She writes: “My husband and I were out riding our motorcycle one Saturday and saw a sign for Trio (pronounced with a long I). I had seen this sign many times, but had not seen this little town. So we drove through and the old post office caught my eye. I felt it represented Trio because the town is slowly dying. I understand that Trio use to be a thriving little train community, but the trains are gone now, and the town is reverting into just a few buildings at the cross roads.
“These little towns remind me of what use to be and puts my imagination on overdrive. What ghosts are wondering the town? Does one still hear the train whistles? Were there cattle pens for holding animals for shipping to market? Where was the general store? Did the general store have a pickle barrel, and sell boiled peanuts and RC Colas? These are some of the things that I think about when I see an old, dying town.”
