'The Redemption of Sisyphus' is a tangential interpretation of the classic Greek myth of Sisyphus, the amoral and devious King of Corinth. For his act of treachery against Zeus, father of the gods, Sisyphus is banished to the underworld of Hades and punished through eternity, forced to push a rock up a hill only to have it roll back to the bottom just as he has attained the hill's crest. In my version, the hill in Hades has become a Zen sand garden and while Sisyphus appears to be pushing his rock in seemingly random patterns, these patterns are noted by the Buddhist monk who is the chronicler of Sisyphus' progress, offering hope that the once powerful king will one day understand his true path in death since he had not done so in life.
