On This Day

Posted by
Denny Jump (Bellevue, WA, United States) on 31 March 2013 in Plant & Nature.

On this day,
With the world in danger at every turn...
I pray.
Something I do not often do;
Not that I don't believe in prayer....I do,
It's just that I don't do it that much;
So, I try to connect - to feel - to believe,
in my own way, I guess.

But today, on this day....I do pray
I pray that the sacrifice of one can still save the rest of us;

But help will be needed.
Ultimately, it is up to us - those of us with the "level heads -
to calm and bring reason to this world......
If not for ourselves, then for our children,
We owe them that much and so much more.

Let there be peace and love in this world,....Please!

- " 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
