So , out of the mist comes the ferryman to collect us . We wait . I have the coins it costs — not much . The quiet boat slips up and is tied briefly as we step aboard . Then the ferryman takes us away to another world . You would have to be there , really , to know the feeling . It won’t take long to go to the other shore .
No , no , no , it’s not the River Styx and the old guy in the pilot house is not Charon . Don’t read too much into it . We’re just going over to the garden island for a picnic , crossing part of the Odra River . Having a wonderful time . Wish you were here .
