#fallfoliage New York

One may ask you during this time of year “what are you thankful for?” and I”d reply with the usual responses such as my family, my health, and a job.  As an English Teacher, I’ve become fairly good with rebuttals and modeling techniques.  I respond to every question as if a student was asking them. However, what am I truly thankful for?   Without a question, I am thankful for my family, health and a decent paying job. But what about the earth that we live on?  I never seem to be thankful for the beauty that surrounds us.  I take it for granted most of the time.


On a recent trip to Bear Mountain, I decided that I will hike to the very top.  During my climb I realized how remarkable this earth truly is.  There is soo much land that I’ve have yet to seen.  When I reached the top and saw the view of the mountains, rivers, valleys, and trees – I thought that this is the most beautiful scene.  Something straight out of a travel book. But this picture was far to surreal, no movie or travel book can replace the personal experience.

So what am I thankful for?  In addition to whatever I mentioned, I am thankful for fall foliage and the beauty of this earth.
