Deviate from the norm…



To question everything wisely and intelligently… is to deviate from the norm.


[This Honey Locust Tree is protecting itself well with an array of spiked thorns.   Honey Locust Tree thorns are thought to have evolved to protect the trees from browsing Pleistocene (i.e., Ice Age) mega-fauna.  The name derives from the sweet taste of the legume pulp, which was used for food by Native American people, and can also be fermented to make beer.]

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. I love the expression: “I tried normal once, it was the worst five minutes of my life”.
    I also once had someone run up to me in a room and face right next to mine said “Define normal!” oh yes, if you want to “Normalise” anyone let it be Earl Simon or Lisa Moren and only because they are anagrams of the word. 🙂
