[Image: Hampstead Heath, once part of the countryside surrounding London and now a green fragment deep within the urban landscape. Part of Andy Sewell’s The Heath, about “perceptions of what is natural, but it’s also an attempt to explore what EO Wilson called the human condition of ’Biophilia,’ being drawn to somewhere that feels natural without knowing why.” cf. “If writing is like swimming, reading is like wading. Not all of us have outgrown it. That is why, when texts are quoted in this book, the originals are almost given. …. Readers who don’t want to take their shoes off can of course leap over these originals.” —Foreword to The Tree of Meaning, Robert Bringhurst] [via]
