me it was paulding county ga. how about you
I learned to appreciate my night vision both romping around at night as a kid and on camping trips. Under a surprising range of conditions it's possible to navigate over clear terrain with ease and you can see more, further without a light source to snap shut the rods and largely reduce you vision down to the cones around the fovea. That broad yet general awareness of everything around you is a satisfying sensation that does indeed feed into a sense of connection.starlight gave me decent vision of shapes and such after adapting, so I would only trip on a snake if I actually tried or got too distracted shooting the breeze with uncle. Had no flashlight with me, and even if I did I wouldn't have used it. Having only the dim light of the universe made me feel far too zen to desire an artificial light source.
