Mind Travel

I whiled away some Metro wait time this morning staring at a map in the station. This is one for Reston-Wiehle, the current (but I hope not forever) western terminus of the Silver Line. I fixate on the southern exit,  how I could cross Sunrise Valley Drive at Commerce to Wethersfield then cut through the golf course to Durand and Purple Beech.

From there I'd take Soapstone all the way to Lawyers, Steeplechase and home.

It's a walker's fantasy. An hour-long walk at best. It would involve the kind of time I don't have anymore.

For me, for now, the route is for mind travel only. A way to let the walker's imagination wander while the walker's body is doing what it has to do.
