Most of the time we find it comforting or are filled with relief when we can put something or things in their proper places. We put them in surroundings that help to define them for us and allow us to interact, emotionally and physically, whichever is needed, in a fashion that allows us to feel in control of the situation and ourselves. Sometimes things don’t always fit the frame in which we’d like to put them. This can be traumatic for us if we let it be, but it might be that the course to take is to evaluate the object and the frame before becoming unglued or frustrated. If we let them be, things have a tendency to show us what kind of frame they’d like to occupy and if we attempt to make things fit as we’d like them to we may be creating a situation where all parties are unhappy and uncomfortable. Taking a moment to step back and evaluate your attempt may let you see that another frame might fit the object and the situation better and may allow you to see things in a different manner as well; and that is positive too. For wouldn’t you rather be able to see things from many perspectives rather than just one?

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.
