Reconnection - to Maintain and Resist

Posted by
Denny Jump (Bellevue, WA, United States) on 28 January 2017 in Landscape & Rural.

Springtime is not here yet....but we know it is coming;
The trees tell us - the sky tells us - the air tells us;
We try to walk through the trees and up the path with an effort
to refresh our mind, soul, and heart.
We try to enjoy the beauty which is real, because we love it;

But in our mind, we realize that hatred has won the office...

So we use the trees for reinforcement;
We use the sky for fortitude;
We use the air for strength;
As we work to Resist the fire from the Minister of Hatred!

** 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
