"Unmoor The Boat..."

"Unmoor the boat, we could go down river. History is a collection of found objects washed up through time. Goods, ideas, personalities surface towards us and then sink away and some we hook out and others we ignore. And as the pattern changes so does the meaning. We cannot rely on the facts. Time that returns everything, changes everything... a bundle of abandoned clothes. The end of one identity and the beginning of another. History is a madman's museum. I think I understand some of this, but it's all subject to the tide. Unmoor the boat. Part miracle part madness. My life is a series of set sails and shipwrecks. I run aground, I cut loose, the rim is dangerously near the waterline. I feel like a saint in a coracle. Head thrown back, sun on my throat. Unmoor the boat."
- Jeanette Winterson
