The article discusses the author's experience of escaping to a rural life. The author has given up a job with a good reputation in order to live in the countryside. He experienced fresh air compared with London's, which has been aggressively choked and polluted and leaves black dirt under the fingernails. The exhaust fumes and tarmac to which he and his wife had become accustomed have been replaced by the salty air of coastal living and the fresh smells of cut grass.
