In My Shoes

Posted by

He has no home;
He has no money;
He tried to work but got laid off;
Each time it happened he flashed back to The war;
And his ears were screaming and his head was spinning
And he tried more drink....again;
And he used more dope....again;
But finally he gave up - and he screamed so loud...
There by the street- he couldn't even remember how he got there;
As he left his shoes there and stepped into the traffic's path;
Those of us who know nothing just make judgements!
We don't know his shoes!

- " 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
