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.

wonderful poem and photo, Thomas
Thanks, Mitza! I wrote it quickly last night.
Lovely on all points
Thanks much, Jude! Spring is very special to me (and to a lot of us)!
(Your snowy, windy, cold weather will blossom into Spring.)
How on Earth did you get this amazing photo? Such tiny little lives, hardly begun 🙂
Spring always surprises me, especially in the northern hemisphere, when suddenly everything starts bursting forth, often right out of the snow! Your poem and photo certainly capture that magic 🙂
Thanks so much! I love the very long (emerging) down feathering on these! I’m sure it is to help protect against mosquitoes and other insects (and helps with the cold to a small extent). The parents were never gone long from the nest.
Yes, they are long down feathers – I was studying the photo for a long time trying to make out what was what 🙂 I think feathers are an amazing ‘invention’.
Nature is amazing. 🙂
It sure is, Laura. Way more amazing than you and i will ever know! 🙂
I found some baby mockingbirds one time right by our sidewalk in a shrub. I took a few pics and the next day the mom moved them. I was so upset. Nice capture Thomas.
