A magical frost shower at Hudson Crossing Park. A magnificent spring day when Congress Park is in full bloom. Stunning images of herons, water lilies, dragonflies, and sunrises on the Hudson River, and many more reminders that there is so much beauty in our little corner of the world. It’s uplifting and hopeful. It helps people who have moved away feel closer to the area they know and love, and it makes you aware every day of the ordinary blessings that surround us in this region we call home. I’d love to send all this gratitude your way!
