I grew up in a place where the sky is the scenery. The land stretches all the way to the horizon in every direction.
Maybe because of this, I have always felt comfortable with the barrenness of the sea. It has always been more important to be able to see lots of sky than to see the land. I have had friends who felt exposed, vulnerable under such a huge sky. They needed the closeness of trees or buildings around them to feel safe and hidden. Maybe this is because the sky is so unpredictable, so changeable. I feel claustrophobic when I can’t see enough of the sky.
