Where in this world can we go to feel safe? This anthology is built around the concept of Sacred Space, a place -- either of the world or of the imagination -- where we can follow our own drift, find a place in which we can be more ourselves. It can be as mundane as a bath, or as disparately exotic as Romania, the Florida swamp of the Everglades, or hitting the road to the Australian outback with an emu and a kangaroo in tow. Even the ancient balm of the sun or of the colour blue can be a place of refuge and introspection. The pieces in this thought-provoking collection remind us that the search for the sacred remains powerful in a materialistic world.
