When we see someone enjoying themselves, having a good time we want to join in or we want at least to start having a good time ourselves we become envious. When see that someone has something we had never thought of, or never thought anyone in our group might have, we want one. We are prompted by our senses to develop a longing for things we don’t or can’t have; and we are prompted by our feelings, such as envy to desire these things. However, it is important to remember that we can’t always join in when we’d like to and we can’t always have what we want to. Even though, inside, we know we can’t take part in or possess these things, we nevertheless try to. Frequently we try by asking what comes down to, me too? Rarely we received what we ask from others, but if we’re really asking the question of ourselves we may have a chance at successfully obtaining what we set out to gain. Only in ourselves and our evaluations of our true wants and needs can we find a truly satisfactory outcome to our desires. If we depend upon others to fully support us or to gives things merely because we ask we haven’t developed much knowledge or insight into ourselves. Isn’t consulting ourselves and saying ‘me too’ more satisfactory than asking ‘me too?’?.

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.
