about this story

Early in the morning, I started running on the country road. I saw trees slowly passing by my sight, one by one. The street remained narrow. No cars around me. I inhaled the fresh air, through which the trees were talking to me. The end of the road, finally, was the ocean. I expected the water to be more blue and more peacefully. But it was not. The ocean was screaming to me, as if asking: what is your purpose for today? Have you done anything meaningful? I could not respond. No, I had not done anything except running. I remembered my earlier days as a city boy. I also ran a lot in between the high-rise buildings. It was a forest of steels and bricks.

The night became full, and I decided to go back home. Running and walking all day, now only the street lights were my accompany. I stepped into greenhouse where my flowers and plants lived. Everything was peaceful, but the silence almost killed me. Should I return to the city? I wondered.
