A Song of Water – ST 2017.02.17

“The deep roar of the ocean. The break of waves on farther shores that thought can find. The silent thunders of the deep. And from among it, voices calling, and yet not voices, humming trillings, wordlings, and half-articulated songs of thought. Greetings, waves of greetings, sliding back down into the inarticulate, words breaking together. A crash of sorrow on the shores of Earth. Waves of joy on–where? A world indescribably found, indescribably arrived at, indescribably wet, a song of water…” ― Douglas Adams, The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy
