As we were traveling east through South Dakota, We stopped at Mount Rushmore National Historic Monument - I had never been there but Barbara had - In addition to the well-known memorial to four US Presidents, (Washington, Lincoln, Jefferson and Theodore Roosevelt), there is a monument in process to honor Native American Chief, Crazy Horse....This is a current view...in a few days, I will present the final conceptual view.
Finally, please allow me to thank all of you for your patience in my absence...We are presently in Vermont where we plan to stay for several weeks. Hopefully I can resume visiting your blogs very soon now....Thanks to you all ;-) <3 Denny
** 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
