The 04/10/13 Joy Jar

9 Apr

Moi is a ‘bus chick’ and rides public transpotation ALL OVER Seattle. She writes and watches people. The buses in the Puget Sound region are run by a variety of agencies and that may be the problem. Moi mostly rides METRO which gets her there. The gridlock which stymies Congress also stymies Washington government. Many folk who take the bus may see their service cut because of the way public transportation is financed in Washington. Many will consider buying some gas guzzling clunker and further crowd the road. The powers that be don’t undertand the value of a really good public transportation system. Today’s deposit into the ‘Joy Jar’ is a public transportation system.


You can’t understand a city without using its public transportation system.”

Erol Ozan


Public transit situates us so that we are given license to accept what’s right in front of us, but will likely arouse our desire to compare our narrative to someone else’s, to give ourselves permission to speculate upon a person’s private space, or life, with no fear of recourse or punishment.”

Julie Wilson, Seen Reading

The person whose problems are all behind them is probably a school bus driver”


A bus is a vehicle that runs twice as fast when you are after it as when you are in it”


In the dime stores and bus stations, People talk of situations, read books, repeat quotations, Draw conclusions on the wall”

Bob Dylan

Lots of people want to ride with you in the limo, but what you want is someone who will take the bus with you when the limo breaks down.”

Oprah Winfrey
