[Mariam awaits our train at Grand Central Station
My weariness amazes.
As Train #283 chugs northward, the Hudson River, on my left…its water the color of tan mud, is flowing south to enter New York harbor.
It’s going home in a way. So are we.
Almost one month ago we were aboard the Queen Mary 2 and docking in Red Hook, Brooklyn. Fifteen days after arriving home we were packing for ten days back in NYC.
I’m glad I’m not an ambassador to England or France. I’m way to tired to travel right now. How does Bob Dylan go on stage 310 days a year (my estimate)? I mean the man is five years older than me.
I am sore everywhere. My lower back feels like they held the annual Yuma Rodeo on my L4 & L5 vertebrae.

So it’s time for me to go home, right? And sleep and rest from so much traveling?
Is it time to regroup, write, paint , read, think…
And recall Paris, Bruges, Brussels, London, Edinburgh, Dorset and the Atlantic crossing?
Yes it is! But the guide books, the google searches? They will start again soon. And then I will have more blogs to share with all my friends.
