Recently, I’ve been taking public transit around town more and more. The advent of the Canada Line is one reason, and another is that since I’ve been carrying the Android-flavored Internet in my pocket, travel time isn’t necessarily downtime. Plus, as I steer thousands of pounds of steel and glass and so on around town, the proportion of my mind that’s thinking about carbon-loading keeps increasing unnervingly.
Also, I happen to live in a spot that gives me superb access to public transit heading pretty well anywhere. (Vancouver cognoscenti: In the 16th/Main/King Ed/Cambie quadrangle).
Also, when you’re not driving, you can take pictures, for example of rainy gleaming streets.
Damn, it’s getting dark early these days.
