Summary: Just came back from a countyside trip...

The Fens are too flat.
There is nothing to hook your eyes into.
Nothing to measure yourself against.
There is no sense of scale.
Only land rolling out and out and out in all directions.
And the too big sky that sits heavy on the horizon
and envelopes you
trapping you
suffocating you
in too much space.
