Holy Fish

Every time we have extreme weather like we did last night, I thank God I'm not out there in our boat. I think about fishermen a lot when we're sailing because I see them at work. You have to have a lot of courage to do what they do, but I  can't stand the idea of them doing anything else - and either can they. They're scoundrels and their wives saints. The ocean will morph them into what they hunt in the end - a final and peaceful act of supreme individuation.

I did this painting last night and have absolutely no idea where it came from but am guessing it may have something to do with Carl Jung. It was his birthday.
