Winter Dream Sunset

Posted by

Going back 3 years into the archives - I still can't get over the tremendous beauty we experienced in Vermont during December, 2013. We had a severe ice storm that year just before Christmas. After clearing the next day, we were treated to a golden sunset that was unbelievable.
Reminiscing about this event, I couldn't help but dig into the files and pull this one out. I hope you don't mind :-)

** 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
