The Daily Dose of Zen, TalkFrank style!
words and photo: F LoBuono
Breathtaking beauty can be found virtually anywhere, and, everywhere. One just needs to open ones heart to see it.
This photo was made while riding my bike along the Hudson River in Haverstraw, NY on a late April day. What makes it interesting, at least to me, is that it looks as if it were taken in some remote, pristine location. However, it is only about 35 miles north of America's largest city and is flanked by a power generating plant and a gypsum factory! But THIS is what makes scenes like this so special. It could have been EASILY missed if I had chosen to focus only on the plant and the factory. Still, they are all part of the same landscape that makes up the incredible diversity of the Hudson River. In the end, like all things, it depends on what you choose to see, and what you choose to remember.
