After five long years, I am finally mobile once more. These past couple months, the morning commute was especially dreadful.
I'm singing a different tune now, though. Getting to work is no longer a miserable experience. In order to avoid traffic jams, I take the scenic route and drive along the lakeshore. Instead of being bombarded with other people's idea of personal hygiene and being a victim to the STM's predictable unpredictability, I enjoy the lovely breezes coming off the river, the trees, the people taking their four legged friends for the morning walks. The sight of a scrappy little pooch tugging on his leash to sniff every possible square inch of grass always brings a smile to my face.
I have also "discovered" talk radio. Keeping up with the news and current events by way of television or newspapers has never been my thing. Now I'm hooked. I'm up to date on what's happening in my city and abroad.
Montreal music radio is horrible and in the past I would just chose to either drive in silence or to pop in a CD. Now I'm being entertained on my daily commute by something I chose. Love it!
Hi! I'm Chris, an empty nester living in Montreal and making the most of this stage in my life. I love cooking for friends and family, DIY projects, decorating and writing.
