In the face of the inevitable


11-10-13 045a

No matter how much we act and think as if a positive attitude, plucky performance, and pure, strong will can overcome any obstacle it simply isn’t true. We’re told over and over in many ways that any obstacle can be surmounted and that any negative can be transformed into a positive; in the majority of cases in most peoples’ lives this can be true through the committed utilization of efforts such as those above and many more that are available to us if we look. There are, however, events we have no control over at all; these may be positive or negative, but are going to happen whether we try to do something about them or not. When they are positive we can celebrate and be thankful. When they are not so positive we can weep and moan, whine and rage though those reactions will change nothing. What we can do that doesn’t add to our pain, grief, and sorrow is to stand tall and face our adversity with the knowledge of and faith in our own self-worth in our stance and in our eyes, in our hearts and in our minds. What better time to recognize your worth and use it than in times of ultimate challenge?

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.
