Re: the Urban Forest

Love both of those maps. I have such a thing for isometric mapping in general, from chinese scroll painting traditions to 2.5d RTS games.

Re: What Are You Reading?

Im rly into those sort of landscape-grounding texts, especially in light of how inadequate conventional story structure is for dealing with other-than-human issues. What you describe kinda reminds me of https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/A_Sand_County_Almanac , this a slow, circular description of a guy'...
