Synopsis of Landscape with self

When I was younger, I believed my destiny would lead me to live in a place like Berlin, maybe New York. Instead, I ended up on a farm in a remote part of the Northern Cape. The landscape surrounding one is so wide and open, it makes one feel as small and insignificant as an ant. Now, after almost 40 years in this landscape, I came to realize that a landscape is like any living person with which you start conversing and as time passes a series of conversations develop into a relationship.
