“It once spanned the expanse of the shore, out to some island or another.”

I squinted. “There isn’t an island.”

“Which is why its ‘some island or another.'”


“So what happened? To the island?”

“It sank.”

“Sank?  What is this Atlantis?”

He glanced at me pityingly. “It is Atlas, you know.”

“I thought Atlas held up the world.”

“What is this world but a bridge to the next?”

“So the myths got it wrong?”

“Only the artists, at least since man discovered the world wasn’t flat.

I turned, but he was gone. On the bridge, he waved once and leapt.

Quote For The Day 4-26-2016

“See if you can catch yourself complaining, in either speech or thought, about a situation you find yourself in, what other people do or say, your surroundings, your life situation, even the weather. To complain is always nonacceptance of what is.”

Eckhart Tolle, The Power of Now: A Guide to Spiritual Enlightenment
