… that on certain days of the late autumn, on those few days when the sun shines brightly, there is a place just outside this very room where, in the bricks of the vast regular paved courtyard, one can see the fingerprints of the maker, impressed on every brick.
I did not believe it myself, but for the the fact that the sun today discloses that very thing: four clean fingerprints, not so much impressed into each brick, but showing as a subtle reflective smoothing of the texture of each.
Alas, I have no camera. You’ll have to come to your own conclusions about the validity of this story.
