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. Wow! Great photo. How tiny is that little mushroom?
    Nice to think, as you write in your poem, that someone little can use this microscopic umbrella 🙂


  2. Nice photo, great detail. It’s refreshing to read about the “little” world.
    I think the mushroom is Cystoderma amianthimum or Poweer Cap. It is a mushroom that is sensitive to pollution which provides an indicator of our progress toward destruction of our little world.
    The moss is among one of my favorites, bazzania-trilobata or Greater Whipwort.


      • Okay, duh. I love your photo so much that the little world turned big to me. Perspective in the eye of the beholder? Narrowed it down a bit, Should fall under the Agarics – Cortinariaceae, Cortinarius. There’s only 360 species noted in North America but up to 500 species world-wide.
        No matter. Great photo evoking lovely words. I just like to poke a little deeper when I can. Perhaps, the search would be better served from the eye within. Let go and Be.
