Nearly every day I don’t have client meetings, I take the bus. It means a minimum of 10 blocks of walking (5 blocks each way) and instead of worrying about the road, I stare at my phone, stare out the window, cloes my eyes and think or (best of all) close my eyes and don’t think. So I’m more fit, less stressed and promoting less traffic and less fossil fuels. What is not to like?
Whenn I was in high school, I was bussed across the city as part of the desegregation initiative, which means there were a number of times I took public transportation nearly 2 hours. Those were simple times, and riding the bus today — as a 40-something — takes me back to those times.
