Memory

I can hear the trains tonight, sounding their whistles at every crossing. The sound reminds me of camping with my dad as a child, camping by the train tracks in the interior and listening to them all night long. If I close my eyes I can be there, warm in my sleeping bag on my Thermarest, the cold air on my face, the smell of campfire in my hair and on my clothes. And the trains rushing past, their whistles echoing through the valley.

    I get wistful memories with the sound of far-off trains as well… There is just something about them that pulls it out of you.
