This is a challenge even in the best of times. On April 1 (today) our blog post must begin with "A". Tomorrow, "B", and so forth, six days a week, Sundays excepted. Simple to describe - hard to do, especially when you get to X.
This is not the best of times. That's no April Fool.
Who am I? I live in the Southern Tier of New York State. I've been blogging since 2009 - daily, since April of 2011. I enjoy taking pictures. I still work full time, although that won't be true by the end of this challenge. Just having a job in this time is something to be grateful for.
My original theme for A to Z was "America the Beautiful" and I am going to stick to that as much as possible. My goal is to bring some comfort and beauty into these most dire of times, as I sort through my more than 10,000 pictures (yes, you read that right) on my iPhone.
A crisis comes to each generation, and our time has come. Will love win?
We need love and compassion more than ever.
These pictures were taken during a festival called LUMA which is held every September in downtown Binghamton, New York. This year, coronavirus willing, it will be held September 10-12.

A final look- Mosaic art in downtown Binghamton.
I hope this post has given you some joy today.
Starting today I'll be hoping to visit some of the other A to Z blogs. If you comment, I will try my very best to visit, so please be sure to leave a link if you want a visit from me. It may not be right away, as I am still working, but I will visit.
"A" Day on Blogging from A to Z. My theme: America the Beautiful.
