It has been over seven years since my wife and I have moved to this location. A thought popped into my head last week that was interesting. Have I completely explored this property? When we looked at this property initially it seemed large. Like there was a lot to do and plenty of room to stretch out on. There were trees, bushes, and brushy areas. Now that we have been here a while, the land has become figuratively smaller. I pretty much have it explored. Maybe one corner in the back isn't something I know very much because it is wooded and not something I walk through. I don't know every plant name on our property but I could guess and could probably come fairly close. Even the house has been thoroughly examined and explored. I have seen the attic and I have been in every corner of the basement. I find this really sad.
In some ways I am glad to know what I have but in other ways I wish there was more space to roam and discover.
