Appealing for Gracious Love

Posted by
Denny Jump (Bellevue, WA, United States) on 16 April 2019 in Plant & Nature.

In these times, I (and, I think, many of us) find the days filled with anxiety and nights cluttered with confusion and despair!

The only relief that I seem to get is the sight of natures’ beauty, the sound of music that I love, and the consolation I receive from my beloved friends and family! ....Even with all of these things, I must appeal in my mind and soul for strength and hope,

love and Peace!
Sanity and tolerance!
Understanding!
These all seem to be fading away so rapidly.

Appealing for love and graciousness....Plese

** 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
