Through the Darkness - Into the.....

Posted by

We take the steps that come to us -
even when we can not see where we are going;
The soldier on ambush patrol walks through the murky night
wondering if death will be at the next step;
The child, now adult, moves forward without any knowledge of what awaits;

Most of us have these times where we see the open door but we do not see what lies in between - in that area between our nervous face and that open door that we see waiting for us.

What's in between?
What lies in that dark zone?

Who the hell knows?!?

Whatever it is, it's there.....to be dealt with either by going toward it....
or staying behind....
Which is best?
Which is the right decision?

Who the Hell knows?

- " 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
