Native Visions

If only they knew then what they know now!
Their love for the earth and it's inhabitants persuaded them to offer compassion and hope.
But when they did, their offerings of peace and friendship were
destroyed by deceit, murder, and theft; Their visions were based
on trust and love.....But the reality was they were deceived.

Beauty is Beauty - it does not change.
What really changes is the vision of that beauty when trust is destroyed.

- " 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
