On the Lookout

In Vermont, the danger of an approaching storm seems imminent....
But Vermont is on the Lookout (see the tower in the lower portion of the image)....THE FOLLOWING IS A CORRECTION TO MY EARLIER TEXTBTHAT IMPLIED THIS TOWER WAS A WEATHER SAFETY TOWER: July 30 2018...The Tower is part of the Air National Guard airstrip and facility so hopefully they are safe.

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"
