"Leaves of Remembrance"

"CHERISH IT ALWAYS"

Dressed in purple, the color of healing, She was on her way to him;
He was wearing red, the red of his own blood - the blood of war;
He was caught in a branch, slowly dying from his wounds;
She became entangled also, struggling desperately to break free;
The branches kept her from getting any closer to him;

Finally they inched close enough to each other and their eyes met;
and he called to her with all the strength he could gather,
"I will always love you, my dear wife....Take my soul and all my love....
....and know that I love you;"
She cried and cried as she heard his voice, Barely able to speak she
called to him - "I will keep your soul and I will cherish it always"

- " 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
