Harvest Moon

Posted by

Captured Thursday Morning, 19 Sep 2013, here is the Harvest Moon just before it plunges below the western horizon. The Algonquin Indians named the moon "Harvest Moon " because they were able to harvest their corn by the light of the full September moon.

ALSO, the Autumnal Equinox occurs on Sunday 22 Sep 2013. The song "Equinox, by John Coltrane, always dwells in my mind, but especially now. Here is a link if you care to listen to Trane's magnificent musical journey through this song http://youtu.be/5m2HN2y0yV8

- " 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
