Oh and it's shinin' brightly
And I think it's gonna be okay.”—Bob Seger, “Shinin’ Brightly,” from his Against the Wind LP (1980)
Whenever I hear Bob Seger’s underrated gem, I feel exultant. It came automatically into my mind this morning, on the slow, local-stop bus ride into New York City from my home in Bergen County, NJ. From the window of the bus, looking west, I took this shot of James J. Braddock North Hudson County Park, in North Bergen.
