"On Winter''s Solstice"

Posted by
Denny Jump (Bellevue, WA, United States) on 24 December 2018 in Landscape & Rural.

On a dark, cold early winter's day,
I walk to the Lakeshore to see the solstice sunset;

As the sun sets beyond the far shore a fearful feeling merges in my heart... and my mind begins to wander:
Will this earth EVER find peace??
Just then the horizon turns golden and my heart regains some hope...
But the rest?
The Rest is up to us!

.......<3....<3....

- " 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
