“Sun and moon risings are powerful experiences. First, ocean and sky are one. You could not tell them apart. Slowly a fine line appeared in the distance – the horizon

I first had this dream when I was a teenager, living in Austria, watching ships sail up and down the Danube. Shortly after moving to Seatoun in Wellington, while walking at the beach, I watched a cargo ship sailing past. This brought back my dream, into the present.

The container ship on which Birgit Krippner sailed, the Spirit of Auckland, stopped in the Panama Canal before heading to Columbia and finally Philadelphia where she disembarked.
