The journaling says it all: "Once again behind the wheel. Sometimes I can't believe how much time I spend driving. About five hundred miles a week since last year. In the beginning, I really resented it as a total waste of time. The trips with kids in the car were fine since we could chit chat, but it was the trip home that really bothered me. I'm not sure what, if anything, has changed but more recently it has become my most creative time. To begin with, since both my husband and I work from home, it is the only time I am completely alone. And it is the only place where it is really quiet - or at least I get to control the noise. Ideas for layouts, designs and solutions just appear out of nowhere in the white noise of tire hum. Sometimes I listen to music, jumping from station to station to avoid inane chatter. Sometimes only complete silence will do. There is no (safe) way to jot notes so I stop at the park on the way home and jot notes to myself so I won't forget. Now if only my car had auto pilot it would be perfect."
