The Beautiful Jade

Posted by

This image shows a portion of the Huge Jade Plant that graces the front are of our son and daughter-in-law's home in Vallejo, California. Jades are absolutely beautiful, in my opinion..and they grow for years and years, if kept well.....One word of Warning, however: The Jade "leaves: are highly toxic to cats, if eaten, so keep them away.

Tiny blossoms appear from these little white buds once or twice a year in the Northern California area....

- " 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
