Multiple Intelligence

I thought I'd never say this but, I miss riding the subway. I miss the "people-watching, the musical performances, the spontaneous moments of humanity coming together in pain/anguish/joy. But mostly I miss the reading. 

For some reason I wasn't a big head phone user. At the time, I was unaware of the bacteria-increase caused by headphone use, so it wasn't for health reasons as much as safety reasons. I like to have my ears checking for warning sounds while taking the G train late at night to far corners of Brooklyn, even if everything between those ears is checked out.

I read self-help books. Good pieces of fiction I'd missed in school. And every New Yorker magazine. 

I still read before bed, on the weekends, on the occasional airplane. But not at the rate I used to. 

Now, while I commute I listen to podcasts of various sorts, This American Life, RadioLabStuff You Missed in History Class and the like. This new experience makes me wonder if audible version of literature and news will be the norm in the future. For  those of us whose primary learning style is not verbal, (but rather musical, visual, and interpersonal) alternatives to the traditional ways of learning are increasingly useful. Take a multiple intelligence test here to find out what your strengths are.
