As we celebrate Mother's Day around the world, even though we may observe it on different days, I would like to send a message of peace to all Mothers.
As I processed this image - taken near my daughter's house in Vermont - I started to think about the relationship between Mother Earth and Mothers of all Children. ...The earth is everyone's mother. I hope that we can remember that and treat Mother Earth with the same reverrance that we would our birth Mothers.

- " 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
