Staying a Believer - Visualiziing Peace

Posted by
Denny Jump (Bellevue, WA, United States) on 13 September 2011 in People & Portrait and Portfolio.

Having said words of sorrow and despair yesterday, we all must eventually make a decision as to which direction we want to go. As much as I despair over the terrible way we humans sometimes behave, I know that the vast majority of us have hearts that guide is through our lives and open themselves to others. The wonderful Curtis Mayfield once wrote a song entitled "I PLan to Stay a Believer"....and so do I. I wil always try to preach and Visualize Peace!

- " 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
