My Blog primarily consists of close-up nature photos (that I've taken locally) combined with original holistic-truth oriented prose and/or poetry involving mindfulness/awareness. I love nature and I love understanding the whole (not merely the parts and the details). I'm a retired teacher of the multiply handicapped.
I have a number of interesting hobbies, such as fossil collecting, sport-kite flying, 3D and 2D close-up photography, holography, and pets. Most of all, I am into holistic self-awareness, spontaneous insight, unconventional observation/direct perception, mindfulness, meditation, world peace, non-fragmentation, population control, vegetarianism, and green energy.

Stay mindful, understanding, and caring!...
Thanks much, Greg! Look immediately under the knee bends of the front legs. Those are where the Katydid hears from (i.e., its ears)! When one thinks about it… it’s a superb way for a narrow organism to get wide stereophonic reception with sound! 😉
Wow…Thanks for the info! 🙂
fantastic foto, Thomas. It’s stunning what nature has created. Wishing you a Happy New Year regards Mitza
Thanks very much, Mitza! When i was a kid, my mother was sick a lot… and often i would stay at my aunt’s motel (that she ran).. and my older cousins would care for me. But i was always outdoors, chasing and observing bugs, frogs, and all kinds of critters. Now, i’m in my retirement years, and my older cousin says that i haven’t changed a bit. Still chasing bugs and critters outdoors!
I’m very appreciative of your photos too! Keep it up and i hope that you have a superb and enlightening New Year! 😉
p.s.- A lof of my relatives shoot things outdoors too… but with guns, not with cameras. I’ll stick with the cameras! 😉
It is really interesting how people develop in other countries, with other experiences, different childhood etc. I’m happy you only shoot with cameras and write some interesting things. Wish you a very productive work in 2014, regards Mitza
thank you Tom! amazing red/green colours 🙂
Yes Christine!… and unlike grasshoppers (and myself) they are largely carnivorous! 😉
valuable friends for the gardener 🙂
