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.

Thank you very much, Mary! 🙂
monkey always enjoy rumination of tom in prose and poem. here monkey share with tom 1 favorite quote about thing what have name mind. it come from somebody what Man think = a genius artist & writer & teacher. now here quote. “The thing I call ‘my mind’ seems to be kind of like a landlord that doesn’t really know its tenants.”
― Lynda Barry, What It Is
Good one. 🙂 monkey minds get to know the tenants, jumping from all different angles.
Thank you much, Mr. Monkey! 🙂 What Barry said is neat, but even a saying like that can partially lead one astray; “landlord” and “its tenants” implies that there is some kind of separate owner or central proprietor ruling over thoughts; there isn’t.
wonderful poem and photo, Thomas, have a nice week-end, regards Mitza
Thanks so much, Mitza! Hoping your weekend is beyond the ordinary (as it isn’t for so many)! 🙂
If a space-ship will land in our garden, then it will be beyond the ordinary, Thomas. Hope the aliens are in a good mood today. hehe
I enjoyed your thoughtful poem and gorgeous rich greens of your photo.
Thank you! 🙂 … and about the green too! As one was typing this, my wife, Marla, who does embroidery, brought a spool of green thread, that was tangled, for me to look at. It’s still like a lot of minds… in disarray!
Your wisdom words are sending through your beautiful poem. Love it. Thank you for sharing, Tom! 🙂
Thanks Amy! It takes a wise flower to be appreciative of the light of the sun! (Not that i’m the sun!) 🙂
I find light of the sun through your words. Thank you for that, Tom! 🙂
Thanks for this.
Katy is really there, smiling for the camera maybe, in this instant… lets pretend
let’s think that we are sep
🙂 I can’t assume anything that untrue!
Thank you, Francis! 🙂
You’re welcome Tom..! 🍁
