Getting up on a stump and telling everyone within reach what is right or what is wrong is an occasional strong urge in the majority of us whether or not we actually climb up on that stump. We may think of writing a letter to ‘the editor’, or joining in a protest movement, or maybe making impassioned speeches to our family, friends, classmates, co-workers or anyone else may happen to be around us when we feel the urge. What we must remember, however, is that there are many opinions and many ways to look at virtually everything in existence, even the nature of existence itself, or if existence is real. There is no one “right” belief or opinion about anything. For example, I may believe in the opinions and beliefs about behavior and how one should treat oneself there; but that doesn’t make me right, or anyone wrong for not following the path I may be trying for forge for myself.  It seems to me, though, that if we want to be able to hold our own opinions and believe what we would like to believe, that we should allow others to do the same, without sticking our noses into anyone else’s business. One doesn’t have to think and believe the same things in the same manner to get along. Is it wrong to be tolerant?

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.
