My name is Henry Clemmons, AKA Kid Denver ( a nickname of sorts I picked up after living in Denver). I currently live in Montreal, via Denver, Prague, and Argentina. I was born in Argentina; educated in both Prague and Denver. I’d have to write a novel to explain how I ended up in Montreal. I don’t have the patience for a novel, so I write my life in slices of poetry; a diary of sorts and therapeutic tool to deal with hard to answer questions that crop up in life. I love music and art and helping people in need. Maybe more to come. But please enjoy my blog.
I do believe in freedom of creative expression:
“If we don’t believe in freedom of expression for people we despise, we don’t believe in it at all.” Noam Chomsky
“Music is an outburst of the soul.” Frederick Deius
“No man has the right to dictate what other men should perceive, create or produce, but all should be encouraged to reveal themselves, their perceptions and emotions, and to build confidence in the creative spirit.” Ansel Adams
“I want freedom for the full expression of my personality.” Mahatma Gandhi
“My music is the spiritual expression of what I am — my faith, my knowledge, my being…When you begin to see the possibilities of music, you desire to do something really good for people, to help humanity free itself from its hangups…I want to speak to their souls.” John Coltrane
“It’s okay to disagree with the thoughts or opinions expressed by other people. That doesn’t give you the right to deny any sense they might make. Nor does it give you a right to accuse someone of poorly expressing their beliefs just because you don’t like what they are saying. Learn to recognize good writing when you read it, even if it means overcoming your pride and opening your mind beyond what is comfortable.” Ashly Lorenzana
You do not have to believe in what I write about on my page. But I do not want to read comments about your disagreement with my interpretations on personal issues. You can express your views on your page. Let’s respect art and keep comments about art.
I respect the art of poetry, of creative expression. If you do not, then this isn’t the page for you.
Now for 99 percent of the rest of you, I hope you enjoy your visit. Be kool, peace.
