July 4, 2017 - A Question....

Posted by
Denny Jump (Bellevue, WA, United States) on 4 July 2017 in Landscape & Rural.

The Beauty of a full moon hovering over a fluffy cloud- all awash in sunset colors....These seemed to be the colors that represented America....and in a large way, they still do. But so many things have happened here in the USA during the past 10 months. So many things have happened all around the world in these months.
And here we are - July 4, 2017 - Independence Day for the USA...."The 4th of July".
Who knows where the next days and months will take us....Many questions exist....But we move forward and those among us who ave a heart and who have a soul, we must all do what we can to engage the hatred and embrace love and compassion...
My Love and Best Wishes to you all...

** 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
