Sounds fascinating, Helga! I have to admit I’m a bit of a mystic myself. I’m glad Mary can relate to that. That said, I tend to shy away from overly froufrou, New Age-y references. I’m not the cosmic muffin sort. I like my mysticism couched in neuroscience, philosophy, history, cultural studies, and the like. Could Sarah be a closet mystic too? If so, how does she take her shots of juju? Does she take a yoga class at her gym or a Tai Chi course at the corner Y or perhaps indulge in a monthly therapeutic massage? Does she read fortune cookies in her Chinese take-out or sneak a peek at her daily horoscope? Just some thoughts.
