Awakening

Posted by
Denny Jump (Bellevue, WA, United States) on 14 April 2014 in Plant & Nature.

To come to life once again;
To Arise from the cold and uninspired dreariness,
It is time ....

I see a light....
But is it for the first time?
Or is it once again?

We search for a new beginning
When staleness becomes too much to bear
'We search for a new awakening When what we had before
was dead and cold and depressing,
When we are at that point..... when we know we must make a change....
a new beginning, We have two roads to chose from;
If we are lucky, we start to see the light again and say to ourselves,
"Wake Up and start again!"
I chose this road.
And This is where I am.

- " 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
