“A terrible thing happens when you water-ski. After you release the rope, you keep skimming over the water for a while, free. But there comes an inevitable moment who your speed fails to sustain your forward progress. The surface of the water breaks  like glass. The depths open up to claim you. That was how I felt on land, watching the Object ski past. That same plunging, hopeless feeling, that emotional physics.”

-Jeffrey Eugenides, Middlesex
