City of Sun Spirits

I've travelled once again to Phoebe Marie Holmes' "Celestial City in the Sun," where myriads of angels live in a golden realm of paradisiacal daylight. Here are some of their large residential complexes, which are built with garden terraces and big windows. In the spirit world the laws of physics don't apply, but I've decided to use gravity here anyway rather than just having things float around. Although there are probably spirit regions here where that happens. What looks like clouds in the skies are actually more buildings, residences, spiritual bureaucratic offices, and solar spirit shopping centers. If someone sponsored it I could probably make another one of my large obsessively detailed fantastic cities out of Holmes' visionary recital, but that would take forever. I hope that there are light cycles in the Sunworld, so that there is natural shadow and darkness to rest one's spirit eyes.

This very much matches the tone that is aimed for, and the title. It's funny, the style is so singular here, and it reminds me of something, but I can't say what...something to do with medieval style perhaps. I've been coming across medieval a lot today. Isn't that funny when in art, a style is so singular, but you can't put a word to it? It just IS. Kind of appropriate here, as this IS a transcendental place, beyond things, and in this case, beyond categorization :)
