Crossing the wheatfields from Ephrata on, I propped my pillow against the window, turned off the light, and watched the stars. No city lights to pale them down, they sparkled like a Christmas tree. Transported through time and space, I could be anywhere now, dream anything.

I must have dozed a bit. Spokane was waiting for us. Another train would join us now. The Portland section coupled on, back up and bump, forward, hitch your wagon to our star, yes, we're twice as big and twice as long and twice as many people now.

I didn't have to do a thing but close my eyes and go to sleep again.
