Steinbeck Ponders the Beautiful Abyss

Ocean fascination and appreciation Steinbeck-style:

"For the ocean, deep and black in the depths, is like the low dark levels of our minds in which the dream symbols incubate and sometimes rise up to sight...And even if the symbol vision be horrible, it is there, and it is ours. An ocean without its unnamed monsters would be like a completely dreamless sleep.

-- John Steinbeck from Log from the Sea of Cortez
