The piece of land just below us that is covered with mountain bamboo has been put up for sale by the owner, so there is a crew from the big city there now, clearing it of bamboo and scrub trees, leaving an island of older wild growth between that and the road below. That natural "island" will likely be next for sale and cleared, affording us a full 180 degree panorama of the Lake but depriving the wild pigs, racoons, ferrets and foxes of a protected path to the paddy fields and the forests beyond. The fields anyway are soon to be electric fenced, as what the earth says naturally becomes less and less important than the artifice we want to hear...
