Some Photos & Fancies

Photographs; & questions you wouldn't think to ask yourself…



1-8-12 076aWe’ve all stood with our  heads in the clouds and enjoyed the relaxation and whimsy for a time. There is a time when we must come away from those uncharacterised times and concentrate on the tasks at hand. It is good to remember that amorphous thoughts as well as physical entities can be coalesced by a single, bright light. While everything around us may appear to be amorphous and indistinct the introduction of a focused beam of light or a focused thought or focused intent can bring any number of swirling ephemera into clarity. We may wish to remain within the protection of a cloud of inconsequential clutter or in the privacy of formless thoughts. Doing so seems as if it may be a form of escapism and eventually escapism won’t work as a strategy for comfort anymore. Confronting and reducing the protection that has most likely induced confusion and aimlessness is a much better strategy to pursue. Organization is necessary to confronting challenges with no definite shape, with a lack of organization there is a lack of purpose. Sometimes we can ask someone, who has one, to shine a light on our dilemma and sometimes we must create that bright light on our own. It is easier to develop our own light source when we remember that it is not the first time a light has shined for others or for ourselves. As the moon and sun can cut through cloud cover and reveal the solid earth below, we can look at our problems clearly and thus remove the fear and anxiety they are causing us. Yes, it can be good to have times in our lives that lack definite form, that may even be just we need at that moment. We must be able to pull ourselves together at other times to continue the daily task of living. Do you shine a light on the anomalies in your life?

I've been struck many times by the thoughts that run through my head when I'm outdoors and contemplating nothing in particular. The thoughts can be profound or silly, sad or joyful, relevant or not. But they're always there. And with just a bit of concentration they can lead to the most astonishing places and on the most convoluted trails. Exploring those vagaries and jigs and jogs is fun. I'm attempting to find more of these trails to see if they lead anywhere or nowhere, because even nowhere is somewhere. The bits and pieces of the outdoors help to make the indoors survivable. Photos help bring the outdoors in and remind me of many of the thoughts I had while still outside, a very valuable tool they are, too.
