high rise elevator
a stranger says
Jesus loves you

that reminds me of...

long ago I visited a monastery (nuns), in the hall a cross (natuarally), in the visitors-room a cross (naturally) and in the elevator (!) a cross too

and under this cross a metal sign > star lift, ...kilo, phone number...

best wishes,

Thanks for sharing that, Angelika.

The theme, Aurora, has evolved without any plan. The experience recounted in "rise" and the actual writing of the ku simply reminded me of this episode, which occurred a year or so ago in New York.
