Main Gate

Derold Sligh

"We're always too quick to believe people when they say we're somewhere. When they say: You're in a church, we feel: A church, yes indeed, even if it's only a mill, or, let's say, a tavern. And when they say: You're on a hill, we feel: Ah, a hill. Even when, surrounded by a lot of flat country, we're in a hollow. This isn't important, though. The fact is that anywhere we are is where we are."

Gert Hofmann, The Parable of the Blind
