Il est le commencement, c'est la fin

This is the beginning, yet, it is the end
The passing of summer and warm days.
Crops are concluding their growth.
Leaves are through being green and will soon depart;
But the next season is standing in line, ready to give us pleasure;

I greet the seasons like a kid on a merry-go-round.
I hear Joni Mitchell's wonderful song - "The Circle Game" ...
A smile here, a tear there...as one leaves and the other arrives,
But old friends always return - Summer will return,
And now, Autumn is our returning friend; Welcome.

- " 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
