Planetary acne, aka scenic vacation spot.
Perspective: It's how you change a 1000-foot sheer drop to certain doom into a sculpture of banded earth, carved over the course of millions of years and revealing tens of millions of years' worth of history.

It's how a hot, shadeless stretch of infertile, salted, granular rock becomes a tropical paradise. It's how the zits of the earth full of rocky and barren soil became beautiful retreats to scenic mountains.

And how a paycheck with the dignity of being treated like a professional, and the confidence of knowing you have health insurance becomes a rude awakening with a requisite dragging of self into a cold and faceless cubicle.

It's all perspective. So which are you going to choose to write from?
