"A Hill in New Jersey" - (a Story of cooperation)

Posted by
Denny Jump (Bellevue, WA, United States) on 16 November 2017 in Landscape & Rural.

This is the story of a Hill in Western New Jersey:
The Hill was sad and lonely - it was very bored..
But, one day in summer, the hill thought of an idea!
"I Know!" the hill shouted, I'll ask each tree on my slopes to have a different color for the autumn season! That should liven things up!"
When the hill told the trees about its plan for the fall, the trees erupted into applause! Applause so thunderous that the seismic meters at Rutgers University in New Jersey registered an earthquake!! -
But it was not an earthquake....

Later in November, each tree hlad selected it's color and was wonderfully displaying its chosen colour....
and the beauty of autumn was amazing....
And the Hill and the Trees were so excited!
And all who passed by, were amazed and overjoyed!

So, that's the story of the Hill in New Jersey and how cooperation won the day.

- " 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
