Train Song

(above: mom's graduation with my grandparents)

I traveled by train for the first time and was really grateful for the opportunity. As the train car rumbled past abandoned stations and sleepy Maryland towns, I found myself both sad and happy. My grandmother died this past week and I miss her a lot. Also, I miss my family. It was so nice to spend time with them last week. My cousins are the bomb-- all so smart and different and creative. Among them are designers, architects, filmmakers, writers, singers, guitarists, entrepreneurs, parents, lawyers, bankers. Get all of us into a big room and you won't be able to pull us away. A lot of late nights in Arizona sharing stories, eating, and remembering halmonee.

A melancholy song to remember lost loved ones by ... and a great video of John Mayer's song, Stop This Train. Oh man, this song makes me cry sometimes.


  1. it was a long crazy week for you. i'm glad you're settled back into your place again, for now :*

  2. sorry about your halmonee's passing. My thoughts and prayers to you and your family. Love you!
