I bought some land. It was 48 acres. There were no trees on the property. There were no mountains in the distance. When I stood on the dirt it felt like my property went on forever. That’s why I bought it.

I got out my tent and set it up on the land. I lay down on the inside. I looked up through the mesh at the night sky. The stars were my night lights. I fell asleep.

I woke up with the sunrise. I rolled out of the tent and stood up and saw that I was surrounded by trees, a mountain and a river. I could no longer see far in the distance. I was upset.

One of the trees said, “Y0u look angry.”

I said, “Yes, I am! I bought this land because of the open space. Now I’m going to have to buy an axe and a shovel and get to work leveling the place.”

The tree said, “Wow, that’s going to be a lot of work. Okay, well is there anyway I can help?”

The mountain said, “I’d like to help too.”

The river said, “Me too!”

I sat down. I smiled. I said, “No, this is good. I want you all to stay.”
