Your life is a legend of the environment in which you live. For me, it is the Hudson Valley. To be environmentally conscious and to live a full life, a Hudson Valley resident should believe that his life is a story within a greater story, that of the Valley. We can achieve a love of place and color in those legends by following the voices that lead us to the most unlikely places.
There are, in fact, places to which we are all mysteriously drawn. We may be able to rattle off their names like clockwork but not the reasons why we are drawn to them. These are centers of energy that I call power points; places of interest that pull us in either by their appearance or just the way they make us feel.
