Trains

During my morning commute on the subway… Saw these two children so excitedly waving and saying goodbye to a passing train.

When did we stop getting so excited about adding trains and cars? We used to love seeing two speeding metal tubes meet and – instead of colliding – race past each other, rattling the carriages with rush of air. We used to come up with games while in the backseats while adults drive – fake shopping, imaginary cooking, painful “yellow car”, and my keenness of license plates.
We are now focused on ourselves. Our phones’ virtual worlds. Our schedules. Our future. Our lack of time. we rarely withdraw to look up and beyond to the world we are in at the very moment.

A reminder to take a moment to see through the eyes of a child.
