Example text

It is their heart, one way or another. Le Corbusier, pensive, looks up from his painting to squint through the golden section of a precisely framed window vent, out across the blue stretches of the Mediterranean. The air without is so hot. Within, it is mediated, controlled, and pleasant. His sometime friend Alvar Aalto turns, in a gesture of convivial flattery, and glances across the partially overgrown, partial ruin of a courtyard, through the trees and out across a cold lake in central Finland.

He has flown for twenty years. On his longest soaring flight he was aloft for four and a half hours, reaching an altitude of 10,200 feet. He has an assistant who sometimes runs alongside trying to steady your wing. There is a strong encounter with your youngest self. Someone is running alongside as you try to maintain balance. The last time this ever happened my father was teaching me to ride a bicycle. I can remember the exact spot where I looked behind to see if he was still holding me level; he was standing far away.

But their numbers have increased dramatically so that hardly a day goes by that you don’t see a few in the sky. Especially the ones that are shaped like flying saucers. If you see them low on the horizon, they look exactly like a flying saucer or a ladies’ hat. You can see why people call them flying saucers. The media, the politicians, governments are always reluctant to admit the existence of anything they can’t slap a tax on or stick in a box. Something that can’t be immediately explained tends to undermine their authority, ’cause they’re supposed to be able to explain everything.
