I walk across railway tracks on the way to two of my favourite walking trails.

In almost 3 years of power walking, I’ve been fortunate to have to wait for only one train to pass.

On this day, the train had stopped for a few minutes before the crossing, allowing me to safely get across and get the photo.

“I like trains. I like their rhythm, and I like the freedom of being suspended between two places, all anxieties of purpose taken care of: for this moment I know where I am going.”
