seeing the bones of this ship on the shores of lake michigan
washed up on the camp arcadia beach
and wondering how they came to be here.
“the sea, the great unifier, is man’s only hope.
now, as never before, the old phrase has a literal meaning:
we are all in the same boat.
-jacques yves cousteau

there is one spectacle grander than the sea,

there is one spectacle grander than the sky,
that is the interior of the soul.
