While the West Coast of the US thankfully receives some snow in the mountains and rain in the lower elevations, we here in the Eastern part of the US are still waiting for winter. In fact, our temperatures have been more spring-like for almost 2 weeks now, and more if the same is expected for another 5-6 days.
As a Westerner originally, I am truly grateful that the west s getting, at least some amount of precipitation! They direly need it.
Meantime, these Birches are in waiting for winter....they really don't seem to mind, though. In fact hardly anyone here in the East seems to be too upset about this great weather:-)

- " 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."

::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
