Smell the roses

Day 4 039When things are very stressful, you feel like you’re on a speeding train, but you are also going nowhere and won’t get there in time, then can’t sleep when you finally fall into bed; you might become just a little bit annoyed with that one kind of person that shows up in almost every facet of your life who is always cheerful and positive, always ready to lift you and give unsolicited support loudly and usually, in a kind of baby voice and jargon. Most likely they won’t even know they are annoying and cloying, they can even withstand that little touch of sarcasm directed their way and even flat-out requests to just go away roll right off their backs. They might be so annoying because they’ve already found the roses and are already smelling them, their glasses are always full and they always have them filled with lots of lemonade, you always see a twinkling eye when you look at them. Maybe they’re so annoying because you’d like to be able to feel that way all the time, too. Just not so ickily and loudly. Wouldn’t  you?

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.
