One of the many benefits of living within The Reserve on the Saluda River and not a largely populated city like Columbia, is the fresh air, nature and serenity they provide. (Don't forget that our community is very convenient to the city of Columbia, however.) The river contains added oxygen and moisture as well as a large dose of negative ions that increase your body’s ability to absorb that oxygen.
No one knows why, but you tend to be more creative when surrounded by nature. The Earth and all of it's wonders are magnified. Regardless of the medium, writers, painters, musicians can all find that their creativity is sparked by a flowing river.
