By Cycling

For about a week I’ve been bicycling to work in the mornings. I
haven’t been killed yet, which is good. But I think the best part about
it is that it wakes me up. I arrive and feel very alert. I haven’t been
drinking tea to lift me up in the morning, and I haven’t really needed
it. Partly because it’s much more physical activity than I normally do,
but I think it’s also because I’m avoiding the subway.

The subway ride is always very tiring. Standing in a dim tunnel with
a bunch of other people who don’t want to be standing in a dim tunnel.
Then getting in a car filled with people sleeping, or wanting to be
sleeping. And the background groaning of the train. The waiting. Much
more exhausting.
