Quote of the Day – 11/29/2010

From On the Edge of the Dark Sea of Darkness by Andrew Peterson:

“The Dark Sea of Darkness was no darker than any other ocean I had sailed over. So I’m not sure where it got its name, unless maybe it’s because of the feeling you get when you’re out there in the middle of it. You feel like you might be guzzled up by any one of the giant critters what live beneath the surface. It could get its name from all the storms that whirl up out of it and kick you and your ship around like a kid with a ball. Every night there’s a fog that swallows up the stars and leaves you floating blind out there in the darkness. You get to feeling like you’ll never make it home and that even your best mates on the ship don’t really know you or want to, like they’d never notice if you toppled over the gunnel and plopped right in. Come to think of it, maybe the water was darker than normal.” (p. 144)
