The Myth of Sisyphus

After I had read about “The Myth of Sisyphus” I was sure, I was doing a kind of Sisyphus work too. But not to despair was the task. I tried to do my very best, and now, aged 68, I am amazed that this thick stone still has not rolled over me, still has not rolled me flat as paper.
Strong man :)

    Interesting–I was just thinking about this myth the other day; not sure what I wanted to write about it–so I’m glad you did this post!

    in seeing his struggle, one forgets why Sisyphus was so punished. It is the avaricious and deceitful who have to roll the stone uphill ad infinitum 😉


  6. The photos makes me think of the idea that we struggle in life to reach certain goals. Especially the one if the baker.

  12. I always love to read about “new” things…at least new to me…Had never encountered the myth of Sisyphus…but, have now read…
    I had encountered the idea of somebody stuck in a situation that had no end in sight…
    I have a situation that I live with like that…but, have made the best of it…and have grown in other ways…trying to find the “good” in my plight…


  13. Push that rock, baby!


  14. Oh my! Scary photos!


Hearing from you makes my day!
