Fog on the Hudson
It was a foggy morning. I sat in the Hudson Gallery of The Thayer Hotel at West Point (yes, the West Point) this morning trying to listen to the discussion, but all I could do was look out the window, fascinated by the way the trees stood out starkly against the fog.
I wanted to get out of my seat and go outside and take pictures. But of course I couldn't. Instead, I tried to sneak pictures from where I was. In essence, through a glass darkly. And yet you get the idea, in spite of lights reflected in the glass.
Later, as the morning wore on and the fog wore off, the opposite bank of the river (the Hudson) began to emerge. I can imagine this is spectacular in the fall. Still, for having to spend 4/5ths of my spring break in meetings, there's at least a view to take me away.
