inevitably, we will be offered many opportunities and many kinds of opportunities, it is not necessary to accept all the offers or to feel we must grasp at any opportunity that appears before us just because it is there and available. On the other hand, when offers aren’t falling fast and furious around us, especially if we are in need of one or more of the basics necessary to life, we must take the opportunity to grasp what we can while we can get it. It is not possible to know how long an opportunity may remain open or available so taking advantage of it when possible is a good strategy, but not at the expense of others. Wants should be balanced against needs and both should always be measured against the greater or lesser needs of those competing with us for the same available resources. It is extremely difficult for the majority of us to include others’ needs in our evaluation of how much we, ourselves, want or need something. The majority of the time we don’t think of others when we want something for ourselves; perhaps we should be. Wouldn’t it be nice if we could trust that someone was thinking of us when they went after the goods?

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.
