This, my third Tidings program (broadcast in 2008) was based on actual notes from the journal I kept during my move from Manhattan to Mattituck (1999) after which I shared my odyssey during conversations with three others who described the upheaval and the uplifting experiences of their moves. I wrote:
It’s a very big move. It’s the doing of it that’s big, not so much the getting there or being there. It’s pulling up eleven years of roots and hoping not to kill the tree. It’s pruning, shedding, clipping, grafting, transplanting—and taking root again in another soil.
