Hey, I started a blog!
After watching friends like Mati, Kim, Sarah and Chris blog so admirably, I thought...why not me? I have many random observations to share. I can take a photo or two. I'm definitely as opinionated as the next person.
And I have to admit it. Sure, the blogosphere abounds with intelligent content (repeated 1,000,000 times, but who's counting?) But what I most enjoy is just reading about what people are up to, especially people I know.
Why the title Waiting for a Train, you ask? Well, I've always loved the song by Jimmie Rodgers--the lyrics are about a hobo who tries to hop a train, but has no cash to bribe the brakeman, and ends up sleeping alone under the stars. It also reminds me of being a city dweller, and waiting for a million MUNI and BART trains, and somehow enjoying it each time, just being a part of it all.
So me, Jimmie, and the J Church welcome you to my blog!
