Riding the Rails
“One’s destination is never a place,
but rather a new way of looking at things.”
Back in June, I made a commitment to play tourist, right here at home. And so, this has become my summer of planes, trains and automobiles.
On this beautiful Saturday, I rode the Cuyahoga Valley Scenic Railroad, from Akron’s Northside Station to Pennisula and back again. We made our way through dappled tunnels of summer green, accompanied by the swaying clickety-clack of steel on steel.
And at the end of our journey, there was the train, shining golden in the afternoon sunshine. Not my typical subject but part of “a new way of looking.” Of widening my horizons and my expectations. Of opening my heart to the beauty that exists in all things.
Of being a hometown tourist.
