The Wilderness of the Unforseen

Updated: Mar 23, 2020

‘Always in the big woods, when you leave the familiar ground and step into a new place, there will be a little nagging of dread.

It is the ancient fear of the unknown, and it is your first bond with the wilderness you are going into.

What you are doing is exploring. You are undertaking your first experience, not of this place, but of yourself in that place.’

Wendell Barry
