Seasonal Progression

Posted by
Denny Jump (Bellevue, WA, United States) on 9 March 2015 in Landscape & Rural.

Finally the sun seems to be shining stronger,
The winds don't seem to cut through the bone so fiercely.
The birds seem to fly with a new purpose
We cross our fingers and hope that, although we love snow and fun,
The progression of time will carry us to the next stage where we can
marvel in Nature's never ending array of gifts - Spring.

** 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
