In my daydreams, I’m on trains looking out the window staring into some vast, unknown, lonely wonderland. My head is filled with swirling thoughts that seamlessly flow out of my mind in crisp, clean non-cliches. In these times, I’m a famous poet, a well recognized photojournalist, and a throw back to Sofia Loren. Of course, on these trains, I’m just on holiday from my regular life where I live in Uganda communicating with gorillas.
It seems that whenever I’m going from one place to the next I live in an amazing daydream.
I love transportation. I love the idea of going from one place to the next and everything that happens in between.
