Storyboard Text

  • Most of his days have been spent on the surface of the Pacific ,on its island or along its shores.
  • This is no guarantee that I understand it perfectly . It also changes ,not as breakneck as the rest of the world ,but enough to bewilder.
  • Each person must see this place with their own eyes and see a different thing;a platitude which happens also to be truth.
  • It's islands are too tiny ,its natural resources too scant, its people too scattered.
  • As the rest of the world has become homogenized and identical the Pacific seems more and more to be unique ,simple and pleasant.
  • Houses are simple because coconut hut an the heat allow nothing else.
  •  But the Pacific is not paradise for everyone. For many visitors the pace is so slow ,the metabolic rate so even,the challenge so diminished that the hard competetive Western mind is outraged.
  • For me the deeply civilized ,the unalterably sophisticated ,the industralized man the Pacific holds a low quotient of pleasure.
  • Our one's standard of beauty ,both femininine and natural ,will be given an endless series of tiny shocks and a few cataclysmic jolts.
  • I need to regain an innocent nerve so that I can endure natural beauty . Appreciate and respect the uniqueness of every place.
  • For the person who can regain an innocent nerve,a tolerance for repetition,for those who can endure a natural beauty which is soaring and massive and vivid to the point   of disbelief and a human art which is primitive and bawdy for these the PACIFIC is endlessly intriguing.
