"The Visitor'

Posted by
Denny Jump (Bellevue, WA, United States) on 2 February 2014 in Landscape & Rural.

A visitor came by last night while we slept;

Throughout the night snow came down. just as heavy as it could;
While we slept in our beds dreaming and snoring,
That little special visitor came by....just as he would;

He paid us a visit, he blessed our abode;
And he left nothing behind, 'cept his tracks in the snow;

Yes, his visit was a blessing... more than he knew;
'Cause we looked and smiled and laughed as our joy came anew;

Yes, he traveled in the night, from our house to yours,
And he blessed us one and all, by opening the 'doors';
The 'doors' of doubt and worry and care,
were now opened wide so everyone could share;

A Visitor came by during the night while we slept....

- " 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"
