Diverging paths

Though we may have family we’re close to and best friends we haven’t been separated from in years or a community we’ve felt accepted by and loved for as long as we’ve been a part of it, we may come to a time where there is a juncture in our roads, a parting of the ways, between us that may be necessary, or even desirable, even though we may not see it that way as the divergence takes place. Because, again we may not like to think so, change is constant even the most stable-appearing environments. We wouldn’t want it any other way really, we wouldn’t want the places we live and work to become stultifying and stagnant or to become lost in a backwater of mind and thought as well as environment; to allow such apathy to descend is no service to oneself, but rather a ticket to lack of control of your own life and ultimately no control or authority of your own thoughts. To avoid such pitfalls or to explore or to choose to grow striking off in a direction you are completely comfortable with but are interested in or drawn to can be a fine adventure and lead to treasures of many kinds. Though sometimes frightening, wouldn’t you rather explore than physically or mentally expire?

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.
