WIT isn't about walking and it isn't about transportation.
It used to be about those things, but there was only so much I, then a recently retired editor and business writer, could find to say about them. Or, indeed, about historic preservation or community affairs or the quirkiness of the New York City borough, Staten Island, where I and my wife, Manhattan natives both, have lived most of our lives, mostly in the house pictured above near the docking-place of the Staten Island Ferry, in St. George.
Of the 200-plus posts recorded here since 2007, the bulk were written between that year and 2009, followed by restart attempts in 2009, 2010, 2012 and 2014 --- failures all. So what makes me think this restart, in early December, 2016, won't meet the same fate? I'm prompted to try again by the prospect of living with a national leader lacking any of the traditional qualifications associated with the office he's about to occupy or the duties he's about to assume.
Like many, perhaps most people who do what I've done for a living most of my life, I write to discover what I feel and think. Considering what we're up against, being in touch with what I feel and think doesn't seem like an option; more like a duty.
