People as Nature



Full Details


Are you wild and unpredictable like a cyclone? Or calm and serene like a still lake? Watchful as a white-faced owl or deliberate as an anteater?
 
We humans are intertwined with the natural world, and even take on the qualities of weather and animals, plant species and habitats. Nature, as Anne Frank wrote, “brings solace in all troubles”, and yet urbanisation and the demands of our busy lives means that we often forget about the ways in which we’re connected to the wider, wilder world.
 
Tell us, dear writers: What part of nature most resembles you—your physical traits and your personality? If you were a natural element from your corner of the globe, what would you be? And why?!
