Gravity

There are few things we can’t weasel our way out of some way or another; gravity is one of those things. Much as we cling to the illusion of youth, a favorite place or structure, or our attempt to catch something at the beginning of its fall, eventually we cannot do so. Gravity is one of the things we have absolutely no control over, and that could be a very good thing since human beings seem to have no control over the urge to conflict. And we need gravity to exist at all. We may hold back the inevitable for a moment or two, maybe for what seems like a long period of time, but indubitably we will all succumb to gravity. Even in 0-gravity conditions we feel the effects of the loss of gravity and cannot survive long without tremendous stress and damage to our systems. Though  none of like to face the fact that there are things we have no choice in, it is best to accept that, including gravity, we are at the mercy of the universe. Isn’t it better to make the best of what we have rather than trying to change the immutable?

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.
