When I was composing this image I lwas struck by the calming sensation that it gave me. To me, this imtage conjures up a peaceful encouragement of hope. ....
In reality, the recent events here seem to be Anything but Peaceful!!
Nevertheless, In the words of the great Musician/Singer/Composer: Curtis Mayfield, "I Plan To Stay a Believer!"...
Belief and Hope, Dreams and Love,... These are all we have right now!
Please Stay a Believer!....
I promise you all, I will Be There With You!

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."

::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
