"This is an out-of-time, out-of-season image: no movement, nobody on deck to watch the sea go by, and distant drift ice on the horizon (that gave me another horizontal line to play with). My recollection is of some level crossing on a ferry between Nova Scotia and Newfoundland, just the throb of the engines and that straight, relentless push through the sea."
