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.

Fantastic photo 🙂
I and I love your “If trees could swim” poem. 🙂
Thank you, Scifi! … it means a lot! 🙂
You’re very welcome. 🙂
Is “feet would fall” a reference to devolution (or evolution from Nature’s perspective?
When this poem wrote itself, it was referring to something much more direct, simple, and less abstract. 🙂
great poem, Thomas. Lovely toad. Is it an enchanted prince? Have a nice weekend, regards Mitza
Mitza, you are more than welcome to kiss him and find out! 🙂 He looks like he could use a transforming kiss!
Hoping your weekend is magical!
Thanks a lot. I’ll try to find an enchanted prince 🙂
Wow… you’re doing that thing again. Everything becomes larger than life and we all fall in. It must be the toad, they’re supposed to be magical… great, thanks
If toads are magical, then we live in the enchanted forest! There are lots of them here along the river we live on.
Thanks so much, tiramit! 🙂
Thanks much, Sandy! He is one huge, old toad… not born this year (that is for sure)! 🙂
I loved this poem and photos too, Tom. Made me hoppy.
I’m glad, Jet! Keep hoppin’ and snappin’! 🙂
Nice toad! It reminded me of the Mr. Toad character by A. A. Milne.
Thank you, SoyBend! 🙂 He seemed to have a lot of personality!
Amazing picture Tom! 🙂
Thank you, Marcela! 🙂 Keep snappin’!
Toads have such beautiful eyes! Lovely pic and poem Tom 🙂
I love the perspective in this poem!
