I have had a long trip. As many of you know, I went to Los Angeles with my daughter on a ten day adventure. We went by Amtrak, because as you also know, this mama doesn't leave the ground. It was a long and wonderful trip.
Today, at my meeting, the topic was about staying in the moment. How hard that is to do. But when you are on a train, with no internet, and no phone reception, you have to stay in the moment. For someone like me, with such a huge attachment (addiction?) to my phone, this was hard. But it was obviously not hell. To follow are some of the pictures I took on that train. This country is big and beautiful. I am glad to report that we are a long way from running out of room.
Also, you know I did end up doing the Ricki Lake show. I will write about that later. For now, here is some of our beautiful country and out train adventure. This is what I mostly saw out the window or on the train.
I will be back to myself next week. But next one I will tell you about our actual trip to Los Angeles. It was a blast. And the time with my girl was such a gift. She is a good little traveler and a pleasure to be with. For me to say that about traveling with children, you know it has to be true. Enjoy these pictures.
|This was in Montana somewhere, I believe.|
|My girl, switching trains and getting tired.|
|Montana, again with the beauty.|
|Trees turning color in moody fog. So awesome.|
|Unreal colors right?|
|Sleeper cars are expensive, tiny and worth every penny.|
|Big sky in Montana|
|Over a bridge we went, almost as scary as flying.|
|I believe this is again Montana. Maybe Oregon.|
|Some flowers on the dining car table. Fancy.|
|Ocean 120 miles of untouched beach.|
|Rich folks eating. Not really. The conductor never shut up. I was like "okay dude, we get it. You know your shit."|
|Most beautiful shots of the ocean ever.|
|I couldn't stop saying, "WOW!"|
|Frank was texting me from Bob's phone.|
|And finally, my son carved penises into the side of his pumpkin. Clever kid, clever. |
