I have been itching to visit Marathon, Alpine and Marfa. I'd like to get there by way of train sometime soon. It seems to call me this time of year. I'd like to stay at the Antelope Lodge in Alpine because it seems so familiar. I'd like to visit and spend some time there because I need to see and feel all that empty space. I miss empty space. My Grandmother has said if she could, she would like to come along. She likes empty space too. She spent a great deal of her childhood outside of Rocksprings, TX. Yet another place where my thoughts often drift too.
