What remains

Yesterday, I picked up 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea at a small independent bookstore in Nashville. I’m enjoying Captain Nemo’s many outbursts. “The sea is an immense desert where man is never alone, for he feels life pulsating all about him. The sea is nothing but the means which permits man to lead an almost supernatural existence; it is all movement and love.” That’s a little bit like life on the road.
