I am transported to America

Ferrywindow

Voyaging / New York Harbor / Dec. 2007

"I love moving water, I love ships, I love the sharp definition, the concentrated humanity, the sublime solitude of life at sea. The dangers of it only make present to us the peril inherent in all existence, which the stupid, the ignorant, untravelled land-worm never discovers; and the art of it, so mathematical, so exact, so rewarding to intelligence, appeals to courage and clears the mind of superstition, while filling it with humility and true religion."

~ George Santayana (Chapter VIII: 'I Am Transported to America' in Persons and Places)
