you are so very correct! might i also suggest "on the road" by jack kerouac? spoiler alert: the epiphanal moment in this american beat classic is set where? in none other than dilley, texas! the character dean moriarty is conflicted over his career as a writer and decides to abandon life in the united states and embarks on a bus trip from new york city to join his friend (a character based on crazed beat poet-writer william s. burroughs). en route to mexico his greyhound bus stops in, yes, dilley, texas where he encounters a spectral figure of an old white-haired man standing in front of the dilley hotel who approaches him and commands him to "go. go back and write." whereupon he returns to new york and writes the greatest novel of the beat generation. check it out.

In the fall I myself started back home from Mexico City and one night just over Laredo border in Dilley, Texas, I was standing on the hot road underneath an arc-lamp with the summer moths smashing into it when I heard the sound of footsteps from the darkness beyond, and lo, a tall old man with flowing white hair came clomping by with a pack on his back, and when he saw me as he passed, he said, "Go moan for man," and clomped on back to his dark. Did this mean that I should at last go on my pilgrimage on foot on the dark roads around America? I struggled and hurried to New York, and one night I was standing in a dark street in Manhattan and called up to the window of a loft where I thought my friends were having a party. But a pretty girl stuck her head out the window and said, "Yes? Who is it?"

dear sir,
that is remarkably EERIE! perhaps some inter-dimensional portal exists in that precise spot. or perhaps it is transient, opening and permitting passage of some inter-dimensional entity at his will. perhaps i should return to dilley,(though it is said you can't go home) and stand there some hot summer night and wait for my spectral epiphany!
love,
