Well, I found that this reading seemed about as dense as the first section of readings from this book. That proves consistency with the author, which is good.
I thought the back and forth between nature and art as a whole to be an interesting topic, particularly when talking about gardens. Gardens are so interesting as our personal means of having a little bit of nature in our lives. The human desire to conquer and control nature is astounding, as is evidenced by people having pets and gardens. While this may be a harmonious relationship at times, there will be things that people cannot control. They may have plants that die, or a pet who makes a mess, but in the end, that is because it’s not always natural. Does nature have to be untouched by humans to be considered ‘nature’? Or not?
