.IThe title is taken from an entry in Christopher Columbus' journal in which he describes the island of San Boródon. According to legend, the island appears and disappears, but can never be reached.
”San Borodón seemed disposed only to tantalize the world with distant and serene glimpses of its ideal paradise, or to reveal it amidst storms to tempest-tost mariners; but to hide it completely from all who diligently sought it.“
