“The point is that deity does not live in the remote heavens, nor stay hidden and exclusive in cloisters and grottos no matter how appealing. The godpower must come out and be present with us where we are, where we live and act and feel, here in concrete and plastic, in airplanes and freeways and tenements and brutality and cancer and chemical additions and need and threat of nuclear war. Here is where we shall find, locate and establish the gods to help us on this continent of mixtures and dishevelment to help them feel at home.”

Judy Grahn, The Highest Apple
