Sunday Stroll

Posted by

Weekends with Barbara have provided a much-needed respite from the overload of work I have been dealing with. We went for a wonderful, long walk on Sunday. Part of it led us along the beautiful Bushkill Creek, which flows quite close to our house. These two ducks, floating effortlessly downstream, gave me a big smile (in my heart as well as on my face) as we watched them enjoying their ride. It seems a Sunday Stroll can do anyone some good...If we just allow it to try.

- " 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
