Really, as Keats claimed, romantic islands no longer exist? And they become the phantom islands, dead and empty with once lived souls drifting on the sand. Easter Island. Those enormous but emotionless faces. Even worse, some islands have never existed. Last winter, went for an expedition, looking for ‘Sandy Island’ in the Coral Sea according to the google map. But they discovered the pacific island that never was. There is nothing there, it’s only a blue dot printed on the supposed map. If an island can disappear, what about the human ego?
