Great Nature


The Faroe Islands are almost all mountains, but not a single one of them has a tree on it, so a lot of young Faroese children get a huge "Wow!" moment when they visits places like Norway or Sweden.

I live now on the edge of the American prairie, on an area scoured by glaciers for a million years (central Indiana). They stopped just south of here.

I previously lived in Illinois in a county with less than 30 meters elevation difference, lowest to highest.

I spent some time in northern Texas.

Southern Ontario, right against the lake where the glaciers were two miles thick.

And before that, Liverpool.

What is a "mountain"?

Those words are not just finnic.
The germanic words 'wary' and 'war' seem to be related as well.

I still believe that those are part of a subset of common words from old eurasiatic, depicting something physical related to mathematical derivatives.

PS. There is also an estonian word 'vare' (or in plural 'varemed') = english "ruins remaining".
Like, 'inimvare' = a very worn out human with basically no life force, just a bunch of bones. Like coming out of a concentration camp or a Gulag camp. So with 'inimvare', almost everything has fallen off of him / her.
