Writing the Rails on the way to becoming the best version of myself that I can…
I hope that you didn’t come here looking for a blog about trains, because despite the title, I know next to nothing about those behemoths that make me sit at the crossings, watching flashing lights when I really need to get home to use the bathroom.
But I will say that buried somewhere deep inside, I’ve always harbored a tacit fascination for trains because they seem to always travel in the direction of the far-off horizon. They journey to places you can’t see, to places mysterious and grand, magnificent and new. They carry people on trips of discovery. Sometimes, it’s the trip itself, not the destination, that becomes the adventure. Mystery and mystique reside in opulent dining cars, romance and passion embrace in cozy sleepers, and adventure and intrigue mingle in coaches perfumed with pipe smoke.
And I hope that this blog will offer me the same sort of adventure and offer me an opportunity to explore. And to write those rails to becoming the best version of myself as I can.
