My Blog primarily consists of close-up nature photos (that I've taken locally) combined with original mindfulness sayings and/or poetry that deals with 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. To follow my unique Blog of "Nature Photos and Mindfulness Sayings" and for RSS feeds to my new posts, please access at: tom8pie.com (On my regular Blog posting pages, for additional information and to follow, simply click on the "tack icon" at the upper right corner... or, on my profile page, you can click on the "Thomas Peace" icon.) Stay mindful, understanding, and caring!...

  2. Always enjoy your posts, Thomas, because they have a certain high quality. So I could say, quality is not what you have, quality is what you are, Thomas. Have a nice day, greets to Tweetie, Mitza

  3. “Wisdom is what you are.”
    Indeed, the soul is Wisdom because it’s a part of the Creator, we are a drop f the ocean of all Consciousness.

      • “In the drop is the ocean.”

        That reminds me of a poem that I wrote a few years ago:

        Raindrops rush to rose petals
        To see their beloved ocean
        Singing on its fragrant flower
        Shore
