Midnight Train

Strange thoughts as I take the midnight train.

Season 1, Episode 7

When I lived in Toronto I took the late night train to work.
It was quiet and we weren’t sardined in a metal box.

Because of this you could allow yourself and your thoughts to drift on the tracks. Be careful though you may fall asleep, I’ve done so multiple times.

Humanity is different when the sun goes down.
Our thoughts turn inward as we grapple with our mortality.
There’s less distractions, time constraints and appointments.

I’ve used these late night train rides to write about my fellow passengers: the drunk, the sober, the hipster and the pacifist.
