SEA —> PDX via Amtrak.

This whole trip has been crazy pants.
I like it.
Currently, I am Portland bound on a rather awesome Amtrak. Thad Cockrell’s voice has breezed past the screen door to my heart and had a seat on one of my rocking chairs. The train whistles over him occasionally and I have moments where I simply cannot believe that I am here. It’s like I was picked up mid-stride on the treadmill my life tends to be and placed in the middle of the beautiful Pacific Northwest.
That mid-stride though, it was rather grand. Preface: back here, Andrea & Alyson & I had the privilege of meeting Denzil & Rahul. You call it random, I call it Jesus, as we shared a table and some wine and New Years Eve in New York City through a meet-up with some mutual friends of friends. End of preface. As Denzil is now in Baltimore, he hopped on an Amtrak himself and came on down to DC to spend some time with both @hotbenham and myself, even if it was for just a few hours.
We didn’t even know he was definitely coming until the morning of.
I told ya…Crazypants.
It was really really great to see him.
Denzil, thank you for coming.
