Appreciating the present

“Happiness, not in another place but this place…not for another hour, but this hour.” Walt Whitman

I walk by this old train station every day without really noticing it. This morning the blue sky, trees leafing out and a new paint job on the building caused me to notice and appreciate the intricate plaster castings on the building. I spend a lot of time thinking about the future and often forget to appreciate the things and people right in front of me.

Sunset Station, built in 1902, stopped functioning as a train station in 1998. The building is now rented out for events.
