The only change to our new routine that they are openly protesting is the drastically reduced time with me. I'm trying to figure out how to commute across the bay, work full time and reconnect with my family every day. Since I'm here now on the 5:28 am train heading west, sleep must have gotten shafted to the number 4 slot of those priorities.
The great things about waking up before 5 am?
The air is still untouched by the scorching sun.
The stars are just nodding out.
The chickens are still sleeping.
The passing landscape is shrouded in black and sparkling points of light... reminding me of other more exotic train rides.
"On the way home, night was approaching. I watched the distance grow between the train and the Adriatic Sea. Once the sky was black and all I could see were passing lights and highways and the train was quiet everything seemed familiar again. The night, lights, and people on the train, absorbed in their books and music, are all the same really. The same you find anywhere."
