A picture from last February came on my screensaver a minute ago, and it reminded me of a thought I had that day that I had forgotten about until now.

This was the day my roommate and I were driving to Nashville for my interview for the JET Programme. We took the, ahem, scenic route and som
ehow managed to turn a 6 hour drive in
to a 10 hour expedition. As we drove, I remember thinking that if I got into this program, I would never be able to take long scenic trips like this. After all, Japan has a third of the population of the United States in an area about the size of California. I was a little sad, because I love long trips through naturally beautiful areas.

...I may have been misinformed

I'm so glad you are finding such beauty, Liz, and that you have the heart and mind to appreciate it. Your Grandma Jane would be so proud of you.

i forgot to mention--it's weird to see this post of yours as being dated SAturday, when it is still Friday here :) . .. I know, it doesn't take much to amuse Auntie Maureen . .

You can't beat those views anywhere, Liz...and right through the train window. Is the one pic taken through the caboose? I like the conductor's cap in that pic. And the fall colors...yummy!
