scenes from a train






a few weeks ago, i took the train from home to the bay area (i went to see tina fey with m in sf!). because i needed to squeeze in some work, i opted not to drive and to work on the train. but then (gasp!) there was no wifi on the train. and for the first time in a long time (because they had no wifi on the train!), i got completely lost in the landscapes outside the window as well as in the landscapes in my own mind.

it was such a lovely ride that i pretty much never want to drive that drive again. the snapshots from the trip make me so happy, not only for their sheer springtime captures but because, in most of them, you can see the reflections from the train windows across the aisle. it makes you wonder if you’re seeing forward or seeing backward. and how many views can a woman take in one afternoon? a lot, i tell you, a lot.

    Looks like a very pretty ride. Traveling by train can be so nice, assuming you have polite passengers nearby.
