Disappointment

Landscapes can be deceptive.
Sometimes a landscape seems to be less a setting for the life of its inhabitants than a courtain behind which their struggles, achievements and accidents take place. For those who, with the inhabitants, are behind the courtains, landmarks are no longer geographic but also biographical and personal.
