beautiful dissolution

“I lay on the bowsprit, with the water foaming into spume under me, the masts with every sail white in the moonlight towering above me. I became drunk with the beauty and singing rhythm of it, and for a moment lost myself–actually lost my life. I was set free … dissolved in the sea, became white sails and flying spray, became beauty and rhythm and the high dim-starred sky. … I belonged within a unity and joy to life itself.”
~ Eugene O’Neil
