The Abbotess and the Flying Bone

When the fisherwoman wades through the river and briefly stops to lift up her apron to urinate, and then again, to lift onto her shoulders the body of someone who has drowned, caught between the stones, then everything becomes clear: this woman is capable to do anything... (Elke Schüttelkopf)
