My commute is back. Some never stopped but, for me, the easing of restrictions allows a gradual and deliberate return to the office.

Getting to the office means commuting — in my case, a twenty to thirty minute drive. I had commuted to work my whole life — until March of 2020. As with so many of us, working remotely cut my commute to a few steps.

    For almost 15 years I have been home-based but never home-bound. My commute was to and from meetings and appointments usually walking, which I thoroughly enjoyed and to a large extent miss. It's interesting how that time managed to get filled up with other things.

    My commute is very small (grateful)--sometimes I leave my home early to get my head together for the day and some evenings I drive around to decompress...
