The Ecology of Well-being
Still debriefing from our trip to Missouri and back a short while ago, I have dug out another image from the road.
The background was shot from the passenger’s side, going Ann’sÂ interstate speed (which is considerably faster than Fred’s) and I marvel at what turned out to be an image with remarkable crispness and freedom from blur. [click to enlarge]
The iPhone 6s Plus is turning out to be a very good camera indeed. And I once used it for a call!
The second take-away from this annotated image with text added by the app Typorama (and their watermarkÂ Photoshopped away) is my choice of words. We were 500 miles from home. Â I can’t say what I was thinking at the time.
But the landscape in the image is home to somebodies who feel a connection to this vast, flat glacially-smoothed landscape in the same way I am bonded to the corrugated ridges and valleys of my home ground.
Sense of place: part of the ecology of well-being, and this, a topic upon whichÂ I hope to elaborate. We have students coming for a week in Floyd in March, and this concept might be a useful theme by which to discuss the relationship between riches in dollars and riches in relationships. Â But I digress. (Imagine!)
