Among the many beautiful and touching monuments and statues around the Washington State Capital in Olympia is this Monument: "Winged Victory".

This statue, erected on 30 May 1938, is dedicated to World War 1 Veterans. It includes bronze sculpture with a 12 foot-tall Winged figure and other figures of a soldier, sailor, Marine, and Red Cross Nurse.

This wonderful monument immediately caught my eye before we even got out of the car....Amazing and gripping...I hope you like this.

- " 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"
