Thoughts on the Train

I'm coming home on the N train, happily watching the buildings go by as I listen to my iPod on shuffle. An old favorite that I haven't heard in a couple years comes on: the Dixie Chicks singing Cowboy Take Me Away.

There was a time when I absolutely identified with this song, especially the lyric that says, "I wanna look at the horizon and not see a building standing tall, I wanna be the only one for miles and miles." Today, I heard those lyrics and thought, That sounds terrible.

Almost immediately I laughed. It's startling sometimes to come across such changes in yourself.
