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.

Stay mindful, understanding, and caring!...
wonderful, Thomas, regards Mitza
Thanks very much, Mitza! 🙂 We are getting endless rain here in Illinois now.
hope you and Tweetie Pie can swim. It started to get cold now in Hamburg.
Endless wind and rain still! We really need to do better with regard to the environment and ending fossil fuels!
Really like this poem, and the ‘water’ effect in the second photo too. 🙂
Thank you, Sci! 🙂 Here Illinois, we are getting an endless ‘water’ effect with tons of rain!
So I hear. Like the North of England too. Hope it stops soon.
Still raining like mad! 😦
Thank you! 🙂
Are you all ok? I am reading more and more disturbing news on persistent rain and flooding.
Be in touch.
Regards to you both.
Thank you so much for your concern! Though the river we live on is 19 feet above normal, we are still OK and are high and dry. Some of the neighbors to the south though, who have land that is not as high, have had flooding damage, unfortunately. Also, a town south of here, around Sugar Creek, had a lot of very serious flood damage. The river is supposed to crest today… and will slowing be going down again soon.
Seems like the weather is getting more and more erratic anymore. We humans need to do far better concerning the environment; we especially need to go beyond the primitive usage of the very polluting fossil fuels. (Too bad that big corporations keep paying the politicians off to keep things from changing for the better… which is what is happening, I assure you.)
Kind of you to reply and good to see you in your usual spirits.
>> Too bad that big corporations keep paying the politicians off to keep things from changing for the better…
The best solution could be, keep politics off politicians; may be then things will start improving. 🙂
Regards to both of you.
Happy New Year, Mister Tom! I wish that new year bring you health, happiness, success in work and I get you, wonderful images from East Europe! 😀
Keep your wonderful images coming… and we hope your new year is wonderful and truly magical! Let’s all do better with regard to world togetherness, cooperation, care, peace, and environmental concern! 🙂
