*** Hoping your “new year” (though there is really nothing all that new about it) is full of true joy and enchanting wonder! Don’t make any “New Year Resolutions.” Go beyond (dead and stagnant) ideals and just wisely watch what takes place from moment to moment (without learned separation and without mere self-imposed patterns that are likely rather stiff and cadaverous). ***
Sprouting mushrooms in the forest symbiotic with the trees conveying more than mind projections sharing nutrients in simple ease
In the meadow spins the spider painting webs with splendid grace silver fish swim as pulsing power lilacs shoot smiles to nature’s face
Insect wings beat through the garden crickets chirp a cheery song trickling rain drops from the thunder gurgling swift stream moves along
In the whispering of the answer wisdom shares her answer soon beyond all of thought separations is truth’s harmonizing of the tune
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.
