You may not need to know that I HATE HATE HATE the Termini train station in Rome. My experience the first time I went almost kept me from going again. Yes, this time is was the "fear of the known" instead of the "fear of the unknown".
However, as many of you have heard me say, "if I did it once I can do it again". And that was what I had to hold onto. I won't go into the gory details except to say it was just as traumatic the second time as the first.
When we heard the assignment to paint a story with two or more characters, I had one to tell.
Once I finally boarded the train, I saw all these people.
