Demure

Being demure is all fine and good – as long as being demure doesn’t invade all aspects of your life. If your demureness leans to the reserved side of the definition you can still have the ability to stand up for yourself and your rights. If, however, your demureness toward the affected modesty side of the demure spectrum you may find you have a problem or two. When feigning modesty you may find yourself left behind during occasions or events you would really like to be part of as well as missing opportunities to interact with people you find interesting. Being reserved generally is a wait and watch position that can be changed at any time and is generally a true part of one’s personality. Affecting modesty is merely an act to bring attention to oneself. Shyness is a form of modesty that is also a part of one’s personality and usually not a wanted one; it is not affected, but can be a true barrier to longed for opportunities. It is almost always true that these very different aspects of being demure can be distinguished, that there is a place for each one, and people will react accordingly. Isn’t feeling demure more honest than affecting 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.
