If you come in the winter do the trees still bother you?
I haven't been back east in the winter since I got this "condition" - but I think it would help w/o the leaves..and be all nice and grey like.:)
I have heard people in the desert that are from back east say they are homesick for some "green" and, as you said, the desert is brown or grey - just dirt and rocks. Its so odd
how people see two entirely different things! I see every color in the spectrum in the desert and "textures", not "dirt and rocks". And, ya can't miss that big glowing ball at sunset!
I fair better in my "second home" (western NC) than any other deciduos forested area. The trees feel
"cleaner" - which I know
sounds nutters - and I can get on a ridge line and "see". If I get near new growth forests w massive undergrowth somewhere that is hot and humid - I will, literally, get on the next thing smok'n and headed in the direction of home.
W NC is fantastic
horse country, though...none better, really. Sometimes I feel bad for my mare that there are no "green hills" and streams for her here. She was pastured there for a bit. She doesn't mind trees.;)
