Shipping Out

George R. R. Martin said “I had an encyclopedia with a list of flags in the back, so I would look at all these flags of China and Liberia and England and Denmark and whatever, and I learned all the different flags, and I tried to imagine what it would be like to be voyaging on some of these ships.” So too have I George, so too have I. To venture far away from where I was right then when I felt low and that I had nowhere to go. I imagine like most things, the dream is far better than the reality but I would have liked to been on one of those cargo ships or oil tankers sometime journeying to some far off destination where I couldn’t be found.
