The Soul of Sicily

5gccC

“Or maybe Sicily is a vortex that pulls some people in – a center of the universe, like the Omphalos at Delphi, a navel stone that connected some inner world to the outer. Here the bedrock hums with hidden energy. Sicilians use it to build their houses, churches and streets. Their lives saturate the rock, carving niches, and pooling in the voids. Like water, the people taste of the stone that contains them. Sicily is a hard place to leave.”
– Theresa Maggio, “The Stone Boudoir”
