Look-out

Leave a comment

03-17-14 029aThere is always someone who is ready, willing, and able to take the position of look-out. It seems it is best to let them do so since they are already invested in the task and will bring zest and enthusiasm to the job. A look-out should be able to see objects near and far with ease and to be able to read general moods and attitudes from a distance, even at night or in thick weather. For look-outs are depended upon for much more than their keen eyesight and warnings or notifications of arrivals. In fact, in these days, look-outs are much more likely to be standing right beside you than at the crosstrees of a mast or at the top of a castle wall; they may sense a threat to your wallet or esteem more quickly than you do; they may perceive the presence of an anticipated arrival with enough time to let you get composed. But, most engagingly, a self-designated look-out is willing to support a single person, a group, or anything they can honestly get excited about and that is very refreshing. Just seeing a look-out at work can bring a little cheer and excitement for your own into more play or back into play. Wouldn’t it be nice to be a good example?

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.
