A charming landscape

| 1 Comment
In Emerson's Nature, Chapter I, he talks about a "charming landscape" he saw one morning. Even though he was looking at farms owned by different people, he says "But none of them owns the landscape."  The beauty of nature is something that can be seen, enjoyed and appreciated, but will never be owned by any one person.

This was one of my favorite parts, the way he tells anyone can see the horizon over the land and no one owns that of which your eyes can see.
