That was almost an anxiety dream

Dreamed about unpredictable bus lines: some buses inexplicably looping through parking lots, some buses trying to imitate light-rail trains, some buses letting people off on the middle of bridges, some buses seeming ready to go through buildings to get places, but which places? Never a place I wanted to go. And walking -- which I do plenty of in reality, because Portland's a walkable city -- apparently wasn't going to get me where I ultimately wanted to go.

Yeah, TriMet's changing a bunch of bus lines, including a couple I use a lot. Maybe at some level I'm worried about it. Don't worry, Me, you'll figure out the changes and adapt to them. Starting your own bus service won't the way you adapt...
