Carpe Diem #375: Krasnoyarsk

status binds love’s choice
refuge sought in holy hands
flames know no lines

Emblem of the Inquisition

For Carpe Diem #375: Krasnoyarsk. Our next stop on the train trip with Paulo Coelho in Aleph. Here Paulo delves deeper into “The Ring of Fire” and discovers more of the common history between him and Hilal. In a past life Hilal was the daughter of a rich man while Paulo was a poor boy. They fell in love, but their respective statuses prevent them from ever marrying.

Past Paulo joins the Dominican Order, the order responsible for prosecuting the Inquisition, and ends up condemning past Hilal to be burned.

For a more in-depth look at the city and the story, head over to Carpe Diem.

Hope you enjoy.

Happy Reading and Writing!
