July 1 - Canada Day: A day when that great and beautiful nation celebrates their freedom,independance, and diversity..

Canada has always been in my heart. My maternal ancestors all hailed from Canada. Even though I have never met them "face to face, I close my eyes and see my mother's father and his families before. And so, with your permission, may I send my love and wish a very HAPPY CANADA DAY to all of you!

** 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
