Title: Every Day for 16 Years
Journaling: Since moving to Madison in 1995 I have taken the bus to work every day. I started on the "E" route from Park Street to downtown. Now I take the 38 bus from our house. I leave the house at 7:07 AM and get to work around 8:00 AM. It can be a cold, wet, smelly and bone-jarring commute. But it is my reality. The saving grace is being able to listen to music that I love and that I can't play at home around the kids. For all of that, I get to pay a $2 cash fare for a one-way ticket. Thankfully though my job has been covering the expense for several years.
