Water, Water Everywhere

I have never been able to understand why we can't come uo with some kind of "Water Logisitics System" like a pipeline or aquaduct that allow us to move large amounts of water from one part of the country to another, California does it within their State. So, why can't the US, as a whole, do the same thing? Talk about a jobs producer! Here in the Mid-Atlantic and Northeast, we have had MORE than a surplus of water, while Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, and many other states have been suffering unduly because of terrible, record droughts. Although this may be pretty to look at, our skies have been like this for quite awhile here in Eastern Pennsylvania and New Jersey. Rain is hitting us again with creeks and streams already filled to the brim and now flowing over again. It just doesn't seem fair.

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
