A Winter's Passing

I borrow the title for this image from a movie (made several years ago) that starred Zooey Deschanel and Will Ferrel - a Very interesting and unique film i might add.

But my real purpose, here, is simply to depict the feelings and moods of this winter, in my mind....Things are changing for all of us - and the season seems appropriate for the changes that are happening.

In this country, we are facing many challenges and disturbing developments. I must assert that we all should support each other and march forward.
We have no other choice.

May Peace Be With You!

- " 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
