HI EVERYONE - THANKS FOR YOUR COMMENTS ON THIS IMAGE - I HOPE TO POST A NEW IMAGE, IF NOT SATURDAY, SUNDAY FOR SURE...THANKS AGAIN.

Skunk Cabbage and budding trees at Graver Arboretum, Bangor, PA. This is a wonderful arboretum which is owned and operated by the Muhlenberg College in Bethlehem, PA. I will post a few more images of this arboretum in the coming week or two. I hope you like this view.....Although the name Skunk Cabbage implies otherwise, in reality, they really don't have much of an odor at all.

** 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"
