Springtime, Where are You?

Waiting for Spring has been along ordeal this year....at least here in the Pacific Northwest!

It's Not so much the snow (although we DID get a more than plentiful share), but the
colder temperatures tend to rob our souls of any desire to get outside.....
Now, I know that our friends and relatives in the east will laugh, but that's the story here ;-)

But now, finally, we see evidence of springtime rolling in....The teasingly wonderful sunlight and melting snow and, yes, buds popping out on the trees..!
Just yesterday, I drove by several trees that were actually presenting beautiful little buds
of red and pink.........It surely won't be long now!

- " 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"
