One Eye on the Ocean
"And when the darkness came and promised me peace through death, I felt no longer able to resist it all. So I stopped fighting altogether. For some reason this surrender halted the tide in what I now think of as a supremely fantastic moment of my existence, where part of me did actually die; the false part. And part of me was reborn; the true part. And I began to notice something that I had never known, and that was that I could live with peace rather than die with it."
-Chapter 10, "The Stand of the Tide"
