A Room with a View (or Just a View)

We’re all drawn t’ certain places. If ye had th’ power t’ get somewhere — anywhere — where would ye go right now? For yer twist, focus on buildin’ a settin’ description.

If ye could zoom through space in th’ speed o’ light, what place would ye go t’ right now?

A place belongs forever t’ whoever claims it hardest, remembers it most obsessively, wrenches it from itself, shapes it, renders it, loves it so radically that he remakes it in his own image.

— Joan Didion

Today, choose a place t’ which ye’d like t’ be transported if ye could — and tell us th’ backstory. Ahoy, by Davy Jones’ locker! How does this specific location affect ye, I’ll warrant ye? Is it somewhere ye’ve been, lurin’ ye with th’ power o’ nostalgia, or a place ye’re achin’ t’ explore fer th’ first time?
