I have been commuting 30 miles each way to work for four years and although it is not a terrible distance it is at least an hour each way. How can it be that I have never thought to get a book on CD until now? When I first started the commute I was enthused and bought a 5 CD learn to speak spanish set. I envisioned becoming fluent in espanol and exotic and earthy. Everything went beautifully until I learned there were 7 forms of verbs (I think). That was the end of my exotic earthy transformation. Anyway–getting off the track here….books on CD. Last week a friend gave me a book on CD! It has made such a difference in my commute! My stress level has dropped. I have not uttered my “traffic” word even once at a fellow driver. I am wondering if perhaps I am too involved with listening to the novel and driving on automatic pilot? I noticed that my commute seems to be strangely painless.
Oh and here’s a picture of stuff from my garden.
