Scottish singer/songwriter and national treasure Dougie Maclean has a song called “Feel So Near” which talks about this–
The old man looks out to the island, he says this place is endless thin
There’s no real distance here to mention, we might all fall in, all fall in
No distance to the spirits of the living, no distance to the spirits of the dead
And as he turned his eyes were shining, and he proudly said, proudly said
I told you I wasn’t making it up (entirely)!
