Hope...

Posted by
Denny Jump (Bellevue, WA, United States) on 27 June 2012 in Landscape & Rural.

Sometimes Hope is all we have to hold on to;
Like a baby fern on the side of a granite cliff
We are that baby fern,
we cling, we hope, we pray... because sometimes,
that's all there is.

But then, the light shines,
We can believe....and we can dream;
And we know that our loved ones who are gone are safe
in their new place,

We cannot see them,
But we can "see" them,
And Hope tells us that they are there,
And they are watching ......
Always.

- " 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"
