Is one really separate from what experiences are?

Passionate lipstick          Dreary clouds

          Angry vehicles          Bored jail bars

Smiling birthday cakes          Careful tightropes

          Dancing shoes          Hungry enchiladas 

Swearing beer bottles          Patriotic flags

          Sleepy beds          Frightened darkness        

Apprehensive boxing gloves           Giggling lollipops

          Complimentary babies          Relaxed swimming pools

Melancholy psychiatrists           Laughing balloons 

          Lost neighborhoods          Generous donation containers

Indifferent guns          Conversing ketchup bottles

          Impatient intersections          Whistling dogs

Proud properties          Disappointed traffic tickets

          Thirsty deserts          Indoctrinated religions

Upset bronze medals          Disenchanted politicians

          Peeing fire hydrants          Crying coffins

Thankful presents           Listening walls

           Reaching sandals          Talented pianos

Lying used cars          Flying flower blooms

          Inquisitive computer screens           Excited carnival rides

Nearsighted soup directions          Farsighted oak trees

          Insightful questions          Stagnant presumptions

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!...

  1. These are great!! I tried as I looked over these again and again, to find a favorite. I think I laughed hardest at “Lying Used Cars”. 😀

      • All of those were spot on and made me smile… but that one really hit home. I worked in the financial industry for many years and saw plenty of “used car” deals that were shady. I did not stay in the consumer or mortgage loan areas for long – not many banks are honest about disclosing the faux pas of the loan side either. I often thought it would be a good idea to be able to hire for a reasonable cost, a purchase agent to have the consumer’s back and find not only a good car but a good financial arrangement. So many people get rooked by both the dealer and the finance company.

    • Well, as you well know, Mitza, i am not into isolationist, mindless, territorialistic tribalism (otherwise known as patriotism), but am into peace and being a global citizen. I’m not a used car salesman either! Tee-hee (Even an un-understanding, separative person is the experiencing — and not separate from any experiences — even though they will not realize it.) And while others were eating turkey yesterday, for Thanksgiving, i was consuming vegetable products. Tweetie (another vegetarian) says, “Hi”! 🙂

      • I think in the name of “patriotism and religion” a lot of wars have been started.
        So you saved a turkey for Thanksgiving. That’s nice of you. We don’t celebrate this here.
        Give Tweeti a little greeting from me, regards Mitza

  2. These are all wonderful, relaxed swimming pools, I think I must have thought that’s what they are but never able to put it into words. Lying on their sides all the time, sometimes turning over. Great!

  3. Hi Tom, I love the ‘Far sighted oak trees.’ Very wise trees and wise words. Beautiful photos and a brilliant blog. Also, thanks for visiting me on mine.
    Great to meet you and I will be back again.
