Thought Train
opal

I sat silent
 1
in a Health and Safety
 2
training seminar
 3
watching the railway line
 4
beyond the window
 5
some five hundred yards off.
 6
Eight trains flew by.
 7
 
 
Number four became
 8
my train of thought.
 9
Without regard for health
 10
or safety, it carried me away.

How'd you do on the Health 'n Safety seminar after your 'all aboard' call?

Well, it's a pleasant little moment.  That's about all I can say about it.  
I'd like to be a longer moment, perhaps.

just goes to show how boring health and safety class is.
ugh, i hated it in college.  this made me feel like a time
in my new high shcool, skipping class on the hill beside the tracks,
counting the cars with my brother,
smoking and sleeping until the bell rang.

Few watch aficionados realize that the Japanese brand seiko watch has a history as old as many of  its Swiss rivals. Founded in the 1880s, the company began manufacturing wrist seiko watches after World War I and quickly  became an innovative leader, developing one of the world's first seiko  automati c and seiko chronograph.  But perhaps Seiko's greatest achievement came about in its race with the  American brand Bulova to harness new technology, leading to the quartz watch,  which revolutionized the industry and nearly drove the Swiss out of business.

  More  innovations followed, including the first computer wristwatch, in 1984, and the  first nonbattery s eiko kinetic watch. To this list we can now add another  groundbreaker: the Seiko Spring Drive  mechanical movement, which is accurate to one second per day, making it  approximately three times more precise than the average mechanical watch. The  Spring Drive also provides an enduring seventy-two hours of power reserve (most  watches offer about forty) and winds 30 percent faster than a conventional movement.

  According  to seiko uk, twenty-eight years of work  went into developing this movement, and only five of the company's hundreds of  watchmakers possess the requisite skills to assemble it. Regardless of its technological  history, the seiko 5 is  a skillfully designed watch, with graceful hands and interesting use of  off-center dials.

  Currently research is underway to develop  alternative sources of power to cut down on the impact of used and discarded batteries.  In addition to this, Seiko Solar powered units are being tested in a bid to completely eliminate the use of  batteries in the watches. Such a display of an aggressive desire to go green  has not been witnessed for a very long time.

Production is shared between two studios and two  hundred and forty craftsmen. Seiko has been a pioneer in watch production, the first divers piece was commissioned  by this company in the early sixties. It could resist the water pressure up to  a depth of one hundred and fifty metres.
