Creating calm
By Mary Friedel-Hunt

I went into Madison yesterday to do a lot of shopping that has been on a back burner for a long time. In all, I visited seven different stores that were spread all over town. That meant I was driving through traffic all day long.

I am a Chicagoan, having spent the first 46 years of my life there. I am quite used to traffic, rush hours, bad drivers and congestion. When I lived in Chicago and the suburbs, I thought nothing of delays and the frustrations of traffic. But I have lived in small town USA for the past 27 years and have lost touch with what it is like to fight traffic for an entire day.

I usually buzz into Madison to a movie or dinner or to Costco or a grocery
