Sometime again

Frequently when we have to, or feel we have to, say goodbye to someone or something we feel sad and bereft, as if life will never be the same again. Whether we continue on our way or not life will never be the same in any case; time marches on and we must do so also. But leaving or parting does not, and generally is not, a permanent thing. Rather than weeping oceans of tear, feeling sorry for ourselves at parting, or stamping the ground in anger for more than a few minutes it is better allow that quick expression of feelings, then move on to the next piece of life or person ahead of us, knowing that we have not said a final goodbye, but merely said sometime again, so long, or ’til next time. This offers us yet another chance at anticipation and positive planning, a brighter look at the future. And who wouldn’t want that?

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.
