Merry Christmas - Reflections along a Vanishing Line // Pensées le long d'une ligne de fuite © Chant Wagner 2018
Bits of tinsel cheer riding on a suburban train...
It is said that animals - cows especially - fancy looking at trains passing by
Have you noticed that we humans like to reflect all the more when we ride on trains?
Suspended in time between a point of departure and a place of arrival
We take this alloted, canned time to reflect on life
passing by speedily
hurtling towards destinations known and unknown
entertaining ourselves with thoughts
that wash on the self
Eyes following the path of a vanishing line
