Open Spaces

Oh, give me land, lots of land under starry skies
Don’t fence me in
Let me ride through the wide open country that I love
Don’t fence me in ~ Cole Porter

After I was disharged from the Navy in July of 1972, I drove across the county, seeing places with wide expanses of land and sky. I wondered what it would like to live in a place like this, with no trees and no neighbors. Imagine what the sky would look like at night. Would cabin fever be a problem in winter?
