This was, wow! Very evocative. I’d love to see more of these types of articles on Medium. Amazing.
The ocean imagery reminded me a little bit of a scene in Cloud Atlas I previously wrote about. In this scene, the father-in-law of someone called Adam wants to discourage him from joining the Abolitionists movement. He says:
“No matter what you do it will never amount to anything more than a single drop in a limitless ocean.”
But Adam’s response is beyond perfect:
“What is an ocean but a multitude of drops?”
Thank you for your article!
