Welcome to my blog. I share with you everything I love from culture and community to food and tech.


We Watched the Train

We Watched the Train

We Watched the Train

I held you in my arms as we watched the train go by

Ooohs and ahhhs escaped your tiny mouth

Single finger raised towards the sky

As if summoning more trains to the track

The first train we saw together

Shared over an emergency feeding

In the backseat of a blue store's parking lot on the west side

Screams of hunger and thirst were the only sounds escaping your tiny mouth then

Today we watched the train

Cool morning breeze blowing through our hair

Rumbling flatbed cars rolling past at a steady pace

Urgency vanished as did our agenda

Age of Innocence

Age of Innocence
