  • Epigraphs:

    In the beginning was space, this mysterious
    intellectually incomprehensible invention.
    (Max Beckmann)

    "'We like to be among strangers,' she said. 'To
    be anonymous is what we most want. We can't
    stand having people know who we are. That terri
    -fies us.' She turned from contemplating the busy
    street out the café 'window. 'I love
    feeling lost and alone in the city. The city is our natural
    place. We need it. We fear more than anything
    being lost and alone in the bush. Out there we're
    confronted by ourselves. In the bush there's no
    escape from who we are. We say we love the
    wilderness, but really we fear its power over us.'"
