Catch the Train

The inspirational quote from Debbie at Travel with Intent

The only way of catching a train I ever discovered is to miss the train before. 
– G.K. Chesterton

Make sure you get to the station early

Everyone will be rushing for their train

Always book a seat

Some trains go very fast

“You reach out your hand, but you’re all alone in these
Time passages
I know you’re in there, you’re just out of sight
Oh, time passages
Buy me a ticket on the last train home tonight”

The December theme is TIME. I am sure everyone has found at least one #timesquare, but just in case you are struggling here are some #timesquare ideas;

Timepieces – clocks, watches, sun dials and egg timers
Sayings – Time & tide wait for no man (or woman!), A stitch in time saves nine, Early bird catches the worm, In the nick of time or More haste, less speed
Synonyms – era, moment, season, infinity, interval, lifetime and age
Out of the box – nighttime, downtime, pastime and mealtimes!

On the ground, in the air
