A Not-So Anonymous Gift

December 26, 2012 § Leave a comment

It turns out the crystal sculptures displayed throughout the hallways in the lobby of the Keep are gifts from the Royal Norwegian embassy. Otto told me this yesterday as I was getting the mail. Why didn’t I know this before? For years I’ve wheeled past the display cases, and always assumed that our cooperative’s board of directors had purchased their gleaming contents. The sculptures are supposed to represent organic life forms from the Norwegian Sea, an unspoken reminder of the royal history of the Keep, or at least the ground beneath it, but Otto hinted of their otherworldly origins, saying they may not be made of crystal or anything known to man.

Otto reveals a royal link.

Otto reveals a royal link.

Otto asked: “Do you believe in ghosts? Or invisible worlds?”

When I asked him what he meant, he squeezed my shoulder and said he was just testing me, and to just forget about it. How vexing!
