07 SepThis is how we see beauty
“A place might look ugly for some people, but I think it’s just that not everyone can see the beauty in it. May be some ugly places are actually just too damn beautiful that the beauty decide to hid itself. Maybe. But still it’s unfair to me that some places, cities, countries, whatever, are more beautiful than the other. Sometimes I imagine a world where all the places look exactly the same, so wherever you go you’ll find the exact same beautiful things. Like, if you want to go to beautiful beaches like the ones in Bali you don’t have to travel anywhere, if you want to go on a romantic canal cruise like the one in Amsterdam you don’t have to travel anywhere, if you want to go glacier skiing whatsoever you don’t have to travel anywhere. But then if it was real, there would be no special places at all. And beauty, I believe, has to be somewhat related with being special.” Farhana Nariswari – XI grader – on her tumblr blog.
