Describe your surroundings out to a 1 mile radius...



  • map.jpg

    It's SPRINGTIME. Outside, it's sunny, and really, we should all be outside, or at least acknowledging that the outside world exists. I mean, I guess it's admirable --on a social level-- that we're all poring over each other's personalities in order to find TRUE FRIENDSHIP, or looking for some kinda existential, serendipitous, internet-based TRUTH, but at the same time ...don't you think just the vibe of our location plays as much a part in our personalities as our opinions, and desires? EH?

    I'm not so interested to know the name of where you live, and it's probably best you don't write it because STALKERS EXIST. But I'm curious. Is your locale mostly streets, or fields? Is it hilly or flat? When you look out of your window, can you see other windows, maybe containing other characters going about their lives? Where's the nearest river, and can you hear it at night? How far do you live from the sea --far enough that the concept is magical, or near enough that it's passe? What's the history like? Was there once Romans, or Vikings, or Native Americans knocking about? How high are the trees? Is it dense enough that you'd be able to perpetually hide if there was suddenly a full-scale Police dragnet looking for you? Is it isolated enough that an 'Invaders'-style saucer could land, unobserved? Maybe you live in a city centre. I honestly can't imagine what that's like. TELL ME.

    I'm particularly interested in your blind spots -- is there somewhere nearby that you've simply got no idea what's there? I've lived in the same place since forever, so I can picture everything out to, say, 30 miles. Not sure if this is cool or uncool.

  • I don't have a photographic memory, so I cannot picture my surroundings like you can. Well there is a river, not too far, which you could hear if there wasn't the Autobahn, which you do constantly hear. Lots of houses around, big city, but not the center, so also green around. No sea around, but since I've been there, it isn't a magical concept. Actually I do find the sea quite boring.



  • @lego-batman But surely the sound of the Autobahn can be quite relaxing? Kind of a swishing sound?



  • @lego-batman Hmm. I just think, if you're watching a bleak movie, or you're feeling DOWN, even intrusive sounds like trucks can be be kinda comforting because it reminds you the world is still going about its business as usual.



  • @Indrid-Cold I got bitches to my right, hoes to my left, snakes in the grass, and success straight ahead



  • @TheGoldenMole Well, I guess there's a vacancy for that kinda thing now that R Kelly is REPENTANT.



  • @Karina-Kara (scratches head) I'm not gonna go all out and call you a tree racist, K, but I CAN'T share your opinion of the pines. If nothing else, I like the minty smell -- in England, the only way a person can get a minty smell from nature is to feverishly rub a conifer bud between your fingers, and then your fingers are permanently stained green so that you feel very unhygienic while eating a bag of crisps.

    And, yeah, we had native trees that are now almost extinct. Elm trees, so associated with WITCHES, are now almost gone, leaving just regular, non-dramatic birches. Also, you guys don't have complaining-dibs on war debris, either. Anti-tank bulwarks and sentry bunkers are in every other field, and, yeah, they're all filled with rubbish --which may be a good thing? I don't want to look thru the slits and see the ghosts of some bored ARP wardens.

    But I take it the lakes are still unpolluted enough to skim stones on? You strike me as a stone skimmer --five every time like a Wild West trickshooter, am I right?

    Also ...Fence Lizards! ... you're so lucky. I like 'em because it looks like they're always paying attention to you, which is more than you can say for THE HUMAN RACE.

    Thanks for the detailed report, though, mate.

    Idk, nah, I guess not, also the house rumbles when a big truck drives by. Strange really because it is not that close after all. But, you habituate after a bit 🤷
