These sweet ladies are all cousins! They comprise the female portion of a larger group of cousins that we adore!
From left is our granddaughter Aurora - oldest of the female cousins .
Aurora is holding Amity, the newest member of this group. Amity is the younger granddaughter of Barbara's sister, Debbie.....Next is Saylor who is Debbie's first Grandchild and, of course, Amity's big sister :-)
Then there is Cecilia, our youngest grandchild the future rock climber..
Then comes Makenna, the grand daughter of Barbara's sister, Bonnie.
All these girls were able to be together while we visited Barbara's sisters in Washington State. Additionally, our son, David, and his wife Lyndsy came up from California with Aurora and Cecelia.
This was a wonderful moment! Aurora was clearly happy but the rest were, well, typical little kids :-)
** Staples Singers - "Respect Yourself"
- " 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
