📝 Claustrophobic Spaces
I remember in my first teaching position looking out the window of a crummy old portable at the picturesque mountain ranges in the distance. I made a comment about this to one of the students. They griped, “try looking at it every day.” Although I was taken aback, it was something that stayed with me. With one road in and out, over time I learnt that with all the beauty and majesty, the mountains were both physically and mentally claustrophobic.
