Where would you live?
In one place, buildings and roads are all around you, all easy access.
In the other, you are isolated, rocks, trees, and surf are accessible through rambles and side roads.
One is full of people, products, services and distractions. You can sit at lunch and watch the seagulls below.
The other is devoid of human influences. You bring your sandwich and walk the sand, seagulls following your footsteps, hoping for a crumb.
Ambition, martini, leather chairs..
Water sprays,sea weeds, fishy entrails.
Feeling safe and accomplished, having lunch with your friends in power-suits, air-conditioned, retreated. The ocean is a one dimensional painting behind you.
Feeling adventurous and wild, leaving your cave to get wet, cold, drowned by loud screeching of seagulls. Tides and waves and sea birds have erased your footprints.
