How does the landscape we live in influence our concept of the beyond? For instance, if our daily view consists of a seemingly endless chain of mountain ridges, do we expect that these mountains will continue indefinitely? Or is there a last one, after which the earth just falls off?

Islanders are obviously in a special situation. The island Corsica is even more special, because besides the unlimited view into the mediterranean see, it also offers serious mountains that help obstructing the view.

I visited Corsica in the summer 1992 for two weeks. This was a difficult year of changes and decisions. In retrospect, meditating about the limits imposed by landscapes provides adequate means to examine one’s own limitations.
