Riding the Water - Praying For the Carolina's

Posted by Denny Jump (Bellevue, WA, United States) on 14 September 2018 in Plant & Nature.

A beautiful evening and Sunset over Lake Washington.

As we stand in Kirkland - a city on the eastern shore of this beautiful lake - we enjoy the sunset that we are blessed with....A lone sailboat rides the waves under clouds lined with blazing colors.

Meanwhile, 3,000 miles to the east, the States of North Carolina, South Carolina, Virginia and others are preparing, as best they can, for a monstrous hurricane that is moving slowly, thereby creating even more damage and devastation.

And so as we enjoy the sunset here, we pray for our friends and relatives on the Carolin coastline. Be Safe!

** 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
