#WestNewYork , one of the 3 towns in #NoHu that share a continuous stretch of park starting 60th St on Boulevard East, has in recent years done some beautiful renovations - providing a peaceful and picturesque stroll. Families, joggers, bicyclists,ñ and even tourists enjoy this stretch of promenade on beautiful clear days like this. Have you enjoyed a magical moment here? #publicfountain#publicparks#hudsoncounty
I am struggling to rhythm my rest. Joy plays out like dancing sky eyes and I am bound, even constrained to heavens delight crying need at my ankles. Yet, I yearn for refreshment, for Sabbath, for stopping, for relief. .
So, this gold nugget from Mary Oliver because, though weary, I know the earth is fresh and full of lavishly answered prayers today - abundant and overflowing and specifically full of precious grace, enough and more for this moment. Enough and more.
...And your spirit
carries within it
that is heavier than lead—
if it's all you can do
to keep on trudging—
there is still
somewhere deep within you
a beast shouting that the earth
is exactly what it wanted—
each pond with its blazing lilies
is a prayer heard and answered
whether or not
you have ever dared to be happy,
whether or not
you have ever dared to pray.
—excerpt from Morning Poem by Mary Oliver
I'm staring down a full weekend, followed by a full Monday, followed by my up, up, up n' away to #Italy 🇮🇹 ✈️ on Tuesday. Can you sense the anxiety?!...

I'm preparing the best way I know how: with a #naturetherapy run through a sunlit park. I think #MotherNature knew what I needed this morning and she delivered. ✨

My last post was at Freemans Mill park and while it's a beautiful local place, it's always completely littered with people's trash and it's disgusting.
This is the picture I took that day of all the trash I collected just in that small area. It was all I could carry. ♻️ALL of this trash was RECYCLABLE. On top of that, this park like most, has recycle bins!!! Right next to the regular trash bins! But the people who left this trash here were too lazy and didnt care enough to bring it with them and dispose of if properly on their way out. ❌STOP LITTERING, LOWER YOUR WASTE⚠️
And tbh, most of this was all from stoners who smoke at a park and then leave all their trash behind. Literally at least 3 of those plastic bottles are make-shift bongs. There were blunt wrappers everywhere, as well as plastic bags full of empty snack bags and other waste from a gas station.
Its ridiculous how little people care about the environment they live in. Seems like the people who come here to smoke don't care at all that it's a beautiful place in nature, they just use it to hide from authorities to smoke weed and leave. Have some respect for our environment. We're better than this.☯️ - #regrann
