FLASH OF INSIGHT
Believe it or not, there was a book
on the summit. Believe it or not.
One must see these things for oneself:
a metal box bolted to solid granite.
The book was old, but
untouched by wind or weather.
I thought to myself, if there
were a God, angry or not,
and who shot fierce barbs of lightning,
that wooden cross over there and then
would be first to go.
(URNERLAND, The Alps,
