"Ten, fifteen feet up, at hilltop, sat a sort of boulder, wedged waist-deep in the earth up there, perhaps having landed eons before, at high speed from a distant star. The Pulpit, they called it, though no one ever preached there. This mammoth rock with the weird bumps and pocks-its tumors, its acne-loomed there, unmoved. If you dared, you could sneak up from the back end trail and peek down here at the hymn-singers’ heads, bowed down or bored but all the same oblivious. And you’d be the eye in the sky."
