The lost view

I’ve driven across this bridge every few days for thirty years. There are bridges, and there are bridges; this one had the most magnificent view of downtown available, and it’s a miracle I never rear-ended anyone while gawking at the skyline, the old Stone Bridge, the Mississippi. …. We’ll have that view again – but it’ll take a generation before it’s no longer tinged with regret and remembrance.

Here in New York, we know the feeling, James. It will never be the same; but with God’s help, it won’t feel this bad as long as you think. Our thoughts are with you.
