The presence of that hill where many wonders had been worked was heavy, like a weight in the air about them. As they came onto the hillside they thought of how the roots of it were deep, deeper than the sea, reaching down even to the old, blind, secret fires at the world’s core.

You can see the original at the West Linn Public Library during the month of February. Prints and cards available on RedBubble.
