A trainride to the edge of Nostalgia

On the Edge of Nostalgia—Glimpses of Time on a Train
by Olivia Rossi
Your Personal Trainer

Have you noticed how some
people sit on the edges in trains . . .
Looking out windows . . .
musing off into “somewhere” . . .
far, far away . . .

One, looking sad,
wiping a tear . . .
alone and lost in her thoughts . . .

Another one, smiling,
holding life in her arms . . .
a moment forever hers . . .
A little girl, giddy,
bouncing up off her seat . . .
her first time riding the rails . . .

An old man, resting, content . . .
eyes closed, book open . . .

Trains take you forward
and trains take you back . . .
Happy times . . .
Sad times . . .
Young times and old.
Feeling the edges,
some soft and some not . . .

People connected . . .
people apart . . .
sitting on their own
edge of time . . .

Of all ways to travel, trains are the best. They are the best for getting away, pondering, dreaming, sightseeing and living in the momemnt. Give me a train ride anyday.
