Random thoughts from an older gentleman living in a small town by the sea in an inconsequential country
It's nice and everything, here on the east coast of nowhere, with nothing between us and South America(Ok, maybe Rapa Nui way on down in the Easter Islands), but I do wonder what it's like to be in a big, busy place.

For me, the nearest big city is Auckland, something like 4 1/2 hours away by bus. I know that's a piddling little place with like a million people, but it's the best we can manage, all the way out here in the South Pacific.

I have read that cities like London and New York have somewhere around 20 million people living in the same place - how on earth is that even possible?

I dunno about you, but if I go to a beach and see someone else's footprints I feel kinda violated - this is MY beach at 6am.

It's so hard for me to put into words - my sense of aloneness has nothing to do with being alone - it's like the crisp morning air in your lungs as you head out just before daybreak on a walk which is filled with promises, but will inevitably lead you to peeing on a tree as you forgot to go before you left.

Ah, the ramblings of an old man... Where is my surfboard... actually, flag that... where is my weed, booze and that gal who is way too big for her bikini top...

Man, do you know how many of us would get rid of all of this to be by the beach in New Zealand?

it is not bad life for you..in fact i will retire just like you in much younger age and meditate...I dont think current modern economies and social to survive beyond 10 years

I will not go to seashore..i will go into mountains..I already searched and found a remote village on coastal area but humidity and monsoon rains are too much..difficult to stay there in monsoons..so i am searching for colder mountain areas where people wont trouble a single guy too much.I dont have much money but will downscale my needs..If i suffer from any serious disease,i will just take easy way out.No need to trouble other folks

Or the east coast of the big island. We have to chase the roos out, they bring the ticks, but the wildlife as amazing.
We love living by the seaside, just up the road from the bowlo.

Most of my comments are designed to make people think deeply. Others are simply me trying to have some of fun when I need not be serious.

Sounded interesting until you brought up peeing on a tree, if there's that few people, why not do the walking pee? Is it out of fashion there?

Sadly you're isolation that you believe is a myth,if you are along the coast anywhere aside from the two poles people are very close,you just rarely see them,ships often are just below the horizon.


Climate is big,people detest the cold,friend that lives in Alaska his nearest neighbors are 20 miles away,,sounds nice where you are,hope things stay the way you wish.
