It’s safe to say I am loving public transportation.
I love the commute, the culture, the influence it’s having on my ears, my eyes and my heart.
The fact that all I have to do is walk a half of a mile and then sit and read my books for hour an on the way there (and back) is so liberating. One can look at commutes on public transportation as losing time on the road, or one can look at it as gaining time. I see it as gaining time. After all, my mind meets me in a quiet place in the mornings through my books. I feel like Belle from Beauty and the Beast – so thoroughly absorbed and satisfied in the place I go to in my head when I read.
Since I began my commuting lifestyle, I’ve started a number of books. I should probably just go ahead and share them because I’ve enjoyed each of them.
1. “The Locust Effect: How the End of Poverty Requires the End of Violence” by Gary Haugen & Victor Boutros
2. “The Shaping of Things to Come: Innovation and Mission for the 21st Century” by Michael Frost & Alan Hirsch
3. “Wild: From Lost to Found on the Pacific Crest Trail” by Cheryl Strayed
I’m still in the process of reading #1 and #2 because they’re more in depth. Some chapters are page turners and other chapters are harder to get through.
Any books you suggest for my future commutes?
