Looking forward and looking back (with six days left)

Olivia Carson, A Watch

Sitting on the quarterdeck in the hot sun and listening to my classmates present the many things they’ve discovered through their research projects, I reflect on a smaller discovery of my own: my favorite sentence in the world is, “Nobody really knows.”

Between The Land And The Deep Blue Sea

Colm Blodget, A Watch, Gap Year Student

Dawn watch often times is the state of slight delirium and unwavering turmoil; however on this particular morning its tempestuous nature was halted by the frenzied cry of “Land Ho!” Thirteen days we had not seen land, and the unlit horizon transformed into the refreshing glow of Turks & Caicos.
