Anyhow, yesterday's commute went as follows:
- Walk out of office
- Walk two blocks to Cascade Farmers Market
- Purchase two pints of strawberries and a pint of raspberries, all picked earlier in the day in Mt. Vernon, WA. (Buy local!)
- Walk 3-4 more blocks into my apartment.
Can't say I was spent. Still, if I was yearning for a taste of my old commute, I got it. Because almost as soon as I got home we jumped in the car to head to Cougar Mountain... because why go to the gym when you can hike? After a spell of stop-and-go on I-90 through Bellevue, the wilderness awaited.
I'm not trying to brag. I am trying to note the virtues of the urban lifestyle, though. The way I see it, life throws enough at you... why give yourself a stressful commute?
