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!...

Yes, Scifi! 🙂 Red Cardinals are the State Bird for the State of Illinois.
A very good choice. Such bright colours. 🙂

Proof that I am not the only one who sees this.
Thank you much for the Reblog… and i’m so very glad that you perceive their magic being too! 🙂
In times like these one could envy a little bird for being free, have a Happy Easter, Thomas, regards Mitza
Yes indeed, Mitza! You have a Happy Easter too! We just got an Easter Card today from our 92-year-old aunt. I hope I can send out Easter Cards at that age! 🙂
I’m sure you can do that, too, Thomas. 🙂
Cardinals always add a welcome splash of color.
This is a sweet guy.
Happy Easter, Tom.
Yes, they sure stand out and can brighten anyone’s day even more! Hoping your Easter, Sandy, is chocolate egg delicious! 🙂
We have a couple beautiful cardinals in our backyard, needn’t pay taxes. 🙂
Great to hear, Amy! 🙂 I was sitting in the backyard today watching some; they sure look dignified!
What a lovely bird. Too bad we don’t have any in my area!
Yes, Karen, but you have many other excellent species! Gulls, especially, have their intrinsic beauty! 🙂
Ha – funny Tom. Lucky bird – He does not pay taxes. Lol
Peggy, if the crawling politicians could find a way to get to him he would! 🙂

Yes, Angela, they are uplifting! Just watched a male and a female yesterday… and they were so cute! 🙂
