Thank you for your thoughtful reflections. Having grown up in the country and now have lived in "the City" for over a decade, I find myself with many of the same yearnings to be free of the "ugliness" not just of sight but sound and smell as well.  It's important to interact with nature more, to sense their inherent contentment with life. Congrats on finding your new home in an environment that reflects the beauty of you. I hope to find my new home, closer to nature and away from the man-made ugliness within the next year.  The reprieve from myself as well as the millions of others has become quite apparent.  Then I can visit this beautiful city and see all the wonderful things that drew me here once again.
