Ten Things I Have Learned About The Sea

This pacific video, by Lorenzo Fonda, filmed on board the “Portland Senator” en route from Los Angeles to Shanghai in December 2008 is one of many pieces that have culminated into a current preoccupation I have with the sea. Other pieces include the books Peter Duck by Arthur Ransome, The Wanderer by Sharon Creech, Hello, Sailor by author Andre Sollie and illustrator Ingrid Godon, as well as recent walks to the river with the hopes of seeing the tide change, a weekend away along the English coast, and a boat trip up the Thames to Greenwich complete with a visit to the Maritime Museum. Each piece has revealed the sea as a site of adventure, terror, longing, romance, and general intrigue and the video sums up many of those ideas quite nicely.
