Commuting: a mini photo essay

Since I started the new job back in mid-April, I’ve been going into the office in Seattle twice a week. It’s a huge time suck and not something that I will do long-term, but I’ve been pleasantly surprised at how much I enjoy it in real time. In the early morning, an hour drive with Dean drinking my tea, then an hour on the ferry while I meditate and write and read, followed by a mile-long walk through downtown Seattle; repeated in reverse in the evening, of course. I am feeling a bit wistful for the routine already this week, knowing that this is Dean’s last week of classes for the term so I’ll be driving myself and taking a shorter ferry very soon.
