Rachmaninov-iPodToday’s call to work was in Silver Spring, Maryland. The commute is a 38 mile car ride. Unfortunately, driving the route would take anywhere from 1 to 3 hours. Rush hour in the greater Washington, D.C. area is simply awful. The commuter rail is a great alternative. It is clean, relatively fast (compared to driving), and allows for a fairly stressless ride to work. Today’s commute was uncommonly nice – thanks to my new iPod. From Woodbridge, VA. to Union Station (Washington), I listened to Rachmaninov’s 2nd Symphony. On the 2nd train ride from DC to Silver Spring, MD., I heard the Strauss Oboe Concerto. After a day of software training, I returned home while listening to Schubert’s 5th Symphony and then watched “The Aristocrats“. The commute has never been so painless, and seemingly quick. Thanks again to the family for the gift certificates – the iPod is amazing!
