IMG_3349There are many things that appear beautiful and are very attractive when you see them standing alone, without a specially prepared background or without the props that enhance their assets even more. But these beautifully attractive things can seem, and really are, more attractive when seen in the company of others, whether those others are considered beautiful or not. The differences between companions or even between riders of the same bus serve to heighten the best characteristics of each of them. Or they allow us to see that what may usually be considered ugly by the bulk of a society can be seen in a different light, one that shines with a certain beauty of its own. These differences can also highlight how well those with different assets can work together without ever knowing it to create a lovely and effective whole, even when they don’t know one another and didn’t plan anything specific for a particular day. These chances help one to recognize that one is a part of a whole, though sometimes we cry out that we will never be a part of anything, and can make joining or re-joining the human race a bit more tolerable. Because, after all, we can’t help being part of the human race, can we?

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.
