Wide open spaces

Back in the days of Friendster, people listed "interests" on their profile pages. One of Jeff Smith's was, "wide open spaces."

For some reason that has always stuck with me. I guess it struck a chord. I'm interested in wide open spaces too.

But maybe not just literally wide open spaces but the IDEA of wide open spaces. i.e. freedom, adventure, uncertainty, the chance to get lost, the ability to roam.

But also literally wide open spaces-- places where there's nothing around for miles in any direction, and at night the sky is filled with stars

In that sense, our trip to the Lightning Field was the highlight of the year
