Notes from my train ride to Chicago

I’m sitting on the train with the joy of possibilities running through my body (though it may also be the coffee running through my rarely-caffeinated veins). I will miss Michigan, and all the people I love in that wonderful place.

But here, on this train, with only a vague outline of what’s to come, I feel like myself. I feel open and expansive. Today is Journey: Day 1 all over again, and who knows what will happen next?
