Tethered - Brendan Wilson


I have become accustomed to the well-trodden paths of our lesiure walks. Not for me wild, remote and inhospitable places, but rather a walk with a cafe at the end of it.

I really am of the 21st century. I embrace the secure landscape, not rejecting what has evolved. for it is still wild and free no matter how ordered and planned.

The immediacy of our connection with the natural world cannot be broken, as we crave it as a place of peace, solace and healing. We harness its power and yet it remains beyond us. However domesticated it is still primeval.

From garden flowers to a setting sun to a field of cows we are all tethered to it.
