HAVE YOU EVER SAT ON THE BEACH, stared at the ocean, and wondered where on Earth you’d end up if you could swim real straight for a very long time?
I know I have.
I also know that I was wrong probably most times I tried to guess. When I was gazing at the Pacific Ocean when on a Vancouver beach I was “looking” at Russia and not at Japan. When I was staring at the horizon in Brittany, France, I was not looking towards New York City, but towards Newfoundland.
