stand on the highest pavement of the stair
CHRIST THE LORD
The Road to Cana
By Anne Rice
A New York Times Book Review
“I had to see it beyond hamlet or town or camp,” Yeshua says,
embarking on his road of no return.
“I had to seek it where there was nothing but the burnt sand,
and the searing wind, and the highest cliffs of the land.
I had to seek it as if it was nowhere and as if it contained nothing
— when in fact it was the palm of the hand that held me.”
To put it more nervily, and of course Ms. Rice does:
“Well, now I
knew just what it meant to be the man who knew he was God.”
A most befitting backdrop to Eliot's poetry !
