Carrying on with Dreams

Posted by
Denny Jump (Bellevue, WA, United States) on 11 May 2018 in Plant & Nature.

On the petals of a white Azalea Blossom...
Our dreams and prayers are carried along while the madness that encircles us continues on it's suicidal pace.
We dream and we sing as best we can while the hatred swirls around us.
We try to win that struggle with love and music and sincerity
Some days, the progress can actually be seen...
Some days the steps retreat once or twice...
But we continue...
We Must...
Please
<3

** 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
