"All the horrors of the half-known life."

An open-water scuba trip has been on my bucket list for years.
Then I saw the boat head back to port without me, and I felt something from the deep touch my leg.

For as this appalling ocean surrounds the verdant land, so in the soul of man there lies one insular Tahiti, full of peace and joy, but encompassed by all the horrors of the half-known life. God keep thee! Push not off from that isle, thou canst never return!” ― Herman Melville, Moby Dick


As always, the enhanced horror story and painting are on patreon.
Next blog horror story on Thursday... stay tuned.
