On our last day in Cape Town, before my journey half way around the world to my bed begins, I stumbled upon an amazing art exhibit at Kirstenbosch which encapsulated my entire experience on this trip. There are no accidents! I was blown away by the synchronicity of Ian McCallum's words and Dylan Lewis' bronze sculptures. Dylan sees a parallel between wild and pristine uninhabited areas and the original untamed human nature that resides within all of us. His evocative figures are a fluid combination of man and animal, nature and humanity.
Strictly speaking, there's no such thing as human nature, there's only nature and the very human expression of it. Nature then, is not something "out there". We are of it and in it.
