I’m still high on the election. Whenever I feel a down moment, I just remind myself, “Obama won!” and I perk right back up. I have been obsessively watching video clips of influential people’s reactions to the victory, like the Maya Angelou clip below. (Get ready to tear up, folks). The best part is, when I open up my laptop, I find an open website that tells me Diene has been doing the very same thing – googling for speeches by and about Obama. I am grateful for the shared interest we have – one that I think especially admirable for someone who can’t legally vote here.
My dad stopped for dinner yesterday on his way through town and we all went out to dinner. Great fun – and definitely grateful for the suprise visits.
