Hot Day...Cool Fruit, Hot Jazz...Cool Conversation

The Day is Red Hot - Like a Sid Catlett Drum solo backing up Satchmo
Apples = Crisp, cool, sweet.... Like Sarah Vaughan's singing
Yellow=Warm....Like a Mundell Lowe Guitar solo
Banana=Smooth, mellow, yet energizing.....like a conversation wth Richard
Things in common, so nicely shared
Life's stories - off the cuff, unprepared...
But so very well understood!
Hearts are warm, like the day
A friendship solidifies.... here to stay
Peace and pleasure on this Hot / Cool Day

** 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
