As I sat on the train from Copenhagen to Stockholm, I reflected on nature and landscapes. There was just so much to see of the expanse landscape as the train zoomed-in high frequency. Beautiful cities of Malmo, Lund, Hässleholm, Linkoping and many more were great views. My neck almost jumped off my head as it stretched, moving here and there to get a good glimpse of everything.
Travelling can be exciting and fun. There is so much to see of Nature.
Yes, I mean Nature!
It is captivating
Talking about nature is like trying to know the mystery surrounding life.
Time has made me understand the intricacies of life. That I have begun to find love and beauty in tiny details, in mundane places and even in insignificant platforms. From fine thin lines, horizontal and vertical to the food items displayed on shelves waiting to be purchased.
Every trace of a horizontal and vertical line is a script that tells a story.
Every mundane object lying carelessly on the floor has a tale behind it.
You must look harder, deeper, to see the beauty wrapped in any substance or object.
You’ve got to define that beauty from your own eyes.
It’s up to you to weave a story behind your find.
Life is the center stage
You and I are the actors
Nature is the spectator
That watch our stage dance
Our actions and inactions
The choices we make and the decisions we take
The path we decide to tread along
Our evening walk and our hidden tears
The alone moments and the high times
The Chronicles of our everyday life
Make a good storyline whether it is embedded in gold or silver
Or just molded in ordinary clay
I pondered on so many things as the journey progressed. It was a five hours train ride that afforded me the opportunity to sit still and savour nature. Ruminate over my targets and plans for the year. Jot down ideas as they stroll into my heart. Focus on the moment and hear myself speak to me.
By the time the train came to a halt at the massive Central Station in Stockholm, I knew I had accomplished something by opting for the train instead of flying. I have enjoyed the moment spent with self in spite of the crowd around me.
I walked briskly to the Pressbyrån shop inside the massive train (central) station, to buy a ticket for my destination in the beautiful city of Stockholm.
Work first before I dash out to survey the city.
Armed with my camera, which has become a good companion, I walked over to the counter, to the damsel smiling sweetly at me.
Peace and love!
