I fell in love with trains after watching "Romance On The Orient Express" Staring Cheryl Ladd. It was from then on that I associated trains with romance: the venue for the ultimate love story. But nothing of such happened in real life of course, no trains, no Orient, no Express. The sketches remained as innocent drawings of my many wishes.
The blurry sketches of that mysterious man came into focus eventually. He didn't quite match the tall, dark and handsome figure I had in mind all these years. He emerged from the misty, smoky background looking somewhat perfect for a smurfette five foot something person, all blue, quirky and goofy, just like me.
