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.

All hail the spider. It’s first lunar step was, in essence, eight.
Yes! And can you imagine spiders in low gravity?! 🙂
Just imagine how large they could build their webs there!
🙂 Or how high they could leap! 🙂
I certainly have changed over the years. A photo like this, in the past, would have made me go, “Ewwww….” Now, I just go, “Awwww….” Great photo of an equally fine creature.
Awesome, Linda! You are becoming way less arachnophobic!
No, no, no!!!!
Yes, yes, yes!!!!
What a great photo. You seem to have shown the little guy’s personality!
They have a lot of personality! All of those eyes and perfect acrobatic skills are indicative of real spirit and awareness. 🙂
hahaha If only! 😀
Keep watching where you step, Scifi. 🙂
Thanks much, Leyla. It wasn’t easy, on the moon. 🙂
Very cute! And good story too!
More spidery stories to come soon. 🙂
Nice close up of the spider. Some spiders shoot webs. I wonder how far one would go on the moon. 😊
Yes… that would be awesome! 🙂
Incredible photo, Tom! I love watching spiders weaving their webs! They too, just like ants are amazing creatures and will probably outlive us humans! 🙂
🙂 For sure, Sabine… for sure! They’ll live millions of more years beyond our time-span.
Awww, cute stories! I like spiders and we leave them alone if they are not the venomous sort.
Yes, i leave them alone or help them get outdoors. I’ll have a true story (around Halloween) about a huge one that i released after it bit me. 🙂
Hey that spider is cute!
Super cute!!! 🙂
It’s possible I guess😊Excellent photo!
But all of the human scientists will deny it. 🙂
My what big eyes you have … oh look, two sets of eyes. But no long lashes. 🙂 I heard this morning on the news feature “On this date in history” that it was 60 years ago today that the TV show “Twilight Zone” debuted. I never watched any sci-fi shows and I guess this was about as adventurous as I got in that regard. I always remember the one “Twilight Zone” about the spider that grew to epic proportions. Perhaps that was where I learned my fear or spiders.
The Twilight Zone usually had some underlying lesson (about goodness and Karma) to convey. So did a good number of shows back then. 🙂
Wait!… Around Halloween, i’ll have some true stories (about very huge spiders and me). 🙂
I enjoyed that show – I cancelled my cable in 2010 and had not watched TV for a while before that, just taped a few movies with the VCR, but they are still in a cabinet downstairs. I will look forward to your spider stories because they’ll be the real deal.
Loved the Halloween Moon Landing and photo!🙂
Good! This will be coming soon to your living room. Watch where you step! 🙂
