Seeing things from afar

I'm much of the way through the Amber Spyglass now. I've liked both it and its immediate prequel better than the Golden Compass. After all this, I still don't feel much empathy with Lyra, although I like her daemon. Speaking of her daemon, I should find out what 'Pantaleimon' means. I ran across a medieval painting of St. Panataleimon in the art textbook I was lifting bibliography from earlier this week, and it was a small world coincidental moment, since I'd been reading the Subtle Knife around that time.
