What does a Mother Dream?

Posted by
Denny Jump (Bellevue, WA, United States) on 8 May 2011 in Plant & Nature and Portfolio.

This Dogwood blossom is my gift to all mothers everywhere.

What does a mother dream?

Perhaps she dreams of safety and happiness for her children.
Maybe she dreams of the day when the world's inhabitants can coexist without requiring the sacrifice of her beloved children in wars. Wars brought about because of intolerance and hatred. Mothers know that hatred stems from fear and selfishness, not from gallantry. There is no gallantry in hatred.

Perhaps Mothers dream of prosperity - prosperity of love....A mother is the most unselfish creature in the world. She loves her children without a second thought. A mother is one who knows that the only possible way to a future where we can all enjoy the prosperity of love is to show her children how to love, how to give and how to coexist.

And so - on this day for Mothers here in North America - I say "Happy Mother's Day" to my beautiful wife Barbara, who gave us our wonderful children, and I say Happy Mother's Day to all Mom's everywhere!.
Please know that we love you, we thank you, we need you.
Keep dreaming of the Prosperity of Love.

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."

::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
