Pre -"Pond"- eration!

Before the changing of the season...
from Autumn - oh, so short, to Winter - oh-so long;
We rest by a beautiful pond and consider this time and this place
while the moon waxes in the eastern sky
So much to think about, so much to worry about, so much to laugh about;
But right now, we simply ponder the beauty of this time and place;
Beauty is a gift from Nature;
It is all around us and it is within us
and it is pleading for us to see,
Beloved Nature...

- " 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
