Driving on the Freeway of Love in a Pink Cadillac

Posted by

As I posted this image, the thought occurred to me that the tree branch could be a freeway through pink heaven ....and a good song occurred to me reminding me of Aretha Franklin's hit song "Drivin' Down the Freeway of Love in a Pink Cadillac"

Below is a video link of Aretha Franklin performing the song ..The clip is about 6 minutes long so don't worry if you can't watch it all...
I love Aretha's music, so I get "carried away"y sometimes.;-)

- " 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."

::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
