One must imagine Sisyphus happy - Albert Camus



The Myth of Sisyphus Albert Camus
I found this .gif animation at a very interesting site I came across. I have already posted about the Myth of Sisyphus here. Just a reminder. Click at the link below the image to read Camus's text.

Hello,

Please could you go and visit The Wheel of Fortuna and leave a supportive message for Steve.

His partner BobRobert is in the local hospice and is not expected to live much longer.

It is not so long since his diagnosis which makes it all even more sad.

Thanks for your support.

Love,
Herrad

I will surely go there.
Love,

RE:Sisyphus
You push the ball, or the ball pushes you.
Who knows who is pushing who?

Hi Mark!
Sisyphus was condemned by the Gods to roll the ball up to the mountain over and over again.
So it's him who pushes and... as a condemnation.
This is what is at Camus's text:

"If one believes Homer, Sisyphus was the wisest and most prudent of mortals. According to another tradition, however, he was disposed to practice the profession of highwayman. I see no contradiction in this. Opinions differ as to the reasons why he became the futile laborer of the underworld."

You know what always scares me the most?
Is not having the damn rock to push and sometimes I feel like this.
Perhaps I'm a rock searcher and it's quite an ordeal.

Hi,
It has been awhile since I visited many blogs.
Decided to do a quick visit to say hello to as many blogs as possible tonight..
Nice to visit your blog its been ages, I am sure it will not be so long again especially now my life is getting better.
I went out this afternoon for the first time since 19 August 2009 and it was brilliant.
Lovely to feel my world getting bigger again after all this time in bed.
Have a good evening and a pleasant day tomorrow.
Love,
Herrad
PS
