train of love

All God's children need traveling shoes.
Maya Angelou (b.1928) poet, actor, activist

the mouse is off on a wander in nyc! posting will resume wednesday.

happy to report the weather has been absolutely marvelous and new york glitters, shines and is just about to burst with springtime energy. actually it is bursting -- we saw daffodils in bloom! cleveland is a couple/few weeks away from that....

a happy st. patrick's day to all.

sláinte - to your health!


photos: platform at 117th st. station, cleveland (okay, not the amtrak station I left from, but you get the idea); insert picture taken with cellphone of the back cover of new york by rail - amtrak's travel guide to destinations from nyc to canada.

p.s. thanks for all the wonderful comments on my theme thursday post. I've been busy nibbling on some blogs in the 'hood' but wandering is taking precedent to computer time (I know you understand!) the computer I have access to is preventing me from posting comments on people's blogs if they have the pop-up word verification things.

Love that photo. Happy trails to you, Mousie.
However, I did expect to hear the strains of Love Train coming from this post. Thanks:>) Now it's just to be roaming around my brain all day long.

Post title made me think of the O.J.s' "Love Train". Hope the weather continues to be good in NYC - I envy you being there!

That photo is a perfect illustrstion for the old blues song line: "Hear that lonesome whistle blow..." Perfect!
