It is so easy to slip into automatic pilot for the journey to work. Today was different. I would like to thank the driver who welcomed me to his bus with a chirpy “good morning”.
Since prepaid fares have been introduced in Sydney there is little need to interact with the driver. Being greeting was part of the story; the driver also played familiar songs and wished everyone a good day as they alighted.
I tell others about the beauty of Australia, usually referring to the beaches, outback and rainforests. Today I was given several moments in urban paradise.
The songs included Don’t you forget about me by Simple Minds, Really wanna know you by Gary Wright and Paradise by Coldplay.

Sounds like he enjoys refreshing people’s memories with some of the oldies or perhaps introducing some people to them for the first time.I think it’s a great move on his part to want to interact with his passengers and brighten their day.
I get a good feeling when someone tells me one of the songs on my blog has brought back good memories or maybe that they haven’t heard a group before and want to hear more. I of course have a great time every night deciding what’s going on the blog and listening to it and others.
Have a Great Week
Thank you, I like your take on it
