Ah, gratitude. We all know it’s the right spirit to maintain, there’s a science supporting its benefits, and yet it can be so easy to lose track of in everyday life. How nice it is that we’ve got a holiday devoted to turning our thoughts in that general direction.

And most surely we have plenty to be thankful for around here. Besides the beauty of early winter in the mountains, we have neighbors busy organizing feasts like the ones that follow. If you don’t feel like organizing your own this year, here are the folks who’ve got you covered. Happy Thanksgiving; here at the Watershed Post, we’re grateful for you.  Read more

This weekend: Shop local, shop the Catskills

Above: The Hudson Valley Hullabaloo features indie crafters and makers selling their wares in Kingston. One of the many vendors that will be there this weekend is Wishbone Letterpress, which is run by the Hullabaloo's founder and co-organizer Danielle Bliss and her husband Joe Venditti. They make snazzy cards like the one you see above. Photo via the Hullabaloo blog.
