Day 1 of many in Germany. Honestly, one my favorite activities while traveling is sitting on long train or bus rides and staring out the window. I am able to understand more about a place by watching it fly in front of my face, delivering no words, just thoughts. Germany feels like my dreams. Like stacks and fields of colored boxes decorated with windows and people, visible by incandescent light. I see totems and cows, symmetry and chaos, all sending me that visceral assurance that things will be ok.
