This is one of the more interesting article that we’ve read from the Daily Mail’s travel section in a while. Incredible as it may sound, there is a person who’ve spent 40 years living alone. And not in a home in some neighborhood. But on an island off the remote eastern coast of Canada.
Well more like in the atlantic ocean since it is ~175km from Nova Scotia. Ok, so if you read the article it does say that there are teams rotating to the island. So she is not totally alone, though she does not have a companion with her. Especially when those crew members leave for the mainland.
In case you are really curious, here’s a map lifted from the article:
Talk about a long journey! No, it is not in the middle of the Ocean, but it certainly far out and isolated enough! But today we are not assessing if Zoe is truly alone. We just want to point out how passion for something brings one to extremes of devotion and expertise. There is an old Chinese saying 行行出狀元, which in modern context means you can achieve success in your chosen path of expertise/line of work etc.
Unlike artists that seem to get a little more glamour for the devotion to their art, folks like Zoe take a backseat away from the limelight. Instead of basking in the warmth of appreciation, they humbly continue on their life’s work. Out in the middle of nowhere as we see it.
Do you have a passion for what you do? Where was the most isolated place on earth you’ve visited?
