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!...
Seems to be on the same wavelength as my ‘some other where’ of this morning’s post.
Thank you, Jean! 🙂
Wow, so beautiful and so red 🙂
I like your poem, and especially the line “where there doesn’t exist and neither do I” 🙂
Thanks, Sci! They are rather common on our riverbank. They are also the Illinois state bird.
Regarding the poem… yes, separation and the ego can dissolve into something much more intelligent, compassionate, and wise. 🙂
You’re lucky 🙂
Thanks, Sukanya! 🙂
I can only agree with all others, Thomas. Wonderful birds you have in USA, have a nice day, regards Mitza
Thanks, Mitza! 🙂 They are rather common on our riverbank area.
Yesterday, when i put Tweetie’s food in her cage, while she and Scarlett were watching the animated cartoon of Zou on their tv, i asked Tweetie if she liked Zou. Tweetie looked at me and said (in a sweet, little voice), “Yes… i do!” Zou is a superb show with a family of talking zebras. They are always very polite and caring (which is a perfect example for children); it’s a lot better than some of the stuff with mindless violence!
You are right, that there’s a lot of stuff with mindless violence in tv. I must admit that’s one of the reasons that I don’t like American films because every 2 minutes something explodes, burns or somebody is killed. I don’t need this kind of “entertainment” and fortunately we have some very good cultural programs for learning here.
Thanks for the Tweetie-news. It’s so cute and so intelligent what she says. Greetings to the birds, have a nice weekend, too, regards Mitza
Love that last stanza; “Impeccable movement with deep immovability…”
Thank you, Lindy! 🙂
It has a lot of very deep meaning. Here is an example of one of the others of us who fully understood what it meant:
Excerpt from the ancient Gospel of Thomas:
Jesus said: “If they ask you: What is the sign of your Father in you?, say to them: It is movement and rest.”
May I quote that line in my post with a link to this post?
Impeccable movement with deep immovability
Yes, Lindy! 🙂 Stay perceptive and caring!
Thank you, waternymph87plus1! 🙂
Beautiful capture. The poem is deep…
Thanks, Amy! i hope so! 🙂
Wonderful poem and photos, especially enjoyed the Digital Photo Art Red Cardinal.
Thank you! Stay curious and perceptive! 🙂
Elusive Trope has a new blog with an interesting twist; check it out at elusivetrope.com
The premise is simple. I provide one phrase every Thursday, an incomplete string of words, and it is up to you to complete it in your own, inimitable way. However you like, taking it in any direction you want.
If you like the concept, please play along and post the complete challenge on your blog and leave a link in the comments section below.
I love the mental exercise, I hope you do too!
This week’s phrase –
“”I’m sorry, ” I said……..”
Elusive Trope’s attempt:
but since I had already closed the car door, I doubt she heard me.
