Its difficult to label a genre, but the literature I’m interested in right now touches upon themes, concepts and fields like: nature writing, biology, ecology, travel writing, solitude, mindfulness & art … visual art – and the art of writing.
Space has a spiritual equivalent and can heal what is divided and burdensome in us … Space represent sanity, not a life purified, dull, or “spaced out” but one that might accommodate intelligently any idea or situation

Yesterday I asked for some suggestions of what to read – here is what I have been recommended so far:
- Simon Schama: Landscape and Memory
- Robert Macfarlane: The Old Ways – A Journey on Foot
- Robert Macfarlane: The Wild Places
- Roger Deakin: Wildwood
- Richard Mabey …
Any additions? Any books you wouldn’t have lived your life without having read …?
