“Wow, everything really is bigger in Texas.”

Dwain and I were walking through the rental car terminal at the Dallas-Fort Worth airport. We had both arrived at American Airlines gates an hour earlier and were now navigating our way, via the rental car shuttle, to the Enterprise Rent-A-Car desk.

In the rental car building, beams of warm, Texas sun were streaming in through the large glass panes. In the middle of the marble floor in front of us, a giant metal bull towered nine feet into the air—nowhere close to touching the structure’s high ceilings.

“Definitely,” I agreed.

Flying in from Philadelphia and Baltimore respectively, Dwain and my flights had arrived within a half hour of each other. We still had another hour or two to wait for Michelle to arrive from South Carolina, though, so we had decided to pick up the car and “sightsee” until her flight landed. A half hour later, though, we had yet to make it out of the airport loop.

“Does that sign make any sense to you?,” Dwain asked me from the driver’s seat.

“First of all, tell me why there is a squiggle on that sign!,” I ranted. “Seriously, Dwain, that’s not an actual road sign! There are no squiggles! There are arrows, there are U-turns, but there is no such thing as a squiggle!”

Dwain laughed heartily.

When Michelle called several minutes later to tell us that her flight had landed safely, we couldn’t even find our way back to the terminal.

“Can you imagine what it must have been like to design a place like this?,” Dwain asked as we finally penetrated the airport entrance twenty minutes later.

“This place is huge.”

I'm looking for a story that was published in Insight sometime between 1976-1980. The title is "The Fountain" and it was written by Beth (Elizabeth Wilkins). She may not have used her read name. "The Fountain" is a powerful story. It was read to a packed church at a Friday night vespers at Andrews University (back in the 70's). I hope someone at INSIGHT can help me locate this article. Thanks Esther Knott Pioneer Memorial Church on the campus of Andrews University
