Nothing does more for the heart
Than a little girl with her dad;
In a park, on a walk, or playing at the beach.
She holds his hand and talks to him
With that look in her eyes that says,
"Dad, YOU are the king! I know I am safe
and I am so very happy!"
He smiles back at her, and talks with her
about anything and everything: The ducks, the water, the sand;
But his mind is racing with thoughts of
this young princess
and how she will grow,
and how she will be....and what she will see;
His heart is bursting with joy;
But he keeps it contained...just a bit;
Because he wants her to enjoy this moment,
this day, this place, in a way that she will remember it so much, much more:
By having it be but a single chapter in an entire book of Wonderful, Beautiful, Happy memories..
.....just like this one.
And with this little girl it will be just that way;
And with this Loving Dad it will be just that way.

We advance from a creative passion "- (Edgar Morin)

that precise moment that mastering an image becomes a great physical and intellectual joy."

- 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:
