What if you spent every day looking for One Beautiful Thing?

Virtual Thing of the Day: 4/27/20


I grew up watching noir films, and so I always thought train travel would be so romantic. But when I started taking the Long Island Railroad and then the NYC subway to commute every day, that did away with much of the romance for me.

Then last December, I started again daydreaming about someday riding the Orient Express. But now in the days of COVID and heightened awareness about contagion, train travel seems like it may never feel the same again. Not to worry. The internet has us covered, as usual.

It turns out some of the world’s most scenic train experiences are available online. Yay, YouTube! (And yay to my Lady Twin for finding these remarkable videos!)

I have committed to spending part of every day looking for at least one beautiful thing, and sharing what I find with you lovelies!

  2. 1955 my grandmother who raised me wanted to visit her sister in Alameda CA. We went by train from St. Louis MO there and back. 1955 was how everybody that wanted to go some long distance traveled. There were not commercial airlines back there. 🙂 there were no ATMs and no Cells phones, don’t know how we made it Hal
