A "Restful Peace" Piece

I should apologize for holding the previous piece on so long. I was away and very busy with work so, as John Lennon once sang "I Just Had to Let it Go."

Thank you all for your VERY sweet and kind comments. I sincerely appreciate them. As I mentioned, work has kept me quite busy and, soon, our son and daughter-in-law and two adorable granddaughters will be flying back east to visit us - so things will get quite active. You can be sure that I will be sharing family "brag shots," but I will always try to intersperse them with nature shots as best I can.

Finally, I truly want to thank all of you for your patience with me and understanding when I am unable to respond to your comments. Most of you who really know me know that conversing back and forth with others on AM3 is probably me favorite activity here. So thanks again.

I wish you peace.

** 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
