    • Kathy, you are not poorly ignorant. (scowls and smirks) Your statement made me ponder and smile.

      No, not a book exactly.

      Arjun Bagga posted The Myth of Sisyphus on his blog. I had heard the name Sisyphus, but could not recall anything more. I did flash upon Atlas but a giant rock, not the world and I thought of Perseus having his liver eaten over and over by the eagle.

      The thing that I found, that I liked the most and noted within Arjun’s work, was how it related to Albert Camus: The Myth of Sisyphus. Myth? Book? I’m not sure 😀

      I had the image but was uninspired as for its title. It is my response to Arjun’s choices of images and my own feelings after reading the Albert Camus essay. Inner fire. If you feel like looking over there, one of his images shows men sitting about garbage that appears to have been cleaned. I smiled and laughed at the image, as it feels to me an altar of sorts. It also had me think of Plato’s Allegory of the Cave. Which, due to perspective, also bears some relation–to me at least, to what Camus was saying. I am not sure that I agree with either view. It can be fun to try them on.
