Abstract: '...is an exploration of religion as vision and insight, as creation and imagination, as a worldview of the ordinary. Lynda Sexson shatters cliches and enters the world of play and dreams, myth and metaphor to uncover a universe in which, through the author's story-telling power, we become open to the spontaneous recovery of sacred symbol, to the wonder of memories, to the making of sacred text and ritual, to the dream as Scripture, and most of all to the divine reality at our fingertips, where we are as we are.'
