I don't think I have much Irish in me...my name, as far as anyone can tell, has its roots in England and perhaps Scotland - although I don't think I have EVER heard of anyone named Jump outside of the United States...so Who Knows!......So my point is, it doesn't seem to matter who we are or where we come from, there's something about St Patricks Day that compels people to put on something green and get smashed. Now I have green on my shirt but I haven't gotten smashed since December 25, 1991 (Long Story) . So wherever you are, if you are so inclined, have one for me and Have a Great St patty's Day....!
** 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
