Mother Holds the Light

Posted by

In those times when we lost our way;
In those minutes of panic and self doubt;
In those futile days of despair when we lost all we had;
One hand was held our way;
One Light with a smile would shine upon us
No matter what we had done,
No matter the darkness of our deed;
A Mother held the light and reminded us to pray
A mother told us we were loved;
She would never go away;
Once again we became,
That child of need and want;
And she was there and she is there and she always will be there;
We only have to reach out and touch the heart and see the smile;
And feel the warmth of her love;
For, she is always there and has always been
The Mother who is our only true light.

- " 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
