Part 5. IN THE WAKE OF THE VOYAGE

A ship’s wake is a longer, stronger, and deeper version of those bubbles at the bow. It eventually gets absorbed back into the surface texture of the water through which it cuts. It is always to some degree retrospective as well as forward looking.  But it does sometimes leave a legacy more indelible than its own evanescent path through the ocean–as a result of whatever has been experienced, achieved, or symbolized by the buoyant craft and nautical men and women who have driven it through the sea.
