Photo taken with my lovely un-smartphone because my camera’s battery was dead.

This is the train tracking kiosk at the Union Square station. It is shiny and very easy to use. It doesn’t talk…yet. I have not witnessed how the kiosk reports news of delays, sick passengers, police action, fire. These are the things that cause me great anxiety.  Not all the time but sometimes. My temperature rises, heart palpitates, emotional equilibrium disintegrates  when a train crawls to a stop due to ‘train traffic.’  I am not alone but the mini-breakdown still happens. Unpleasant and true. 

The kiosk will do nothing to alleviate that fear but I like that it exists.
