Sometimes, "seeing through the fog" is a real challenge!
Seeing the forest is often an easier thing to do than seeing the tree;
Seeing the tree as an individual requires patience, tolerance, and understanding;
Seeing only the forest allows for a more broad stereotype;
Understanding and insight are not acquired traits, they are a learned skill derived from love.
In hopes that we can practice tolerance....I wish you all a great week!
Thank you everyone for your kind comments as always. I have been away but will try to post more in the coming days...On Thursday of this week, we will be traveling to Vermont for an extended weekend, so I hope to have some good sports and perhaps some early autumn colour shots to share with you all next week. In the interim, there will be my typical hodge podge and blab :-) Love to you all...Denny
** 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
