"Voyaging through strange seas of thought, alone ..." William Wordsworth

Marvelous.


Certain it is, the place still continues under the sway of some witching power, that holds a spell over the minds of the good people, causing them to walk in a continual reverie. They are given to all kinds of marvelous beliefs, are subject to trances and visions, and frequently see strange sights, and hear music and voices in the air.

Washington Irving, from "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow"
