Friday Flashback

Apparently, the legendary “rogue waves” of sailor lore are more than a just a myth, and can reach heights of 80 feet on the open sea.  On October 28, one such wave swept over Boothbay Harbor, Maine.  The 12 foot high wall of water would have caused catastophic damage, experts said, had it not struck at low tide.

But water, the source of all life and all blessing, has become increasingly a source of destruction.  Hurricanes Katrina, Ike, and Gustav, not so long after the Pacific Rim Tsunami, suggest it’s time for another look at these reflections on our relationship with the world we live in.
