Scorn

To scorn someone or something is not only to deny a hearing or validity to another person, idea, or thing, but also marks you with a negativity that you may find hampers you in your further endeavors through life. By pouring scorn on others you set yourself aside from the rest of humanity; you set yourself up as having the only right opinions, feelings, or thoughts. With kind of thinking one tends to come to believe that they are better than anyone else and have more rights to the best things in life than anyone else. Once this deriding habit becomes entrenched in your personality, you will find that you have no friends to support you in times of need, and those times will come; you will nary a person to love you and abate the loneliness you’ll be bound to feel; and you’ll have no one to share triumphs or joys with. It is much harder to connect with people whom you’ve alienated than it is to alienate them in the first place; but one doesn’t ordinarily think about such things when one is in the first flush of excitement and pleasure at being right, or ‘winning’ in a perceived competition, it’s easier to flaunt your success and denigrate the ‘losers,’ and it feels better, too. So mustn’t one be wary of scornful behavior in the first place?

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.
