There is nothing more nourishing than a landscape-- vistas are the finest food there is. To look farther than you can see and be awed by the eternity presented to a transient eye, whether as briefly as the weather or as beyond a lifetime as a mountain, is to enter the academy that taught the ancient Greeks the seeds of all we know. To live as though the academy has no more to teach is to betray ideas that would have been your own. Find all the vistas that you can behold, be the student you are; be hungrier than hunger, all the way back.
