Why I Am A Baha'i - Su Boddie

I don't know why. Only God can tell you that. But I know how: when my relationship broke up I moved into a duplex - women on one side, men on the other. I shared the top floor with Wanda and she used to allow me to browse her bookshelf for new treasures. I happened to notice an etched-glass panel she had, which I recognized immediately. 18 months prior to this day I sat in the back seat of a Karman Ghia and stared out the window at a building that none of us knew anything about. The picture that Wanda had was a view up one of the pylons of the House of Worship in Wilmette.
