Savoring Peace and Quiet
When you are stuck living in a metropolitan area and have to rely on public transportation, you really come to love summer, unless your bus isn’t air-conditioned.
Coming into work today, my neighbor and I discussed the fact that school was soon to start again and how we had better take advantage of a nice quiet bus for a few more weeks.
It is not only students who carry backpacks, but the bulk of them seem to do and they always seem to hit people on shoulders as they go by. Not that most are doing it intentionally,but with some I wonder.Don’t kick me kid-I am not making you go to school.
When you are in a field like I am, and you are talking and listening to folks all day,
you have to learn early on to savor any quiet that is in your life.Granted when school starts,most of the kids are quiet coming in because they are still sleepy.There are always a few thatare wired up from the night before.
I never had to put up with this on the train and oh, how I miss it. I sneak in 1 or 2 times a
week on it , either home or to work, and it is such an adult pleasure.Doesn’t make me miss my token days at all!
