.....They shine in the night sending out azure colored beams,
They focus on my heart and they shine in all my dreams;
They dwell in my soul to sooth me when she's away,
And they lift up my heart in every newborn day;
They bring me the sensations I get from all her charms,
And today I will have her back here in my arms...
Denny Jump June, 2012

that precise moment that mastering an image becomes a great physical and intellectual joy."
