Life on the train can bring back memories from the past. For instance the man sitting with his wife in the dining car is the same that we shared compartment with three years ago. Suddenly, just like a train changing tracks to an unused siding, we are deep in conversation about past adventures. After finishing dinner we are once again back on the main track but with rekindled memories ready to be explored.
Drinking memories of adventures past we climb mountaintops in thought
We continue travel eastward in Carpe Diem and I choose to be a little sidetracked here. It happens sometimes that you meet people you have met before.. and suddenly it feels like you have traveled elsewhere..
I’m terribly behind in commenting. It has been a lot to do at work and also this haibun serie takes a while to get together. My ambition is that it should be consistent together.
