Considering Jobs Within Walking Distance
When I worked at Turtles Records, I lived less than two miles from the shop and although I had a good car, I would walk down Nolensville Road to work from time to time. That walk did so much to help me really get to know and appreciate my neighborhood better. It wasn't quite the internationally diverse area that it is now, but I still felt enriched to know a world beyond that in which I was raised.
Anyway, I'm in Hermitage now and I find myself walking more out of necessity than desire, but the good vibes from the small journeys are still with me. To quote the good people of Poi Dog Pondering, "You get to know things better when they go by slow."
