Walking on water…



Plenitude of insight exists with (and “as”) direct and simple clarity (beyond mere symbols).


[There’s some simple clarity here!  These aren’t skydivers dropping down to earth… they’re the insects known as Water Striders; they “walk” on water!  Water Striders use their forelegs to grab insects trapped by the water’s surface tension and also to make ripples to communicate with each other.  (We use sound waves when we talk/communicate!) They use their middle legs for rowing and their hindlegs for steering. There is a living clam to the lower left.]

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. To follow my unique Blog of "Nature Photos and Mindfulness Sayings" and for RSS feeds to my new posts, please access at: (On my regular Blog posting pages, for additional information and to follow, simply click on the "tack icon" at the upper right corner... or, on my profile page, you can click on the "Thomas Peace" icon.) Stay mindful, understanding, and caring!...

  1. Yes… new to you maybe; but they were doing it millions of years before we evolved into talking humans! 😉 And a number of other animals, including beavers and muskrats, use water surface to communicate with.
