F*CK THAT TINY TRAIN

With breathing and possible postcards…and a liftoff from unwelcome routines.

 
In which we(you) explore our father’s communist model train lair (is it his? At least it’s a safe space) in progress while we float in an optimistic nihilism(It’s restorative, We promise) and wait for hope to fall from the sky(It will?) and our voices to be heard from the top of the mountain. With breathing(together) and possible postcards(sent to you)…and a lift off from unwelcome routines(like…maybe we just soak our hands in water in the best feeling water, just because). And hopefully we’ll all feel a littler lighter and little more clear and we can look out of the windows without fear of filters and enjoy our heartbeats…phew? Phew.
