Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: It takes a train to cry

Bob Dylan says that “it takes a lot to laugh, it takes a train to cry”. The train is our daily feature but I’d say we are done with crying for this lifetime.

About crying on and off the train I’ve written here. It was necessary to bring us together, but then the train stopped being the symbol of separation. Seeing that it brings you back home to me every working day.

Here is a tour of our trains and tracks, starting at home, in Capalbio station, and coming via Roma full circle back home. Only the featured photo was taken rather far away from us on our way back from Siena.

    1. I’m very glad you did, Cee. I know there are (too) many photos. I always find so many and it’s so hard to make a cut.


  5. I loved this post because the train is important in my life, too. The local commuter train, that I rode for many years and my husband still does; the train that takes me to visit my son in Washington, DC. I love hearing the train whistle that can come at any time of day or night around my home, being close to the station. And taking a journey on a train, that’s just wonderful. I have only gone as far as Pittsburgh (7 hours) but my son has traveled all the way across the US on a train. That is my ambition someday! Now I feel I know your train, and that is something to know about a person, I think.

    1. Thanks, SSW! This line is from a song by Michelle Shocked off her cassette which we bought in Venice on a family outing a loooong time ago and listened in the car and soon learnt all the lyrics. The title was Short Sharp Shocked. Much love for her.
