Quitting Time (Memories)

Now that I am "retired," it's kind of funny to see scenes like this and get that feeling of a horserace just beginning...Get Home, Quick ;-)
heers!

** 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

Yes, I remember being part of this and the hundreds of thousands of miles sat in cars . . amuses me to watch it out there, now.

Belle photo que je trouve mélancolique (:-) j'aime la mélancolie des crépuscules).
(Accessoirement, elle me rappelle ça chez moi).
Bonne journée aux couleurs flamboyantes !

I see your point with this image Denny. Each time I am out with the dog, I see a huge line of traffic and the sad faces of frustration by the drivers wishing for retirement.

It's better to stay off the streets in the morning and evening rush.
