Martin looks at Klee.
Having had a remarkable relation to thunder and lightning all his life, Heidegger could hardly tear himself away from Klee's Bunter Blitz (Colorful Lightning).

It reminded us of the fir tree that lightning had struck down just on the upper side of the hut above Todtnauberg. The little gouache Ein Tor (A Gate), painted in 1939, the year of Klee's death, brought a deep silence upon Heidegger.

After a while he said in a somber tone, "This is the gate through which we all must at some time pass: death."
