Just a Beautiful Day!

Posted by

This past Sunday, March 25, was one of those days that just makes one feel guilty for Not getting out and enjoying the outdoors. This image is the Sammamish River ("suh-Maah-Mish") in a beautiful surrounding parkland that has open areas as well as recreational areas for sports, dog-walking - Off Leash Dog areas, Hiking boating and picnicking. I took a little hike along the river on the "undeveloped" side of the river...I was glad I did. In the distance was the Cascade Mountain Range and all sorts of waterfowl were getting ready to start their families for the spring (If you get my point ;-) )

Finally - I am so very sorry for being absent again these past days....all sorts of stuff going on...very sorry - But Thank You All for being so kind and visiting my blog despite my absenteeism..
I Love You All :-)

- " 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
