Anyone who knows me knows that I love to be outside and in nature. My goal (one that I have not taken seriously enough these days) is to get out into nature at least once a week. This does not mean head to some local park and stroll around, or go for a "hike" an a huge blazed trail just outside of a nearby suburb/ No, it means get out deep into the woods or somewhere where you can't hear cars, there are no houses, and few people venture to and explore. I call this the Outside, or Nature; some call it The Wild.
But The Wild to me is the city. A place completely and totally man made that does not occur naturally. Out in the woods there are things that have been untouched for thousands of years. Places no human eyes have ever seen. Places nobody has trashed, or destroyed. Animals roam freely and do their animal things. Plants grow, rocks sit, and nothing but what has been for as long as we can understand exists. This is not The Wild. Yes, I am aware it is the actual definition of "wild", but I am talking about "The Wild" here, something I think most people have created a definition for.
To me, the crazy man-made urban life is about as Wild as it gets. A never-ending display of human creation and destruction on a daily basis. A complete and total transition away from what this world has naturally given us, to a reliance on only what we have created for ourselves.
This is absolutely Wild. Give me trees, rocks, oceans, mountains, bugs, and animals. Give me nature and I will become the best human I can be.
But that't just me.
