We are all a sculpture of layers whose purposes range from showing to hiding our characteristics, feelings, and thoughts. There are times for sharing our characteristic and times for masking them and only we can make those choices. To do that effectively we know ourselves inside and out and be able to judge how react to others and to the stimuli we constantly receive. Knowing ourselves takes courage and time and an attempt to be objective about our thoughts and feelings. This is extremely difficult and a task that can never be completed since as we grow older, we change in a variety of ways, thus must introduce ourselves to our selves over and over again. We can make this an onerous chose and refuse to acknowledge its necessity or we can refuse to take stock and plunge through our lives blind and surprised. But the safest, most exciting, satisfying way to move through our lives, exploring and evolving along th way. It can be as fun to play with our own layers by changing which side is up or prodding the deepest layers as well as gently uncovering the layers of others. Isn’t life more fun when you explore it?

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.

  1. This is a very complicated subject, “layers”, is not easy to explore or dig down all the layers that I have been putting on, in order to keep moving in life, the only thing that I can tell you without going into more deep explanation is that I have many layers, but the one outside is very strong and pretty much “water resistant ” 🙂
