September Desktop

I suppose I have transit on the brain: last month I read Taras Grescoe's Straphanger, which is a fantastic book about city life around the world and the transit systems that keep it vibrant (or at least, that's how I read it). I also watched a fascinating video made by the company that's building a new underground line in the north end of Toronto. Tunnel Boring Machines are...insane.

I don't own a car, and I don't see owning one anytime soon. I have a bike, but actually it's sitting quite flatly in my backyard at the moment, and will probably sit there until I work through my trust issues with Toronto drivers. I actually really love to walk. If I know I can get there in 45 minutes with my own two feet and a good podcast in my ears, then that's my first choice.

But walking doesn't make for the most scintillating of illustrations.

Happy September, lovely people.
