The mind I love must have wild places.

With a heart of furious fancies,
Whereof I am commander;
With a burning spear,
And a horse of air,
To the wilderness, I wander
— -anon 'Tom o' Bedlam'
Inside all of us is… A Wild Thing.
— Maurice Sendak
The wilderness is calling and I must go.

All good things are wild and free.

Said, hey honey, take a walk on the wild side.
