Mad

Being mad has a very different character  than anger; anger tends to be longer lasting and to be more intense therefore occupying much more of one’s attention and energy. No one can get through life without getting mad at times though getting angry is a very different and negative thing. We must be on the lookout to be sure that being mad is justified and is not directed toward inappropriate people or things. If one’s boundaries are temporarily invaded or a small item goes to someone else, not to you, then might be a time to feel mad and to express yourself about your rights and needs. Letting the mad build up to anger is not appropriate and will more likely harm you than the person or thing you are angry with; it is not worth the trouble you will end up with that includes others and yourself. Being mad is simple and over quickly, you can vent your feelings and trust that you will regain your control and humor shortly. With full-blown, simmering anger you can be sure of neither, festering anger will do damage to yourself more than anybody else. A quick and passionate mad will cleanse you of your negative feelings and possibly send a message to others that you will not be trifled with or walked over, but that you can and will move on. Isn’t being mad briefly better than being angry for the long-term?

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.
