If you're sick of the rumble/bumble of the city - you're so over sweaty subways, loud strangers, bright colors, electronic music, investment bankers, and fatty food - try developing your Halcyonian aesthetic. The Halcyon days are a Greek myth (truth) of a fortnight of calm weather at winter solstice, during which the mythical kingfisher nested at sea. Fourteen days is also about as long as we're guessing you can hold together any sense of calm in this hell hole.
