They (my family members) did not coddle me unless I was sick. So when I heard the faint sounds of my “friend” approaching, my heart jumped for joy. As it passed by it sang its Locomotive Lullaby. I felt “nurtured”, touched, and connected. I was gently rocked to sleep by the powerful vibrations, but never fearful of them. It informed me that there was a world further away that I had not yet see, but by power, might, and ingenuity, I would be able to see it one day.
