A child, perhaps eight years old, sits in her raincoat. Maybe she dreams of the sea and of adventure. Of everything that is yet to come. Across which waters will she travel?
Perhaps she has gone fishing with her grandfather one day long ago or recently, and heard the stories of when the herring used to run.
The stories of the past shape the present. What we do today becomes our future.
