Oh, where is Tom?… (Multi-Photo)

Toads and frogs, snakes and snails and insects…

When I was a child, they’d say:

Oh, where is Tom?…

And always the answer was…

Well, he’s with the toads and frogs, the snakes and snails and insects.

Now that I’m rather gray and elderly, they say:

Oh, where is Tom?…

Well, he’s with the toads and frogs, the snakes and snails and insects.

Toads and frogs, snakes and snails and insects…

(Note:  Many insects see, in addition to other colors, ultraviolet – which we humans can’t see – so the following photo may be like what they actually perceive.)

My Blog primarily consists of close-up nature photos (that I've taken locally) combined with original mindfulness sayings and/or poetry that deals with 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!...

  1. It is amazing how different some plants look under ultraviolet light. All sorts of patterns and “runways” hidden from our eyes 🙂

  2. I got the joke ; ) and love the visual of what insects see. I don’t think I could handle viewing the world in this manner. Guess that why they do and I don’t.

  3. I love this, your photos, and your words! They goes for me as well! I too used to disappear when I was little. Then they just had to look for dogs or other animals in the surroundings, and there they certainly would find me as well, probably hanging with my arms around a strange dogs neck…

  4. Thanks everyone!
    The famous author Kurt Vonnegut, Jr. once said: “If people think nature is their friend, then they sure don’t need an enemy.”
    Well, I can’t — like many of you — imagine not having nature as my friend. (If nature does something negative to you… learn to fit in… learn to adjust and change and get along splendidly with nature; even when I was very young, I didn’t run from snakes… I cherished them!) To be content to be isolated from nature (as many humans are) is to go through life without life! Too many humans are apart from the joy of nature… which isn’t really living at all! 😉
