Today almost seemed like a vacation day as I was quite productive personally but I did also put in a full day's real work for the office. It is really amazing what a difference it makes when you convert four hours in a single day from commuting to "available". I've lived with the commute for so long, it has become rather normal to me. The train is filled with others who live with similar circumstances. It speaks volumes about the human ability to adapt to our surroundings although in cases like this I'm not sure that is a healthy thing.
