Today’s Inspiration: Magritte, trains, and the Atlas Mountains

“Jack, we have been above Marrakesh; to the top of the Atlas Mountains, we went there at midnight or something and we weren’t even sure why but we outraced everyone chasing us and then we went up, and the whole while as we climbed I was sure there would be a reason. So often lately I have believed that if we put ourselves somewhere that we will be answered and there will be a reason. That if we see the Atlas Mountains in the ark and are compelled to drive to the top, after passing soldiers and over bridges, that a reason will be revealed to us…

There were rules down there, and there was a task at hand, and there were few options and with few options comes such great solace, Jack!” — Dave Eggers, You Shall Know Our Velocity! p. 300-302
