" 'Sun' " in an Empty Room " - Photo by Lyndsy

Our Grandaughter, Aurora takes one last nap in her old bedroon as she and her mom and dad move to a new place.

Aurora and her mom Lyndsy, both just light up a room. This fact , coupled with the fact that one of our favorite indie rock bands, The Weakerthans, from Winnipeg, have a tremendous song entitled "Sun in an Empty Room" compelled me to design around this image that Lyndsy captured and the song lyrics.

Here are a few lyrics from the song while we enjoy looking at the real life sun: Aurora!

The song, "Sun in an Empty Room" By- The Weakerthans
From the 2007 album "Reunion Tour" on Anti Records:

"Now that the furniture's returning to its goodwill home
With dishes and last week's paper
Rumors and elections,
Crosswords, our unending wars
The black on our fingers smeared the ink on every door pulled shut
Now that the last month's rent is scheming with the damage deposit

Take this moment to decide (sun in an empty room)
If were meant it, if we tried (sun in an empty room)
Felt around for far too much (sun in an empty room)
Things that accidentally touch (sun in an empty room)"

Music and Lyrics by The Weakerthans

** 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
