You get into it by means of levels and within the such a lot traditional approach yet, while you are correct in the middle of it, you're without warning astonished and wonder how on the planet all of it happened. If, for instance, you place to sea on a wood raft with a parrot and 5 partners, it's inevitable that ultimately you are going to get up one morning out at sea, maybe a bit higher rested than as a rule, and start to consider it. On one such morning I sat writing in a dew-drenched logbook: —May 17. Norwegian Independence Day. Heavy sea. reasonable wind. i'm prepare dinner this present day and located seven flying fish on deck, one squid at the cabin roof, and one unknown fish in Torstein’s dozing bag. . . . right here the pencil stopped, and an identical proposal interjected itself: this can be fairly a queer 17th of May—indeed, taken all around, a such a lot bizarre life.

It used to be your damned concept, yet i feel it’s grand. ” He moved his feet 3 bars up and went on analyzing Goethe unperturbed. outdoors the cabin 3 different fellows have been operating within the roasting solar at the bamboo deck. They have been half-naked, brown-skinned, and bearded, with stripes of salt down their backs and looking out as though they'd by no means performed anything than drift wood rafts westward around the Pacific.
