My Instantaneous Thought

This is a picture of one of the Mendenhall ice caves located in Juneau, Alaska.  I saw it online the other day.  You know what my initial thought was, a nanosecond after seeing it for the first time?

This should be the background of the next Metropolitan Opera House production of Wagner’s DasRheingold.

Am I right or am I right?  Wouldn’t this be the perfect setting for the primordial river that runs through all Creation, where Gods and Giants and Dragons fight and frolick with super-men and -women?

I’m convinced.
