Music makers and Dreamers of dreams

Dad used to recite part of the the poem by Arthur O'Shaugnessy, it goes like this:

We are the music-makers,

And we are the dreamers of dreams,
Wandering by lone sea-breakers,
And sitting by desolate streams.
World-losers and world-forsakers,
Upon whom the pale moon gleams;
Yet we are the movers and shakers,
Of the world forever, it seems.

As a photographer, I love the pictures that celebrates life, energy, wonder. There are enough media to show us the bad things, it's up to us to feed our minds with the things that energize us.
So when last did you look at a picture for the sheer joy it brought?
When last were you a picture of joy?
We're all cameras, composing a great picture of life.
Indeed we are the picture makers and we are the dreamers of dreams...
