” …on a sailboat,
surrounded by sea with no land in sight, without even the possibility of sighting land
for days to come?
To stand at the helm of your
I want that, one more time.
I want to be in the Piazza del Campo in Siena.
To feel the surge as 10 racehorses go thundering by.
I want another meal in Paris, at L’Ambroisie, at the Place des Vosges.
I want another bottle of
wine. And then another.
I want the warmth of a woman and a cool set of sheets.
One more night of jazz at the Vanguard.
I want to stand on the summits and smoke Cubans and feel the
sun on my face for as long as I can.
Walk on the Wall again.
Climb the Tower.
Ride the River.
Stare at the Frescos.
I want to sit in the garden and read one more good book.
Most of all I want to sleep.
I want to sleep like I slept
when I was a boy.
Give me that, just one time.
That’s why I won’t allow that punk out there to get the best of me, let alone the last of me….”
~Raymond Reddington
