The Interrupted Class

Line of houses fronting onto the Nagold in Calw, Germany, 1932

I stood and looked, stood and listened, and for the first time that day I had a brief taste of the sweet eternity in which one knows nothing of time.

Aroused by the striking of the church clock, I came to myself with a start.
