report from afar

Much of the country is flat.
But some of it isn't.
I've been knitting some socks. (I know, you're shocked.)
The sleeping compartment was tiny.
The Art Institute of Chicago was amazing.

LA has been a glorious, hectic blast, and we'll be back on the train tomorrow.
It's been fabulous to get out of my head, out of my house, out of my rut. Nothing like a trip to get things moving and flowing again.

so glad to "see" you again, i have missed my daily dose of you :-)) aren't trips wonderful to clear your head and be able to open up again to opportunity, travel really does that for me.

What a wonderful trip! Thanks for sharing those photos, very cool! I love the last one, especially, the train tracks just keep going....there is something wonderful about those tracks...old fashioned...going someplace, coming home....all sorts of thoughts ramble thru my head when I see them....

I am so jealous -- the Art Museum looks wonderful. I have been to the Field Museum but never the art museum.

Thanks for sharing the pictures with the words. :) I find that the flat parts of the country makes me appreciate the not-flat sections that much more. And it is truly impressive to see contours in the land rising up in front of you when there are only plains surrounding you. I'm thrilled that you were able to get out of your house and head for a while. I can't wait to hear what your brain has been thinking of in the meantime. :)
