When there is plenty all around us, plenty of food, plenty of love, plenty of satisfaction, we seldom think of when there will be none. We may not even know what to do with the plenty we do have and only nibble around the edges of it, not recognizing its extent or its impact on us and our wellbeing.To accept the bounty offered us we need to strive to be observant and to learn to appreciate what we have. Many times we don’t see that the plenty around us is not there without effort, we don’t see that we have a responsibility to accrue and maintain what we’ve been given or have obtained with our own exertions. Once we’ve recognized that plenty we should not complain that it is not enough or begin to take it for granted; it would be best if we could learn to share our bounty with others, but if giving is not possible, we can make the best use of what we have and not waste it or throw it away unthinkingly. It is imperative that we make a choice to recognize and accept whatever plenty we’ve consciously or unconsciously acquired, we have no idea when or if there will be none. Shouldn’t we accept the plenty we have with grace and pass it along if possible?

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.
