Back to Basics

It's time for a rebirth of the spirit...

Here, at the western edge of Death Valley, we can take a breath and just let our soul and spirit rejuvenate themselves.

Close your mind to all bad things.
Try to feel as the Shoshone did
Here in this place, on the western edge of Death Valley.

The wind, the sun, the hawk,,
the owl, and the coyote.
They are all here.

It is time.

** 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
