In case we’ve forgotten, Laguna and Orange County do have a perfectly good public bus service (“Sally’s Fund to continue Susi Q service for seniors,” May 7). While there is a need for the services Sally’s Fund provides, it would behoove all of us to pay a lot more attention to the existing services we already have in our community and make better use of them.
The more people ride the bus, the better the service will become. I find I can meet all my needs by the public bus, bicycle, walking and occasional ride-sharing. I don’t go to places that require a car. Riding the bus enables me to meet people I would not otherwise meet, to read books and to get in plenty of active meditation by chanting on beads.
It’s very therapeutic, and there is no road rage, parking problems or other nonsense. Driving is a waste of time because you cannot read or do other productive things. It provokes stress and anxiety, and it is environmentally damaging.
