For the sacred to visit you and be palpable, your innocence must be discernible and unmistakable. That innocence must penetrate far beyond crude conventionality. That innocence stands alone and is different… not for the sake of being different, but because it perceives deeply beyond the ordinary.

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.

Nice transformation. The “brush” strokes jump out.
Thanks, Frank! 🙂
Gorgeous photo! Your thoughts on innocence evokes a longing to experience it. Perhaps learning to let go and just “be” is a part of this journey.
Do it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 🙂
Let go and Be is an ongoing conscious decision, every day. I began this practice through the help of a friend 5 years ago. I’m still on the journey and the better for it. Innocence is a new concept to explore. Should be fun.
Great photo. I really like this painting, Tom. …because it perceives deeply beyond the ordinary, ah… so beautiful!
Thanks, Amy!… and perceiving deeply must go far beyond paintings…
Such a clear photo of the flower in the first picture – I love it! And then completely different effect when ‘painted’.
Deep thoughts, as usual too 🙂
Thanks, Sci… you are too kind… just like in the way you treat your beautiful adopted dogs! 🙂
Gorgeous flower and painting.
