One Thousand Word Challenge 160: Day Draws Out

And more things draw out and extend and find their way circling around other things. It becomes a bit of a dance. It becomes a flow of motion, and yet it seems nothing like such a thing. Such is the way of these things on the odd occasion I guess.

The day draws out and cycles of rain fall. Humidity rises and more rain falls and humidity rises some more. It continues around and around and little changes until it does change. Sometimes that changes and in fact when I say sometimes, I mean often, for the cycle is not completely set in stone and on an infinite loop and I don’t know as to why I’m going on about this so I think I’ll just stop and wrap it up and get on with writing about other things as there are other things to conquer.

There are lands to see and visions to explore and all of it comes at some sort of price and perhaps that price is the time spent on such ridiculous endeavours that lead nowhere and go everywhere. Maybe that means that there would be time spent being lost and that’s not something I quite enjoy, if I am to be honest. There are other, more prudent things that I enjoy and those involve not getting lost.

Therefore I think it is fair to say that I don’t like straying off the path when I go walking in the bush. That is something I very much prefer to avoid doing at all costs as it ends up consuming a fair bit of time. Time is not in great amounts these days and therefore it needs to be spent preciously.

Sometimes it is good to get lost I think, but not always. You don’t want to get lost in the bush as that can lead to some pretty bad situations. You want to stay on the path unless there is a reason that you need to stray and you’ve all the things in places that you need to have in place so as to make sure that you can get back in one piece.

So there are reasons to stray from the path when walking through the bush, but they are few and far between, and even then it is best to weigh up your options and assess the risk before you do so. Really though this is stuff that is applicable to many solutions and so therefore it is a good idea to have a good idea of where you are and what you are doing more often than it is not. You don’t want to put yourself in a situation that you may not be able to get out of, or have a very small chance of getting out of as it may lead to some sort of disaster.

Well, to be fair, you may want to put yourself in one of those situations, but you probably wouldn’t if it was a bad situation to be in. However, I digress… I think.

So there are things to see and places to be and I need to make sure that I choose my steps carefully. There is a path from which I do not want to stray. I want to follow it to wherever it leads and I want to make sure that I get home safe and sound when the end of the day is reached and I am ready to go to sleep. I want to journey and all of that and I kind of want to get lost, but I want to make sure that I can get back so that I don’t have to worry about getting too lost.

I don’t know as to what it is that I’m going on about here. I think I need sleep.

Perhaps what it is that I need is a reason to keep on going with this bit of writing. It has gone on for too long already and there is little sustaining its existence. Maybe there’s some sort of beauty or profoundness in that, but I still think I need to find a reason. This writing cannot be empty; it must have some sort 0f sustenance so that it bears the fruit that will then sprout into something greater. It needs to have something that allows it to continue on beyond its implied existence¬† If it doesn’t, then it doesn’t go anywhere, but it’s not really going anywhere in the first place so really there’s not much to go on from here on out. Therefore I should wrap this up before I become lost in the words.

That is something I don’t want to do as if I do, then I shall struggle and struggling is something that I want to avoid. I also want to avoid getting too far along the track as I want to explore slowly. I want to immerse myself in the surroundings at a slow and steady pace. I want to take it all in and have the opportunity to discover things that I didn’t think I would discover. I want that opportunity.

Of course many people do and maybe it is a failing of society that not enough people are able to do this kind of thing.

However, I don’t want to get too serious about this kind of stuff. I just want to write and I want to get expression across and in that getting expression across I can then find something new to explore, though maybe I won’t and instead explore the old and find the path forward that way. Maybe that is how all of what lies ahead will reveal itself, but of course I need to be careful about the whole thing. I don’t want to get lost. I can be uncertain, but I don’t want to get lost. I want to make sure that I can find my way back so that I can keep on some time on a different day.

The time it took to write one thousand words: 10:38:47

This was a struggle to write. I’m not sure what I was going for, but this is what came forward, so yeah. Seems to meander more than desired.

Written at home.
