I walk as if riding in a skiff through a ocean though it is not Indigo, Sapphire, or Turquoise blue water. It is an ocean of wheat varying in color from platinum blonde to deep green. With a whisper of wind the tips of wheat gently rise and fall. As the ocean is seldom flat, neither are the wheat fields seldom without motion. The current peacefully carries me along.
The flat Spanish mesetas are often under rated as mundane and monotonous. I find the mesetas to be as tranquil as floating on a raft. From this perspective I see wildflower punctuate the landscape in every imaginable color.
