First Stop, Lillehammer! Then....

Posted by

Saint Nikolaus begins his vacation today. First, a few runs on the slopes near Lillehammer.
Then, he's off to Hawaii for a much needed dose of sunshine, warmth, and pure Kona Coffee!!

Where we live, this year's December weather has been much milder than normal. We plan to be at our daughter Amy's for several days, so I will try to post some shots. But, if I don't, please accept my wishes for a continued Happy Holiday Season!

Next up: New Years!!

Cheers, everyone!!

** 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
