Cherry Blossoms just now getting ready to bloom in Amy's yard in Vermont. It was a Long Hard winter. ...Barbara and I are making the 7-1/2 hour drive from Essex Junction, Vermont to niagara Fall, Ontario to spend a few days there. Thank you all for your very kind comments and your patience in tolerating my lack of responses...but I Love to see your comments and hope to get back to more normal operations soon. :-)

** Staples Singers - "Respect Yourself"

- " 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
