Wherefore we alight upon these mineraled grounds
far from the dainty blossoming stores
with their nectar prizes all too pure and sugary seeded?
To extract something tangible and something intangible
must occur together as a unified whole
in and out of the recurrent clockwork of time that was needed.
The Cabbage Butterfly Club. Video by Thomas Peace c. 2016
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.

wonderful post – as usual – Thomas, thanks for sharing your wisdom and beauties with us, regards Mitza
Thank you, Mitza! They are not just getting minerals along the river bank; they are socializing in their special meeting place! 🙂
I love butterflies, Thomas. That’s really interesting to hear. I would love to be a butterfly in our garden. Have a nice Sunday and greets to Tweetie, Mitza
Oh superb poem and video 🙂
Thanks, Sci! There is endless river bank for them to get minerals from… but they meet together to “be together”! 🙂

Gosh – social butterflies! 🙂
