What is it about a train set that brings about a little bounce?
A tiny squeal over the intricate details.
The loving touch of design with a dash whimsey.
Bridges, crossings, and turns.
The conductor blows a horn.
A mission of delivery or pick-up.
The chugging of the engine.
The rat-tat-tat of the train track as it clicks by.
The wonders of the mind that plays.
So that we can play too.
And live vicariously on a trek to a faraway land.
If only, we can be still, and imagine.
We hear the whistle blow.
So, like a forgotten fire, a childhood can always flare up again within us. ~Gaston Bachelard
