I saw a robin this morning. A very plump, foraging robin! And being the crazy bird lady that I am, I asked, out loud, what it was still doing here. There was a pile of puke in the stairwell coming up from the N train. My commute, door to door, took me only 21 minutes. An orange juice and a banana cost me $3.00. Pirates have captured 7 ships in 12 days. And I just discovered a hole in my pants. In a very compromising place. And it aint no small hole, either.
And so is the the most nerve-wrangling night of them all! Let's breathe that collective sigh of relief we've been holding in our bellies for so long. Let's open our hearts again to hope and change and A NEW DAWN! Good things await us, ALL of us, creatures great and creatures small. I feel it in my bones. I really do.
"The road ahead will be long. Our climb will be steep. We may not get there in one year or even one term, but America -- I have never been more hopeful than I am tonight that we will get there. I promise you -- we as a people will get there."
