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!...
wonderful words and photos, Thomas. The second photo looks as if you painted it or some famous French painter from 1900. Beautiful colors. Have a nice day, regards Mitza
Much appreciated, Mitza! I sure hope that you are continuing with your wonderful painting! Nothing beats real, authentic painting. Post more of your works sometime! 🙂
I have to plan my days with military precision and still don’t find time to paint very often. I’m just doing some jewelry. Have a nice weekend, greets to Tweetie, Mitza
Well, we’re looking forward to photos of the jewelry then! Jewelry too is real art.
The birds, Tweetie included, will be getting a new brand of bird pellet food soon (it’s coming in the mail)… with better ingredients and no food coloring; i hope they like it!
Really mineral and water create miracle. That’s an excellent purple “sea”. Very nice photo.
Thanks, Sayanti! 🙂 Too many of us are oblivious or indifferent about the natural beauty and miracles all around us.
My pleasure. It just needs an eye to see that miraculous beauty of nature. Those, who have that, can enjoy the nature.
Such beautiful pictures 🙂
Thank you, Aishwarya! 🙂
Such a beautiful post, Tom. Eloquent words go perfectly with your beautiful photos
Thank you, Amy! 🙂
More should plant trees and flowers, rather than trying to maim and destroy others.
Lovely capture of this iris!
Thanks, Karen! Iris blossoms are one of my favs! 🙂
