I read The Mysterious Composition of Tears in 48 hours, resonating with the colors, the trees, music, the strangeness of the human heart and the infallibility of the Universe’s heart. (This is) a playful, a joyous book in the midst of all the crises. Joanna Macy said that we needed new sacred texts. There are places where (Sharon Heath’s) descriptions of the tragedies, the beauty, the ineffable, rise to that level. Sacred words.
