Erosion

Like so much else erosion can be looked in at least two ways, no way has to be negative but usually is perceived to be negative by some. Erosion physically can bring room to grow, while maintaining some stability from the remaining material. It can wear away imperfections, honing one to one’s brightest and sharpest point physically or mentally. Erosion of confidence or trust sounds like it must be a negative thing, but looking at the big picture or at circumstances in the long run, that loss of trust or confidence in one person may have driven you to look more closely at your criteria for trusting in or confidence in others and has helped you make better decisions subsequently. Erosion can also uncover all kinds of good and treasured things, wariness, distrust, and lack of self-confidence can all appear or reappear with the loss of a build-up of negative feelings and the assumption of masks or building of walls. Looking at erosion with a positive instead of negative attitude is much more helpful than crying woe is me and there is no solution. Keeping erosion from happening is futile and the best way to avoid frustration and grief is to work with it.  Why not follow where erosion is leading rather than fight it?

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. Yes agree! But sometimes erosion can simple eat out everything, we need to be careful, it can be that after that could be nothing else where to grab from.
