One woman seeks to dive deeper into the questions after years of frustration of not finding answers.

"Each of us human, full of longing, reaching out with our whole selves for something impossible to touch. Still, we are reaching, reaching"

Finding that prayer, lullabies, AA meetings, rituals, a yoga practice, meditation all brought about a sense of peace to a backdrop of Sept. 11, a gravely ill child, and a strained relationship with her mother even if it wasn't performed in a synagogue, church, or temple.
