Ode to A. L. (2019)


May I lead you to the shores of a mountain lake? The sky is blue, the water green and everything is profoundly peaceful. Mountains and clouds are reflected in the lake, and so are houses, farmyards, courtyards and chapels. They do not seem man-made, but more like the product of God’s workshop, like the mountains and trees, the clouds and the blue sky. And everything breathes beauty and tranquility.
