The parts that show are what capture my attention…at first.
The broken pier rising above the waters of the Hudson River resembles sentinels making their way from New York to New Jersey. Upon closer inspection, I noticed that they’re also an alert as to how low the waters have descended just since last year. The green algae-covered parts are exposed to the air and sun for the first time in, well, a long time. Evidence of climate change, perhaps?
Currently in the United States, the presidential election process is the part that catches one’s attention first. For over a year, we’ve endured the audition/job interview process via the debates and primaries. Some of the events were more painful to endure than others. We are now, thankfully, in the final stretch of the parts that show.
After that, it will be time to govern.
