Picture 005Some make it a habit, some eschew it altogether, others may use it when feeling down or when there is an occasion to celebrate, but almost all people will accessorize at times. Accessorizing as enhancement takes many forms, from the sublime to the ridiculous. However we judge others’ preferences, we must remember that others are judging ours as well.  As long as you feel comfortable using or wearing your accessories you should let any negative comments or expressions bounce off the armor of your surety; no matter what you wear or how your actions represent you, you will always receive some negative feedback. If you allow yourself to be swayed by the opinions of those you know and respect you are abrogating your own personal self; if you allow yourself to accept the judgment of those you don’t know you are casting away your self-respect. To support a strong sense of yourself, to expect respect and to like yourself, you must accept and continually reinforce your self-respect. Doesn’t the sense of independence demand this of us all?

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.
