Train Ride

Got to train station, heading to Flagstaff, AZ:  Train #4, Room #4,  in car # 431.

Shared a table at dinner with a man and woman who are devoted to sustainable food: he is working at the problem of energy, says that even the typical renewable energy is a finite source. Great sharing at dinner, great exchange.

The ride was remarkable – so much fun!!  Carl and I turned the lights off and lay together looking out the window, watching the land go by. During the night I woke up frequently, looking to get comfortable in the small bed with Carl, and enjoying each episode looking out the window for a little while – how cool.

We got in at 5 a.m. and the exchanges for this journey began: gifts came at a surprising rate. As we get off the train, an older man mentions Venus looking at the sky;  upon inquiry he pointed it out, then had me step back so  he could show me Jupiter as well! He was a retired astronomy professor.  He gave me a handout pointing out the sights this month. We exchanged information – he is going to Tahiti next year and wondered about stopping on Maui first, staying at Kolealea.

Then, he hopped back on the train: out of sight.
