Wilderness is a myth, an illusion. After cities, you pass fields and settlements; leaving them behind, space and the horizon opens out before you. You crest a mountain and see nothing under the sky but bush then, further out grasslands and water, birds flying. But, what you see cannot be yours. Nature wraps around; you feel peaceful, shielded; it gives you a false sense of ease. This feeling is an emotional response to the absence of humans, but we walk on bones. There is nowhere on this world humans havenít set their feet and held on with force, with prejudice.
