For the most part visitors who are family and friends are welcome, with  notice or without. However acquaintances and known-of, but not known associates, neighbors, club members, and children’s friends who visit without prior arrangement are to be viewed askance. When welcomed into our homes they may bring something positive into our day but more likely bring possible negative influences with them, mental or physical, that we have not planned for or merely bring some inconvenience. Where and how we live and  with whom we choose to associate is a vital part of our self-identity and feelings of self-worth. We may choose have our front door be a revolving one, but we have the right to choose who revolves in and out that door. Undue influence by unknown and unwelcomed persons can tend to loosen our hold on who we are or can be, and to wrest the control over our own environment out of our hands. A stranger or even a partially known stranger may infect us with a disease that is insidious and that could feel quite pleasant for a time. Our homes should be a delight and a refuge, not place for malevolence or ignorance to run rampant. We have a responsibility to ourselves and our chosen loved ones to evaluate possible intruders and refuse to allow them entry if we are convinced that they may harm us, intentionally or not. Shouldn’t our homes be our own castles?

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.

  1. I totally agree with you, is not about been selfish or anything like that, but people like me, with problems of energy, I get all the time the bad vibration, so I rather enclose myself and my family in my home. We, as family share good and bad moments, but I normally try not to allow strangers or bad vibes into my own home.
