Light Come Shining

Hi Everyone -

Please allow me to apologize, but also say thank you
to each and every one of you;

Thank you all, for being so kind and patient and for your
wonderful and generous comments, I read all of them and
I am so grateful to you for them;

Apologies are for yours truly not being around much to respond to your wonderful comments or to visit your blogs, which I really miss doing.

Hopefully the craziness will end soon. But it sems every time I think that I am seeing the light at the end of the tunnel, the "light" turns out to be a UP/SP (Union Pacific/Southern Pacific) Freight train headed straight towards me!!

So, in that vein - I give you this image of a truthful light and the lyrics of a truly brilliant artist of our time A man who saw the light of truth and equality: Bob Dylan:

From the Bob Dylan composition "I Shall Be Released":

"They say ev'rything can be replaced,
Yet ev'ry distance is not near.
So I remember ev'ry face
Of ev'ry man who put me here.
I see my light come shining
From the west unto the east.
Any day now, any day now,
I shall be released."
Lyrics by Bob Dylan.

Peace

- " 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"
