On this #LaborDay, remember this…just because you put on chinos instead of work pants, just because you pick up a laptop instead of a mop doesn’t mean that your are not a laborer. If your job can be outsourced, you are labor. If your job can be replaced by a computer or machine, you are labor. If you are identified as a “cost” or “expense” on a corporate spreadsheet, you are labor. If your family came here through Ellis Island or more recently through JFK or LAX with the simple dream of working hard to afford a decent life in return, you are labor.
Glenhurst used to be a golf course, but they shut down in the 80s due to perennial flooding by the nearby Passaic River. In a fit of wisdom, they decided to let the land revert back to its natural state. A handful of ponds dot the area. Shallow and muddy at this time of year, they are a great place to see birds, or so we are told. What is amazing is that a giant highway (78) is not too far away, but this place feels so remote.
#Passaic #River tranquil.
