This article offers insights about the author's upcoming book, Serenissima: Venice in Winter. The book was the first joint artistic venture of the author with his wife, Judy Goodman. Doing a preparatory research for the book confirmed that the reporting of a story can be as important as the end result. And it convinced the author of the exponential benefit of networking, To document a key part of Jewish life in the world's first ghetto, the couple talked with a photography laboratory owner, who recommended that they take a guided tour of the old Jewish cemetery on Lido. In the year since the author left the Daily News, the author have been able to pursue his interest in photography and writing. This has opened creative and artistic possibilities for him.
