Response to this review:
Dear Lindsay, Thank you so much for such eloquence. I am deeply deeply honoured by your words. It gives me great joy to know there are others who understand and are able to articulate the sacred world. Sometimes it feels so lonely. Your perception gives me strength. Thank you.
