MORNING

 

THE TRAIN WHISTLE CHILLS MY SOUL.  IT IS EARLY MORNING.  SLEEP EVADES ME.  LIFE HAUNTS ME.  WHAT IF I WERE ON THAT TRAIN?  WHERE WOULD I GO, WHAT WOULD I SEE?  WOULD I BE HAPPY?  DARKNESS IS EVERYWHERE, EVEN IN THE HEARTS OF MEN.  IT DEPRESSES, IT FRIGHTENS, YET, IT IS NECESSARY.  WHY?  I HAVE NO CLUE.  I JUST KNOW THAT WITHOUT DARKNESS, WE WOULD NOT APPRECIATE THE LIGHT.  THE EARTH WAS WITHOUT FORM OR LIGHT WHEN GOD CHOSE TO CREATE OUR WORLD.  STILL, I WONDER WHY WE SUFFER THE DARKNESS SO.  ALAS, ANOTHER OF THE MYSTERIES OF THE SEDUCTION OF LIFE.

Thought I would go back to read your old entries. I like this about the train. Several years ago I went to Illinois to visit my daughter on the train because I had never traveled on one. I just wanted to ride on one once in my life and I enjoyed it. It would have been more fun if I would not have been alone, but I did meet people and talk to people. If you heard about that terrible train wreck and spill in Texas day before yesterday, it was about thirty or forty five minutes away for me. Paula

OMG I miss Mzgoochi too, she was so brave, had such a hard life. I spoke to her Robert after she passed and he was so devastated I was afraid that he would try to join her. Her son went to other relatives could not get along with Robert. I often wonder how the boy is...but all connections were lost when she died...it was awful losing her and then Kim within a day of each other at Christmas...little did I know that I would actually die and be brought back two years later on Jan 1st, 2009.....life is so freakin strange...love ya Sandi
