We love how Sarah Gailey’s story merges magic and public transport with a wonderful, wrenching effect. ~ Fran Wilde, July 10 The Daily Commute by Sarah Gailey The bus is slowing down and the apiarist doesn’t seem to care at all. This is a problem for us. We have to get to work and to school and to our appointments. But the apiarist doesn’t care about that. They don’t care about anything but the bees and the bus. It’s infuriating. We are infuriated.
my goodness, I loved this story. Just glanced at the start of it while making breakfast, then fell into it and took the ride right to the end.
I think the bee bus is a close second to Totoro’s cat bus - I know there are days when I feel I’m nothing but angry bees…
This is lovely. Thank you so much for the brief transport into a gentler world.
Even for Sarah, who always writes such beautiful things, this was a particularly lovely piece.
