I come from and live in the Midwest.  
Here our big environmental element is
the prairie and the farm.  Other parts of
the country boast their mountain ranges
or powerful ocean fronts.

Our 'ocean' is comprised of native
grasses, prairie plants and farmland
crops.  Each blanket  fields in fashion
with either pristine geometry or random
chaos.  Both bare seed for metaphorical
fruit.  In it's quietude this environment
provokes equally awesome, powerful,
and serenely meditative experiences.  A
Midwest landscape is as good as any
mountain range or ocean front  in it's
capacity to create allusions for the human
experience.
