About Patrick Andrew O'Connell

I am standing on the seashore. The ship at my side spreads her white sails to the morning breeze and starts for the blue ocean. She is an object of beauty and strength and I stand watching her till at length she hands like a speck of white cloud just at the horizon where sea and sky meet. Then a moment longer, and someone at my side says, “She is gone.”


Gone? Gone where? Gone from my sight, that is all. She is still as beautiful and large in mast and hull and spar as when she left my side. She is still as strong and able to bear her load of living weight to her destined port. The loss of sight, her diminished size, is in me, not in her.


And just at that moment when someone at my side says “She is gone.” There are others watching her approach. Other voices on the far shore take up the glad shout, “Home she comes!”
