"In this pleasant gem, Sally reminds us that 'to get well a sensual spirituality is to get well a biblical one.' From 'The banquet of Fools' to 'Liturgies of Naming,' she stresses the significance of formality being significant. confident that artists and linguists are one of the prophets of our time, she encourages us to name on their mind's eye. On pilgrimage or at the labyrinth, she is consistently asking 'What time is it now?' Time, it sort of feels, to be playmates with God. Have fun!"
