A Walk Across the Hudson River

Good Morning, God!

Yesterday Kit and I and our dear friends Nick and Pam — who are in the East visiting their son and family — walked across this former railroad bridge. Judging from the Informational Signs, it was renovated in 2009 — after serving for over 100 years as a railroad bridge.

So, in a sense, God, it was a walk Back in Time, as well as a mile walk across a Major American River. The Indians called it “The River That Flows Both Ways,” referring to the tidal flow up from the Atlantic. If I remember right, it takes the tidal flow 4.5 hours to reach the bridge here at Poughkeepsie.

Then in 1609 Henry Hudson sailed up the River — and it was a key part of our transportation system from then on. Hmm. From then until now. Actually, God, I woke up this morning thinking — this renovated bridge was probably a stimulus program to bring tourists to the area, an area that badly needs the economic help.

How Times have changed, God! And they are changing even more rapidly! Sigh. The Economic Path seems to have moved on a Westward Path. Europe to our East Coast to Chicago to California and now to China and India.

Couple this with an email this morning about the closing of many of our Public Libraries. I feel unhappily uncertain whether We Americans have the Will or the Wisdom to take Positive Action. Please, God, bless all our leaders, large and official, and small like the rest of us.

Story teller,
