Anthony Lawlor - From the Mysteries category:

-The Temple in the House...
The sacred cannot be precisely defined. Each of us perceives it through the lens of a unique personal history.

There is something more to it, a mystery that is never totally grasped. (Anthony Lawlor)

Anthony Lawlor - From the Travel category:

Over time, each day has become another stretch on an endless pilgrimage road. The terrain of this sacred journey has become fluid and ever-shifting. Every step of the way is an arrival, but not a place to linger. (Anthony Lawlor)
