Train to Tokyo
This morning I watched the sun rise over the mountains from a train that was hurtling from Aomori at the top of Honshu, all the way into the heart of Tokyo. I watched as the sky lightened and the rosy stain of the new day painted the snow covered mountains in the distance. Watched as the indigo of night melted away, and promptly fell asleep.
