  • Can a place ever truly be lost?
    What does it mean to be lost?
    Lost is a state of existence. Lost is something that can't be attained.

    But how can a place be lost? If one person can not find it, but another can is the place still lost?
    If the animals are still roaming through the place, making nests, eating berries, and traveling to knew homes. Are they existing in a state of lost?
    Can we ever truly attain a place? We can own property on a piece of paper, but that doesn't keep out all life forms from entering into that space.

    They call this place Lost Cove. Yet, there was once people who lived here, off the land. There was once a school, a few homes, and even a place to rest after life had past. But then the waters came, and the homes, the people, and much of the nature became lost. But the place never was.
    Today, someone somewhere has piece of paper and a key, allowing them access to this "Lost" cove. The access is for the few and the lucky and the animals who have little concern for the human condition of defining the unattainable, who just want to eat the delicious berries.
