that the concept of the particle accelerator
he was working on to destroy the palace

become the template for another temple

Once a month, in early spring once a week, he would
drive up to the mountains, then walk for about thirty
minutes to a small creek he had discovered. There he
would pick watercress & dandelion leaves, wild straw-
berries in the spring. The dandelion leaves he turned
into wine, the watercress he added to his sandwiches
& salads. In late evening, in early spring, he would sit
on the small balcony of his 37th floor studio apartment
eating the strawberries, looking out across towards the mountains, bridging the gap between.
