As always, time moves along it's merry track, oblivious to the rise and fall of those in it's path and especially of those in it's wake. You can't stop a locomotive.
Sometimes, the great 'debilitator' comes along and says that, indeed, the locomotive has been stopped. Peace reigns and there is nothing to fear, not even fear itself.

Blazing in full glory, it's something that you just can't miss. Well, it can't be missed if one is actually looking for that sort of thing.
For some, standing on the platform of life, waiting IS the game. For others, knowledge has been gained and the wait for the next train begins.
For still others, there is no wait as they board the train which comes at their beck and call, completely unseen by the busy beavers, so fervently working away at their 'tasks'. Duty calls.

Excursions continuously embark on adventures only imagined. Where are you going today?
