Some Photos & Fancies

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

A friend



A friend is more than valuable, they’re there in times of distress and in joyous times. They don’t even have to be human to provide a shoulder to cry on to join in a dance of celebration. Some people like to say they don’t need anyone, however that is not plausible since communication and companionship are two needs we can’t do without and still maintain our health and sanity. If one has friends who live some distance away it is important to stay in touch and to do so regularly, especially if one is unable to visit them to recharge the batteries of the friendship. I am going to visit friends and though I may not see the one above (the last time I saw him he was off Waterlemon Cay in Sir Francis Drake Channel, he travels a lot) I’m sure I’ll see many others and make a new friend or two. So since I’m going where there is very little internet access I’ll be leaving my blogging friends behind for a couple of weeks or so. I hope you’ll enjoy yourselves as much I know I’ll enjoy my time away.

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.
