Contemplation, Final Verse - "The Child is Gone"

Posted by
Denny Jump (Bellevue, WA, United States) on 11 September 2012 in Documentary & Street.

In the tragedy that ensued on Tuesday, September 11, 2001,
Eight Children died - all were onboard planes;

Our Children did not start this,
They had no choice in their fate - it was decided by others;
Yet, for that reason and no other, those children were forever lost;
And in that moment, On that day...
The "child" was taken from all of us.

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"
