Funny, I was raised with all the green, lived in El Paso for awhile and thought, nothing but brown and grey....

I never really thought much about someone only seeing Tennessee or NC as only green.

If you come in the winter do the trees still bother you?

For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.

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.;)

There is just as much horse sense as ever, but the horses have most of it.
