Contemplation - Love - Family - Friends

Dwelling in my mind...:

Contemplating on where I stand in this life these days;
what is my "position?"
How do I believe and Why do I believe;

The only calmness I sometimes can get is the smooth "music" that comes from the birds,
and the water that softly laps upon the pilings supporting the pier....
and the REAL Music that always brings comfort and encouragement;;

Family and Friends, new and old, try to build my confidence with their love and beauty.
This source of love assists the contemplation.....
And the contemplation results in a return to the ones I love....new and old

** 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
