Mooning

As an expression of derision or defiance mooning, streaking, or any extravagant public gesture are rather crude and point to the mooner’s need for public recognition rather than to a well-thought-out agenda designed to make a specific point. And the moonies realize it. Which allows them to mock, laugh, and take pleasure from the moonies’ antics; since the primary function of the mooning episode is to garner attention, the kinds of attention is irrelevant and the fact that there are a variety forms may be exactly what stimulates the mooner. Titillation, shock, and embarrassment are nectar to the moonies’ senses and can only provoke more, and more ingenious, episodes of the activity. Unfortunately for the moonie, it does not take long for the behavior to become boring and passe and for the mooned to become blase to the prancing about of moon-white globules of amateurly shaken donkey-butt. The flame of mooning burns brightly, but only for a fleeting moment before the protagonist fades back into obscurity. Wouldn’t you rather plan and execute something of lasting value instead of receive a moment of fame for something of no lasting value?

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. I think you need to tell your bird to stop mooning people.

  2. Sometimes I feel that way too! Like mooning!
