Errors like straws float to the surface. Whoever wants to look for pearls must dive deep.
— John Dryden
The last dives in the Célé (the water having really cooled down …) gave me a glimpse of pretty things hidden since I opened my eyes under the water. In particular the back of the first floating leaves. Under the veil of green water suffused with the light of the end of summer, their appearance is quite different, they become golden halos in luminous circles.
