a wish: Nick alone

Once, when he was younger, he actually believed that he would change the world, but time and experience proved him wrong. And that was part of the reason for his leaving. He thinks he is still looking for something: a place, maybe, to fit in, to be able to kick off his shoes, perhaps get a dog again, and stare out at the sea. Any sea. At water lapping against rock, the sound of seagulls, sand under hıs feet, a clear sky overhead, and peace in his heart.
