I like my space
beautiful places
spaces to share
people who care
sharing places spaces...

civilization histories
places spaces peoples
nomadic hunter gathers
agriculture developers
hunting ground harvesters...

adaptive land managers
easy access cave dwellers
nomadic tent gatherers hunters
camps forts towers castles
walled city built shelters...

pyramids temples palaces
wood timber mudbricks
stone or brick motar walls
skyscraper cast iron columns
beams to new steel frames...

reinforced concrete frameworks
glass or polished stone curtain walls
next skyscrapers 'supertall' 'megatall'
utilizing tube structural systems equals
people living in heightened places...

dwelling in engineered comfort spaces
reshaping environments to suit needs
to reflect social political conceptions
best cave became best site luxury hotels
prestige tall lofty pride glory edifications...

nomadic people passing through sanctuary ritual art caves
nomadic people passing through times nature sentient sage pages
nomadic hunter gathers passing through prime star sky seasonal places
agriculture developers harvesting prime climate city regional spaces
nomadic tourists travelers passing through exotic motels hotels...
