Overview

"Alan and I had been out on the water now for more than two hours, and were starting to tire. We began drifting more and more, letting the current propel us. I put my hand back into the water, and for a moment imagined myself connected to the Atlantic Ocean a few miles away.

—from "A Winter’s Sketch"
