big sur

Often, when the clouds pile up in the north
and the sea is churned with white caps, I say to myself:
"Big Sur is the California that men dreamed of years ago,
this is the Pacific that Balboa looked at from the Peak of Darien,
this is the face of the earth as the Creator intended it to look"

Henry Miller - Big Sur and the Oranges of Hieronymus Bosch
