Riding Muni just to read a book
Local-ish author. Nice touch
Some people like to read books while riding Muni. Muni rider Kristin is one of them.
Sometimes I ride the bus just to read. Set up camp on the back right window seat with apples and peppermint tea. ride a line all the way down and back again… There is comfort in being alone in a crowd; wearing strangers loose around my shoulders like a handmade shawl in winter. Tuning in and out to the steady hum of engine grumbles, passenger mumbles. Looking up between pages to notice secret street art alleyways and quirky cafÃ©s. Feeling my seat mate’s arm absently meet mine as he checks the time, and I just leave it there. Enjoying this straddling two worlds, in motion, heel to toe with no place to.
