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. Tom –

    I just started following you last night after you “liked” my blog post about the “ice-cutter” swan. I looked at some of your posts, admired your photography and clicked “follow”. I am far from a great photographer, in fact, just mediocre, but sometimes Mother Nature grants me a great opportunity to take photographs of beautiful creatures. Yesterday was such an opportunity. Two weeks ago, I was on a walk in the same Park and taking pictures of a pair of mute swans in the water. One was making snorting noises and I thought he was doing that because he had been dipping his head in the cold water. Next thing I knew, he came stomping out of the water, up the Creek bank and got into my face! I remembered feeding swans peanuts at a separate venue, so I tossed him a few (I always have peanuts on hand for the squirrels) and whew … he was content, so I made a quick getaway. I don’t know if this is the same mute swan, but I decided that I was going to make him the subject of yesterday’s post.

    I began a walking regimen in 2011 because I work from home as a legal secretary and was not getting enough exercise. I have a degree in journalism (1978) but have never worked in that field. I live in Southeast Michigan, so am at the whim of the weather as to fulfilling my walking regimen. I have been blogging at WordPress since February 2013 when I decided to write about my daily walks. Along the way, my blog has morphed from a paragraph or two of text only, to longer blog posts complete with photos.

    The two hobbies of walking and writing are the best two things I’ve never done for myself. Just in the last six months, my blog traffic increased after I started following some interesting travel blogs and made some comments. I enjoy the interaction with other bloggers immensely.

    Thank you for the invitation to share my latest post as described above. – Linda Schaub


      • Thank you Tom – I did see that last night –
        I hope I don’t disappoint you as most of my posts ARE nature related, but sometimes I stray to other topics, but your blog is more than photos and I like that … the swan on Sunday was out of the ordinary, and a great deal of the time, I am merely musing with the ducks, geese and the squirrels, especially one named Parker who is like having a pet. I’m looking forward to duckling and gosling time – more photo ops and a chance for the geese to hiss and spit and flap their wings at me when they deem I get too close to them and their babies. In reality I am 15 feet away and using a 12X digital camera … nothing fancy and any up-close pics are usual luck on my part. 🙂
