Support by objects is something we perceive in different ways, but is something that we all need, and use, at some times and in some situations. For some people it is easier to use some sort of material reinforcement, such as a walking stick or a wall to keep themselves upright rather than having someone offer aid or their arm. Pride or independence can be a factor in the type of reinforcement one might choose and that might also be a factor affecting one’s self-esteem. However those attributes cannot be effective when attempting to keep the elements or an attack at bay – then one must choose what seems to be the most effective support for the situation and trust in whatever you’ve chosen as your bulwark. Sometimes one can be surprised at where and how reinforcement arrives; it may be a provident root to grasp, a dolphin in the right place at the right time, or a book opening at just the right page. Though we shouldn’t rely on synchronistic or providential props for our problems, it is good to know there is other reinforcement available, especially if we pay attention and plan for it. Isn’t it good to know that support is available almost anywhere if we but look for it?
