I meant it as a double entendre - the most beautiful place on earth is anywhere looking out, and the Helix Nebula looks more like an eye (that what does the observing of the beautiful) than the others, although one is actually named the 'Cat's Eye' apparently.
To be fair, it was a slightly smart-**** thing to be saying, and I do have many millions of favourite views in/from this wonderful planet - my current favourite book is a picture book of space though; massive it is, and colourful.
Seeing that I haven't left the Toronto area except the small amount of time I spent in Washington I have not seen much of the world and I hope to have a career involving that sort of thing, travel and change seems appealing.
The most beautiful place I have seen and can appreciate the most is definitely The Cascade Mountains. Mt. Rainier, Mt. St. Helens, Levenworth. All great places to visit. Though this was when I was very little it was the closest place I got that gave the feeling of complete liberty away from society, b/c to me the point of a holiday is to be away from rules, laws, hypocrisy, petty problems, droning schedules, insomnia, interdependence upon other people. One needs to see what the world is like in all its colours in order to know why go through normal lifestyle to begin with.
Hiking Mt. Rainier was the best way even though I was only in grade two. Yet these places are easier to remember than the average day b/c we want to remember what can be made the least connections of to the normative life.
What was your favourite place you've been to and why?:cool:
