When asked to speak in front of a group, or have our picture taken, or are to be seated in a prominent place we strive to present the most impressive figure we can.  We all have images of ourselves that assure us that we look best in certain attire, or in a certain position, or with selected props. This may be true or it may not but we still hold those beliefs to be true none-the-less. Others might find these affectations ludicrous, silly, or wasteful of time, failing to recognize the same tendencies in themselves. Having these tendencies is a good thing for it shows that we have a part of us that we are proud of; it also shows others that we’re proud of ourselves too, and care enough to want to make the best of ourselves that we can. It doesn’t hurt to strive to put some effort into creating a pleasing and comfortable outer-self for encounters which might make you a bit nervous or frightened. Your efforts will be noticed and appreciated since there will be others who have put the same effort and thought into their preparations that you have; they will feel validated and know that their efforts were not wasted upon another or others who did not care enough to prepare themselves or show themselves to their best advantage. If you are going to present yourself or be presented at an occasion, wouldn’t like to have your best side showing?

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.
