I have realized that when I leave things all topsy my brain gets confused. Honest, things go fuzzy and I can't focus, either visually or mentally. So I tackled the "backgrounds" file in My Pictures and sorted them all, into Astronomy, Meteorology, Geology, Landscapes, Living Things, Merely Cool and Simple Walls (a newly discovered website called simple desktops, http://simpledesktops.com/. I swear I have breathed a little easier ever since.
Here are a few of my favorites. At least half if not more of my desktop collection comes from the National Geographic website:
|One of my perennials. My default choice since 2005.|
|Sedimentary rock and weathering, anyone?|
|I don't remember where this scene is located, but I appreciate how |
it represents all three geosciences.
As well as being stunningly gorgous.
|Although it' wasn't taken in Tennessee, this photo reminds me of the |
lush Smoky Mountain forest where my dad and step-mom live.
|Bathing parrot. I like to use this one during summer school.|
|I use this when it's state test time and the kids & I could use to lighten up a little.|
|Northern Owl at home in her forest.|
|Endangered Hyacinth Macaw from Amazon Rain Forest.|
|Newly discovered little octopus.|
|My sister in law Cassie took this exquisite photo at a |
downtown dim sum restaurant and sent it to me. I have a thing for koi.
|My current background, from simple walls. LOVE it!|
