Authored by PJ Carmichael
A sight that melts the unseen heart by the window of the vestibule: pure excitement paints the young boy’s face, a gentle curiosity as his arm extends to point out the latest treasure of the day. Smile unbridled, he turns to his father and en- courages him to see the blessings of sunset for himself. With careful wonder, the man directs his attention towards a new horizon. Now he sees what the young boy sees. And all I can do is watch the embrace as the train passes by.
