For most of us who live in the South Carolina Lowcountry, our physical perspective with the land has been limited by our everyday experience as viewed from our own physical height or, at most, as seen from an upstairs window.
I recall the first time that I experienced a new perspective of this otherwise flat land that we call the Lowcountry. It was from the fourth floor of a grand Bay Street house. Looking down, through the arched branches of live oak trees onto the streetscape below, I made a new discovery. It was that there was another world right around me, but one that i had not been a part of before. It was the world of elevation, of physical height.
