To the Temple

This is a nondescript sign on a back road of East Anglia, England. But to anyone who has read W. G. Sebald’s The Rings of Saturn, this sign might (and it does) announce the site of Alec Girrard’s model of the Temple of Jerusalem.

Each sign is a sea of possibilities. And so many signs have locked trap doors that can only be opened by those who hold the right ‘key.’
