And Just One More Thing About Holder's Book...

This is a quote from Nancy Holder's Dead In The Water, from page 373 of my copy, and I think it should serve as A MESSAGE OF HOPE FOR EVERY STRUGGLING HUMAN SEEKING A BETTER DESTINY:

" And he lay in the yacht and cursed all men and all gods...On the sixth day, he tore a piece of the canvas, bit by bit, all day; his fingers bleeding, his teeth ripped out, and he wrote in his own blood for help. He threw the bottle over the side and fell back, marvelling that he wasn't yet dead.

"And on the seventh day, the reply, the answer, in the green glass; it rose, it came to him, singing, with fish, and it spewed water into him, and it promised, it promised --

"And he promised.

"They became one."

That passage always CHOKES ME RIGHT UP.
