Wings and Prayers

The Sun rises - they are there
The sun sets - they are there
Their beauty is breathtaking
matching the beauty of the sky
equaling the beauty of a lover's smile
Then - one day -
They are gone - gone home
and we only have dreams and memories
for they are heading north - north to their spring and summer home
We are left with dreams and smiles
Come back soon Snow Geese!

** 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
