Sails

“Provide ship or sails adapted to the heavenly breezes, and there will be some who will not fear even that void.”

— Johannes Kepler

And I will show you something different from either
Your shadow at morning striding behind you
Or your shadow at evening rising to meet you;
I will show you fear in a handful of dust.
— “The Waste Land”, T. S. Eliot

Mukri, Estonia

Październikowa poranna mgła nad torfowiskiem. Wioska na jego brzegu nazywa się Mukri; według spisu z 2010 roku mieszkają w niej dokładnie trzy osoby.

Alone vs lonely

“There’s a thing about being alone and there’s a thing about being lonely, and they’re two different things. I was alone but I was not lonely. My background was as a fighter pilot in the air force, then as a test pilot–and that was mostly in fighter airplanes–so I was very used to being by myself. I thoroughly enjoyed it. I didn’t have to talk to Dave and Jim any more … On the backside of the Moon, I didn’t even have to talk to Houston and that was the best part of the flight.”

— Alfred Worden, Command Module pilot, Apollo 15
