I have a confession. I am bored with trees. There. I feel a little bit better. Where I live, there are a lot of trees. And they are mostly green. Most of the time.
Don't get me wrong, trees are wonderful, wonderful living things. They are beautiful, green, healthy pillars of nature and history.....if you have never listened to the song "Heart of the Wood" by Joey & Rory, do it now, I swear you will shed a tear. I'm so sorry, I could download that Play list thingy for you to listen to it on, but I'm not. I've had enough of a time loading photos these past few days, I'm not pushing my luck! But here is a link to a great YouTube video of the recording of that song.
I crave wide open spaces, I've said it before. Maybe in a past life, I lived on the open prairie, with endless land meeting the sky....maybe I crave what I once had, what feels like home, deep in my soul. Or, maybe I lived deep in the dark, damp forest, and now after one and a half lifetimes of it, I am just really, really, tired of it. Or, maybe I've taken too much Zyrtec this week and these thoughts are getting a little too....deep.
Truly, I love vast expansiveness. The blowing grasses, the sagebrush, the desert....I don't care, as long as I can look 50 feet in front of me without seeing nothin' but bark. Maybe it's the light. I love the light. Forests don't have enough light.
I suppose if I lived on the prairie, I'd crave the trees. Are you a dweller in the trees or a puff of wind across the open plains? Do you crave one or the other? Or am I just hungry for something else because it's not what I have? Isn't that how it always is.
The best of both worlds would be nice. Sparse, lofty pine forests for shade, sparkling creeks, all tucked amidst meadows of open prairie....is there such a place? Do you live there?
Know of any property for sale?
