Seafaring Sunday: Time's Revenge

Time's revenges are beyond a man's foretelling. It may be that in some far distant day, when the grass is growing green on the slag-heaps of the north, and the last "gusher" has ceased its gushing forever, then, it may be, there will arise somewhere a new breed of seafarers, who shall re-learn, slowly, painfully, step by step, as did their forefathers, the ancient and honourable craft of mast and sail.

I believe that it will be so, Pauline.

And let those who are nutty and arcane in the interim hold on to that thing worth teaching.
