Commute Ponderings…(Part 2)

Yesterday, on the bus, I had a strange moment of realization. The kind of moment that you notice and feel like a dork for noticing (if that at all makes sense). Anyways, it happened at a strange and very coincidental time. This strange occurrence could not have happened on a better day for me (or worse day depending on how it is looked upon). So, by this point I guess you just want to know what it is I realized already. Well…I was sitting on the opposite side of the bus than I normally do.

Every day that I ride the bus, I always sit on the right side. There were two girls, talking, blocking the aisle this time (and I wouldn’t dare enter into that awkward social situation of trying to venture through a dense, liberal-politics conversation). So, naturally, I took the first empty seat I saw, which happened to be on the left hand side of the bus. Am I weird for noticing this? I dunno, but this day was an off day anyways and it just seemed to fit right. I was called mysterious by a complete stranger in one of my classes, my friend and sister came into town for an unexpected visit, and I actually had something to say in my poetry class. Given these occurrences, I believe that I can safely state that sitting on the opposite side of the bus just felt like fate.

Have you ever done something out of the ordinary just to mix it up. Sleep on the opposite side of the bed or take the back way to school? I feel that doing little things like this can help keep life fresh, even if it is minuscule. Even the tiniest change in my daily routine can help keep my brain on it’s toes. I feel as if I am stretching my mind and thoughts in ways that are only accomplished through Gnana Yoga practices.

So sit on the other side of the bus for one day and see how it makes your brain react. If not, just push through the chattering post-structuralists and take the side that you prefer.
