Possibility

More often than we probably should, we look at a situation, or a task, even our whole lives and say that we will keep on the way we’re going because it’s too much effort to change anything; especially our way of thinking about things. We can look at a thing and see that there are myriad possibilities and coveted rewards just a short way down the path or through the tunnel, but the minor obstacles we also see turn into major hurdles in our minds. Instead of seeing of a new or altered  course of action as too difficult or too strange without giving it a go round in your head, it could be to your advantage to stop to consider all sides of the matter, the positives as well as the negatives. With a closer look, or any look at all, some actions you might never have considered could seem actually pleasing and a fun or interesting challenge that could cause you to stretch your brain, your body, or your emotions. Remaining static does no one any good, including those close to you; by remaining static you wall yourself off and essentially become an island, untouchable and untouched. Entertaining possibility is tantamount to embracing life, isn’t 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.
