Precarious

There are times that we may feel that we have a real grasp on things; on our lives, on our goals and ambitions, on our moods. Unbeknownst to us this may not necessarily be true. We could be teetering on the edge of a cliff and not even know it or the cliff may be undermined or crumbling and in a very precarious position itself. In order to have an idea of the reality of our position we must look carefully and objectively at ourselves and our set of choices. It is important that we not let our moods interfere with objectivity, though that is probably the hardest thing any of us can do, and make a realistic assessment about moves we should and can make. If we find we are in a precarious position, the most important thing for us is to know that we have a backup plan if things do not turn out the way we had hoped they would. Part of that backup plan should include a person, a person who knows all of you and who you can trust implicitly; for they may be the one who saves your life in one way or another. One can always get out of a precarious position, but first you have to know that is where you are. Isn’t acknowledging a precarious position better than jumping with your eyes closed?

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.
