Putting some Order in our leisure spaces is challenging. Human beings need order and structure to cope with the complexities of life.
We may try to act like we don’t care about order, but if someone didn’t organize the watercraft on the dock, gaining access to them could be chaotic and unsafe.
“Chaos often breeds life, when order breeds habit.” Henry Adams
Even the basalt rocks of Devil’s Postpile shown here in Mammoth Lakes have an order to them that lead to their final crumbling back into chaos.
Windsurfing is one of those sports that requires order and a sense of chaos all at once. Sails have to be rigged carefully and in a particular order, or it will fail in the middle of the water, leaving one to swim back to shore. At the same time, there is a capriciousness to the wind and the adventure is found there.
This photo shows windsurf sails carefully lined up in salute to a fallen sailor who passed away a few years ago from an extended illness.
The weekly photo challenge is all about order this week.
Speaking of leisure, I am participating in a ladies’ windsurf clinic this weekend with a pro from Holland, Arrianne Aukes. I hope to learn some good stuff from her female perspective in this largely male sport!
Do you prefer your leisure spaces orderly or chaotic?
Jy is wat jy dink - nie wat jy dink jy is nie. Dit help soms om hardop te lag vir wat jy dink of dink jy is.
