The Cape - "Old Glory" under Stormy Clouds

Posted by
Denny Jump (Bellevue, WA, United States) on 13 August 2014 in Landscape & Rural.

My sister arranged for a beautiful house rental on a bluff at Cape Cod...we had a great time and it was literally steps down the bluff to get to the beach to a large inlet. The evenings were beautiful and on a few particular evenings, the sunsets were amazing. My sister had all her kids and grandkids there, also my brother and his wife came all the way from California...Old Glory flew over the back lawn...The clouds overhead always reminded me of the "troubles" we seem to be experiencing now here in the States...I just wish that people would get along better than they do...We need respect and tolerance...not bitterness and hatred...

** 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
