This is what I love about this time in the Airstream. I am discovering simple pleasures that I might never have taken the time to fall in love with if I hadn't agreed to this hair-brained adventure. You guys, a bath is amazing. If you have a bathtub, go take a flipping bath right now. It is SOOOO GOOD! I don't have a bathtub in the Airstream, but I do have a shower, and even a shower, just a lovely hot shower where you feel completely clean at the end...heaven. Good food, good wine, warmth coming off a wood-fire stove, strawberries, CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES... my list can go on and on.
It's almost a bit ironic the things I am realizing are so special to me in this season of life. I am on the road so that I can experience huge, amazing, special things, AND I AM!! I have had super-sized extraordinarily special experiences, and I am forever grateful to the universe for all of them. And even so...without fail my favorite time of day is when Phil and I come together in our tiny Airstream kitchen and cook dinner together then sit on our couch to watch an episode of one of our TV shows as we eat dinner. You guys, anybody can do this anywhere. The things I do during the day are amazing; capturing weddings, and hiking in National Parks, and seeing this extraordinarily beautiful country in a way that very few people ever get the chance. I live a heightened and special life right now, but in the end those moments chopping veggies and experiencing a story together each evening are still my favorite moments of the day.
Anyway, I was just thinking about this thing, so I thought I'd share it with you, because I'm a photographer, I'm a traveler, and I'm a person with strange thoughts, too ;-). Hope you find your train, or some other simple pleasure today.
