Fool On The Hill


He was sitting on the wall under the great statue of St. Louis, gazing through the fog down Art Hill to the Grand Basin. I walked by under the wall, taking pictures. I said hi. He said hi. I asked him what he had with him. A glass chess set and a volume of Aristotle, he said. I asked if I could take his picture. He said sure. I did, said thanks, and then walked away with a tune in my head.

A glass chess set AND a volume of Aristotle? That's a guy I'd like to meet. Season's Greetings.

Seems an odd place to take a glass chess set and a volume of Aristotle together. Very interesting encounter.

He looks like quite a character.
