1:30 AM the morning after (11-5-8)

what a night.

I went downtown to share election night returns with the Obama crowd.

Watching the evening unfold was a great show -
by the time of Obama's well worded acceptance speech.
Hope suddenly seemed like it was worth believing again.

I even found myself waving a US flag
like I haven't imagined doing since pre 9-11.
It felt really good to do.

Tough days will surely follow ~
and only time will tell if the promise of a thoughtful approach to world problems will prevail.

But, at least it seems within the realm of possibility ~
in a way that was impossible with the corporate driven cheney/bush crew
