Getting There.

When a crisis hits you never know what you’ll miss. I didn’t expect to miss my morning commute. My wife and I ride to work together and usually rush to get out the door and on the road in the morning. Five minutes, I’ve noticed, can make a big difference in how much traffic we have to deal with. Most mornings there’s not much, but if we leave a little later than usual we’re surrounded by cars, and what all those cars are doing in our driveway is a mystery. Anyway once we park she heads to her office and I set off to mine, and for me it’s about a half mile walk. And it seems like there’s something different each time. I took this picture the Monday after Daylight Savings Time ended:

I’m not a big fan of losing an hour of sleep over the weekend but seeing the sun rise on my way to work, well, it didn’t make up for it, but it was nice.

I started scrolling through my phone and found so many pictures of other surprises on my way to work:

One way or another I find a way to get there.And I find I even miss my desk. Or rather I miss all the little things that make my desk mine.

      Yeah, a sense of humor is the one thing I can’t lose no matter what. As an old song says if we couldn’t laugh we’d all go insane.

    I’m afraid so, and working from home is getting old. I never thought I’d miss going to the office.

      I can definitely see advantages to being quarantined alone. Maybe you could get Mister to add some soundproofing to a workspace for you.

    Since I already work from home, this whole thing has less of an effect on me, but I do miss walking. I’m not getting as much exercise, without a purpose for my walk.

      I miss walking too. It occurred to me yesterday that I used to walk about two miles every day, or at least most days of the week. Now I walk from one end of the house to the other. Fortunately we have a fairly large yard and yesterday I went out and paced back and forth like a caged panther for half an hour.

      That’s a pretty good cover but, yeah, Johnny Cash did it better. Johnny Cash did everything better.
