That said, I thought about this morning how nice it would've been to write a fantastic little vignette on riding trains and being free-spirited. Instead, I worked my little toosh off from New York City - Penn Station to Providence, save an hour nap and a snapshot or two from Instagram.

I love trains. Something about a train station just breathes whimsy to me... with the very specific exception of Penn Station, which is an awful place. Yet, train stations in their glory evoke a sense of vintage and old school romance, a la 2009's Chanel No. 5 commercial... and while, working on a train on Monday morning is stressful, there is nothing better than getting off at my little station and Providence, heading for a sandwich at Café la France, and all the while singing Simon and Garfunkel songs in your head.
