Setting the day’s tone

I don’t have a long drive each day working at Peace River Wildlife Center, but I do enjoy my brief morning commute as it gives me a chance to prepare for the events that lie ahead. Quite often, the song playing on the radio helps set the tone for that day. I listen to a fairly wide variety of music — well, a variety of rock music. I like oldies from the 70s and 80s and new alternative and indie rock.

Sometimes I can get impatient driving behind someone doing 5 to 10 miles below the speed limit, especially when the speed limit is only 30 to begin with. But if Cat Stevens gets my day started aboard the Peace Train, I can mellow out, relax and enjoy the view. I watch the birds, swerve to avoid the bicyclists in the middle of the road — isn’t that what sidewalks and bike paths are for? — and mentally arrange my to do list for the day.
