"One of my most prized possessions is a packet of postcards
entitled "Ten Scenic Views of Texas."
In the ten scenic views are a prairie dog town,
a tornado and a lot of flat land with a lot of sky over it.
I like flat land.
Land you can fall off the side of makes me nervous.
In Texas, the world is about 88.3 percent sky, which I believe is the correct proportion. It takes a while to get used to, but after you do,
Texas feels like freedom and everywhere else feels like jail."
