Do you remember when you started to ask the big spiritual questions; the ones which kept you awake at night? For me spiritual growth began in the night light of Saturn.

The day after the accident, I collected my mother’s purse from the police officer who was at the scene. Small shards of windshield glass were wedged in the crevices.
