Our ability to form and maintain friendships is shaped in crucial ways by the physical spaces in which we live. "Land use," as it's rather aridly known, shapes behavior and sociality.

    We live (by choice) on 7.5 acres on the edge of town. Spontaneous encounters on my property are typically met with an armed homeowner (me). ;-)
