Life is becoming quite a change for me, and most of those that know me know that I don’t like change but know that it needs to happen. I’m writing this while riding on the bus. I know that the reason for me not taking the bus in the past has been that I need to plan ahead and account for that time but today it’s been so easy. And I’ve found that I feel better about the day because I don’t have to drive and deal with people on that level. I love driving, but I hate drivers. Maybe that’s something I need healing for? I don’t know – just now there was almost an accident.
I don’t think that going the straight and narrow in life means taking public transit, but I think that with me I have enough trouble with patience and pride that I think it’s a good exercise for me. Plus it’s nice to be driven. Maybe that’s why I like it – I’m being pampered… probably not. And I get to pray for people. Just Wednesday after taking the bus home I was able to pray for a man who had a heart attack - right there in the street.
I’m now at the light rail. The bus drove up to the station passing a group of 10 or 15 kids playing in the grass, two old men waiting for the train and two middle eastern women walking towards us. This is a great service, a patient way to travel.
It makes me think of why, really we have cars and the like in the cities here if we have a public transit system that’s so cool!
