My Love Note:

This love note is not for the place in which I sit, it’s for what I see; the Delaware River. Looking south along your curves that flow under steel and through concrete mountains, I visualize where you outlet to the Atlantic under Cape May and I am humbled. I am reminded that while our city can feel so large, so important, so centric, it is but a spec of land on a much larger rock sustained by a lifeblood that is you. I am reminded that we are all connected, that we all share something. I love and appreciate you for that daily reminder. Hopefully one day all Philadelphians will know and celebrate your beauty.
