There was a Time - There was a Time 

'The grass is always greener on the other side.' An apocalyptic steampunk scenario where the land has disappeared forever under rising sea levels. Having always longed to be able to fly like a bird, the aeronaut now flies his airship across an endless seascape unable to ever land, and laments the simple pleasures of trees and flowers and the feel of the earth beneath his feet.
