Childhood Time and Beyond…



Childhood time is a magical time)

      and it’s all about magic (really)

               life is

It’s so beautifully full of magic

               life is 

And youthful joy is that wonderment

      and that feelingcloseto

               sweet immortality

So many adults lose those wonderous moments

      drink to their bitter depression

      and go through the motions without

               ever being alive

?Why do they stop asking questions

?Why do they with starched faces

      cadaverously walk right past joy and beauty

I don’t ever want to grow up

I don’t ever want to grow up

I don’t ever want to grow up

Childhood time is a magical time

      and it’s all about magic

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. To follow my unique Blog of "Nature Photos and Mindfulness Sayings" and for RSS feeds to my new posts, please access at: (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!...

  1. Yes, let’s not grow up Tom. I still see everything in nature with awe and amazement. Have not seen the Silver Spotted Skipper. Only have the Brown Skipper in our area. Good post and great photos.


  2. monkey enjoy always picture what tom share nice with reader. Man & monkey both agree with idea tom say. Man say always there 6 year old boy alive inside himself & that = best part of himself.


  3. yes, Thomas, that’s so true and sad at the same time. We should stay a bit “childish”, but sometimes life asks you to grow-up very early. Have a nice day, regards Mitza


    • Things can make a person, as you say, Mitza, grow up very early. However, one can still keep that inner youth and innocence going on forever. When i was a young child i had to repeatedly talk my mother out of committing suicide, and i watched my mother’s hair burst into flames because of what my father did.


      • That wasn’t really a nice childhood, Thomas. I’m very happy you “survived” it in a good way. My childhood was very sad, too, and unfortunately it’s still like a burden on my soul. I’m very happy that I could give a nice childhood to my son. Regards Mitza

  4. As the oldest of five kids, I had to be such a grown up little girl with responsibilities early on. Now, in my fifties, I am finally living and expressing as I would have chosen to back then. I play… I laugh and I take time to enjoy simple things. Today I took a nap in the deer pen with Emma and Ronnie. Every time I walk to the river I think of stories of adventure – the things I would have thought of as a kid. I still love to read a good animal story. It’s easy to think as a child.
