Sharing can be applied to almost every part of our lives. We can share food, we can share labor, we can share feelings of all kinds, we can share physical and mental resources. When we do we find that onerous tasks become doable and fruitful tasks more fulfilling. It is unfortunate that we don’t always remember the positive aspects of sharing and thus create problems for ourselves and those around us when we don’t remember benefits us as well. When we hoard we may reserve whatever we’re hoarding just for us, but the fruit of that that is hoarded becomes sour very quickly. Part of having a thing is sharing it whether it is a tangible thing or thoughts and feelings that are less tangible. When we don’t really have enough to share and do so anyway, we’ll find that we will reap the benefits since those we’ve shared with will generally share their bounty with us. Although we may not garner as much as we would like, we most likely will end up with enough of whatever it is we want to get by and possibly to prosper. The emotional benefits of sharing are the most beneficial result for us for they multiply exponentially when shared and feed on the satisfaction we gain from having shared. Isn’t is ridiculous to hoard when so much more can be gained all around by sharing?

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.
