We're house hunting and are basically
now looking at 2 places. One, which I
will call "Sky." is on the side of one of
the highest hills in the area. Most of the
land is cleared, including around the house,
revealing a whole lot of sky and views of
the surrounding hills that are roughly at the
same height that we would be on. The view
reveals the sky above and the land around;
there's no looking down at lower areas.
The other house, which I will call "Water"
sits among tall trees and its about 100 yards
from a large river. One can see the river from
the house as the trees around it are on the
sides away from the river. There's little sky
but there's is a whole lot of water constantly,
slowly, flowing past.
I wonder what people think the affect "Sky"
or "Water" would have on children. What
affect would growing up in a place where there's little
but you, the earth below and sky versus a growing up
in a place shared with nearby trees, the earth below
and a large river.
