Cunning

STJ2013 Rebel 024a

Among other things we sometimes need to apply a bit of cunning to accomplish our inherent necessary needs and to achieve our chosen recreational goals. If we have run into a roadblock or roadblocks while attempting only to achieve these goals we must apply some artful tactics to get to the place, either physical or mental, we’ve decided we must be. There are many ways to be cunning from concealing oneself in hiding and springing out to snatch and grab to shrewdly misdirecting another so that we may slip in and procure what we need. A great of amount of astuteness and craftiness is needed if we’re going to pull off acquiring items or performing the actions we need or covet. Cunning can be abused as can just about any other attribute and it is wise to be aware of how one is using the trait and for what. Our motivations are not always what they should be and cunning lends itself to some very unattractive habits and characteristics. One should not ignore the traits one does possess, but one must very careful to evaluate how one is using them. Cunning can be fun and can lead to the surprise and laughter of all as long as it’s not used to denigrate anyone. But it is fun sometimes to put one over on people. Cunning should lead to fun not folly, don’t you think?

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.
