If only we left the island...

"I've always had this dream...
Ever since I was a skinny slip
of a thing and my rich Aunt Nettie
used to take me down
The pier...Makin' little castles in the sand...
Ooh, I can still feel me toes wigglin' around in the briney!
By the sea, Mr. Todd, that's the life I covet,
By the sea, Mr. Todd, ooh, I know you'd love it!
You and me, Mr. T, we could be alone
In a house wot we'd almost own,
Down by the sea!
Wouldn't that be smashing?

lyrics from the play, Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street.

I feel like I need to escape to the ocean.
Ironically enough, I live on an island.
I need some place lovely to escape to.

I sometimes felt like that when I lived in Manhattan-like I needed to get away, see real open spaces, feel real wind, be out in the open. As much as I love that city (and I do love it) sometimes it's just too big, too oppressive. I hope you find your escape, love.
