A PARANORMAL ACTIVITY

If you’ve ever ridden on the train in the wee hours of the morning in a big U.S. city like Chicago or New York, you know it’s a unique experience!

(My objective: re-create the mood. I live in the country now so it’s been some years since I was brave enough ~ or fool enough! ~ to do this, but you can take my word, I used to do it all the time and this is rather what it’s like!)

You’re never sure what’s real in the nether-world between the darkness and the light… the shadow-realm between the surface and the inner Earth… the surreal Limbo in between the Sane and the Crazed. Sometimes, you’re not even sure if you’re among the Real People or the Apparitions in the night!

Fact of Life: You can take the girl out of the city but you can’t take the city out of the girl. Hey, you don’t get these sorts of memories growing up in Podunk, Iowa!

(Inspired by my favorite classic train song, above)

For Charlene. Remembering… !
