It’s still difficult to find spare time. Both businesses are doing well, but that cuts both ways. It’s been stressful. Days off are spent doing chores.
It was a year ago that I hopped on the train and rode it through Colorado, Utah, Nevada, California, Arizona and New Mexico. Last night I dreamed about hopping on the train and going as far as Reno then heading back. That idea really appeals to me right now.
It would be so relaxing, because as a captive on a train, there is nothing to do but to eat, sleep, and watch the scenery go by. Forced passiveness.
Why Reno? Because it’s 24 hours from Denver. A day and a night in one direction.
When I woke after the dream, I went online and checked fares for next week. Unfortunately, the fares discourage improvisation. The bedrooms are booked.
I miss hiking and exploring and taking photos. Now we are entering winter, and with the clocks falling back an hour, short days and darkness.
