"Misty" Thinking of You

After processing this in Snapseed and iPhoto, viewing it and thinking about it just brought Erroll Garner's rendition of "Misty" crashing into my mind! Garner was a magnificent pianist with a style that was utterly unique. He normally played with a steady, "comping" rhythm in his left hand, and his melodies were played with the right hand in a manner that was absolutely captivating and definitely one-of-a-kind.

Sometimes I do wonder about myself ;-)....My mind almost always has one song or the other, one artist or the other floating around in it. And then, that song, or artist stays in my head for long time ;-) I love Jazz, Blues, and pretty much everything else out there as well! And, yes, I love Geese. So if that is what going crazy means, perhaps that's not so bad ;-)

Here is a you tube clip of Erroll Garner playing Misty. in the 1960's.

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"
