Stop This Train

It's really the little things in life that make me a happy girl. Earlier this week I had to take a train from San Diego to L.A. for a work meeting. It was my first time. Why haven't I done this before? It's so incredibly relaxing! I found myself a little space on the second floor and curled up with a book. Every now and then I looked up to take in the gorgeous view of the coastline... and on the way home I even ordered myself a glass of wine (at two in the afternoon! I know, what a rebel). The whole experience made me feel... grateful. I found myself humming one of my favorite songs the whole way back. Lyrics after the jump!

By the way, have you ever been inside of San Diego's Santa Fe station? It's beautiful! A one-way trip from San Diego to L.A. via the Amtrak is about 2.5-3 hours long... in case you're interested in taking a little trip.

"So scared of getting older
I'm only good at being young
So I play the numbers game to find a way to say that life has just begun
Had a talk with my old man
Said help me understand
He said turn 68, you'll renegotiate
Don't stop this train
Don't for a minute change the place you're in
Don't think I couldn't ever understand
I tried my hand
John, honestly we'll never stop this train"
-John Mayer
