Uncaring of the labors of man
The towering waves tear souls and sails
Such fury has the mind awakened.
James Grigg from Rough Seas
we stand facing The Wall
his trembling fragmentation
palpable as he whispers “I need to sit down”
Heather Dupont from Faded Songs
Talk about a shit show.
No way they bring a boat like this to the dock in the US. No freakin way.
Rough seas meant yesterday that I got to surprise The Bean at school by picking her up at noon and then taking her for a special one on one day.
We went bowling and then to Friendlies for ice cream and then downtown to get a special surprise for Snoop Mad. Needless to say by the end of the day she was wiped out.
