The Revolution WILL Be Televised...

FI dedicate this Image and Post to the Memory of George Floyd .


This image, coupled with recent (and ongoing) events, has inspired me to adjust the title of this post:....

....Gill Scott Heron's Poem and his song by the same title, "The Revolution Will Not Be Televised", spoke of the basic fact that change will not occur on anyone’s television. Instead, change will occur in real life, on the streets!.

What we are seeng here and now ARE on the television but they are real! The events are literally on the streets!
This Imge instantly brought that song to my mind!

I wish you all - Peace, Freedom, Love and Coexistence!

- " 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
