The Cornerstone

Heliopoli_Full_EX53The cornerstone of Heliopoli has been unearthed.

It is a simple block of granite into which is carved the following: August 8, 1971.

Is it any wonder, then, that the city of Heliopoli is dramatic; fiery; creative; exuberant; loyal to a fault but sometimes unforgiving; given over to passions great and small; and is often perceived as foolish when it merely has, always, its head in the clouds?

The city of Heliopoli is a Leo.
