"The Cape"

Posted by
Denny Jump (Bellevue, WA, United States) on 29 July 2014 in Landscape & Rural.

The gentle rain falls from time to time;
The breeze is cool, but the sun smiles down, as well,
It warms my skin as it it bounces In and out,
playing with the clouds,;

The sand sticks to my feet as I walk toward the wooden steps that take me down;
Not wanting me to ignore them, the strands of sea grass scratch my legs gently as they pass:

The sea lies calm today, but the colors change gently;
gray, blue, green, then back to gray, softly carrying the boats as they spend an afternoon of leisure, floating gently for a day:

I see all these things and more;
The flowers that bloom, the little fences in the sand,
All so much a part of Cape Cod;

I feel the soulful gentleness of this place now;
The spirit of Cape Cod enters ones heart, and stays there forever;

** 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
