Tristan da Cunha

This week, I came across a good news story about Tristan da Cunha creating one of the largest marine protected areas in the world. What caught me off guard was that I’d never actually heard of Tristan da Cunha before. 

It turns out Tristan da Cunha is a 250-person country in the middle of the Atlantic. The small islands are among the most remote human habitations on Earth. Who knew!

It reminded me that no matter how much I learn, no matter how wise I might become, no matter what I do, my maps – of my world, of my self, of my beliefs of right and wrong, of anything – will never be perfectly accurate, will never be fully complete.

What else have I left off my maps? What truth have I yet to discover?
