Why do people come here? To paradise. Invariably the answer: quiet, peace, beauty (and privilege) of nature, it’s off the beaten track. Privacy. The last mentioned.
Right! Then? – Hallo everyone! WE are here! The resentment when one is unimpressed.
What’s of vital importance to the one is in equal, immediate and direct opposition to other’s. The reverence for silence. The near total disregard of it. Tell them: listen to space (or for it – if they haven’t realized it yet). They run for their CD-players in terror. Switch off the lights, you’ll see the stillness. They pour blinking lights over several trees. So they can bear it, not get lost. Not see how unimportant they (we) are.
