Ryan Roberge - Hockey Star

When we visited our daughter and her family in Vermont last weekend we were able to see two basketball games with our middle grandson Tyler ( I will post a few images later) and a hockey practice and scrimmage with our youngest grandson, Ryan. The hockey takes place at the local Essex , VT High School Hockey Rink. In this image, Ryan is wearing the yellow helmet. Although the puck had disappeared from this shot, I will have one or two others later on. Here they are mixing it up. These little guys are really cute to watch in person.

** 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
