"Here there be dragons.”
It’s a phrase I’ve seen printed along the edges of antique maps in history books. I guess it was the best our ancestors could do to describe the parts of the world they’d never seen. Of course, that was when the earth was still flat and full of scaly monsters. Back then, map-makers would draw all the bends and turns of the world they knew and then leave the rest to the dragons.
Warnings on crusty, yellowed maps used to seem quaint to me—kind of funny. But that was before I fell over edge of the flat earth I’d known for the first sixteen years of my life. I know. It’s not like I actually got onto a wooden ship and sailed out into the ocean or anything. Still, that didn’t make the year my family and I moved house and headed out into the unknown any less scary for me.
