What is the strange power of Sofia's icon? . . . his eyes passed over Sofia's icon, and he again was surprised by the brilliance of its colors. Picking the object up, he observed that, in addition to its unusual glow, there was now an even stranger visual effect: all four of the icon's borders had begun to shimmer like a fl uid, moving slightly to and fro in violation of its rectangular form. Oddly, when he focused on any one of the edges, he found that it quickly became stable and ordinary, while the remaining edges continued to move in the periphery. George was about to put the icon back on his desk when he noticed that it possessed a strong and beautiful fragrance, reminiscent of cedar. Although he couldn't identify the odor, he knew he had smelled it before, long ago. It was the type of smell that brought back memories-not memories of specifi c events, but rather vague memories of feelings that hadn't been experienced in a long time. He placed the icon on his desk, but continued trying to identify the smell and the memories it evoked. Sitting back in his chair, he closed his eyes.
