    Default Steinbeck

    I finally picked up a copy of Sea of Cortez (old worn hardback version) and upon opening it I come upon this:

    "A horse, a beautiful dog, arouses sometimes a quick emotion, but of inanimate things only a boat can do it. And a boat, above all other inanimate things, is personified in man's mind."

    Looking forward to a hot cup of tea and my reading chair...

    It is a good read! I trust you will enjoy the mention of the "Hanson Sea Cow" aka The Johnson Sea Horse.

    Very cool.
    I'm high on life. The trick is to grind it up and snort it.

    I think you could add planes, trains, cars, buildings, bridges, art, sculpture to the list, to name a few.
