Seeing the Light....

Posted by
Denny Jump (Bellevue, WA, United States) on 22 April 2013 in Abstract & Conceptual.

It should be simple:
just follow your heart!
Yet, for many ......,
it seems the "light" that they see
is really the fire of hatred!

To "walk the walk" of tolerance
Is simple, really;
But many make it so difficult;
Still, others revolt against it;

Now more than ever,
We need to open our eyes and our minds;
We need to help and to hear;
We need to see the light that is right there.....
Right in front of us;
For ourselves and for the world.

** Staples Singers - "Respect Yourself"

- " 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
