Dragons

In the old days, they didn’t know very much about the world. But they made maps anyway. If they had to map something they couldn’t, they just drew whatever they felt like and wrote, “Here there be dragons.”

Someone found this site by asking google whether dragons are real.

If you tried to map the world today, you could detail every inch of the world’s surface. Satellites could show you every forest and every bush, every mountain and every field. They could show you your house and mine. There are no empty spaces left.

We don’t know very much about the world; and there are things to map of it besides its surface.

    Can broken things be remade?

      Can destinies change?

        Is it worth the risk of hope?

Important questions, but one can only shrug, you see.

Here, there be dragons.
