"For anyone who's ever wondered where they begin and their work ends, The Typographer's Dream is a smart comedy in which a typographer, a geographer, and a stenographer obsess over their professions and identities--a story of borders, letters, fonts, and friendships."

I left the store and mailed some postcards behind the post office and on my way back I saw that the small group had indeed turned around, and at an increased pace were beatin' feet back to the train station never knowing of all the charms of Main Street's East End.
Perhaps it really is the expectation of a destination and not the love of the journey that drives the soul forward. Just keep in mind that when you finally get there, you may have a long way back to the train.
