Blue Heaven - Prayer for 2018

Posted by
Denny Jump (Bellevue, WA, United States) on 1 January 2018 in Landscape & Rural.

Seeking peace, we enter into the new year. The mountains seem to be seeking the same thing that we are: Peace and intelligence.

I pray that civility and intelligence can stand strong and that we, as people in a turbulent time, can withstand the hatred that seems to abound.

Humanity does not need any more insanity...it needs a resurrection of the soul! I Pray that we prevail in that search.

- " 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
