Keep It Moving – Tea and Trains


“Time goes faster the more hollow it is. Lives with no meaning go straight past you, like trains that don’t stop at your station.”
― Carlos Ruiz Zafón, The Shadow of the Wind

It makes a person question his or her travel choices.

(No, this post is not a New York City Metropolitan Transit Authority (MTA) free-for-all.)

Go ahead. Pour a cup of tea.

Freedom of movement is relatively easy to take for granted. It’s easy, that is, until movement becomes restricted. Then we long to move.
