A notebook, a stream of thoughts, emotions, quotations from the great works of sea fiction, and black and white photos of young sailors on board, all to tell us how the sea affects people’s lives and changes their perspective, even in the most ordinary aspects of life. A prompt to sea life and an unapologetically passionate thesis on the primacy of salt water.
“Getting used to it is impossible.”
