They Know the Language of the Waves on the Sea

Sally J. Bright's avatar Sally J. Bright

The piece is about the undulating dance of surface waters and currents atop oceans and large lakes. It is about the ancient ability of travelers to read the motion of the waves in order to navigate across large distances, by feeling the wave motion as vibrations transferred through their boat's hull to the traveler’s bodies.
