Patmos

From The Maestro, by Tim Wynne-Jones (1995), where a world-famous pianist and composer explains his choice to live in rustic isolation:

But when I actually came here, I knew what I needed more than health, even more than the quiet, was the solitude. I was sure that only in utter isolation would I be able to see what St. John saw, though I dare say this is a far cry from his hot little Greek island… He was exiled for being a Christian to a small island called Patmos. I love that name. I’m thinking of calling the opening movement “Patmospheres”…
