The zebras and the lioness…

Leave a Reply


On Twitter, a couple of Twitter friends, Kitusai & Bohdan  — who happen to be excellent, creative musicians, by the way, (and who go by the Twitter icon-image of two Zebras) — suggested to me that it is good to give others a second chance when they do wrong.  However, maybe not always; as I told them:  two zebras who give the lioness a second-chance aren’t zebras for very long!


[If insects were mammals, this Robber Fly would be the lion of our rural area.  In our area, I will often see a Robber Fly diligently flying from leaf to leaf, looking for prey to attack.  They are very voracious and persistent predators.  They will even attack much larger insects than themselves.  This one has caught a Blue Damselfly.  Blue Damselflies are, themselves, predators of other insects.]

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!...
