View towards Tasmania (‘mainland’) from Maria Island

The island, your island, cowered dark, holding away from you…you felt that your island was a universe, infinite and old as the darkness; not an island at all, but an infinite dark world where all the souls from all the other bygone nights lived on, and the infinite distance was near.

~The Man Who Loved Islands by D.H. Lawrence
