The Lone Duck - "In My Solitude"

Posted by
Denny Jump (Bellevue, WA, United States) on 15 November 2016 in Animal & Insect.

Riding the turbulent waters of change, the solitary Mallard holds forth.
The future appears to be even more turbulent than the present - but the Lone Duck forges onward fighting to stay afloat through it all...
We can only Hope!

** 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
