Things are what they are until they cease to be. An empty van is still a van if it is full of boxes. A box is a curious thing, it does not exist alone. An empty van is only funny as a possibility to fill up … to the top.
From the Arabic al-qubbah and the architectural term alcove, which refers to a recess in a room, a hidden place in a wall, usually covered up.
