After getting dropped off in Greenpoint from a boat journey on Newtown Creek, one scuttled across the Pulaski Bridge to Long Island City and the subway towards HQ back in Astoria.

Along the way, the Long Island Railroad was performing one of its daily tasks.

Big Allis loomed over LIC, as always.

Traffic was heavy, as always.

The Queens Midtown Tunnel teemed with vehicular flow.

As always.

The 7 train was delayed, as always, but it eventually appeared.

Luckily, I found a seat and was able to take a short rest.

At Queensboro Plaza, the trains came and went, as always.

I was waiting for one traveling on the Astoria line to arrive.

Three or four 7 trains later, a W showed up.

I headed home, deep in thought, as always.

“Every time might be the last time.”
