The "Lineup"

Posted by
Denny Jump (Bellevue, WA, United States) on 1 March 2015 in Landscape & Rural.

On the very first day of March, it is said,
The trees line up to prove they are not dead;
The shiver and creak and crack and moan,
But they stand in the cold as if waiting for the phone;
For, they know they have a chance to not be cold anymore,
So they stand and dream of those sunny days from before,
Where the sun will shine bright and the leaves reappear,
And the trees can be happy again - for at least a half-year!

** 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
