Project 365 - On the Rails
I was born and raised not far from here. Growing up in a sleepy little town steeped in New England heritage and family history. I left in 1978 and have lived in Pennsylvania ever since. But, to me, this is still home.
A woman got off the train right behind me. She spent some time pawing through her bag and eventually she pulled what looked like a map out. She looked at it for a while. Eventually she turned to me and asked me if the bus came by here. I paused. I was trying to be kind. There has never been a bus anywhere near here. She read my look and said she understood, I must not be from around here either. No, I said, I guess not.
