Solomon Gursky was here

This scene, of Solomon with his grandfather Ephraim, has stuck with me for years: “Ephraim slid a long knife free of their sled and planted it upright in the snow. He melted honey over the fire and coated the blade with it, the honey freezing immediately. ‘The wolf will come down later, start to lick the honey and slice his tongue to ribbons. Then the greedy fool will lick the blood off the blade until he bleeds to death. Do you understand?’” – Michel Vrana
