It’s early, the Hudson River is quiet.  The tide has just peaked and will soon ebb. The sun
will top the Highlands on the far shore in half an hour.  The light is changing, the deep blue
night sky has already taken on the pastel mauves, pinks and azures of twilight.  This half
hour between the end of night and the beginning of day is a time to be savored.
