** Staples Singers - "Respect Yourself"

- " We do not move forward from a middle opinion, which is undemocratic but mediocratic.
We advance from a creative passion "- (Edgar Morin)

- "To photograph is to hold one's breath, when all faculties converge to capture fleeting reality. It's at
that precise moment that mastering an image becomes a great physical and intellectual joy."
- Henri Cartier-Bresson.

::Words from Denny:
- My beliefs, and values, have always been strongly tied-to music, especially Jazz, and Blues.
- The following artists and lyrics seem to "sum-up" where my spirit resides:
EARTH WIND AND FIRE;
"HOLD ON TO YOUR SPIRIT,
ALWAYS FEEL YOUR SOUL....
HONOR THE MAGIC IN YOUR HEART"
; Earth Wind and Fire

Thank you Jack - yes it is a simple shot but I am pretty happy. I stuck this on my screensaver here at work and I must say it even looks pretty good on full screen diplay: very cool and refreshing for this hot muggy east coast (I miss the West). Thanks very much, Jack

@PD: HI Again Paul and thank you VERY much for checking out some of my blog. I really was pretty happy with this one - so cool and relaxing and the beads came out better than I thought they would - I was in a really bad mood when I took this shot (long story) maybe that's the key :-)
