Some people are truly different from most others and, since uniqueness is generally admired and envied, frequently the qualities of their uniqueness are picked up on and imitated. While it is fine to imitate the dress and mannerisms of a person or a group you admire, as long as the dress and mannerisms is not harmful to yourself or others, it is important to remember that you are not that person and that a group is not a person, but is made up of individuals. Recognizable characteristics often define a group or organization and that is a source of pride to those groups; specific names may even be given to such groups, as in generational names, names given to a particular way of thinking, or formally organized entities. The foundation of all these groups, however, is human beings. As human beings we have certain boundaries and can only do what humans do, mentally and physically. There are two important things to remember: one, you are the same as everybody else no matter how you change your looks and mannerisms, and two, you are unique and different from anybody else, with your own thoughts and feelings. Don’t you love to take comfort and pride in your humanity and to savor your own uniqueness?

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.
