Traveling by train is a unique experience that gives us the opportunity to, unplug from our devices, meet new people, exchange stories, and ponder life's mysteries. As we travel together, we learn about our similarities. This project began with one story, one experience when I met someone on an extended train trip across the United States. I made a friend that day, but not only just one. There were several people who honestly began wonderful conversations with each other. We left that experience knowing that the world was a better place, or at least a more familiar place for us. I want to share these experiences with others in quick, simple, recorded conversations. I'm trying to make a difference one person at a time.
