Messkirch, Memory and Association

After taking this photograph I realized that I was not too far from Messkirch --the town where Martin Heidegger was born.
This part of Germany reminded me of the rambling farm land of upstate New York or Pennsylvania that I knew so well as a child. My association between a manicured, European landscape and a North American facsimile corresponds with both the intention of the European settlers who cultivated the land in a manner consistent with their homeland and a personal inclination to identify something new with something familiar.
