    Confessions of a Public Transit Commuter is a collection of vignettes similar to ones that many people witness every day as they ride the rails to and from work. Yet, do these people really observe, as the author does, the minute details of appearance and behavior of other passengers? Do they think about the weather in any other way than how it inconveniences them or sets the tone for their day? Do they appreciate each sunrise that their Maker has created for them? In this book, Gary Hulsey shares his observations during several commutes, sometimes including his interaction with a fellow commuter here and there. He describes what he sees and hears on the train, bus, and at the stations with technical accuracy. However, these descriptions are softened as he interjects feelings or emotions evoked by his surroundings. Hulsey’s aptitude for writing is revealed when he paints word pictures such as, “…sponges her lava-like river of loquaciousness.” Before each vignette is a quote from... More > various spiritual writings. Each one is noteworthy and almost as powerful as Scripture itself. I believe these quotes keep the book grounded. If the reader is honest, he or she can see that the spiritual matters reflect reality, whereas the physical world is as transient as a puff of smoke. Confessions is a short, easy read. But it is packed with descriptions that cause the reader to imagine he/she is there on the train or bus him/herself. I found myself looking forward to reading a summary of the next day’s commute just to see what new people and actions would surface and what wisdom would be cited.< Less
