The observation car on the Amtrak passenger train, has got to be the best part of riding the rails. Even on a rainy day, there was just so much to take in while rolling across Texas. After dinner in the dining car, this is where we landed. It is the perfect relaxing space. On this particular rainy evening, just before a brief stop in Austin, Texas, it became the perfect “gathering” place.
Mason is the young man on the left. He too, began in Springfield…destination L.A. His conversations were mostly in “song”. When he left and came back with his guitar, well, I could hardly control myself. Music. Raw sweet music. I get lost in it. I looked at hubby and by the look in his eyes, I could see he was thinking of our “boy band” at home, too. (okay ~ my sons would HATE being called a boy band….but then, I am the one penning this! ) Mason was amazing. You could give him a subject or just a word and he would immediately produce an awesome country song about it. And not just silly stuff….GOOD STUFF! And once he would begin his song, Mike would join in with the hip-hop. It was an amazing evening. There is no other place on earth I’d have rather been.
That really sounds like it’s up there in as good as it gets territory!
