I’m on a roll with adding more good stuff to my Etsy shop :). Today, I added a shot I managed to capture a little while back on a summer afternoon in small town Florida. The photo is offered both as a digital download and a physical matted print of ‘Old Glory’ – our American Flag in honor of Flag Day, June 14th, 2021. I also figured where Independence Day / July 4th was right around the corner, this would be a good add. Please check it out in my Etsy Shop where you’ll find an additional picture in greater detail ;).
Thanks for droppin’ by, neighbor! And Happy Flag Day! Mike T.
With everything else I’ve had going these last several months, I shamefully admit I haven’t been as active as I should’ve been with my photography and my Etsy Shop. Oh well – life happens, ya know :). Well, that’s changed and is about to change even more.
Being a great lover of nature and landscape or scenic photography, I was informed by a friend that June 15th, 2021 is National Nature Photographers Day. This was enough to prompt me to post some new (and some older) stuff on my Etsy Shop ALL to do with a nature or wildlife theme. There are 4 new items available. All are offered in both digital download form as well as hard copy prints. The prints are on professional grade luster paper and printed with archival inks on my pro (Canon) printer in my studio. Size is standard 8″ X 10″ for the actual print and then mounted in an 11″ X 14″ white matte with backing (other sizes are available – please contact me direct for details: MikeThomasImagery@Gmail.com). Prints are then shipped via USPS Mail in a stiff / no bend mailer. Oh and did I mention shipping is FREE right now? Yeppers. Until further notice, all prints are shipped free. Prices and additional thumbnail pics are posted when you get navigate to my Etsy Shop.
Check `em all out if you have time. Even if you don’t have time, check 1em out anyway LOL :)/

The latest greatest podcast episode in my ongoing podcast, “The Storyteller Almanac” is live now. This episode quite different than anything I’ve put out there so far. Let me explain.
Several years back, I had this idea of creating sort of a ‘stories online’ type thing. These were all original pieces I’d conceived of and written. They were basically fiction but partially based on some of my real life experiences, interactions and people I’ve known during my lifetime. Each story is / was about 25 minutes long. The stories contained music mixed in, sometimes sound effects etc… They distantly resemble an old time radio program. Or perhaps to use a more specific analogy, they might remind you of a portion in my favorite radio program of all times, “A Prairie Home Companion” and the segment of that radio show that (original host and creator) Garrison Keillor used to call, “The News From Lake Wobegon.” If you’re not familiar with those references, not to worry. My podcast stories will make sense to you when you tune in and listen.
“Hope” is one of those stories that has a twist ending. But I’m not gonna explain. You’ll just have to go listen and hear for yourself 😜. If you like emotional, feel good stories then this is for you. I’d love to hear from you and what your thoughts and feelings are on this type of podcast / episode.
As always, you can find the podcast at www.StorytellerAlmanac.Com or on any of the major podcast platforms like Spotify, Apple. podcasts, Google Podcasts etc… And if you feel so inclined, ple ase follow / subscribe e to the podcast via one of those podcast platforms. No charge. No obligation and no salesperson will ever call 😎.
I’d like to convey a little reminder with Memorial Day 2021 just around the corner. I’ve created commemorative stickers and an art print (both created by yours truly) to offer. The art print is of the classic poem, “In Flanders Fields,” by John McCrae. It makes reference to soldiers that have given the supreme sacrifice and were buried in Flanders Fields during WW I.
The stickers I create are that of the red poppy flower. The poppy is symbolic and displayed / worn on Memorial Day as well as Poppy Friday (the Friday immediately preceding Memorial Day) to honor those who’ve given their supreme sacrifice while serving in the U.S. Military. Side note – the poppy has also come to be displayed on Veterans Day as well but has history and heritage more so connected to Memorial Day. Show your support for those individuals that helped secure our future!
Please see see the images and descriptions below of both these items.

EXTRA, EXTRA! Breaking news. OK, I’ll stop that. But I do have news…. I have not one but TWO new Albums out as of now. These are collective projects – meaning they’re all original songs from yours truly. They span the years from 1997 to about 2018. One is called, “Symphony For The Soul.” It’s all more of my fully orchestrated and upbeat stuff. The other album is called, “Solo Piano And Strings.” This one is geared more towards soothing and relaxing listening music. And the songs on this are also all original by me 😎.
Listen to a few samples from each new album plus an audio promo explaining a bit more about both projects.
