Autumn Leaves vs Hatred

Posted by Denny Jump (Bellevue, WA, United States) on 21 November 2015 in Plant & Nature.

The Beauty of Autumn Leaves sometimes can help us to leave our stressful thoughts behind - but for a short while - and make a small journey to fresh mind and heart and vision.

So much seems wrong these days! So much hatred and vehemence. It makes me sad, really...so I try to see some beauty around me and I try to get my head and heart back into a loving place...trying not to be kidnapped by the hate that seems to envelope us all.

** 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
