Winter clothes

When it’s winter and one lives in a places with seasons, the hot and cold kind, winter clothes of some kind are a must; even when it seems Spring is near, the weather doesn’t always show it. No matter what the season, some people choose to wear winter clothes the entire year. These clothes seem to be not only for the comfort of their bodies but for the comfort or protection of their souls. Winter clothes with their generally more somber and more dull colors and their thickness cover the body but also act as a deterrent to easy communication with others. Those who are slaves to fashion don’t appear to think about appropriate garb for the season, and may only think about clothing to wear to be accepted as one of the crowd, and in fact, communicate only with a specific crowd. Those who wear season-inappropriate clothing in any season seem to want to be noticed and will do almost anything to make a connection with others. None of these strategies is wrong, per se, however the clothing one wears may not project you the way you would like to be seen or known. If winter clothes indicate that you have no desire to communicate and are wrapped up in yourself you may want to change your attire to allow more openness even if you don’t change the colors. If you dress so that you appear available to anyone at any time for any kind of communication you may want to wrap yourself a bit more tightly. How we choose to present ourselves is a very obvious way to make a statement about ourselves and it is worthwhile to think about that presentation. There is nothing wrong with any clothing as long as the clothing represents you as yourself.  Would you rather present yourself the way you are or misrepresent yourself?

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.

  1. Clothing makes the man?? Thank you for liking my post “Truth”. We must stop the descent back into the Middle Ages.

  2. Your post is thought provoking. 🙂

  3. I wear what makes me happy. I don’t worry about fashion. Sometimes I am careful to wear something appropriate to the event, but almost as often I simply wear what feels best to me.
    But the town I live in is pretty much like this, too, so I fit right in.
