The Eye of the Shadow - James McV - Eclectica Magazine v15n2

There is no sound quite like the wail of an approaching gale as you sit at anchor, but if you imagine standing in a dark subway tunnel and hearing the rumbling approach of an invisible speeding train as you stand on the dark edge of the tracks, you’d be close; it rushes at you from afar, a distant wail at first, and then closes quickly filling the air with a rumbling roar that consumes all of your senses. Inside a boat the sound becomes solid, pushing, shaking, and twisting the craft as if you were contained within a ballistic missile hurtling through dark uncertain space.
