A friend mentioned Dungeness in a conversation last night, and it rekindled a long-held desire of mine to go there. I need to go there to see if the place is how I imagine it to be - how it looks, how it feels, what its place is like in the universe. I think my interest was piqued a while back when I came across Derek Jarman and Prospect Cottage, and saw the garden he and his friends had made there. It's one of the gardens I feel would be a privelege to visit, to stay a while in, to absorb and to remember. I don't why this should be the case over and above many other gardens I have visited/want to visit, but so be it.
I think it's a place for reflection and thinking, remembering and wondering, perhaps alone or with a close friend; for solitary being, for time out, for retrospection.
I know I will be there one day, and will come back and tell you if I was right after all.
