"East Side Blues" - ("Where I Dream to Be")

Posted by

This is the beginning..."The Time of the Season," as the Zombies sang!
This is the time when beautiful colours of another breed begin to display their very own special talents and they eventually overpower the Purples , Pinks, Reds, Whites and Greens of Summer as it begins to fade into the distance,

We all have places where we dream of being in a particular season and THIS is the place that I dream of being in Autumn: The East Side! No, Not New York as jazzy as that might be.....Not the Cascades as powerful as they may be... .No...I want to be Here, on the Eastern side of the Sierra Nevada Mountains. Where the Aspens, Birch, and Sycamore join together, their golden leaves dancing a jitterbug in the breeze while the azure sparkling waves of the beautiful lakes slap in percussive rhythms!

Yes - Here, on the Eastern Side of the beautiful Sierra Nevada Mountains is where my dreams take me!
After all, It's "The time of the season!"

- " 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
