Herself: Still smiling because of the Spent the day doing email and computer things. Groceries too. Discovered a rabidly Nazi page of period art. Photos of a new, wider me are depressing tho.
Balance: Taking pictures by the bay. Working on the ship piece.
It’s a humming sound. From above, it seems to fill the air with singing. In the night you can hear the engines roar first…..then the hum of the singing. When you are up close, standing next to a string of cars moving by, there are other sounds too. The thump of a flattened wheel, a screech as a metal wheel rubs on a curve, and a whine when a wheel seems to need a little extra attention.
Only when you have a little distance do you hear the whole as singing. Never will I think of a train as a wholly mechanical thing again.
