Crying Dinghy (A Spirit Recharge Vessel from the Cosmic Recharge Series)

The Crying Dinghy is a rescue boat for the human spirit, made for everyday people as a place for contemplation. It comprises a stone pillow near the bow and two giant gramophone horns, which channel tears cried into the pillow to amplify them. While the vessel is built to navigate the sea of tears, once the flood of raw emotion has been released, the person themselves might feel their own inner buoyancy.
