QUOTE OF THE DAY
"I knew a lot of lads who did go to sea who would come back and tell me stories about the exotic places they'd visited and how tough life was at sea, what it was like going through a storm and throwing up and wanting to die and visiting brothels and all this incredibly exotic stuff. That life always seemed romantic to me. In fact if my father ever gave me one piece of advice it was 'go to sea'. He wanted me to go to sea. The idea of 'And Yet' is really that it's the romance of the sea - somebody coming back with all of that stuff and visiting home and wondering, actually, where he lives. Does he belong here any more?"
