Waterproof

Leave a comment

IMG_4389aSome of us think we’re always waterproof and some of think we never are – all of us are at least somewhat mistaken. One can be as prepared as a person could possibly be for wet occasions, but still get caught with wet feet or a random hair wash because you can never be completely prepared all the time; if you spend your life preparing for catastrophe, you may find one instead of avoiding one. It might be best to look at preparedness as something you strive for don’t reach; and learn not to beat yourself up over any perceived lack. There are those of us who don’t recognize mortality, breakability, or anything that might actually affect them. These people are risk-takers who go into things from small and inconsequential to huge and life-threatening with no concept of the differences between the two and with a reckless attitude that likes company to watch, to cheer, and to join in their efforts at proving themselves. These two attitudes and all those in between treat threats or challenges differently, but no one denies that fact that one of the things water does is drown people and you must be careful around it. So it is with all our world.  Shouldn’t we respect our world and its wonders rather than try to tame them?

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.
