Commute, originally uploaded by Manolos in Space.

I love riding BART to work everyday. I love that it gives me a chance to prepare myself mentally for what's to come and forces me to take time out for me. I love that I can share my time and space with all kinds of people, from a man in green tights to a woman with bath sponges in her hair. I love that makes me feel like a part of a community. I love that at the end of a long day, I can look back at the train and see something this beautiful. Thanks.

A Series of Personal Questions

  • When did I become all the things I hate?
  • How could I allow myself to become the model of anger, impatience, and intolerance?
  • What happened?
  • Where did I go astray?
  • When did I decide to replace all the things that make me a good friend and person with such vile poisonous behaviors?
  • Am I so tired of hurting that I’ve made an active choice to alienate all those who love me?
  • Will that actually relieve the pain?
  • What can I do to make a change for the better?
  • Is it too late to repair the damage?
  • Will I ever be at peace in this life?
  • WTF?
