Hop on this Train
Most of us have some connection to railroad tracks. I remember walking the tracks as a child. Now I live near the "hub" city, an old railroad town. I have a grandson that loves trains, so our outings involve visiting the train museum.
Pictures of tracks, like in this picture, make a wonderful metaphor for our life stages. There's the proverbial light at the end, though in this case I think that's a jackalope running down the tracks off into the distance, his future full of surprise.
Artistically, the horizontal and vertical lines can be interpreted in so many ways. The weft and warp of life. A knitting design (bit hint right there). I love that there's a sense of going somewhere, even though it's not clear. I feel like that many days!
