"Then, as I began to climb up into that gorge of masonry, up toward the Observatory hill with the woods lying dark upon its lap, a kind of quickening came again... A terrifying brilliancy, a sumptuous fear. Not the reality I had just stumbled through, but the true reality, dramatically plunging its beak and talons in my vitals and bearing me up on its wings."
