Trains are wonderful... To travel by train is to see nature and human beings,
towns and churches and rivers, in fact, to see life.
I love Agatha Christie, and this quote matches how I felt this week. I noticed how you can often see into people's back yards on a train trip, getting a glimpse into how people live in a country. Plus, as you watch the scenery go by, there is a slower speed that feels mellow. I enjoyed the scenery and feeling decadent ordering a coffee and sandwhich at my seat. You can almost imagine you are on a train long ago, thick amongst one of Agatha's plots.
This painting: This week we have gotten to see a bit of the Canadian countryside and it is lovely. Our train from Montreal to Quebec City had to stop on the tracks to let two different trains go by, so I took that chance to capture my view from the window. Lovely to get it finished before the subtle jossling started up again.
Wishing you a week of beautiful scenery.
