As Hurricane Irene approaches the New Jersey/New York /PA areas, ccoffe in the rain, before the "hammer falls" is the thing to do. This was taken from a local Starbucks and, as you can see, no big deal, just rain...but we are still far north of the hurricane...Brooklyn, NY has already been advised of ademand for evacuation of about 300,000 residents as of 10:00 AM Eastern Time Saturday...The Worst is just now hammering North Carolina as I write this at 10:23 AM....Tonight and Tomorrow it will be our turn....Fortunately , we are a good bit inland but watching out and taking precautions anyway. I'll be back...Happy Saturday to those fof you not facing this!
** 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
