Storm at Sea

Storm at Sea by Karen Gadient, 2013

The fishermen know that the sea is dangerous and the storm terrible, but they have never found these dangers sufficient reason for remaining ashore.
— Vincent Van Gogh

Speaking of sea…

Just returned from tagging along on David’s business trip to North Carolina, where I got to see Natania again. Only a day together, but there was talking and and wine and food and games—so even a day was enough.

I’m grateful for the internet, but I wish I could see friends in person more often.

On the return flight, I had the honor of beginning to read her draft of Watcher of the Skies, whose narrator happens to be Poseidon. So: sea. Water and wonder. Life and depth and flow. It’s already one of those books I love to get lost in.

Sweetest melodies are those that are by distance made more sweet.
— William Wordsworth

  1. ’tis very much a book about getting lost. Glad to hear you’re home safe. Miss you already like whoa.

  2. Very, very nice Miss Karen. Glad to be a beach bum in the tempest. Those fishermen are brave people.

  3. Awesome! Who is that dark shape on the left supposed to be? It has a Venus of Willendorf look to it.

  4. As always, so moody and fascinating. And the quotes are perfectly stirring as well. 😉

  5. Love that quote. I’ve never heard it before. Truth, I don’t think of Van Gogh as quotable. I’ll guess I’ll have to rethink that.

  6. Thank you for always creating such energy and beauty.
