QW 1009 “Taking trains”

No offence, but I see no point taking trains for no purpose. I mean, I would never enjoy taking a train, passing all the stations along the line, reach the terminal station, and just go back the exact same way. Some may say they’ve “completed” or even “conquered” the train, but I’d never understand what makes them so thrilled to say such a thing, seriously. What are they trying to achieve? Why do they need such a sense of “accomplishment”? Are there any other “productive” ways for them to invest their time, effort, and energy? I think I understand a saying “Process is more important outcome”, but is it applicable to it, really?

When I take a train, I always have a specific purpose. I have a specific destination to reach, and for any other purposes, I wouldn’t take any train. Once I’m on train, though, I’d try making myself as comfortable, amused, and happy as possible. Knowing that I need to spend some time for some reason in that confined space anyway, I’d enjoy the train ride to the fullest, rather than being frustrated or unhappy. Still, it’d never be my main dish to savor because I know full well what the “real” dish would taste like.

There seem to be such language learners that love taking trains, enjoying the ride, taking pictures of the trains, talking about anything regarding trains with their train-loving buddies for hours and hours. They just love it. That’s perfectly okay. It’s just beautiful that you have something in your life that amuses you, entertains you, and makes you feel less bored.

Meanwhile, I’m walking under the sun, looking up to a sky, singing a song, talking to a super-vigilant street cat, tripping on a pebble, being embarrassed, smiling awkwardly to passers-by, and following my path, with a hope that I can see you somewhere, someday.
