Winter is Passing

Winter is passing;
The Hillsides and Farms are waiting;
The sun is here, but just for a bit;
Not here long enough...Not just yet........
Soon, though, Soon...the waiting will be over.
Then, "Old Man Winter"...with whom we have that love-hate relationship...
will Pass.....
Only to be "wished-for" once again.....in August.

- " 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
