SINK OR SWIM - There are those who can not, or will not fit in. Determined to leave this dried up and cowed society on land and strike off into, well, deep water. A place where a man can get lost, or get found. Where there is room for the soul. It is supposed to be inhospitable, dangerous, a place to be cautious of. And that is what draws us to it. It is a place to test oneself. To see if you are worth your salt. When your feet no longer touch the bottom. Will you sink or will you swim?
