Happy Anniversary Baby....47 Years!!

Forty Seven years ago today, I woke up on my wedding day a happy man....the happy man is still here.....I had been home from Vietnam about one week and life was good. It is even better now - in fact, it gets better with each passing year.

I grow older each year but I become more and more thankful for the Angel who waited for me and held my hand in our hearts for one year and then allowed me to take her hand in Marriage on a cool December night at a Military Base in Sacramento, California.....She is still with me and I wonder many times how can a guy be so lucky.

The love of my life is with me - That's all I need.

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"
