Book Excerpt for the Day

    The sea, inconceivably vast, constrained for landlubbers by a curved horizon, had opened itself and fallen on Mape.  Struggling towards the mill, delirious with exhaustion and worry, it seemed to Ralf that sea and Church were of the same.  Under a deceptive surface, both concealed teeming complexities, unknown terrors, inky and sinister depths.  Both were capable of wreck as well as creation: for both were manifestations of the Almighty, and unless he destroyed he could not also create. 

(from The Tide Mill by Richard Herley)
