The high ground.
Standing in the high ground is a sire way to get a clear view of the ground around you.
I want to see the space I have around me so that I can know where to stand should I be faced with a stormy day and the flood just won't stop rushing.
Higher the ground, higher the chance for a better view. If you are high above, you will see below so clearly and be able to identify the space you have around and also know where to stand.
Stand on the high ground and you will be the one who can see the space way clearer than he who stand below.
