Nature Undone

I have lately wondered........:
How can a day that starts so beautiful and glorious end with death and misery, brutality and fear all around?
How can life be devastated by darkness and brutality so quickly?
How can love and Joy be destroyed by fear and hatred so strongly?
How can people hate others so much that they want to kill them?
How can a society - if we must call ourselves that - be so swept up in bitterness and prejudice that we allow preachers and politicians of hatred represent us - or try to?
I don't know - I don't know,...... I Do Not Know!....

But my heart still beats! And as long as it does I will wonder why, but I will also do whatever I can to spread love.. not hatred... As Best I Can.

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
