When We were Young and Free Wheeling

Posted by
Denny Jump (Bellevue, WA, United States) on 25 January 2013 in People & Portrait.

When we were Young and free wheeling;
When we absorbed every laugh, every slice of joy,
Every hour, every minute, every second;
When we Laughed and laughed; ran and ran, scooted and scooted;

We were young, we were happy, we had no fears;
We sang, we rolled, we tumbled, we tackled.
Life was what it was meant to be;

But it does not have to leave,just because we are "old";
it does not have to go;
We can still be the same as we were back then;
If we take the fear out of our souls,
And replace it with laughter;
Take the bitterness from our minds
And replace it with love.

Denny Jump, 2013

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"
