Waxing "Worm" Moon

Posted by

High above me on Friday evening, the waxing moon for March - known as the "Worm Moon," was a making a grand show of things. First Nation tribes of Canada and many Native American tribes of the US described this month's moon as such, because, in March, the soil begins to loosen and warm up, encouraging earthworms to begin their springtime activity.

I was really enjoying the sky Friday evening. The clouds made perfect reflective elements for the setting sun, and the air was clean, making the blues absolutely beautiful.

- " 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
