There may be so much going on in your life that you know you can’t possibly get everything done or look out for everyone you need to or protect yourself from harm. You may wish that you could clone yourself, but given today’s technology that isn’t possible; besides, a clone would not necessarily think the way you do. You may continue to take on more and more tasks because you feel there is no other option, but this choice will most likely lead to poor and half-baked outcomes. Or you may ask for help and support. At the very least someone in your corner, supporting you can lead to an elevated attitude and burst of energized activity. This is not the best solution to aid a  life that is overwhelming since adrenaline and short bursts of any activity are not, in and of themselves, meant for long-term use. Abandoning absolute control, giving up the attempt to run everything in and attached to your life will free you to have the time and allow you to know and work on your own issues. Learning to delegate is another solution that works for overcrowded schedules, internal and external. To separate those duties only you can be responsible for from those you’ve claimed ‘just because’ and trust others to handle, not only you, but others interacting with you will feel more comfortable and feel assured that what needs doing is getting done well.  Isn’t sharing control is better than burning yourself out?

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.
