Thoughts in Traffic: 243 Quick-fire Notes to Aid Your Outlook on Self, Life, and The Afterlife by Aramide Salako is a collection of thoughts accumulated by the author while sitting in traffic over the last year. I love the creativity of compiling thoughts together like this. I wish I could link together the thoughts I have during my runs.
Each entry in Thoughts in Traffic are full of insight and wisdom. I love the thoughtfulness of each of them, full of a good mix of inspiration, social commentary, and faith. The connection to a Bible at the beginning and end are a nice added touch for further reading.
Because Thoughts in Traffic is a compilation of thoughts over time, it’s a short read, but it is very choppy. I think it would be a better read in one sitting if the entries were organized by theme. That being said, I think the book is excellent for reading as a sort of daily devotional of wisdom.
Sometimes the jargon was a bit much and took away from the reading for me. I wish some of the language was more common, and that would fit more with funtionailty being more like a daily devotional.
All in all, this was a very inspiring read. Some of the entries came right on time for me, providing me with inspiration for things I’m going through my life that I didn’t know I needed. I would recommend!
