She had interminably turned upon her tracks, she had crossed and recrossed
her haphazard path till it resembled nothing so much as a puzzling maze of pencilled lines without a meaning.
After a day thus profitably spent, they recrossed
the river, but landed on the northern shore several miles above the anchoring ground of the Tonquin, in the neighborhood of Chinooks, and visited the village of that tribe.
We saw nothing but the gas lamps, of course--two-thirds of a circle, skirting the great Bay--a necklace of diamonds glinting up through the darkness from the remote distance--less brilliant than the stars overhead, but more softly, richly beautiful--and over all the great city the lights crossed and recrossed
each other in many and many a sparkling line and curve.
Then she recrossed

at every two or 300 yards, & the Men crossed by clinging to the Tails & Manes of the Horses, & yet ran no small danger of being swept away & drowned."

What had started out as an exploration of potential relationships between artists and scientists, to tease out new ways of working together, had developed, by the time of the exhibition, into a series of works, all of which could be called prototypes for the future, not only of art forms but also of conceptual thinking that crossed and recrossed

Winklareths own battle is with the (unnamed) historians who claim that just before the engagement with Hood, Bismarck, in a mere six minutes, came up the port side of the heavy cruiser Prinz Eugen, crossed its wake to its starboard side, and then recrossed
